Five Birdies with a two-for one

By Leslie Stirling

Tuesday, July 14, was the best weather we have had for a Ladies’ Night this year. I wasn’t there. Hardly seems fair. I did show up for supper on the patio and prize presentation. My goodness, that sounds so formal. What we really do is hand out the winnings and make fun of as many people as possible. They are such a fun bunch of ladies and take it all in their stride. Debbie and I enjoy that a lot but what gives us the most pleasure is making fun of each other.

The Flight 1 winners (sponsored by Stamer Logging) were Kelly McNabney (low gross by retro) with a score of 41 and Karen Peterson (low net) with a score of 43/34. In Flight 2 Ilke Marais won low gross with a score of 43 and Deb Rainer won low net with a score of 51/35. The Flight was sponsored by The Carls (Brian and Brenda). Campbell & Co. sponsored Flight 3. Anita Hill won low gross with a 51 and Jean Webber won low net with a 52/32.5. Low gross in Flight 4 was Lois McInnis with a 60 and second low gross was Lisa Galanov with a 63. Least putts went to Marla Muldoon (13) by retro and Most Putts went to Lynda Fournier (23).

There were many many Pot winners. The Chip In pot was split between Susan Mitchell, Catharine Phillips and Marla Muldoon. There were five Birdies (yes, I did say FIVE). The winners were Karen Peterson, Trish Thompson, Marie Hakes and Ilke Marais. Of course I realize that is only four ladies but Ilke Marais made two birdies so received 2/5 of the pot. Donna Salle scored the only deuce so didn’t have to split the pot with anyone.

You have heard about the Pots and the Putts so here are the Pins. Trudy Forsythe (Thompson Valley Awards and T & T Liquidation), Marie Hakes (AG Foods), Marla Muldoon (Barriere Timber Mart), Jessica Thompson (Gift ‘n Gab), and Lois McInnis (Munro’s Clothing Co.) had long drives. Jessica Thompson (Armour Mountain Office Supplies), Cathy Paul (Barriere Motor Inn), Doreen Landry (Rainer Custom Cutting), Brenda Carl (Sam’s Pizza) and Evelyn Lucas (Station House Restaurant) had long putts. KP prizes went to Donna Salle (Royal LePage), Ilke Marais (MJB Lawyer), Lorie Chambers (Salle Ranch) and Karen Peterson (Barb and Carman Smith). KP in 2 prizes went to Lois McInnis (ELB Ventures), Doreen Landry (Quality Contractors) and Karen Peterson (HUB International). Goody bags of a ball, tees and ball marker from North Thompson Funeral Services went to a number of ladies.

I hope everyone who wants to golf in the July 28 Fun Night – ‘Saturday Night Fever’ have booked their spot and golf cart with the Club house. Looking forward to seeing everyone there.

I follow Lt. Tim Cotton and the Bangor Maine Police Department on Facebook. Tim definitely has a way with words and I always enjoy his offerings. You might want to check him out. He ends each of his posts with “Keep your hands to yourself, leave other people’s things alone, and be kind to one another”. Good words for us all to follow.
