There was an extreme heat advisory for June 20 that the Lady Putters must have foreseen when they scheduled the date to putt by the light of the not-so-silvery moon. Perhaps because of the dense atmosphere, the moon had a red eerie glow as 60 members and guests headed to the very dimly lit putting green. The red and green light rods marked the starting point for each shot as well as the direction of the hole. Each hole had a yellow glow ring around its circumference.
The first place team, with a composite score of 163, included Cathy Thiele, Judy Kerlin, Sherri Carpenter and Ginny Hutchison. Each won $10 and a bottle of wine. Barb Haley, Carolyn McBride, Kim Schoen and Sharon Schoen were on the second place team. Each received a bottle of wine and cocktail napkins.
Carolyn McBride had the lowest score with a 35.
Probably the biggest surprise of the evening came when 28 Putters scored at least one hole-in-one. Judy Kerlin got four. Whether it was one or four holes-in-one, the prize was still $5.
Since the Putters believe in helping others while having fun, they held a 50/50 Raffle. Cathy Thiele, Roger Paul (who tallied the score cards) and Roxanne May each won $50. The biggest winner in the raffle will be the Green Valley/Sahuarita Community Food Bank that will receive $1275 worth of buying power from their half of the pot.
Another 30 ladies won door prizes. Putters President Cathy Thiele thanked all who participated and expressed deep appreciation to those who volunteered to make the 2016 Moonlight Madness event such a success.
