enjoy cloudy day
Wednesday, June 9 was a surprise as it wasn�t cold, windy or drizzly, but still no sunshine. Just a cloudy day for 16 golfers.
Lynne Hatle and Helen Brown were in charge and the prize was total low score on the par 4s.
Helen Brown was first, Edith Nelson, second, Jan Uhl and Karon Benson tied for third and there were three tied for fourth � JoAnn Berringer, Lynne Hatle and Glennis Stewart. Fritz Lefler had a birdie on #5 � congratulations, Fritz.
The Cherry Street Grille again served a yummy taco salad. Robin Eisenmenger and Meryl Reed served ice cream bars to the 36 ladies.
Pat Steckelberg was our chairman. The two $5 drawings both went to Jan Chapman.
Lynne Hatle had a birthday last week and Mary Lee Hennies enjoyed a two week trip to Armenia for Habitat for Humanity.
Glennis was a bridge chairman and she was also high scorer. Sign-up winner � Doris Mitchell, small slam � Lorraine Brunick, and travel prize take last trip with the 9 of trump � Doris Mitchell. There were three tables of bridge.
Dominos, three tables of 16 players, high � Karon Benson 487, Fritz Lefler 491, (highest) Char Brunick 367; lows � Jayne Merrigan 212, Anita White 242, Babe Hurowitz 205, low for both tables Jayne Merrigan went out four times, Lynnette Spencer caught with double blank two times. Darlene Engbrecht went out five times. Thanks, Pat Pratt.
Come out, you�re very welcome to a sometimes extra chatty, happy group but that keeps all our spirits up.
on back 9
First National Bank, our host team for Wednesday Evening Ladies League, provided an evening of fun and frolic on the back 9 this week. They awarded the three allotted pin prizes on holes 11, 15 and 18.
Sue French snagged two of the prizes, one for coming closest to the sand on #11 without actually going in, and one on #18 for the closest chip shot. The third pin prize went to Mary Kay Zimmerman for the longest putt on #15. Mary Kay had a tough time claiming her prize as two pranksters (who shall remain nameless, although the initials of both are D.L. and whose names both appear somewhere in this report) altered her initials on the flag prize card to TLC. The jokers eventually confessed and Mary Kay received her prize. This week the Quackson supported two winners, Darlis LaBahn and Peggy Donnelly.
Out on the course the golfing was once again good. Karrie Plate (again) carded the low gross score with a 38. Wendy Johnson also shot a great round with a 40. Continuing her hot streak, Joanne Ustad shot the low net with a 32 (44-12), followed closely by Sue French with a 33 (55-22).
Last week, playing the �other� nine, Nace Huska had a birdie on #12. This week, playing on the �competitive� side, Nace once again birdied #12. Deb Larson also had a birdie on #18. But, the golfer with the hot hand was Joanne Ustad. This is the third week in a row that Joanne has had a birdie. However, this week, to vary things a bit, she had two birdies, one on #12 and one on #15. Joanne had an assist on the birdie on 15 � her third shot to the green hit the top of the retaining walls (those stinking boards) behind the right front sand trap, shot into the air and landed close to hole to allow Joanne to make an easy birdie putt.
