SWGA/SSWGA Jingle Bell Scramble

With the threat of COLD weather and cloudiness looming for days before the annual Jingle Bell Scramble, I did as usual: waited until the last minute to do pairings. For about 4 days, I had no cancellations or additions. Wow! This is unusual.
On the evening of December 3, the night before the Jingle Bell at Northwood Hills, I held my breath and did the pairings. We had a perfect nine groups of four for the shotgun start.
It was pretty nippy at 8:00am on Tuesday, December 4th....in the 30's, but the sun was SHINING. When the ladies started arriving at Northwood, everyone was dressed in layers, but their spirits were up in spite of the cold.
Lo and behold, there were two ladies that showed up who weren't on my list. WE HAD INCREASED from 36 to 38! Who would have thunk it! It did require some shuffling and making a new team with just 3 members, but it worked out great and it was a beautiful day.
After play, the group enjoyed a nice taco/salad/enchilada luncheon complete with tons of homemade desserts, thanks to the Northwood Ladies' Association. Great job, NWLGA!
All the ladies of the SWGA and SSWGA had brought gifts for kids and three young men from the Blanchard Fire Department picked them up for distribution to the needy. Thanks to you guys....for your service and your volunteering to distribute the toys.
Thanks to all of you ladies for making that extra effort to show up, even when you were leary.

SSWGA Playday at Bomber Bayou

The last SSWGA stroke play event of the year was held at Bomber Bayou GC on September 6th, with seventeen ladies participating.  Although there was a forecast for afternoon rain, we had a sunny and hot day all day.  It is always a pleasure to play what used to be Fox Run, and this was no exception.  We understand the modifications that are being made at the course and realize they have to go through this transition to get it really good again.  Thanks to the staff for helping get a few of the ladies onto the Base, even with their names on the list.
 
The best score of the day was a nice 89 by Hui Bordelon (BBLGA) playing in the Senior Flight.  Second best score of the day was Mon Airhart (BWGA) playing in the Super Senior Flight.  Congratulations ladies!
Jan Crowe (BWGA) had the lowest overall Net score of 71 in the Super Senior Flight, and Pat Rice gets honorable mention in that flight with a nice 72.  Linda Colvin (NHGC) had the Low Net score of 73 in the Senior Flight.  Congratulations!
Overall Low Putts was a tie between Joyce Delauder (BWGA), Cathy Buckley (BWGA) and Hui Bordelon, all in the Senior Flight, and all with just 30 putts.  As you know, the greens are going through a big transition, so this is an outstanding feat.  Low putts honors in the Super Senior Flight was 32 by Joanne McDonald (BBLGA). Good stroking, ladies!
