July Greetings Lady Golfers,

 

Yesterday we had our 1st Tournament of the year, Last Woman Standing. We started at 6:30 A.M. at a reasonable temperature of 83 F. Our second trip around the course started at 96 F and we ended at 105 F. Along with a bit of cloud cover at times and a small breeze, not a bad day at all.

 

Congratulations to RITA SIPE on retaining the coveted Bubba Cup trophy!

 

Two of our members travelled back to Trilogy just for the occasion, YVONNE NIDROS and JOLEEN SWENSON.

 

TOM and SUE SWEET host this tournament every year and graciously invite us to their home for a delicious taco lunch and lots of margaritas, wine, and beer. We are so grateful for their generosity and amazing hospitality. This year TINA FLEISLER treated us to her wonderful Margarita cupcakes for dessert.

 

Hats off to MELISSA SMOOKE, our new Tournament Chair for a flawless job on her 1st tournament! RITA SIPE also deserves recognition for her role as our new Rules Chair; she had to make some last-minute decisions due to the golf course aerification less than a week before our tournament.

 

MARV TJALMA was kind enough to brave the heat driving around the course with ice and drinks. He was a welcome sight.

 

Our historian HELEN RICHARDS captured the entire day in pictures that will be posted on our website soon along with full results of the tournament.

 

Thank you to all of you brave participants who helped make this year’s Last Woman Standing a success!

 

Sandy Warman, TLQWGC
