31- 2-17-23  Close up of Scoreboard with match results using new tiles purchased from Sign-A-Rama in Fountain Valley.   I added magnetic
strips on the back of each tile.  The scoreboard shows scores for each
hole for course designated in C column.  The 'T' column is the nine
hole total.   The right column is the 27 hole total.  The blank space to
the right of the actual scoreboard can be used for anything.   The tiles
are stored on the 9 inch red shelf under the name column plus some extras 1's and 3's on shelf at the bottom of right edge of scoreboard.   The miscellaneous digits on the right are for quick use if needed.  The right most portion is explained in picture # 38.
      The gray part is sheet metal which is magnetic.  I just had to paint the three 2x2' sheets.

32- 2-17-23  Below is the data on the right side of the scoreboard.
I put a plastic sheet over the paper  with magnets on top to hold
in place.  The top document is a thank you letter from Tom and
Dawn Bemiller, owner of  Pro Turf Sales, Inc., installers of the
putting green.  The lower document is a list of people
that helped make the putting green World Class.
