EAGLE POINTE LADIES GOLF LEAGUE
Our Eagle Pointe Ladies Golf League ended a wonderful season of play, fun and friendship on Wednesday, September 24th. Since darkness began descending early…by late September…six teams played a “Design Your Own Team” event for just 6 holes, with no honor or cash at stake! Team play was followed by a pizza party and program in Upper Talons at the Eagle Pointe Clubhouse.
Pegg McCrary reported the “Top Prize Winners” of the season: Jennifer Humes, Laura Charles, Fran Bond, Darlena Lindsay and herself. “Skins” winners were Chris Savoldi, Rita Ramey, Jennifer Humes and Darlena Lindsay. There were no “Hole-in-One” winners—so the quest continues. In some interesting statistics, 49 of 59 Ladies League members played at least one evening, and 45 of the 49 won prize money, totaling $965.14; there were also 13 “chip-ins” paying out $54.00 (in quarters). The ladies played on 14 evenings; used 159 golf carts; were rained out twice, and “rained on” once! They also enjoyed three “Pitch-Ins,” hosted by Front Nine, Greenridge, Fairway Knoll and Harbor Pointe.
All of these “stats” were printed for each member, and the program was inserted in a green canvas “valuables bag”, imprinted with “Eagle Pointe Ladies League,” for each lady’s golf bag. Additional bags are available for purchase for $5.00.
Since there is an abundance of money in the “Hole-in-One” fund, the league voted to give $300.00 to the Smithville Pantry to host a Christmas party for the children. The ladies have individually contributed food items throughout the season, bringing canned goods to each Wednesday night play. A special thanks to Darlena Lindsay, who organized and carried the items to the pantry each week.
The last organized event until 2015 will be the annual Christmas Party, hosted this year at the home of Barb Brunner, 2814 Pointe Cove Rd., on Wednesday, December 10. The evening will begin at 6 p.m. with appetizers and a gift exchange. Each member is asked to bring an appetizer or a dessert and her own soup mug, as special “soups” for the “supper” will be the main entrée. The gift exchange item will be a set of placemats and a set of cocktail napkins, and ladies are also asked to bring an item for the Smithville Pantry.
On behalf of the Ladies League Leadership Team, Pegg thanked members for the honor of serving the league, along with Melva Cooper and Jan Miller, over the past two years. She then announced the new leadership slate, Jeanette Gaines, Billie Moore, and Jan Schippnick, and the team was elected by acclimation. Pegg, Melva and Jan were thanked and given a “standing ovation” for their contributions to the league.
The new Leadership Team plans to continue the “Winter Diversions” (monthly dinner at the club)—so be watching for news via email to all members. As always, all area women are welcome to join this wonderful group—as a golfer or as a “social” member. Contact any member of the new (or old) leadership team for further information.
Your 2014 Leadership Team,
Pegg, Melva and Jan
