For the men’s member-guest in 2012, we spent hundreds of dollars on ice, and the beer kegs, after a while, dispensed nothing but foam. This year, we followed the example of Michael U.’s fraternity and bought two Kegerators, for about six hundred dollars each. Each one is a medium-size refrigerator whose only job is to keep a keg of beer cold.

While the matches were going on, we kept one of the Kegerators near the clubhouse and the other plugged in to an outlet in the pump house, by the pond on the fourth hole. During the shootout, at the end, we put one of the Kegerators on the back of a maintenance cart and had the golf-shop assistants drive it around:

Later, for some reason, Les took over.

We still needed ice, for soft drinks and so forth, and to solve that problem we rented an entire ice freezer like the ones you see at liquor stores. It had its own trailer and was filled with ice bags, and we paid for just the bags we used. IMG_2484We no longer have the ice freezer, but the Kegerators are ours forever. We keep them in the men’s locker room, of course.
