Golfing t Chinook Cove with a little help from your friends

Debbie Rainer was away on a holiday, but fortunately I survived with a little help from my friends. However, my golf game on July 16 did not. I had my worst outing of the season. Thank goodness the company was excellent. The weather was a bit threatening but on the whole the 38 ladies golfing managed to stay dry.

Our sponsors for low gross and net were Campbell & Co. (Flight 1), Kelly VanGenne of Expedia CruiseShipCenters (Flight 2), Salle Ranch (Flight 3) and East Barriere Lake Ventures (Flight 4). The winners in Flight 1 were low gross Catharine Phillips by retro with a score of 43 and low net Marla Hajmerle with a score of 44 (33). Susan Bondar took low gross in Flight 2 with a score of 50 while Trudy Forsythe won low net with a score of 51 (35). Evelyn Lucas scored a 49 in Flight 3 to win low gross while Betty Baillie had a 54 (33.5) to win low net. In Flight 4 Betty Foote was the low gross with a 58 and second low gross went to visitor Jillian Webber with a score of 60. All the pots were won. Leanne Layton and Anita Hill split the Birdie Pot while Betty Foote, Betty Baillie and Evelyn Lucas divvied up the Chip In pot. Marla Hajmerle walked away by herself with a Deuce Pot that had been building for a few weeks.

The Long Drives in 2 on Hole 1 and 2 were won by Betty Baillie (Sam’s Pizza), Barb Smith (Station House Restaurant), Catharine Phillips (Little Fort Subway) and Joan Streadwick (Thompson Valley Awards). The KPs in 2 on Hole 7 were won by Catharine Phillips (High 5 Diner) and Anita Hill (HUB Insurance). The Long Drive winners were Marla Hajmerle (Barriere Motor Inn), Ilke Marais (Barriere Timber Mart), Leslie Stirling (Bear Lane Bistro & Boutique) and Jillian Webber (Gift ‘n Gab). Putters were working well for many of the ladies. The Long Putts were made by Marian Wallace (AG Foods), Betty Foote (Armour Mountain Office Supplies), Carol Hindle (Mane Street Hair), Jeannie Webber (Munro’s Clothing), Marla Hajmerle (Quality Contractors) and Betty Baillie (Rainer Custom Cutting). Most of the KPs were won and the winners were Marla Hajmerle (Royal LePage/Cindy Leibel and the Smiths, Barb and Carman), Trudy Forsythe (MJB Lawyers), Ilke Marais (Brian and Brenda Carl), Jillian Webber (Stamer Logging) and Deb Winiski (Ron Wallace Trucking). Ladies driving their ball into the gully on Hole 7 picked up goodie bags from North Thompson Funeral Services. Marla Hajmerle had a putter that was working very well and she picked up the Least Putt prize from Sun Life Financial with only 12 putts. I, Leslie Stirling, on the other hand used more than twice as many (25) to win the Most Putt Prize. Of course, the moral of the story is you don’t have to have a terrific game to win a prize.

I usually like to close with something clever or funny. This week I am sharing a wonderful poem by Ogden Nash that I would like to use at a wedding but don’t feel it would be totally appropriate.

To keep your marriage brimming with love in the loving cup

Whenever you’re wrong admit it and whenever you’re right Shut Up.
