August 8 was a great day!
About 24 ladies were at luncheon today. Everyone was feeling chattery (if that is a word?) and it sounded sooo good! Lots of fun.
Rula Hatch and Babe Hurowitz provided the desserts and they were great! Even the "homemade" cupcakes!
We had a guest today: Joanne Stockland was invited by Brenda Chatham. Great having you Joanne.
The $5 drawings were won by Babe Hurowitz and Me (Pat Steckelberg). I jokingly said draw my name and wow!! Edith came thru and did … boy was I surprised!
Quarters were won by: Joan Olson, Beth Silvano (3 times), Irma Burbach and Brenda Chatham.
Bridge report: Irma Burbach was high and Ellie Davis was second high.
Golf report: Three of us ladies golfed today. We played "Low Score on Par 4's". Edith Nelson had total of 30, Darlene Engbrecht had 37 and I (Pat) had 40. This was another day of terrible golfing for me. I even lost a ball AT the water fountain stop end of #2. Could not find it anywhere … bet no one else had ever done that!!
I did par #8 though. Edith and Darlene did very well.
Dominoes report: There were three tables and today we had a RECORD LOW –Brenda Chatham. She had 70 for a grand total. WOW! Good going Brenda!!
Round 1 – Babe Hurowitz, Eileen Turner, and Joan Olson.
Round 2 – Brenda Chatham, Thelma Raines, and Beth Silvano.
Round 3 – Babe Hurowitz, Eileen Turner, and Agnes Mockler.
Total Score – Brenda Chatham, Thelma Raines and Anita White. See how exciting it can be at The Bluffs!! Come join us!

Finally there was a break in the heat wave tonight, Aug. 8. There was cloud cover and a lovely breeze. The weather was agreeable to a WELL substitute, Abby Doorn who had two birdies tonight on #2 and #8 and shared Low Net honors with Jonie Hook. They both had a 30! There was discussion about Abby's days as a Coyote athlete on the USD golf team. I think they call that a ringer??
Low Gross went to Mary Gauer, once again, with a one over par 37! Good job Mary. Longest putt on #6 was Pat Flannigan and the 50/50 went to Ann Jensen of $7. Only 2 more weeks of league play left and the Women's 4 person scramble is next Saturday. It seems like the summer went fast but fun.
