Did anyone miss me or should I say the news article? I took a few months off to travel, and to welcome one of our future lady golfers into the world. Welcome Holly Tamera, my newest grandchild!

While I was taking a few months off, we had monsoon flooding, course changes and lots of golf still going on. I want to send a very special thank you to Dave Jones for managing “some ladies golfing” during the summer. He sets up our tee times, posts results and logs our scores into the GHIN system. From all the summer lady golfers: thank you, Dave!

The golf course is looking great! I am excited for all of you to see it and wittiness the amazing changes yourselves. Thank you to Marc and his team for all your hard work and dedication.

Now on to ladies golf. We will be having our first official golf game and lunch meeting on November 1. Please be sure to sign up in advance, sheets should be posted by the third week of October. Don’t’ forget the first play of every month we collect money in advance the morning you sign in. Please be prepared to pay $3 for the day’s game, $1 for the hole in one, $1 for on the green, and about $9-$10 for lunch that day. It never hurts to bring a little extra in case we have a 50/50 drawing.

Shirley Hunt and Debbie Verhaeghe will be in charge of the weekly games play so if you have any questions or need to change your status of play please be sure to give them a call.

Then on November 15 we are scheduled to host the lady 9ers! Be prepared for another fun luncheon and extra fun play that day.

I also want to give a huge welcome to Barb Dunbar as our new Historian and, of course, thank Carolyn Tomlinson for all her amazing years of service in this position. Barb will be taking over the position for one year and then will need to move on to other obligations, so please keep this positon in mind if you like to be social, take photos and just have fun!

Mark your calendars:

Next month I will confirm all of our Christmas activity dates (yes I said Christmas) so we can mark our calendars in advance. Tentatively we have our Christmas Social scheduled for December 3, our lunch scheduled for December 6, and our first ladies net shoot out on December 9.

Looking forward to seeing you all in November!
