Ladies are all smiling to be back on course at Chinook Cove

By Leslie Stirling

In the words of Lionel Richie “Hello. Is it me you’re looking for?”. Well, I am back. Ladies Night is back.

Those months between September and April seem to go by so incredibly fast, although winter seems so incredibly long.

Twenty-seven ladies gathered at Chinook Cove for the first ladies’ night of the season on Tuesday, April 26. The weather was decent and none of us blew away. It was wonderful to see friends, to chat, to laugh, to dine on the patio and (for some) to pick up prizes. (And how many of you now have Lionel’s song running through your head. You are welcome.)

There were two birdies…both in Flight 1, so Theresa Young and Kelly McNabney split the pot. Our gross/net sponsors were Ainsley Gullage from Sun Life Financial, Kelly McNabney from TriPeaks Physio, and MJB Lawyers. Kelly McNabney (39) won low gross in Flight 1 and Theresa Young took low net. In Flight 2 Debbie Rainer (60) won low gross and Evelyn Lucas won low net. Trish Thompson (51) picked up low gross for Flight 3 while Sue Meger was the net winner. Low gross in Flight 4 was won by Emma Schilling (50) and the second low gross winner was Rose Seymour (54). Jeannie Webber had the least putts by retro with 15 while the most putts (28) prize went to Jo-Anne Livingstone. The putt prizes are sponsored by an anonymous donor and we would like to say thank you.

The pin winners (not to be confused with the pot winners) this week were many. Long drives earned prizes for Louise Lodge (AG Foods), Debbie Rainer (Armour Mountain Office), Lorie Chambers (Barriere Motor Inn), and Dorothy Warman (Barriere Timber Mart). Darlene Nickull (Little Fort Subway) had the most accurate shot on Hole 3. Long Putt people were Donna Salle (Munro’s Clothing), Evelyn Lucas (Rainer Custom Cutting), Sue Meger (Sam’s Pizza), Dorothy Warman (Station House Restaurant), and Darlene Nickull (Thompson Valley Awards). The KP winners were Theresa Young (Cindy Leibel Real Estate), Jo-Anne Livingstone (Stamer Logging), and Lorie Chambers (Campbell & Co). KP in 2 prizes went to Rose Seymour (EBL Ventures), Theresa Young (HUB International) and Emma Schilling (Quality Contractors). KP in 3 on Hole 8 was won by Theresa Young (Salle Ranch). North Thompson Funeral Services sponsors the “Driving into the Gulley” or as we like to call it “Rest In Peace” on Hole 7 and there were too many names to mention.

Our Hole-in-One sponsors are Barriere Auto Parts, Alpine Meadow Resort and Bob Stirling. Chinook Cove sponsors one of our door prizes each week and the Star Journal helps out with a spot in the newspaper for this sometimes boring, sometimes brilliant but always informative column.

We have a total of 30 sponsors and I am constantly amazed at how supportive the business community is…not only for our Ladies Night but for all the other activities, clubs, events and fundraisers that go on in Barriere. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

In closing I again quote Lionel who said “I can see it in your eyes. I can see it in your smile”.

You and I are glad to be back golfing with our friends. Happy days are here again. Why don’t you come out to Chinook Cove and join us ladies on Tuesdays.
