Additional Murder Mystery Added in September:
Murder is Par for the Course – September 23rd, 5:30 PM
It was the match of the century for the prestigious Porous Pines Country Club. For the past decade, professional champion Holin Wunn had dominated the tournaments throughout the region. His tenacity on the tee and rigor in the rough were unchallenged by any man – but not so when it came to women.
For the past year, the undisputed women’s regional champ, Birdie Bigelow, had repeatedly issued a challenge to the legendary Wunn. She proclaimed that Wunn’s stance to keep women out of men’s tournaments was due more to fear than fact.
With pressure from all sides, Wunn finally agreed to the head-to-head confrontation. Reporters gushed over a legendary battle of the sexes to settle the matter. It would be 18 holes of golf that would go down in the annals of the game.
After 17 holes, Wunn was 1-up. That’s when it became dead-even. For as Wunn teed up for the 18th hole, a deathly silence fell over the crowd. Just as his driver reached the zenith of its arc, Wunn released the club. His eyes rolled back in their sockets and he collapsed. All efforts to revive him failed.
Who could have killed the champion at the 18th hole in the game of his life?

October Murder Mystery:
Death in Them Thar Hills – October 14th, 5:30 PM
It is 1883 in Cactus Gulch, Arizona, near the Grand Canyon. Prospector and gold mine owner “Dusty” Jones dropped dead during a dinner in his honor that was hosted by the residents of the town.
Jones had arrived in town five years before, flat broke and relying upon the generosity of the locals to help him get by. Now, he was one of the wealthiest men in Arizona Territory. The source of Dusty’s riches was the gold mine that he discovered during his forays into the wilderness four years ago. Ever since, he made weekly visits to town with bags of gold nuggets and gold dust to be assayed at the Cactus Gulch Bank. It was widely known that the gold was graded as 22-carat, the purest strike ever in these parts.
Dusty named his mine TAqIlA. Since he never went to school and couldn’t spell very well, it was understood that he meant to name it after his favorite drink, Gila Gold Tequila.
Jones was being honored at a dinner organized by residents and prominent local figures. Everyone drank their beverages of choice (supplied by The Short Stump Saloon) and socialized prior to the start of the festivities. After listening to tributes by the mayor, several business owners and other townspeople, Dusty had his say, speaking his mind about the town and its people. He then raised a glass of Gila Gold, toasted the crowd and sat down. A few minutes later, he slumped over in his chair. The town doctor, present at the festivities, rushed to him, but it was too late. Dusty was dead.
U.S. Marshal Nate Dillman is investigating the incident. Because Dusty was in relatively good health, the marshal believes he may have been murdered. He intends to deputize citizens to investigate.
