Twenty-five ladies came out for dinner and prize presentations on Tuesday night Aug. 2; but only 20 golfed.
The other five (Debbie, Donna and I included) wimped out and chose to stay dry in the club house. We still had a great evening of laughter. We just didn’t get wet.
We had a surprise visitor at supper time. After receiving a note from the local marriage commissioner, Gary Forsythe showed up to discuss it with her. He sure showed us all what a great sport he is.
Flight sponsors were Interior Savings Credit Union, Armour Mountain Office Supplies, Carl’s Market Garden and Stamer Logging.
Flight 1 winners were Karen Peterson (low gross of 45) and Christina LeCerf (low net).
Flight 2 winners were Deb Legaree (low gross by retro with a score of 49) and Louise Lodge (low net).
Flight 3 winners were Doreen Landry (low gross) and Anita Hill (low net). In Flight 4 Rose Seymour and Sam LeCerf tied for low gross with a score of 62.
Most of the pin placements were won and a few ladies took home more than one.
It was definitely Betty Baillie’s night. She took home prizes from Val Bella Studio (long drive in 2), EBL Ventures (KP), and Rainer Custom Cutting (long putt) proving she can do it all wet.
Susan Mitchell won prizes from Wallace Trucking (KP), Knights Inn (KP in 2) and Gift ‘n Gab (low putts).
Two prizes went to Chris LeCerf for a long drive in 2 (Barriere Massage) and a long putt (Barriere Timber Mart). Louise Lodge also had a long drive in 2 (Barriere A&W) and a long putt (Country Store Antiques).
Rose Seymour also picked up two prizes – Hub International (KP) and Sam’s Pizza (long putt). Single prize winners were Brenda Carl (AG Foods – long drive in 2), Darlene Nickull (Crystlee’s Hair Design – long putt), Audrey Rilcoe (Campbell & Co – KP), Lynda Fournier (Estylo Hair Design – long putt), Barb Smith (Pottery by Ramona – closest to the tree), Susan Newberry (Station House Restaurant – long drive), and Deb Legaree (The Blue Jar Coffee Bar & Bistro – long drive).
I learned some great news on Tuesday night. We have our annual Golf for Cancer Research coming up on Aug. 23, and much to my delight supper is going to be turkey. That is right! A full turkey dinner. How can I be so lucky twice this summer?
Speaking of Cancer Research we are going to be collecting pledges for the Canadian Cancer Society. I have already handed out pledge sheets to many of the ladies. If you haven’t got your sheet yet please give me a shout and I will see that you get one. We are hoping to raise loads of money. If you would like to make a donation please look for one of our lady golfers.
The evening will be a shot gun start, and I encourage you to book your foursome right away.
