It was a beautiful night with a huge full moon as the Putters set out to putt in the dark. As it turned out, when they finally got out to putt the sky was still clear but darker. The half hour delay was caused by an apparent failure to communicate. The sprinklers came on drenching a few ladies who had to retreat to the patio area until watering time was over. Some tried to dry their clothes by standing in front of the fireplace.

Despite the “shower” the 96 members and guests did quite well in the light of the silvery moon. The first-place team with Nancy McDaniel, Julie Daines, Cathy Thiele, Lou Moultrie and Joyce Walton scored 231. Each lady won $15. On the second-place team with a score of 234 were Judy McKinley, Valerie Cotanche, Susan Grass, Virginia Hutcheson and Sylvia Perry. These ladies went home $10 richer. There was a tie for third place, with two teams scoring 241. Kaye Siblik, Jean Campbell, Dorie Franklin, Shirley Macuga and Jeanette Jarmin on Team 10 and Team 17 members Sharon Schoen, Kimberle Spitzer, Frances Martin, Diane Boisen, Linda Scott and Dani Palmer won $5 each.

Shari Cerrone and Dee Stearman tied with a low score of 35 and won $10 each. Dee Stearman had the most holes-in-one with five and won $10 for this achievement. There were 76 ladies who received $5 each for getting at least one hole-in-one. Some commented that they do as well in the dark as they do in broad daylight!

Over 20 door prizes were also awarded. But the biggest winner of the night was the Sahuarita Food Bank that will get a $211 donation from the Lady Putters as the beneficiary of the Split the Pot raffle. A heartfelt thanks to all who participated and supported the raffle.
