(Ladies Golf Standing Head)

Ladies have a smokin’ good time

Turkey dinner with all the fixings. What can I say? Wonderful, marvelous, delicious. Finished off with a delectable pumpkin dessert that was as good as my pumpkin pie. The ladies in the kitchen at Chinook Cove out did themselves and made my day. Thanks to you all.

Other thank yous go to Bernice Randrup, Lois McInnis and Donna Janning for handling the decorating. Donna and Lois also organized the game. Betty Foote looked after floral centrepieces, and as always they looked fantastic. Betty Foote, Marian Wallace and Val Williams handled sales. Debbie Rainer tried her best to keep me in line. Sometimes she is successful and sometimes she isn’t. She is always fun.

Forty ladies headed out on Tuesday, July 13, in the smoke and heat for a shot gun start to our annual July Fun Night. It was interesting to note that we ladies are obviously becoming accustomed to the higher temperatures. There was a lovely small breeze and we found the round and supper on the patio quite comfortable.

The theme for the day was Hawaiian and included decorated carts and a fun game. The game winners were Susan Newberry, Deb Winiski, Barb Smith and Darlene Nickull. The carts of Susan Bondar, Leslee Lucy, Eileen Whitehead and Marie Gray were decorated with Canada’s version of the palm tree and yellow hibiscus flowers. Okay, I am not really sure they were hibiscus but that is the big flower in Hawaii so that’s what I am calling them. Bernice Randrup, Tammy Brown, Val Aylward, Theresa Robinson and their carts were decked out as hula dancers (I think).

The team with the lowest score was Louise Lodge, Kelly McNabney, Catharine Phillips and Melody Shepherd finishing with a three under par 33. Coming in second with a score of 38 was Doreen Landry, Cathy Paul and Leanna Layton. The team finishing with the highest score (47) was Evelyn Lucas, Brenda Carl and Wanda Amos. The prizes were the same for both high and low which just goes to prove if you can’t be the best you might as well be the bottom. Those of us in the middle got nothing for our troubles.

Pin prizes were won by Diana Fraser (AG Foods and T & T Liquidation), Susan Bondar (Armour Mountain Office and Sam’s Pizza), Betty Foote (Barriere Motor Inn), Marian Wallace (Barriere Timber Mart), Kelly McNabney (Westwin Realty, the Smiths and Sun Life Financial), Evelyn Lucas (MJB Lawyer), Val Williams (Salle Ranch), Bernice Randrup (Stamer Logging), Tammy Brown (Barriere IDA), Susan Newberry (Rainer Custom Cutting), Leslee Lucy (EBL Ventures), Donna Salle (anonymous), Leslie Stirling (Station House Restaurant) and Lois McInnis (Thompson Valley Awards). Lois was so excited when she made her putt that she left her ball in the cup when moving on to the next hole. The Long Drive in 2 were split. Cathy Paul and Leanna Layton won the HUB International prize and Doreen Landry and Leanna Layton won the Quality Contractors prize. I’m not saying my golf game has gone to hell in a handbasket but I seem to be collecting a lot more ball prizes for going in the gully. Seven other ladies joined me this week. Thanks to North Thompson Funeral Services for the prizes.

For those of you interested in our next Fun Night it will be Aug. 17. We can take a maximum of 48 ladies. Ladies should arrive by 4:30 p.m. at the latest and the shotgun start will be at 4:45 p.m. Prices will be $50 for non-members, and $40 for members. I would suggest you sign up sooner than later. The course has limited carts, so please make sure when you sign up you let the course know how many carts you need. The August Fun Night is also a fundraiser for our local unit of the Cancer Society. We have all been touched in some way by this dreadful disease so I encourage you to support our lady golfers and make a pledge. In the meantime, see you at the course.
