Fun day

Aug. 20 was another beautiful day for 17 Glacier Greens Tuesday Ladies to play a round of golf. Only the scores on the par 3s and 5s minus half your handicap counted for the total.

Sounds simply enough but amazing how many of us had a problem with getting good scores on the right holes. Some golfers managed to get it right, and on the gross side they were Judy Brown 43, Glenda Kinney 44c/b and Kelly Gibb 44.

On the net side Wendy Dowe 29.5, Gene Renaud 34 c/b and Jean Tonks 34. KPs went to Lorraine Courtemanche #4 and Brenda Livingstone #12.

There was a three-way tie for low putts among Glenda Kinney, Kelly Gibbs and Jean Tonks.
