Season almost done – join in the fun

Judging from recent temperatures the Dog Days of Summer are over. Days are getting shorter and cooler. Evenings on the patio bring out fall jackets, or in Debbie Rainer’s case her winter down jacket and perhaps even her long johns. Twenty-six die hard ladies turned out on the last day of August to play a round of golf and dine on the patio despite the cooler weather.

I had a chip-in to win that pot for Flight 3 and mentioned to the ladies that you didn’t have to golf well to go home a winner – you only had to make one good shot. Now if you are keeping tabs on me you will notice that prior to this week I was in Flight 2, but because of some dismal scores my handicap has gone up and I have changed Flights. Of course, the goal is to get better, lower your handicap and rise in the Flights – but you know me. I don’t like to do whatever everyone else wants to do. Betty Foote also had a chip-in to win the pot for Flight 4 but her game was considerably better than mine.

Low gross/low net prizes were sponsored by Salle Ranch, Stamer Logging, Campbell & Company, and Quality Contractors. Theresa Young scored 42 to win low gross in Flight 1, while Susan Newberry had a 48 (36.5) to win low net. Deb Rainer used 52 shots to win low gross in Flight 2, and Evelyn Lucas followed her with a 54 (37.5) to win low net. Flight 3 was decided by retro with Deb Winiski taking low gross with her score of 55, while Jeannie Webber took low net with her 55 (36). Betty Foote had the low gross score of 60 in Flight 4, while Brenda Carl and Sue Meger tied for second low gross with 68s.

The Rainer Custom Cutting prize went to Theresa Young, and the Sam’s Pizza prize went to Val Aylward for long drives on Hole 1. On Hole 2 long putts earned prizes for Theresa Robinson (Station House Restaurant), and Catharine Phillips (Ainsley Gullage of Sun Life). The long drives on Hole 3 were won by Jan Advent (T & T Liquidation), Susan Bondar (Thompson Valley Awards), and Val Williams (AG Foods). Val Williams had a long putt on Hole 5 to win the Barriere Motor Inn prize.

Cindy Leibel of Westwin Realty, MJB Lawyers, the Smiths (Barb and Carman), the Carls (Brian and Brenda) and EBL Ventures sponsored the KPs on Hole 4 and Hole 6. The winners were Susan Newberry, Susan Bondar, Donna Salle, Deb Rainer and Betty Foote (see – I said she had a good game). Theresa Young took home the HUB International prize for KP in 2 on Hole 7. Long putts on Hole 8 and Hole 9 won prizes for Evelyn Lucas (Barriere Timber Mart) and Doreen Landry (Barriere IDA/Munro’s). The Least putt prize went to Leanna Layton (13) and the Most putt prize went to Brenda Carl (23 by retro).

Just a reminder that the Club Championship is coming up on Saturday, Sept. 11, so if you are planning to take part you should register at the clubhouse.

“Now I have sung this song but I’ll sing it again” Chinook Cove Ladies Night is the most fun I can have while losing. The food is great and the company is wonderful. Last Tuesday we even got in a Hokey Pokey dance thanks to Babes Shanko. We only have two weeks left. If you snooze, you lose.

See you at the course.
