(Ladies Golf Teaser)

Good fortune shines on 23, but two not so lucky

Evelyn Lucas and I are not losers …. BUT, 25 ladies golfed on the evening of Tuesday May 18, and 23 ladies won some sort of prize (long drive, long putt, KP, low gross, low net or perhaps just a plain door prize). BUT on Tuesday night Evelyn and I won nothing, absolutely nothing. I did have a lovely time golfing with my buddies. I did have a delicious dinner out on the patio, and it didn’t rain on us which always pleases me. So, I am not bitter, and I am sure Evelyn is not bitter, BUT somehow it just doesn’t seem fair.

So, who are these 23 ladies that good fortune shone down upon? The long drivers were Trish Thompson (Rainer Custom Cutting), Lois McInnis (Sam’s Pizza), Jessica Thompson (AG Foods) and Susan Mitchell (Armour Mountain Office Supplies). Brenda Carl was the most accurate hitter and won the prize from Ainsley Gullage of Sun Life. KP prizes went to Debbie Rainer (MJB Lawyers), Anita Hill (Salle Ranch), Dorothy Warman (Stamer Logging), and Susan Mitchell (Barb and Carman Smith). KP in 2 winnings were picked up by Wanda Amos (EBL Ventures) and Gayle Fauteux (Chad Belbin of HUB Int.). Putting prizes went to Leanna Layton (least putts) and Wanda Amos (most putts), while the Long Putt prizes went to Babes Shanko (Station House Restaurant and T & T Liquidation), Jessica Thompson (Thompson Valley Awards) and Jeannie Webber (Barriere Motor Inn). Balls and tees from North Thompson Funeral Services went to those hitting their balls into the gulley on Hole 7.

Our Flight sponsors this week were Cindy Leibel of Westwin Realty, Campbell & Co., Quality Contractors and the Carls (Brian and Brenda). Low gross winners were Louise Lodge (1), Gayle Fauteux (2), Jessica Thompson (3), and Mary Van Sickle (4). Second low gross in Flight 4 was Rose Seymour. The low net winners were Susan Newberry (1), Doreen Landry (2), and Anita Hill (3).

Door prizes went to Babes Shanko, Anita Hill, Dorothy Warman, Susan Mitchell, Gayle Fauteux, Kim Van Sickle, Terri Jones, Deb Legaree and Betty Foote.

A big shout out to our Hole in One sponsors – Alpine Meadow Resort, Barriere Auto Parts and Bob Stirling. The Star/Journal and Chinook Cove Golf are also wonderful sponsors. They don’t get mentioned every week but we are grateful for their support.

So, there you have it. If you have been keeping count that makes a total of 23 ladies picking up prizes at the club house while Evelyn and I go home empty handed. Perhaps next week will be different. All we can do is hope. Christopher Reeve said “Once you choose hope, anything’s possible”. See you at the course.
