The ladies are sad, but they’ll be back in the Spring

By Leslie Stirling

The Season is over.

I’m feeling quite sad.

I love all the visits though my

golfing is bad.

But I’ll be alright

cause here is the thing.

after the winter we’ll

be back in the Spring.

It has been a crazy year. At the beginning we were worried that we wouldn’t be able to golf. Then we could golf but not eat. That was the hard part because you know how much I love to eat. Finally we could gather for supper on the patio and hand out the prizes. Things are almost right in the Chinook Cove Ladies’ Night world and we have settled into the new normal.

We held our final Ladies’ Night on Tuesday, September 15. Forty-six ladies took part and all who stayed for the prize presentation went home with a door prize if nothing else. The great staff in the kitchen cooked up one of my favourite dinners, chow mien, chicken wings, etc. I will miss those Tuesday night dinners. Our after dinner entertainment was our annual meeting. Deb Rainer (Captain) and Leslie Stirling (Secretary-Treasurer) were returned to office by acclamation. 2021 will be their 18th year in office. Thanks to Barb Smith for chairing the election.

And here are the weekly results for those of you who are more interested in the golf than in the food. In Flight 1 the low gross winner with a score of 39 was Brenda Oakland. The low net prize went to Marla Hajmerle. In Flight 2 a score of 49 earned low gross for Audrey Rilcoe and Joan Streadwick won the low net. Jean Webber scored 54 to win low gross in Flight 3 and Deb Winiski won low net. Sharon Spooner scored a 58 to win low gross in Flight 4 and Val Aylward, Lynda Fournier and Jen Amos tied for second low gross. Leanna Layton used her putter 14 times to win the Least Putt prize and Sue Paulhus putted 26 times to win Most Putt prize.

I have talked a lot about the pots this year and the ladies have trusted me to “do the right thing” when doling out the money. All the pots were emptied except the Eagle and Hole-in-One which will be carried forward to next year. Cindy Leibel and Ashley Wohlgemuth shared the Deuce pot. Doreen Landry, Catharine Philips and Brenda Oakland had birdies while Kelly Vangenne, Lorie Chambers and Brenda Oakland made Chip-Ins.

I would like to send a gigantic thank you out to all our sponsors. Barriere and area is blessed with many fantastic businesses and citizens who give freely of their money, time and talents. THANK YOU!!!! Here is a list of our sponsors: Munro’s Clothing, Rainer Custom Cutting, Sam’s Pizza, Station House Restaurant, Thompson Valley Awards, Cindy Leibel (Royal LePage/Westwin Realty), MJB Lawyers, Salle Ranch, Stamer Logging, AG Foods, Armour Mountain Office Supplies, Barriere Motor Inn, Barriere Timber Mart, Barb and Carman Smith, Brian and Brenda Carl, Campbell & Company, EBL Ventures, North Thompson Funeral Services, Quality Contractors, HUB International, Bear Lane Bistro (T & T Liquidations), Gift ‘n Gab, Bob Stirling, Barriere Auto Parts, Alpine Meadows Resort, Chinook Cove Golf, North Thompson Star/Journal and one anonymous sponsor who shall remain nameless.

Since we all like to know who won those pin placement prizes here is a list of them: Susan Newberry, Trish Thompson, Doreen Landry, Barb Smith, Brenda Carl, Cindy Leibel, Kelly Vangenne, Marie Hakes, Marla Muldoon, Trudy Forsythe, Lorie Chambers, Lynda Forsythe, Deb Legaree, Jeannie Webber, Lois McInnis, Catherine Phillips and Fiona Clare. I will leave it up to you to guess who might have done what. Needless to say, the ‘who’ did the ‘what’ at just the right time.

I would like to close with a couple of my own prizes. The Leslie Stirling prize for Best Captain Ever goes to Debbie Rainer and the Leslie Stirling Super golf buddies prizes goes to Debbie, Donna Salle and Lois McInnis. That’s it for now. See you in the spring.
