Dawn and Mike provided a fabulous dinner and kept the course in tip-top shape. Ron Hadley and Gord Elliot worked hard on the course during the season. The CSS Garage Band was a great hit at the windup dinner.

Big turnout for last Ladies Night

Our last official Ladies Night was on Sept. 14 and we had our largest turnout, with 21 ladies out for a game.

The special game was “Casino,” in which the teams earned points for various activities (hitting trees, going to the beach, one putt, etc). With the total team points each team picked the number of cards earned and built the best poker hand. The winner of the Casino game was the team of teachers with Deanna, Marie and Alanna who had two royal flushes in Spades and Hearts.
