oftball. Bowling. Basketball.
And now golf.
Golf has joined the list
of B'nai B'rith sports. Gary Klinger,
athletic chair for the B'nai B'rith Great
Lakes Region, has put together a golf
league and is looking for participants.
"I did some research during the
winter and now we're ready to put
the league into motion:' Klinger said.
"There already seems to be a fair
amount of interest. I sent out about
75 emails and received about 15-20
responses in two days."
While all the details haven't been
ironed out, here's what is certain about
the league.
Play will begin Thursday, April 18,
and continue for 15 more Thursdays
at Fox Hills Golf and Banquet Center,
8768 N. Territorial Road in Plymouth.
Tee times for nine-hole rounds will
start at 5:10 p.m. and continue until
5:55 p.m.
Two-man teams will compete in a
handicap format either in stroke or
match play. Twenty-eight golfers can
compete.
"I understand it's a long commit-
ment to play that many weeks but we'll
have substitutes available, or we'll give
a team a 'blind' score if someone can't
play:' Klinger said.
Prizes will be awarded to top teams.
The cost is $21 per week, per per-
son. Golf cart rental will be extra.
Klinger said the time is right for a
B'nai B'rith golf league.
"I don't know why there hasn't
been one:' he said. "Michigan is a golf
mecca and the B'nai B'rith Golf Classic
is a popular tournament:'
The 30th annual classic was held
last year at Wabeek Country Club in
Bloomfield Township. Proceeds benefit
B'nai B'rith, BBYO and Hillel chap-
ters on college campuses. More than
$750,000 has been raised through the
years.
Interested in joining the golf league?
Contact Klinger at (248) 229-1816 or
gkslurpee@gmail.com. Golfers must
belong to B'nai B'rith.
Five weeks into the 38th B'nai B'rith
basketball season, Downtown Fox and
Pisgah-Zeiger were atop the league

with 4-1 records.
"We only have four teams, but the
league is doing well:' Klinger said. "I
think the guys enjoy playing at the JCC
and hopefully that will help build the
league"
League games are being played at
the Jewish Community Center in West
Bloomfield for the first time. Walled
Lake Central High School was the pre-
vious league venue for about 10 years.
After a 10-week regular season,
teams will compete in a one-day play-
off.

That's It

The season has ended for the Frankel
Jewish Academy boys basketball team.
It concluded in a Class C district
tournament hosted by Royal Oak
Shrine. Madison Heights Bishop Foley
beat Frankel 70-31 in an opening-
round game played at Bishop Foley.
Oliver Soble scored 13 points for the
Jaguars, who finished 8-13 in Marshall
Miller's first year as coach.

Welcome, Aly

The 10 Michigan athletes who will
participate in the 19th Maccabiah
Games this summer in Israel will be
joined by an Olympic gold medalist.
My Raisman, who performed her
gold medal-winning floor exercise
routine to "Hava Nagila" at the 2012
London Olympics, will compete in the
Maccabiah Games.
The 18-year-old from Needham,
Mass., will be honored in the July 18
opening ceremony at Teddy Stadium
in Jerusalem that will include the
lighting of the Maccabiah flame.
Organizers say this year's Maccabiah
Games will be the largest in history
with 8,600 athletes from 72 countries
competing in 42 sports. Cuban Jews
will send a delegation for the first
time.
Disabled athletes are being
sought to compete in the Maccabiah
Paralympics. Contact U.S. Paralympics
chairman Stuart Greenberg at (215)
300-4150.
Paralympics athletes will compete in
tennis, table tennis, cycling, swimming
and wheelchair basketball.
