EAGLE POINTE LADIES GOLF LEAGUE

Good morning ladies!

 I love brave tenacious women who refuse to be chased off by a little threat of storm…..tornado…..wind…. and rain!  22 signed up…..14 defied the threat of weather elements and came to play the Las Vegas Dice Roll.  After some quick shuffling we ended up with 2 teams of 4 and 2 teams of 3.  By 7:30pm  it was dark enough to hardly see the balls…but the ladies persisted and finished the 9 holes.  Two teams tied for 2nd place with a score of 41 – Judy Beerman, Debbie Tcco, Melva Cooper, and Pegg McCrary on one team and Liz Brennan, Linda Cox, and Virginia Hendrson on the other team.  As usual, a play off of the 6th hole determined the 2nd place winners to be Liz, Linda, and Virginia by 1 stroke!  Each lady won $6 each.  The winning team of the evening was Jennifer Humes, Sandy Moore, and Darlena Lindsay with a score of 40.  Congratulations to the winners.  Each lady won $8.  Darlena Lindsay had a chip-in…winning the on-going pot from several weeks equaling $17.00.  Good job Darlena!

 Although balmy and breeze, it was a delightful evening!  Because of the looming storm, the sky darkend quicker than usual and for most… the last  hole seemed to be played in the near darkness.  A first in many of nights!   Thanks to all who came out to play….truly fearless and wonderful women!

Although looming darkness was about to over take us, Judy Beerman, Debbie Tocco, and Melva Cooper took time to greet and admire our “new graveyard General” on the 8th hole.  It’s  nice to see our friend the soldier standing erect and strong once again!   He is a great addition to Hole #8!  For anyone interested……the graveyard is known as the David Chambers Cemetery, Clear Creek Township, Monroe Count, Indiana.  Not much is known about the residents of the this small cemetery other than there are five (5) burials according to the listing included in the Monroe County Cemeteries Index (1998).  *William Chambers – no dates  * Eliza Chambers – born 08/18/1818 – died 1900 – wife of William  *Mary E Chambers – no dates, daughter of William and Eliza  *David Chambers – born 10/22/1792, died 09/05/1861 – age 68, listed in War of 1812  *Sarah Chambers – died 08/05/1877 – age 80 – wife of David.  Apparently, Susan Slaven, was instrumental in contacting R.N. Thompson about the soldier being knocked down in a storm….and he decided to have Chris Trotter (woodcarver) make a new statue.  Thank you Mr. Thompson!

 September 19th will be the last day to post SKINS for the A/B and C/D teams.  That will give the leadership team time to calculate the winners.

Next week, September 17th…there will be an outing on the golf course during the day!  HOWEVER, they should be finished in time for our league to play the usual 9 holes…..it will be a regular scamble.  The following week will be select your own team.  Some have expressed they will probably not come to the end of year party because they may not have a team to play on.   PLEASE, sign up at the clubhouse if you want to  play and we will make sure you will be on a team.  Everyone, please come to the end of year party…whether you play or not!

 Have a great week!
