Rosalie Bowen, Publicity We have our winners for 2013. Everyone

had a chance to win since you had to have a minimum of fi ve league games from November 1-March 31. Thanks are in order for our First Vice President Carole Kinderman who initiated this idea. Here are the winners: President’s Cup (low net): Winner: 1st

Deanna Smith, 2nd Donna Sullivan, 3rd Verla Matuschka. Club Championship (low gross): Winner:

Susan Geis; Flight 1: Sharon Johnson; Flight 23: Carole Kinderman; Flight 3: Sara Richardson; Flight 4: Phyllis Swanson; Flight 5: Barbara Steadman. Congratulations all! Awards were

handed out at our dinner on April 9. Welcome to Linda Peart, our new

member. Bib sister Marge McClatchey does such a great job in indoctrinating our new members. It was agreed that we will now have four

fl ights instead of fi ve. This will equalize the number of players in each fl ight and also you will have a better chance of winning. Flight 1 handicap 1-16; Flight 2 handicaps 17-18; Flight 3 handicaps 19-21; and Flight 4 handicap 22. Our Rally for the Cure Tournament went

very well. Kudos to Phyllis Swanson – we had fun golfi ng and great prizes (everyone was a winner). Verla Matuschka went home with a new club (lucky lady). Did I mention that we also had some delicious snacks (it was dinner for me)! This event gets better every year. Our next event was the mixer with the

18-holers which was held on April 30. I will give results next month of this fun event.

Our fl ea market was quite successful

thanks to Barbara Steadman and her crew who by the way were up at 5:00; that’s dedication! The slate of offi cers for 2014 was

presented at our meeting on April 9: President Carole Kinderman, First Vice President Deanna Smith; Second Vice Presidents Jacki Aagaard and Susan Geis; Secretary Rosalie Bowen and Treasurer Donna Quinn. We thank you for accepting these positions. Our condolences go out to Barbara

and enjoyed the opportunity to relax on the patio reminiscing great shots and missed

opportunities. Birdies for the month: Too many to list by date so I’ve lumped each

player’s birdies together. I have always felt the greens at Cottonwood Golf Course were diffi cult. However, with all these birdies, maybe the good drives and approach shots along with excellent putting is the key. Congrats ladies. Penny Hunter No. 17, Joan Seckels No.
