Mommy! It’s Over! That is how the comedy show, Just For Laughs ends. Victor, the trademark cries out “Mommy! It’s over!” And that is just how I feel now that the Ladies Golf Night season is finished. We had a wonderful final night on Tuesday, Sept. 8. The weather was (in a word) lousy but the 34 ladies that showed up didn’t let it get them down. The ladies golfed in their pajamas as we were putting ladies night “to bed for the winter”. Special thanks to Babes Shanko for providing us all with a bag of popcorn, Cindy Leibel for providing a little goodie bag for each lady and Leslie Stirling, Brenda Oakland and Trudy Forsythe for bringing dessert. We golfed. We ate. We had a meeting. We held elections. We picked up prizes. Everybody picked up prizes…that’s right, Everybody! We laughed and laughed and laughed.
Now I know many of you have been wondering where I have been the last couple of weeks. Life has been busy. I thought it would be quieter when I retired from the fall fair but somehow it just didn’t turn out that way. No rest for the wicked, I guess. I think the ladies who won prizes were a bit disappointed not to see their name in lights (oops in print). Here they are now.
Winners for Sept. 1 were: Carol Hindle, Trudy Forsythe, Jeannie Webber, Sara Watts, Marie Hakes, Joan Streadwick, Cathy Theriault, Darlene Nickull, Brenda Oakland, Brenda Carl, Val Aylward, Cindy Leibel, Audrey Rilcoe, Chris LeCerf, Doreen Landry, Karen Peterson, Susan Newberry, Wanda Amos, Debbie Pearce, Jeanne Seaman and Barb Smith.
Winners for Sept. 8 were: Christina LeCerf, Brenda Oakland, Leslie Stirling, Val Williams, Kathy Matthews, Brenda Carl, Barb Smith, Carol Hindle, Cindy Leibel, Carol Willox, Marnie Pfeifer, Lara Plummer, Betty Baillie, Darlene Nickull, Audrey Rilcoe, and Lynda Fournier. The big winners for the Ringer Board were Carol Hindle with the lowest final score and Lynda Fournier with the greatest reduction in score.
The club championship was held on Saturday, Sept. 12. Thirteen ladies took part. Low gross with a phenomenal score of 83 was Carol Hindle and Low net with a score of 96 which isn’t too shabby was Deb Legaree. Pin placement prizes went to Susan Newberry, Audrey Rilcoe, Evelyn Lucas, Deb Legaree, Carol Hindle, Carol Willox and Susan Mitchell. Carol Willox took home the deuce pot. Thanks to Captain Deb Rainer for looking after the event.
