Well, it finally happened on July 30. We ladies were rained on…but we weren’t rained out. We didn’t get too wet and we were quite comfortable on the patio after our round. I had an extraordinary game…extraordinarily bad…highest score of the season. For you non-golfers out there that is a bad thing, not a good thing. Every cloud has a silver lining. I did have a good putt that earned me a prize from Quality Contractors (thanks Paul) and I also won a door prize. Supper was great and the company was fantastic. All in all it was a good night.
Now I work very hard to keep this article interesting by wording the winners, the prizes and the sponsors differently every week. So I hope you take the time to scan through who won what where. We truly appreciate not only our sponsors and the fine folks at Chinook Cove Golf but also the great ladies that show up to golf each week.
Louise Lodge scored a wonderful 40 to win low gross in Flight 1 (Campbell & Co.) while Susan Mitchell earned low net with a score of 43 (31). In Flight 2 (Expedia CruiseShipCenters) Terry Blaeser picked up low gross with a score of 47 while Cori Walker won low net with a score of 49 (32). The Flight 3 (EBL Ventures) low gross winner was Carol Willox with a score of 51 and the low net winner was Catherine Jarvis with a score of 53 (33). There was a two way tie for low gross in Flight 4 and the honours went to Audrey Deveau and Carla Fennell with scores of 61. Jeannie Webber won the Deuce pot while Ilke Marais and Susan Bondar split the Chip In Pot.
Long Drives in 2 on Holes 1 and 2 were won by Deb Winiski (Little Fort Subway), Erin Duncan (Thompson Valley Awards), Glenda MacLean (AG Foods) and Susan Bondar (Armour Mountain Office Supplies). Carol Fennell had a Long Drive on Hole 5 to win the High 5 Diner certificate while Janice Advent (Sam’s Pizza) and Ilke Marais (Station House Restaurant) had Long Drives on Hole 9. On Hole 3 Long Putt prizes were picked up by Carol Willox (Barriere Motor Inn) and Anita Hill (Barriere Timber Mart). The Long Putts on Hole 5 were made by Susan Newberry (Beat Lane Bistro) and Babes Shanko (Gift ‘n Gab). Lois McInnis had a Long Putt on Hole 8 to win the Rainer Custom Cutting certificate. The Most Putt prize went to Lynda Fournier with 33 putts and Donna Salle won the Least Putt prize with 13 putts. Both prizes were supplied by Ainsley Gullage of Sun Life Financial. On Hole 7 Anita Hill came closest to the left hand sand trap without going in to walk away with the Munro’s Clothing certificate. KPs in 2 were made by Susan Mitchell (Mane Street Hair) and Doreen Landry (HUB International). My memory is not always what it should be so I can’t tell you who went into the gully on Hole 7 but I do know that the prizes were sponsored by North Thompson Funeral Services. The KP winners on Hole 4 were Marla Muldoon (Cindy Leibel of Westwin Realty), Ilke Marais (MJB Lawyers), Jeannie Webber (Salle Ranch) and Krissy Brundell (Stamer Logging). On Hole 6 the KP winners were Donna Salle (Barb and Carman Smith), Cori Walker (Brian and Brenda Carl) and Doreen Landry (Ron Wallace Trucking).
And to close a little ditty that I wrote.
We’ve come to play
on a sunny day.
The number of holes is nine.
We head out in twos
in our golfing shoes.
I think we’ll be just fine.
We putt and chip.
We let her rip.
We get what we’ve come after.
Some food, some fun
and when we’re done
we hope there’s been some laughter.
