Locker Room message

From our President Patty:

The locker room renovation is almost completed but we need a little more time to put everything back in place. There are piles of stuff on the floor that need to be organized and it will take at least another 2 weeks to make the area safe.  Please wait a little longer before you try to access your locker. When I will return next week, we will begin the job of replacing all our accessories. In the meantime, if you are over there and see the guys at work, give them a  big "Thank- you". They have done a great job!

Friends in New Smyrna Beach

We enjoyed some great company at Venetian Bay Golf Club and afterwards, in north east Florida with Laura and John Ebbrell - a little cool last Wednesday, but lots of sun and fun. Thanks for hosting us!

The next morning, Laura said she hadn't seen the sun THAT early in a long time - beautiful beach!

Golf in Arizona

Diane Arsenault sent this picture from the golf course in the Village of Oak Creek, just outside Sedona, Arizona. She said the weather went from a mini snow storm on a hike in the first week, to a second week of 15C temps, and then to a heat wave of 80 - 90F this week. They had the pleasure of playing with a young star from the women's golf team at Northern Arizona University who hit 250-300 yards drives and was "lethal around the greens". Her name is Sofia Anokhina and she had just won a NCAA tournament the previous weekend shooting -12 for three rounds! That may be a name to remember in the future. Keep the pictures coming!

Golf in New Zealand

Joan and Derek Hayward played this course in Christchurch, NZ, established in 1904. Interesting pricing - for 12 holes, instead of 9 as we would usually see. Joan mentioned dry conditions, similar to our drought last summer. Thanks for sending!
