Shotgun wedding this Tuesday at Chinook Cove


After a couple of weeks away, I was happy to be back on the course with my golfing buddies for Ladies Night, Tuesday, June 14.

Although the skies at times were dark and stormy, the temperature was comfortable; the sun occasionally poked through; the laughter flowed; and the rain didn’t.    I can’t say anything good about my golf game but I still enjoyed the afternoon and evening immensely.

Thanks to Debbie Rainer we finished the evening off with a fantastic birthday cake.  I mean really fantastic – chocolate, cherries, whipping cream – all my favourite sins.  Susan Mitchell and I were the honourees.  Susan won the light-hearted war of words when I had to admit that I was the elder.  Leslie the elder.  Almost makes me sound wise, doesn’t it?  I guess it beats being called late for dinner.

Tanya Desjarlais scored a fantastic 46 to win low gross for Flight #1 and Deb Legaree picked up the low net in that flight.  Rocky Taylor had a great score of 49 to win low gross in Flight #2 and Vicky Hoffer took the low net.  Jen Amos won low gross for Flight #3 with a score of 53.  She will be moving up a flight if she keeps scoring that well.  Donna Salle and Deb Legaree shared the deuce pot which has been building for a few weeks while Shirley Ross and Susan Mitchell shared the birdie pot.  For the first time this year all three flight prizes for KP on Hole #6 were won with prizes going to Deb Legaree (Carman & Barb Smith0, Susan Newberry (Ron Wallace Trucking) and Wanda Amos (Carl’s Market Garden).

At the beginning of the evening I stopped Bev Leinwebber to ask how to spell and pronounce her name.  By the end I had used it a number of times as she picked up the Stamer Logging prize for KP on Hole #4 and the Station House certificate for long putt on Hole #9 as well as one of the door prizes.  Other Flight #1 prize winners were Susan Mitchell (Rainer Custom Cutting) for a long drive on Hole #2; Tanya Desjarlais (AG Foods) for a long drive in 2 on Hole #5; and Karen Peterson (Barr K Treats) for a long putt on Hole #8.  Taking home some of the Flight #2 prizes were Vicky Hoffer (Country Store Antiques) for KP in 3 on Hole #1; Audrey Rilcoe (Bodi Mekanix) for a long drive in 2 on Hole #5; Deb Rainer (Knights Inn) for KP in 2 on Hole #7 and Lynda Beddington (Barriere Irly Centre) for a long putt on Hole #9.  Flight #3 prizes were shared by Joanne Lyle (NT Star/Journal) for a long putt on Hole #2; Erin Mitchell (Val-Bella Studio) for a monster drive on Hole #3; Brittany Bobinski (Estylo Hair Design) for a long putt on Hole #3; Lois Keller (River Adventure Co. and  Barriere A&W) for KP on Hole #4 and a long drive in 2 on Hole #5; and Helen Fraser (Jul’re by Lynda) for a long putt on Hole #9.

The dubious honours of North Thompson Funeral Services’ Rest in Peace prizes on Hole #7 went to Brittany Bobinski, Brenda Carl and Joanne Lyle with Brenda also winning the Barriere Massage prize for most putts.

Next week is our June fun night.  The theme for the evening is the Royal Wedding.  Ladies are invited to dress up for the event and some of us are busy making our own Fascinators.  And just in case you think I made up the term, check it out on Wikipedia.

Shot gun start is at 5:30 so ladies are encouraged to arrive well in advance of that time.  Please phone the club house to book a spot, reserve a cart (if you want one) and let them know which of the supper picks you want to order.  It should be a fun evening.
