The July Multiplex results should be posted by Sunday evening. The holiday created a bit of a delay in reporting from some clubs. There is a 50/50 in handicap, earning a 1/2 yard so the 49’s will not receive yardage. The final event of the Summer Season is the week of August 6-10. Thanks everyone for participating and volunteering with the reporting.
