Crown Isle Ladies have fun

Several members take new positions with executive at annual general meeting




Crown Isle ladies club knows how to have fun.  A hearty welcome to three long-standing Crown Isle Ladies’ members – Phyllis Stratford, Jean Curry, and Joyce Verburgt – who attended this week’s luncheon.

The Crown Isle executive is not only dynamic, organized and gorgeous but they are also darn smart. It was decided to have the Crown Isle Milestones Luncheon after golf coupled with the Ladies’ AGM.  It was a winner!  All the ladies entered a beautifully presented silver “blingy” room and were treated to an amazing luncheon, all thanks to our very hard-working social committee, Pat Johnson and Anne Sands.

The day was full of laughs and chatter, free wine from the quarters eaten by “The Piggy’ every Tuesday and champagne compliments of Ron Coulson, owner of Crown Isle. No wonder we had 14 new members this year!

Each new member was given a new members’ packet with tons of info on Crown Isle golf.  Who wouldn’t want to golf in the Crown Isle Ladies’ Club? You too can be part of the fun and golf-join the ladies’ club next year.

The Tuesday game was a Scramble and the winners were: 1st low net – Sandy Linhart and Daneen Karch and 2nd low net Linda Stickney, Linda Foreman, Raelene Robertson and Pam Stevens.

KPS – Rosemary Smith #4, Audrey Clark #7, Jean McCrae #12 and Karen Currie #16.

Katy chaired the AGM and was full of interesting info.  What a fantastic lady captain she has been for the last two years. Judy Aldcroft, our new lady captain for 2015, presented Katy with a gorgeous Waterford glass golf ball. The Ladies’ website will be under the capable hands of Janet Phillips and Jenny Steele. Over 40 ladies were out for Ball in a Bag some Mondays and Thursdays. Janet Phillips will coordinate winter golf again.

The Dine and Deal will start every other Wednesday in November with dinner in the Timber Room and then slide gin in the ladies locker room. Contact either Marsha MacKinnon or Pat Johnson for details.  The Christmas luncheon is set for Dec. 3 so don’t forget to sign up. Give Anne Sands or Pat Johnson a call.

Crown Isle Couples’ Glow Ball is coming up in October so contact Alan Barwick if you are interested.  If you haven’t hit a ball in the dark it is a “must do!”  Wayne Fleming and Sharma Shamblin are the new co-ordinators of the five couples’ events during the 2015 season. John and Carol Rahlston are looking after the weekly Sunday couples golf.

Sheila van Gisbergen was excited about the great things happening in Zone 6 so make sure you check out the website at Dee Horie reminded us not to miss the David Court Memorial Tournament on Oct. 18.  All monies go to junior golf. Please register at the pro shop 250-703-5031 for this very worthwhile event.

Congratulations to all the Captain’s Cup and Vice-Captain’s Cup  match play winners for 2014:

Singles -1st May Mitchell and 2nd Katy Macaulay. Consolation singles – 1st-Ev Shaw and 2nd Pat Johnson. Doubles – 1st Ev Shaw and Jenny Steel and 2nd Jean Wharton and Pat Chalmers. Consolation Doubles – 1st Barb Parker and Maggie McLean and 2nd Sheila van Gisbergen and Andrea Spitz.

The finale for the day was awarding Katy Macaulay the coveted blue blazer with crest and a reserved parking sign for the past lady captain. (An Irish tradition).

Kudos to Toscano’s for giving some of the ladies gift certificates for the restaurant.
