On Tuesday, Oct. 1 the Glacier Greens Ladies combined their year ending awards presentations with a Christmas in October dinner (as already the “Snowbirds” have started making motions of flapping their wings).
Thank you to Ben Gill and his staff for a delicious turkey dinner with all the trimmings. We were pleased to incorporate donations to the Salvation Army at this time.

The Fran Hume Memorial Shoot-out, held over a three-week period, is a two-person team, cumulative score competition.
Had an exceptionally nice day for the Scramble in Week #1 with Brenda Livingstone/Carmel Horochuk stealing the show with a net 52.5.
Week #2 was Best Ball. Shifting into high gear with a wide variety of rain outfits to survive the monsoon-like weather, and our drowned-look appearance post-game, we
did conjure up quite a picture. Successful in taking the lead were Wendy Dowe/Rikki Farrell on a c/b with a net 64.
Week #3 was the ultimate test with Alternate Shot. Emerging the winners were Rosslyn O’Rourke/Gene Renaud with a net 75.
The Overall Champions were the team of Rosslyn O’Rourke/Gene Renaud who had the lowest cumulative score for the three weeks with a 199 net. Second low net was a tie at 206 with the teams of Rikki Farrell/Wendy Dowe, and Rose Jacobson/Lori Cameron, and the countback went to Farrell/Dowe.
Low low gross with 269 Brenda Livingstone/Carmel Horochuk, second with 279 Ellie Nicholas/Fran Hutchison.
A team of “D”airy “Q”ueens were also in the running, but we won’t delve into that.
We are full of thanks and applause for our club captain Janet Edwards and the rest of the very hard working volunteers on the executive committee and many others making their contributions of time and talents to making a successful year.
Thank you to Bill Kelly and his top drawer staff in the pro shop, much appreciated. Cannot go without saying thank you to our groundskeepers that provide us with a well maintained golf course, no matter what the weather.
Sayonara till the spring.
