Well, I was hot on Tuesday night, July 2, but I am afraid my golfing wasn’t. I have a multitude of excuses ranging from “I was too tired” to “the wind worked against me” but the truth be told I just golfed like the old lady that I am (or at least feel like some days). Now, don’t get me wrong…I am not complaining about the heat. I am just happy that it finally arrived.
A couple of ladies went home feeling almost as sad as me. Both missed scoring a deuce by mere inches and the deuce pot has oodles of money in it. Perhaps next week…that is what I seem to say about my golf game every time I go out.
Deb Legaree, Brittany Bobinski, Christina LeCerf and visiting aunt April LeCerf had much to cheer about. Deb Legaree took home four prizes (Our Little Secret, Shais Design, Bondar Forest Planning and Barriere A&W) as well as low gross for Flight 2 with a score of 49. April LeCerf picked up two prizes (The Look Boutique and Stamer Logging) as well as low gross for Flight 3 with a score of 55. Christina LeCerf walked off with three prizes (Pottery by Ramona, Station House Restaurant and Bodi Mekanix). Brittany Bobinski scooped up three prizes (Rainer Custom Cutting, Carl’s Market Garden and Avril’s Garden).
Theresa Young had a smashing round of 44 to win low gross for Flight 1, and also took home the Barb and Carman Smith prize for KP on Hole 4. Pat Carr won low net for Flight 1 which is sponsored by Lexa Catering. Angie Rainer won low net for Flight 2 which was sponsored by Ron Wallace Trucking. Molly Lampreau won multiple prizes by taking the Estylo Hair Design prize and the Barriere Massage prize. Trudy Scarlett picked up two prizes from Knight’s Inn and Carol Patton, CGA.
Single prize winners were Tanya Desjarlais (Val Bella Studio), Susan Newberry (AG Foods), Betty Foote (Barriere Irly Building), Audrey Rilcoe (Country Store Antiques) and Ashley Salle (Crystlee’s Hair Design).
I am hoping that my team mates are all back next week. Thanks Christina and April for taking pity on me this week. Captain Debbie deserted ship for a weekend away for her birthday, but I am hoping she will be back on the bridge next week.
I hope you have all marked July 23rd on your calendar. That is our Annual Christmas in July (this year we are celebrating Aussie style) fun night. The format is a four person Texas scramble with some of our own rules thrown in. Prizes are not just for golfing. We also have ones for playing the word game and for dressing in style.
Supper will be my very favourite…turkey with all the trimmings, and pumpkin pie for dessert. Be sure to book your team and carts early. Shotgun start is at 5 p.m. Cost is $30 ($20 for folks who have paid their yearly green fees) and includes golf, dinner and prizes.
