Ladies Golf wraps up

Chinook Cove Ladies Golf holds final night of the season

By Leslie Stirling

Mommy!  It’s over!

The last ladies’ night of the season was clear but cool.  The north wind reminded us that winter will soon be on its way.  But the weather didn’t stop 47 ladies from having a fantastic fun time.  The laughter and conversation in the club house following the round was deafening.

Throughout the summer we celebrated a number of birthdays but those whose birthdays fall from the middle of September until early April miss out.  So this year we ended with a birthday party including cake for all.  And no one went home empty handed.  There were prizes for all.

Carol Hindle finished her season with a 43 to win low gross for Flight 1.  Trudy Forsythe had a great round to win low net.  Thanks to Thompson Valley Awards for sponsoring Flight 1.  Flight 2 was won by Joan Streadwick with a score of 53 and Jeannie Webber scored a 54 to pick up low net.  Low gross for Flight 3 was won by Heidi Cline.  Hazel Cross scored her first deuce ever to win deuce pot and Marnie Pfeifer scored a bird to pickup that pot.  Trudy Forsyte used 14 putts to win the low putt prize from Interior Savings Credit Union and Sue Paulhus picked up the most putt prize.  Koodoos to Sue for being such a good sport when I tease her.

And for the final time this year here are the prize winners:  Vreny Kempter (Barriere Massage), Helen Fraser (Crystlee’s Hair Design), Sandy LeBourdais (Country Store Antiques), Irene Beeton (Estylo Hair Design), Ilke Marais (Pottery by Ramona, AG Foods, Armour Mountain Office Services), Trudy Forsythe (Campbell & Company), Sunny LeBourdais (Bondar Forest Planning), Hazel Cross (Carl’s Market Garden, Still Waters Registered Massage Therapy), Shirley Ross (Knights Inn), Deb Winiski (Rainer Custom Cutting), Susan Newberry (EBL Ventures), Babes Shanko (Stamer Logging, Barriere A&W), Joanne Lyle (Barriere Timber Mart), Christine LeCerf (Val Bella Studio), and Leslie Stirling (Station House Restaurant).

Three lucky ladies took home the prizes that were set aside during the season in case someone scored a Hole-in-one.  Thanks to Barriere Auto Parts, Alpine Meadow Resort and Bob Stirling for donating those prizes.

We finished off the evening with a quick annual meeting and some exciting plans were made for next year.  Captain Deb Rainer and Sec-Treasurer Leslie Stirling were returned to office by acclamation.

So I am sad to say if you haven’t joined us you have missed the opportunity.  But fear not…we will be back next spring.  Perhaps we will see you then.   In the meantime Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
