Wow! This fall weather is absolutely fantastic. Thirty-two ladies turned out for our second last Ladies Night (Sept. 6) and were treated to a great evening of golfing, gabbing and giggling. We finished the evening with our annual meeting and election of officers. Debbie Rainer and Leslie Stirling (that’s me) tried to keep things light and lively – minutes delivered so quickly that I almost tied my tongue in a knot. The ladies rewarded us with their thanks and a return to office by acclamation.
Helen Fraser, Bonnie CruzelleMyram and Val Stamer were thanked for the super job that they did hosting the annual Golf for Breast Cancer Cure on August 30th. We had the largest turnout ever of 80 ladies and raised a total of $2550 for Breast Cancer research. Helen thanked the ladies, the golf club and the folks of Barriere for their fantastic support and donations. I thanked Vicki Hoffer for making the fantastic village of bird houses that I won in the raffle. Once they are settled in their new home you will have to drive by my front yard and admire them.
Back to the prizes – as I mentioned to Emma Allen – there is no such thing as a bad prize. Even if you win for short drive, a prize is still a prize.
Flight winners this week were Barb Kavanagh (Flight #1 low gross), Deb Legaree (Flight #1 low net), Deb Rainer (Flight #2 low gross), Sarah Watts (Flight #2 low net) and Michelle Funk (Flight #3 low gross). Barb Kavanagh won the prize from our newest sponsor Crystlee’s Hair Design for using only 13 putts and Joanne Lyle won the Station House Restaurant prize for utilizing 33 putts. She is a good sport and took a lot of ribbing from me.
I had my best night all year and won two prizes – KP in 3 on Hole #1 from Barriere Irly Centre and KP on Hole #4 from Stamer Logging. Guess I will have to stop whining about not winning anything. Emma Allen had that short drive on Hole #1 to win the Jul’re by Lynda prize. Lynda Beddington had a long putt on #2 to win the Barriere Massage prize while the Country Store Antique prize was won by Trudy Scarlett with a long drive in 2 on Hole #3. Hazel Cross had a long putt on Hole #3 to win the Rainer Custom Cutting prize and a KP on Hole #6 to win the Carl’s Market Garden prize. Sister Betty Baillie wasn’t going to be outdone by Hazel so she had a KP on #4 to win the River Adventure Co. prize and a long drive on #9 to win the Barr K Treats prize. Karen Peterson was a triple winner – long putt on #5 to claim the Star Journal prize; a KP on Hole #6 to pick up the Carman & Barb Smith prize and a long drive on #9 to earn a lunch at Barriere A&W. Deb Rainer’s long putt on Hole #5 earned her the Val-Bella Studio prize while Cathy Chornlesky picked up the Estylo Hair Design prize for her long putt on the same hole. Deb also had a KP in 2 on Hole #7 to win the AG Food prize. I think I heard her say something about using it to buy whipping cream for cake next week – I’ll be there for sure. Barb Kavanagh had a long putt on Hole #8 to win the Bodi Mekanix prize and Vicki Hoffer had a long drive on Hole #9 to win the Knights Inn gift certificate. The usual suspects picked up golf balls and tees for hitting into the gully on #7 courtesy of North Thompson Funeral Services.
Next week is our last Ladies Night of the season. We are hoping to see everyone out for one last night of fun and frivolity.
