Today is our monthly luncheon at HOA1. The doors open at 11:30. Don’t any of you be scootin’ in early and grabbing all the best candy.

Next week is the Putter Sputter event. Ladies from HOA1 will be joining us for a fun morning of putting. Registration for the Verde Sputters will start at 9. We should plan to be here before then. Putting will begin at 9:30. And remember to wear your pink Putter shirt and black bottoms.

For those of you not signed up for the Putter Sputter event, there will be NO regular putting next Monday.

Good morning, Ladies. Welcome to another beautiful day of putting.

Please welcome our newest member Joan Davis.

Do we have any guests today? ….. Welcome. Please write a “G” before or after your name on the scorecard.

Does anyone know of someone who is under par and in need of our well wishes?

Coming up on March 12 is our regular monthly Putters luncheon at HOA#1. The menu will be turkey and brie wrap with cranberry chutney and shredded lettuce in a tortilla with chips (courtesy of Pat Wells) on the side. Dessert is key lime pie. The cost is $18. The deadline is today at 2pm.

Next Monday is the putting day before St Patricks’s day. This would be the time to wear a wee bit o’ green to show you are Irish – at least for the day.

The deadline for Putter Sputters is also today. The cost for that is $20. You need a separate check to pay for that.   Registration starts at 9 with putting at 9:30. Luncheon will be a par 3 salad (chicken, tuna, and egg) served on a bed of mixed green with a choice of dressings on the side. There will be a dinner roll and butter. Lemon bars for dessert. A cash bar will feature a special drink “Fountain of Youth” which is vodka, cranberry juice, splash of orange juice, and club soda. Doors open at 11. Lunch served at 11:30. If more than 54 putters sign up there will be a lottery. If you put your check in the black box and you don’t hear from the committee, you made the cut.

For those of you not signing up for the Putter Sputter event, there will be NO regular putting on the 19th.

Our Quail Creek event is coming up on April 16. Mark your calendars. We’ll start talking about that next week.

The reminder for the day: Who has used the MountainView Lady Putters website in the last month? Good for you. There is lots of good information there. Such as the menu for Monday’s lunch and the Putter Sputter event. And if you really want to plan ahead, the menu for the Quail Creek event is already there too. The address is mvlputters.com. You need the password to access the membership directory. Ask me or another putter if you don’t remember it.

Raye Cobb has just turned in 250 Box Tops for Education to the San Manual School District. That means $25 for the district. You find the coupons on the packaging of all sorts of products – food, office supplies. It doesn’t take much effort on your part to cut them out and put them in this box. And it means a lot to the kids.

The reminder for the day: Ladies, this is important. After putting is over, if you want to be helpful, pick up ONLY THE PINK MARKER AT THE HOLE ON WHICH YOU FINISH. DO NOT pick up any other markers and DO NOT pick up the cones. It is dangerous for the ladies who have not yet finished, if the cones are removed too soon.

Good morning, Ladies. Welcome to another beautiful day of putting. Today is President’s Day. A holiday to honor our nation’s presidents.

Who wasn’t here last week? Have you heard that we now have 18 cut holes? It was wonderful. Now no more complaining about poor scores because of those darn bumpers.

We have some new members who have joined us. I have introduced them before. They are Pat Brothers, Marilee Jones, Bea Dillehunt, Jeanette Liske, Norma McCaleb, Jan Baker, Kat Danner, Karen Bird, Sandy Schoenleber, Annette Moyle, Phyllis Meirhenry, Sharon Marchione and Valerie Zink. Okay, you veteran putters.  If you are standing next to one of our newbies, introduce yourself to one of them. Someone you don’t know.

Do we have any guests today? ….. Welcome. Please write a “G” before or after your name on the scorecard.

Does anyone know of someone who is under par and in need of our well wishes?

Last Monday was our Founder’s Lunch.  The committee of Ginnie Shoepf, Betty Magee, Fira Stout, and JoAnn Evans did a lovely job. Donna Vargas made the beautiful sculptures as a door prize for the past presidents. Sue Bodine made the lovely valentine baskets for each of them. Thank you, Ladies. Patty Elliot, past president from 2009 sent us this note…

Last week we learned that winner’s cards will be HOA#2 gift cards for the foreseeable future. Deb has some from January to distribute, also some committee cards…

Coming up on March 19 is our Putter Sputter event. Mary Ann would you like to tell us about it? …

Our Quail Creek event is coming up on April 16. Mark your calendars. We’ll start talking about that in March.

The reminder for the day: Because we now have 18 cut holes – hurray for that – at the end of your putting, if you want to help the take down committee, pick up the pink marker at your last hole, only that one. The take down committee thanks you for your help. They will get the cones and the pink flags.

Does anyone know of someone who is under par and in need of our well wishes?

Last week we announced that going forward our winnings for money hole and 4 or more holes-in-one would be put on our homeowners cards. Because of the confusion about that, I talked to Matt Hudson, our new pro. And, because there is a software issue about putting winnings on the cards, for the for seeable future, we will continue to buy HOA2 gift cards for our winners. I think that is really good news.

Coming up on March 19 is our Putter Sputter event. Mary Ann would you like to tell us about it?

The reminder for the day: We’ve talked about this a lot. And each time we do it is a little bit differently. That is picking up after putting. For now, what we ask is that you pick up only the putter supplies that you find at the hole on which you finish. – pink starting marker, paper number and black clip on the pin, or if it is a bumper hole – pink starting marker, paper number and clip, and bumper. This is only for your hole. Nothing else. Leave the cones in place. The take down committee will gather those. Thank you, the take down committee appreciates your help.

The Black Box is now located in the temporary pro shop. Turn left as you enter from the street. It is on the desk with the boxes of the other golf groups. You have until 2 this afternoon to get your check in for the Founders’ Day luncheon which will be at HOA#1. The price is $18. That is the cost of lunches for 2018. The menu will be Frenched Chicken Breast with Lemon Artichoke Basil Sauce, white and wild rice, fresh green beans, and decorated sheet cake for dessert. We will honor our past presidents.   This is the 20th anniversary of Putters and we will have 2 charter members in attendance. In addition to the monthly awards for December we will present the annual trophies. It will be a very nice celebration.

Beginning with the February awards, your winnings for the money-hole and 4 or more holes-in-one will be entered on your homeowners card. You can use your winnings at the pro shop, the restaurants, or theater tickets. Putters from HOA#1 will need to get a HOA#2 card in order to receive your winnings. If you don’t have one already, you can wait until you actually have some winnings to get one. They cost $5.

Coming up on March 19 is our Putter Sputter event.  Mary Ann would you like to tell us about it?

The reminder for the day: We are putting at MountainView Country Club. The golf course has a dress code. It specifies there will be no denim jeans of any color, no tights, no leggings, and no gym clothes. This is not set by Putters but by the golf club.   The golfers tend to take this very seriously.

Vicki and I would like to say a “thank you” to you this morning as this is the last Monday morning of our tenure as President.

Do we have any new Putters or Guests who were invited at the Activities Fair on Saturday to join us this morning?   Recognize & Welcome!

Just a reminder that when filling out your scoresheet for a Guest, remember to mark the letter “G” either before or after the name of your Guest and YES we do need the name of the Guest on the card. Of course, a $1 greens fee should be given to the chip starters.

Sunshine Committee:  Does anyone know of any Putter who is under par and in need of our well-wishes? A donation of $50 was sent last week by our Club to the American Cancer Society here in Tucson for research in memory of Linda Pomeroy.

The Black Box is now located in the temporary Pro Shop and your access to the box will be limited to Pro Shop hours.

Our Registration & General Meeting was a huge success. Along with registering 10 new members, many of our members went home with gift cards and prizes won during the meeting. If you were unable to attend and did not have the opportunity to sign up for a job in 2018, you can speak with Sandy Strack this morning in Jan Arruda’s absence about a job placement. The Activities Fair this past Saturday was also a grand success. We had many people stop by our table with interest in Putters and many promised to look into our Club and stop by for a try out!

Our Quail Creek Event will take place on April 16th, and the Committee will be meeting here on the patio this morning immediately after putting. The Committee needs 2 more volunteers, so if you would like to join this committee, please stay after putting and see Donna Vargas.

This is the last month for issuing gift cards for the Money Hole and multiple Holes-in-One and the cards will be given out at the next Luncheon. Starting in February your winnings for both of these will be placed on your HOA#2 card and can be redeemed at HOA#2 restaurants, at the Desert View Theatre or at the Pro Shop. The winnings for the month will be credited to your cards at the beginning of the following month.  Joanne, do we have any cards to distribute this morning?

Our next Luncheon on February 12th is a celebration of our Founders and also a celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the MV Lady Putters. We will once again be back at HOA#1 for lunch. Please remember that our new cost for lunch is $18 and it starts with this lunch. So……. your $18 check is due no later than February 5th, next Monday, by 2 PM in the Black Box in the Pro Shop. The menu for this special luncheon will be: Frenched Chicken Breast with Lemon Artichoke Basil Sauce, White & Wild Rice, Fresh Green Beans, Rolls & Butter and, of course, Anniversary Cake! The usual station of Coffee, Iced Tea & Lemonade will be available as will a No Host Bar.

The Monthly Trophy Winner of the Hole-in-Wonder award with 7 holes-in-one for December was not present at the January Luncheon……..is Ann Lytle here this morning. (Present Ann with award.)

Today’s Reminder:  When beginning play, please place your ball 6” on either side of the flag marker, not in front or behind. And if the ball rolls off the green into the rough (that’s the long grass), you may place it 6” back onto the fringe but not onto the green.

Sunshine Committee:  Does anyone know of any Putter who is under par and in need of our well-wishes?

The Black Box is now located in the temporary Pro Shop and your access to the box will be limited to Pro Shop hours.

We no longer issue Winnings Cards but rather you will receive a Gift Card to HOA#2 for the Money Hole and multiple Holes-in-One. These cards can be redeemed at HOA#2 restaurants or the Pro Shop. The cards will be awarded at the monthly luncheon or Monday morning following the luncheon like today.

Our next Luncheon on February 12th is a celebration of our Founders and also a celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the MV Lady Putters. We will once again be back at HOA#1 for lunch. Please remember that our new cost for lunch is $18 and it starts with this lunch. So……. your $18 check is due no later than February 5th by 2 PM in the Black Box in the Pro Shop. The menu for this special luncheon will be: Frenched Chicken Breast with Lemon Artichoke Basil Sauce, White & Wild Rice, Fresh Green Beans, Rolls & Butter and, of course, Anniversary Cake! The usual station of Coffee, Iced Tea & Lemonade will be available as will a No Host Bar.

Annual Registration will take place on Friday, January 19th in the MV Ballroom. Arrival time for new members wishing to join or who have not yet received their orientation is 8:20 AM; and the doors will open for returning members at 9:00 AM. Please be thinking of your committee assignment for 2018. At Registration, we will have available descriptions of the committees and job assignments (these descriptions are also on the MVLP website for your review). Also available is the first meeting date for each committee, because it will be your responsibility to attend the first meeting and all subsequent meetings of the Committee. A good idea is to note these dates on your calendar for future reference. We are happy to have you sign up for more than one job but remember only one gift card will be issued. Should you put your name in for a 2nd job, please place your name at the bottom of the sheet and write “2nd” next to your name. All first choice names will be accepted and, only if there are openings after that, will you be considered.    And please remember that should you be unable to perform your job, it is your responsibility to find a replacement to take your place. If you are planning to order a new shirt, nametag or jacket at the meeting, you will need to write a separate check for your dues of $70 from the check for your order.

We are providing coffee and hot tea for you across the hall from the Ballroom while you are waiting for the doors to open at 9:00 AM.

The Monthly Trophy Winner of the Hole-in-Wonder award with 7 holes-in-one for December was not present at the Luncheon……..is Ann Lytle here this morning.

 Today’s Reminder:  Please go to the hole number you draw….do not change holes as the Chip Starters are working to even out the number of Putters on each hole. The desired number on a hole is 4 or 3 but never 2.   If you have 5 on your hole, someone should move to another hole with only 2 or 3.   Again, just look around and move to fill out the holes where necessary.

 Here are the STATS from our last putting on January 8th:

# of Putters:   60

# of Guests:   4

# Holes-in-One:   37

Money Hole was # 6………….Raye Cobb, Mary Cummins & Carol Ratza

Good morning ladies and welcome to putting on another beautiful morning.

Do we have any new Putters or Guests joining us this morning?   Recognize & Welcome!

Just a reminder that you need only to write the word “Guest” on the name line of your scorecard and, of course, a $1 greens fee given to the chip starters.

Sunshine Committee:  Does anyone know of any Putter who is under par and in need of our well-wishes?

The Black Box is now located in the temporary Pro Shop and your access to the box will be limited to Pro Shop hours.

You will now receive a Gift Card to HOA#2 for the Money Hole and multiple Holes-in-One and they can be redeemed at HOA#2 restaurants or Pro Shop. The cards will be awarded at the monthly luncheon or Monday morning following the luncheon.

Today is our monthly luncheon being held over at HOA#2 in the Ballroom. The doors will open at 11:30 for seating and a No Host Bar should also be available. There will be NO 50/50 today, as HOA#2 does not allow gambling and they consider the 50/50 that.

Annual Registration will take place on Friday, January 19th in the MV Ballroom. Arrival time for new members wishing to join or who have not yet received their orientation is 8:20 AM; and the doors will open for returning members at 9:00 AM. Everybody, as a member of Putters, is required to sign up for a job in the coming year. We ask that when selecting your job, you take into consideration the date of the first meeting of the Committee for that job, this date will be available at the table, because you will need to be at that first meeting and all subsequent meetings of the Committee. A good idea is to note these dates on your calendar for future reference. You are allowed to sign up for more than one job but, if you do so, you will need to sign at the bottom of the sheet and note next “2nd” next to your name.   All first choice names will be accepted first and, only if there are openings after that, will you be considered. After the completion of your job, you will receive a $10 gift card but only one card per Putter regardless of how many jobs you do. During the year, should you be unable to perform your job, it remains your responsibility to find a replacement to take your place. If you are planning to order a new shirt or jacket at the meeting, you will need to write a separate check for your dues of $70 from that order.

We are providing coffee and hot tea for you across the hall from the Ballroom while you are waiting for the doors to open at 9:00 AM.

Last Monday’s Holiday Luncheon was, I think you all will agree, a huge success!. The Committee really out did themselves and they are congratulated for a job well done!

This from Connie Pflapinger on the cookies we donated to the golf course crew: Hello Lady Putters, we had another successful cookie collection….. I packed 24 boxes of cookies the maintenance crew took home and then there was a Very Large Basket of Cookies they ate at lunch and probably took a few more home. Thank you all for your wonderful cookies and I have to admit..I did eat one or two.

A reminder that proper golf course attire is required on the putting green. The now so popular Tights, jeans, and gym clothes are never acceptable and we are required while putting to follow this restriction.

We are still looking for volunteers for this year’s combined Founder’s Day Luncheon and 20th Anniversary of MVLP’s on February 12th . We would like to put together a Committee early for this event because of the special planning that will go into it. Of course, if you volunteer for the Committee, it will satisfy your job requirement for 2018.

Today’s Reminder:  We try to play “ready” putting and with our “Snow Birds” returning this is even more important. Playing ready putting means if the group in front of you has moved on to their next hole, anyone on your team who is done can start on the next hole while your team is finishing up. Also, be ready to move to the start position while your team member is putting…….this also will aid in moving the game along in a timely manner.

Good morning ladies and welcome to putting on another beautiful morning!

Do we have any new Putters or Guests joining us this morning?   Recognize & Welcome!

Just a reminder to write the word “Guest” on the name line of your scorecard and, of course, a $1 greens fee given to the chip starters.

Sunshine Committee:  Does anyone know of any Putter who is under par and in need of our well-wishes?

A big “Thank You” to the Putter Partners Committee for making the evening such a hugh success.   We had 72 attending on a beautiful evening and everyone had a wonderful time!

The Black Box is now located in the temporary Pro Shop and your access to the box will be limited to Pro Shop hours. If you still have gift cards for the MountainView Pro Shop we would strongly advise that you redeem them at your earliest convenience. At the present time, you may special order merchandize from the Pro Shop, but their merchandise continues to diminish and will not be replenished.

The Pro Shop is no longer issuing Winnings Cards, instead your winnings will be listed at the Pro Shop desk for your redemption.

Today we have the sign-up sheet for the Holiday Luncheon available. Take a look, make a choice of the menu items offered, and sign your name. Please, do not fill out the sheet for any other Putter…..each Putter must sign for themselves. Linda or Sandy, would you like to say a few words about this event?

Today’s Reminder: Please leave all the markers out on the course at the finish of your round. We have a takedown crew who will bring the equipment in at the end of our game. So please leave all equipment on the course and this includes leaving the orange cones out to be brought in by the takedown crew.

Good morning ladies and welcome back to putting!

Do we have any new Putters or Guests joining us this morning?   Recognize & Welcome!

Just a reminder to write the word “Guest” on the name line of your scorecard and, of course, a $1 greens fee given to the chip starters.

Sunshine Committee:  Does anyone know of any Putter who is under par and in need of our well-wishes?

The Black Box is now located in the temporary Pro Shop and your access to the box will be limited to Pro Shop hours. It is our hope to locate the box somewhere on a wall where it will be accessable for more hours but that is something to be accomplished in the future.

If you still have gift cards for the MountainView Pro Shop we would strongly advise that you redeem them at your earliest convenience. Pro Shop merchandise continues to diminish and will not be replenished. In fact, the money on the winners cards expire December 31st…. so get in there and redeem your cards.

Also, if you don’t already have a Winnings Card, you won’t be issued one as we go forward to the end of the year. Your winnings will be listed in the Pro Shop for redemption.

Today we have the sign-up sheet for the Holiday Luncheon available. Take a look, make a choice of the menu items offered, and sign your name. Please, do not fill out the sheet for any other Putter…..each Putter must sign for themselves.

This Wednesday October 18th will be our Putter Partners Event here at Mountainview. Registration at 3:30 PM with putting beginning at 4 PM. The bar will open in the MV Ballroom at 5 PM with dinner being served at 6 PM.   So, for those of you attending, we look forward to seeing you there for another fabulous event full of fun, laughs and prizes.

Today’s Reminder: Please do not sign your scorecard before the end of your round. Your signing the card says you have checked your score and holes-in-one and agree with the totals on the card. In fact, after totaling the card, ask a 2nd Putter to check the totals to assure that all is accurate. These totals go toward the monthly awards and you want them to be as accurate as they can be.

Good morning ladies and welcome to another beautiful morning of putting!

Do we have any new Putters or Guests joining us this morning?   Recognize & Welcome!

Just a reminder to write the word “Guest” on the name line of your scorecard and, of course, a $1 greens fee given to the chip starters.

Sunshine Committee:  We heard that Pam Hall had a bad fall and broke her hip; she had surgery this weekend. There are many of us who have been touched by Pam and her wonderful meals provided to Putters after major illnesses over the years. We send our best wishes for a speedy recovery. Does anyone know of any Putter who is under par and in need of our well-wishes?

The Black Box has been taken off the wall in the hallway and both the black box and yellow box will be found sitting on the desk in the little office room at the back of the Pro Shop and out here on the patio this morning.  If you did not bring your check this morning for the October 9th Luncheon, then you can bring it to the Luncheon today. Because the Pro Shop will be closing on September 18th, and if you haven’t paid today, you will need to either mail or drop off your check at Joanne Neuman’s home at 62674 E. Oakwood Dr. by the deadline of October 2nd at 2:00 PM. Joanne will have the box in her court yard where you can deposit your check.

(Allow Joanne to give out gift cards.)

Today is our September luncheon being held over at HOA#1 and seating opens at 10:30 in the dining area.   Don’t forget to bring something for the 50/50 because today may be your lucky day!

The MV course closes on September 18th for overseeding and will remain closed thru October 9th. We will have our luncheon on October 9th although there will be no putting that morning. And as mentioned before, if you haven’t dropped off your $17 check as yet for the October Luncheon, you can do that at Joanne’s house by October 2nd.

After overseeding, you may want to get into the Pro Shop and spend your Winnings as their stock will continue to diminish from now until Transition. We don’t know what will happen after Transition but we also don’t want you to lose your Winnings. From now on, when you win at Putters, Holes-in-One, Money Hole, or multiple Holes-in-One, they will no longer put your winnings on a Winnings Card but are going to keep a running list of your Winnings in the Pro Shop. So, if you don’t already have a Winnings Card, you won’t get one before the end of the year but your Winnings will be listed in the Pro Shop for redemption.

Just a brief detail about the Putter Partners Event coming up on October 18th. This event is open to all Putters and a partner, whether you wish to bring your spouse, your partner, a friend, a neighbor or come with another Putter. I understand that our new Putters were not clear on this, so come, enjoy a fun afternoon and evening, and bring along anyone you like.  Come on up Roberta and say a few words about the particulars of this Event. *Add after Roberta speaks: Checks for this Event can be brought to the October 9th Luncheon, dropped at Joanne’s or mailed to Joanne’s but be sure to meet the deadline of October 9th. And be sure to add your Partner’s name on your check.

Today’s Reminder: Please do not sign your scorecard before the end of your round. Your signing the card says you have checked your score and holes-in-one and agree with the totals on the card. In fact, after totaling the card, ask a 2nd Putter to check the totals to assure that all is accurate. These totals go toward the monthly awards and you want them to be as accurate as they can be.

Another reminder: When completing your round, only take down your last hole after putting, do not pick up markers from other holes.

Next Monday, September 11th, will be our September luncheon and your $17 check needs to be in today no later than 2:00 PM. Lunch will be Spinach & Swiss Cheese Quiche, Side Salad with Ranch & Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing on the table, Rolls & Butter. Dessert will be Chocolate Mousse with Whipped Cream.

The MV course closes on September 18th for overseeding and will remain closed thru October 9th. We will have our luncheon on October 9th although there will be no putting that morning. The dining room at SaddleBrooke will open for seating at 10:30 as usual that day. We would also suggest that you consider putting your $17 check for the October 9th Luncheon in as well today, being SURE to label the memo lines of your separate checks with the dates of each luncheon. This will help our Treasurer Joanne Neumann to cash each check at the appropriate time. For those of you who only want to put in the September check today, we will announce an alternate location for the check drop-off in the coming weeks.

Today’s Reminder: Please place your name on your putter for a quick return should you leave it here after putting. An address label will serve nicely for this purpose.

Just a reminder to write the word “Guest” on the name line of your scorecard and, of course, a $1 greens fee given to the chip starters.

Sunshine Committee:    Does anyone know of any other Putter who is under par and in need of our well-wishes?  Stef Modos sent me an e-mail last evening asking that I relay her thanks to everyone for all the cards, prayers & good wishes you have been sending her way.

We have been informed by Mike Jahaske of the Pro Shop that all Winnings card balances have been transferred into their new North Star System and are active and available for use.  But then he states they are beginning to update recent winnings and should be up to date soon.  A little confusing but go try your card and see if you were in the first batch.

The Black Box has been taken off the wall in the hallway and both the black box and yellow box will be found sitting on the desk in the little office room at the back of the Pro Shop.  That’s where checks for our luncheons will be deposited until the completion of the renovation.  Pease note that during the remodeling, the only access to the Pro Shop may be from this patio.

Vicki, Gay and I visited First Avenue Elementary School in San Manuel this past Wednesday and presented their Principal Katy Wilkins with our $600 check donation.  She expressed gratitude for our generosity and said the money would be used to purchase 375 Student planners and chair-back folders for each student in the school.  She explained that in San Manuel there is no corporate or business presence with whom to partner for additional needs, so this kind of financial support is so very important.

(Allow Joanne to give out gift cards.)

Our next luncheon will be on September 11th and checks need to be in next  Monday, September 4th, no later than 3:00 PM.  Lunch that day will be Spinach & Swiss Cheese Quiche, Side Salad with Ranch & Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing on the table, Rolls & Butter.  Dessert will be Chocolate Mousse with Whipped Cream.

Today’s Reminder:  Remember to have a good time out there on the course, make a new friend while putting, and be courteous to the other putters around you!

Good morning ladies and welcome to another beautiful morning of putting! This morning we are going to experience a solar eclipse, if the clouds allow, and we would recommend that you not look up unless you have the appropriate glasses for viewing this……better safe than sorry!

Do we have any new Putters or Guests joining us this morning?   Recognize & Welcome!

Just a reminder to write the word “Guest” on the name line of your scorecard and, of course, a $1 greens fee given to the chip starters.

Sunshine Committee:  We learned this weekend that our past President Kim Halper was transferred to Banner on Thursday and under went surgery. She is recovering in ICU for another few days and her husband Allen asks for no visitors, phone calls, gifts or flowers until she is recuperated enough to enjoy them. He will let us know when Kim is ready, so please respect this request. There is a card here on the patio for you to sign for Kim, so please do so.

Does anyone know of any other Putter who is under par and in need of our well-wishes?

The Black Box has been taken off the wall in the hallway and both the black box and yellow box will be found sitting on the desk in the little office room at the back of the Pro Shop.  That’s where checks for our luncheons will be deposited until the completion of the renovation.  Pease note that during the remodeling, the only access to the Pro Shop may be from this patio.

Raye Cobb was told by the Principal of First Avenue Elementary School in San Manuel that our Box Tops are helping to buy new playground equipment for the school. So thank you for saving those box tops because they are a big help to the school and much appreciated. Vicki & I will be going to First Avenue Elementary on Wednesday to give them a check in the amount of $600, a result of your generosity.

Our next luncheon will be on September 11th and checks will need to be in by Monday, September 4th, no later than 3:00 PM. Lunch that day will be Spinach & Swiss Cheese Quiche, Side Salad with Ranch & Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing on the table, Rolls & Butter. Dessert will be Chocolate Mousse with Whipped Cream.

Today’s Reminder: Please go to the hole number you draw….do not change holes as the Chip Starters are working to even out the number of Putters on each hole. The desired number on a hole is 4 or 3 but never 2.   If you have 5 on your hole, someone should move to another hole with only 2 or 3.  Again, just look around and move if you can help even out the other holes.

Good morning ladies and a special welcome to our friends the Ranchettes who are joining us this morning for putting and lunch afterwards.

Do we have any new Putters or Guests joining us this morning?   Recognize & Welcome!

Just a reminder to write the letter “G” before the name of the Ranchette on your scorecard. Our scores will count today toward monthly awards, so let’s make it easier for Maralyn to find those scores.

Sunshine Committee:  Does anyone know of a Putter who is under par and in need of our well-wishes? Kim Halper is in the hospital for tests and unable to attend today’s luncheon, so we have a luncheon ticket available………would anyone be interested in her ticket?

The Black Box has been taken off the wall in the hallway and both the black box and yellow box will be found sitting on the desk in the little office room at the back of the Pro Shop.  That’s where checks for our luncheons will be deposited until the completion of the renovation.  Pease note that during the remodeling, the only access to the Pro Shop may be from this patio.

The yellow box is out here on the patio today and will also be at the Luncheon for donations to Teachers’ School Supplies. Today is the deadline for this, so be sure to drop a little something in the yellow box one last time. Your donations are much appreciated. Both Vicki & I will be taking our donation to First Avenue Elementary school in San Manuel very soon.

Hopefully we have succeeded in placing at least one Ranchette on each hole. Our Putters will keep track of scores and assist with any questions that might arise out on the course. If you have not putted with our bumper holes before, they are treated as the cut hole in that you need to hit the bumper with your ball and hitting it on your first try counts as a hole-in-one. If after 3 tries you have not hit the bumper, take a score of 4 on your card and move on. Any Putter on your team will be able to assist you.  After our game this morning, we’ll all head over to the SaddleBrooke clubhouse for lunch. While there, you will have the opportunity to take a chance on our 50/25/25 drawing where you might win the “big bucks.”

Today’s Reminder: Putters, please remember to initial your scorecard at the end of your round if you want your score to count. Also, check that your holes-in-one have been noted on the card and totaled at the bottom of the card. These steps along with initialing the card will ensure that your score goes toward qualifying for awards.

# of Putters:   47

Good morning ladies and welcome to putting. Cancellations for rain will be determined by 7:00 AM on Monday morning. Should putting be cancelled due to rain, Putters will be notified by both a NewsBlast and a posting on the website.

Next Monday, August 14th, we will be hosting the Ranchettes from SaddleBrooke Ranch for a morning get-together of putting and lunch.   Lunch that day will be: Pulled Pork Sandwich w/BBQ Sauce and Cole Slaw on the sandwich, Side Salad with Ranch & Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing on the table, along with Kettle Chips in bowls on the table, and Brownies for dessert.  Today is the deadline for getting your check for $17 in the Black Box before 3:00 PM for this event, and please note “August Luncheon” on the memo line of your check.

Raye Cobb has collected and is mailing 300 Box Tops to 1st Avenue Elementary School. She is also sending 52 Campbell Soup Labels although Campbell Soup is no longer participating but hoping that they will accept them. Thank you ladies for your support with the box tops & labels as this represents an additional $30 to the school.

A Putter has stepped forward and offered to do Event Advisor but she would like to have a partner with her. This year we had co-Event Advisors and it worked well with each taking half of the events for the year. This position provides an opportunity to meet many Putters who are serving on the various committees. If someone would like to share this position, please let me, Vicki, or any Board Member know of your interest. The Putters Board wants to thank those of you who have stepped forward to fill vacancies on the 2018 Board.

Today’s Reminder: Our goal is to play “ready” putting, this means if the group in front of you has moved on to their next hole, anyone on your team who is done can start on the next hole while your team is finishing up. Also, be ready to move to the start position while your team member is putting…….this also will move the game along in a timely manner.

Work on the Mesquite/Pro Shop building has begun.  Our Black Box has been taken off the wall in the hallway and both the black box and yellow box will be found sitting on the desk in the little office room at the back of the Pro Shop.  That’s where checks for our luncheons will be deposited until the completion of the renovation and we are able to replace them in the hallway.  It’s possible that the black boxes for the Lady Niners & 18er’s and Men’s group may also be sitting on that little desk, so be sure to check that the label says MVLP before depositing your check. Rest assured that those checks already in the Black Box have been retrieved and Joanne has them. Please note that during the remodeling, the only access to the Pro Shop may be from this patio.

Good morning ladies and welcome to putting.  The Monsoon rains have finally started and our excessive days of heat are hopefully in the past.   Last Monday we welcomed the MV Lady Niners to putt with us and all had a wonderful time both at putting and at the Luncheon.

Do we have any new Putters or Guests joining us this morning?   Recognize & Welcome!

Just a reminder to write the word “Guest” on the name line of your  scorecard and, of course, a $1 greens fee given to the chip starters.

Sunshine Committee:    Does anyone know of a Putter who is under par and in need of our well-wishes?

No monthly awards were given at the luncheon last Monday because we only putted once during the month of June where the stats were recorded.   We are taking those stats from that one June putting and combining them with the stats we are presently earning in July for award purposes.   So at the August Luncheon, monthly awards for the June & July combined stats will be awarded.

We will be hosting the Ranchettes from SaddleBrooke Ranch on August 14th for a morning get-together of putting and lunch.   Lunch that day will be:  Pulled Pork Sandwich w/BBQ Sauce and Cole Slaw on the sandwich, Side Salad with Ranch & Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing on the tables, Kettle Chips in bowls on the table, and Brownies for dessert.  So be sure and get your check of $17 in by Monday, August 7th, for another fun day of friendly putting with our guests from the Ranch.

The Putters Board wishes to thank those of you who have stepped forward to fill vacancies on the 2018 Board.    There are only a few positions still open and not least of these is the important position of Treasurer.  Surely there is one among us who can step up to fill this position.  Please let   Sandy Cavender or Ann Hamm know of your willingness to help by filling one of these much needed vacancies or get in touch with any Board Member.

Today’s Reminder:   Proper attire is required on the course, no denim of any color.  Shorts and skirts must reach mid-thigh and no gym clothes.  Sleeveless Shirts are OK with or without a collar but the majority of the shoulder must be covered.

Good morning ladies and a special welcome to our guests the MV Niners.     We are very happy that you were able to join us today, and we look forward to a fun game out on the green this morning and a delicious lunch shared with our friends.  What a patriotic sight this is to see all of you dressed in your best Red, White & Blue! Today at lunch we will be celebrating our July 4th national holiday and your wearing of the colors is most appropriate for the occasion.

Do we have any new Putters joining us this morning? Have any Putters brought a guest with them today? Just a reminder that guests of Putters should write “Guest” on the name line of the scorecard and, of course, a $1 greens fee given to the chip starter. Niners will also need to write “Guest” on their scorecards but no additional $1 is needed for greens fees.

Sunshine Committee: I am sure that most of you know that our dear Putter Stef Modos has been in the hospital recently and is now at home.   We all wish Stef the very best in her recovery, and today we are thrilled to have Stef join us at lunch. Please take a moment when you see her today and let her know that you have her in your thoughts & prayers and wish for her speedy recovery.   Do we know of any other Putter who is under par and in need of our well-wishes?

Since we only putted once during the month of June where stats were recorded, we will take the stats from that one June putting and combine them with July stats for award purposes.  So no monthly awards will be given at lunch today and we will resume the awards at the August luncheon.

The Putters Board wishes to thank those of you who have stepped forward to fill vacancies on the 2018 Board.   There are only a few positions still open and not least of these is the important position of Treasurer. Surely there is one among us who can step up to fill this position. Please let   Sandy Cavender or Ann Hamm know of your willingness to help by filling one of these much needed vacancies or get in touch with any Board Member.

If you are feeling lucky today, 50/50 chances will be available at the luncheon at a cost of $1 each chance or 6 for $5.

Today’s Reminder in honor of our guests: Friendship improves happiness and abates misery, by doubling our joys and dividing our grief. So today let us make new friends!

Here are the STATS for last Monday, July 3rd:

# of Putters:   47

# of Guests:   2

Good morning ladies and welcome to putting on this the first Monday in July.

Do we have any new Putters joining us this morning?  Do we have any guests with us today?

Sunshine Committee: Do we know of any Putter who is under par and in need of our well-wishes?

Since we only putted once during the month of June, Goofy Golf stats were not taken, we will take the stats from one June putting and combine them with July for award purposes.

Next Monday, July 10th is our putting get-together with the MV Lady 9er’s, and they will also be joining us for lunch. Today at 3:00 PM is the deadline for getting your $17 check in the Black Box for the luncheon. Please note on the memo line of your check “July Luncheon.”

The lunch being served on July 10th is: Sugar Cane Shrimp Skewer Salad on a bed of Mixed Greens, with Avocado, Fresh Tomato, grilled Red Onion, grilled Jicama. Ranch and Herb Vinaigrette Dressings will be on the table. Dessert will be Apple Pie with Vanilla Ice Cream. Beverage station will offer Iced Tea, Lemonade, and both Decaf and Regular Coffee.

We ask everyone to wear Red, White & Blue on the 10th as we will honor the 4th of July at our Luncheon.

Finally, we are still in need of new volunteers for the 2018 Putters Board.   Please think it over and decide if you can do something to help by becoming an active member of the Board. Sandy Cavender and Ann Hamm are seeking volunteers, so let them know if you are interested in helping our group by joining the Board or get in touch with any Board Member if you have questions on the different positions.

For those of you who have been wondering why putting was cancelled, the front page of the Sunday edition of the AZ Daily Star stated that this June has been the hottest June in the history of Tucson in 130 years. Since 115 degrees was predicted and we have no shade on the course, the Board felt that cancelling was necessary, not only for the safety of the membership but also for the set-up crew who are here an hour before we start and again after we finish, and this makes for an exceedingly long, hot job. We will continue to monitor the temperatures forecasted for Monday mornings and we will do whatever is best for the putters.

Today’s Reminder: Beat the heat out there on the course this morning by drinking plenty of Water, having a hat and sun block on for your protection. Should you feel light headed during the morning, please head for the patio and shade!

Here are the STATS for the last Monday we putted, June 5th:

# of Putters:   46

# of Guests:   2

Our putting session for today, Monday, July 26th, has been cancelled due to the extreme hot weather we are experiencing. Our hope is that with the beginning of Monsoon season, we will be able to resume putting on Monday, July 3rd.

Our July 10th Luncheon is fast approaching. This will be a joint putting affair with the Mountainview Lady Niners, so please join us for a morning of fun followed by the Niners joining us at our luncheon.

The lunch on July 10th will be Sugar Cane Shrimp Skewer Salad on a bed of Mixed Greens, with Avocado, Fresh Tomato, grilled Red Onion, grilled Jicama. Ranch and Herb Vinaigrette Dressings will be on the table. Dessert will be Apple Pie with Vanilla Ice Cream. Beverage station will offer Iced Tea, Lemonade, and both Decaf and Regular Coffee.

We ask everyone to wear Red, White & Blue on the 10th as we will honor the 4th of July at our Luncheon.

June 19, 2017 – Putting was cancelled today due to excessive heat.

 

June 12, 2017  

 Good Morning Ladies and welcome!

Do we have any new Putters joining us this morning? Do we have any guests with us today?

If so: Just a reminder that “Guest” should be written on the name line of the scorecard and $1 for greens fees put in the envelope at the chip starter table.

Sunshine Committee: We have learned that Ellen Mandes has fallen while back in Connecticut and was hospitalized. A card will be sent by our Sunshine Committee as soon as we can get an address for her.

Does anyone know of another Putter who may be under par and in need of our well-wishes?

The containers are out for both Box Tops and Labels for Education. Also you can drop something in the yellow box for Teacher’s school supplies this morning.

Today is “Goofy Golf,” so go out there and have fun! No stats or money hole today, so no pressure! If you are coming to the luncheon, the doors open at 10:30 for seating with a brief meeting at 11:00 and lunch being served around 11:15. Don’t forget the 50/50 will take place today and we’ll also have the yellow box out for donations to Teachers’ School Supplies.

Currently we are in need of course set-up people in July for 1 or 2 weeks. If you are still looking for a job for this year or if you have the time, please let Joyce or Mary Beth or any member of the Board know.

Now an important request: We are in need of new volunteers for the 2018 Putters Board. At present, we have 8 openings on the Board and this is the most we have seen in a long time. Please think it over and decide if you can do something to help and become an active member of the Board. Sandy Cavender and Ann Hamm are seeking volunteers, so let them know if you are interested in helping our group by joining the Board or get in touch with any Board Member if you have questions on the different positions.

Today’s Reminder: We know that some of the holes have leaning poles and last week you were told to hold the pole straight, if needed, or take it out entirely. After watching this happen last week, it was evident that having a person stand at the hole is an impediment to putting.  We have tried to replace the leaning poles this week with poles borrowed from the chipping green, but in any event, please leave the poles in their hole and putt as we have been doing in the past regardless of whether or not the pole is leaning. In the event the Pro Shop ever finds the missing poles, we will replace the broken poles but in the meantime, we will use the borrowed poles.

Here are the STATS for last Monday, June 5th:

 Good Morning Ladies and welcome!

Do we have any new Putters joining us this morning? Do we have any guests with us today?

If so: Just a reminder that “Guest” should be written on the name line of the scorecard and $1 for greens fees put in the envelope at the chip starter table.

Sunshine Committee: Does anyone know of another Putter who may be under par and in need of our well-wishes?

The containers are out for both Box Tops and Labels for Education. At the present time, we are running way behind in donations for Teacher’s school supplies so let’s not forget to drop something in the yellow box.

Today’s confusion over whether or not the putting green would be available for us to putt has led to the following: Pat Storey will have a notice on our Website if we are cancelling putting for any reason, so that’s the place to look should there be a cancellation of putting for any reason going forward.

GOOFY GOLF:  Today is the last day to put your check in for our Luncheon next Monday, June 12th. On the menu next Monday is Sunny Delight Chicken Salad on a bed of greens with hot rolls & butter, choice of dressing, and Lemon Cake for dessert. Your $17 check must be in the Black Box no later than 3:00 PM today, so if you forgot to bring it this morning, please bring it back before 3 PM. Along with the Luncheon, “Goofy Golf” will take place on the putting green in the morning, and although you can dress Hawaiian for this fun day, the Hawaiian theme is optional but not required. So come, however you wish, but come to join the fun!

Today’s Reminder: Please place your name on your putter for a quick return should you leave it here after putting. An address label will serve nicely for this purpose. Also, we know that some of the holes have leaning poles but this will not stop your ball from going into the hole. You must leave the pole in the hole while putting.

Along with Goofy Golf, we will have the June luncheon of Sunny Delight Chicken Salad on a bed of greens with hot Rolls & butter, choice of dressing to accompany the salad, and Lemon Cake for dessert!

The desired number on a hole is 4 or 3 but never 2.   If you have 5 on your hole, someone should move to another hole with only 2 or 3.   Again, just look around and move if you can help even out the other holes.

If so: Just a reminder that “Guest” should be written on the name line of the scorecard and $1 for greens fees put in the envelope at the ship starter table.

Sunshine Committee: Does anyone know of another Putter who may be under par and in need of our well-wishes?

The containers are out for both Box Tops and Labels for Education. At the present time, we are running way behind in donations for Teacher’s school supplies so why don’t we make a special effort to bring some little donation to the luncheon today to drop in the yellow box.

Moonlight Madness: Moonlight Madness was held last Monday evening and despite the rain, a good time was had by all.   Only 5 teams finished all 18 holes and the decision was made by the Committee that you had to finish all 18 holes to win. The winners of the evening were: 1st place team:   Nancy and Tony Jewett and Mark and Lorna Kitchen; 2nd place team : Melody and Jim Branstrom, Darlene Pitman and Sandy Strack;
Most holes in 1: Pat Arruda with 5 holes in one; The Money Hole was split by 3 winners: Dave Streif, Tony Jewett and Pat Arruda

GOOFY GOLF:  Mark your calendar for our next special event of Goofy Golf on Monday, June 12th , which is the date of our June Luncheon, and remember to dress Hawaiian on that day. More information to follow.

Winners Cards: At the beginning of this year the Board voted to use HOA#1 for winnings cards only.   If you have an HOA#2 card and are not sure where to use it, please contact the Administration Office at HOA#2 for a balance on the card but if they tell you that the card shows no balance, then you must take the card to the MV Pro Shop to have them check the card for a balance. We have learned that the computer systems at MV Bistro and Pro Shop do not talk to each other, so in order to find out where the card can be used, you must contact them individually. The MV red “Winnings Cards” are a separate issue. The winnings you earn from multiple Holes-in-One and the Money Hole each Monday are put on your MV Winnings card and you must redeem them by the end of the year at the MV Pro Shop.

Today is our monthly luncheon at HOA#1.  Lunch will be served at 11:00 with the doors opening at 10:30. Don’t forget to bring something for the 50/50 because today may be your lucky day!

Today’s Reminder: When finishing your round of putting, if you are not on the Take-down team but want to help, please, only bring in the numbered round flag of the hole that you end on….the Take-down team will see to the rest of the equipment.

A special congratulations to Sandy Strack who won a $50 gift card to spend at Fresh Produce.

Moonlight Madness: How about an update from Jan and Lorna on the upcoming Moonlight Madness on May 8th at this time. And don’t forget that  if you are wanting to join the fun that evening but are in need of a partner or are available for partnering, just let Jan & Lorna or any Board member know and we will hook you up with a partner.

Today’s Reminder: When beginning play, please place your ball 6” on either side of the flag marker, not in front or behind; and if your ball rolls off the green and into the rough (which is the shaggy grass), you may pick it up and place it 6” back onto the fringe but not onto the green.

Good Morning Ladies and welcome on this beautiful Spring morning of putting.

The containers are out for both Box tops and Labels for Education. And please don’t forget to drop something in the yellow box for Teacher’s school supplies. Let’s make a special effort to donate to this worthwhile cause. And we thank you for your generous support of our local schools.

Quail Creek: Last Wednesday our Putters travelled to Quail Creek. It was a wonderful event and a good time was had by all. If you missed this year, be sure and sign up next year in April when we will be welcoming the Quail Creek putters here at Mountain View.

Fashion Show: Today is our “Fresh Produce” Fashion Show at the MV Clubhouse. Doors will open at 10:30 and we’ll get things started promptly at 11:00. Remember it is open seating, so get there early if you are bringing guests and wish to get seats together.

Moonlight Madness: Moonlight Madness is coming up on May 8th and the Committee is working hard to make this a memorable evening. Reserve the date on your calendar and bring your partner or a friend for an evening of fun putting under the light of the Moon. If you are wanting to join the fun but are in need of a partner or are available for partnering, just let any Board member know and we will hook you up with a partner.

We are still in need of one more Publicity person to work with Jean Kraus. If you can help in this way, please let Jean or any Board member know of your interest.

There have been requests to allow “Snow Birds” on the Board. The By-Laws state that permanent residency is required for a position, but the Board is willing to look at each request on an individual basis and take into consideration time spent in SB and availability.

Today’s Reminder: Please go to the hole number you draw from the Chip Starters and do not change holes. The Chip Starters are working hard to even out the holes. The desired number on a hole is 4, so if you see a hole with only 2 or 3 and you have more than necessary, then move over to that hole. Or if you have 5 on your hole, again, look for a hole where you can even out the number.

Our Fall/Winter hours: This is our last morning of putting at 9:30 because our Spring/Summer hours begin next Monday, April 3rd, at 8:30 AM and   will continue until October. Remember with this change to Summer hours, our “Special Event” attire also changes to white bottoms and our club pink shirts. Luncheons during the Spring/Summer will be held at 11:00, with doors opening at 10:30.

Quail Creek: Today is your last chance to join us on our trip to Quail Creek on Wednesday, April 5th. Your check for $20 needs to be in the black box today no later than 3 PM.   We will wear our summer attire of white slacks and pink club shirt for this event. Please meet in front of the MV clubhouse at 7:45 AM sharp! where the plan is to gather together for a group picture BEFORE entering the bus. The Quail Creek participants’ list will be posted on the website under “Special Events.” It will also have the alternates listed. If you hear nothing from us after placing your check in the black box, then consider yourself confirmed.

As always we are collecting both Box tops and Labels for Education. Raye says that when purchasing Kleenex boxes from Costco or Sam’s, the box tops are on the plastic wrap on the outside of the package and not on the individual boxes. In addition, we have the yellow box available every Monday for school donations, as well.

Fashion Show: Stef Modus will now talk about our “Fresh Produce” Fashion Show being held on Monday, April 10th at the MV Clubhouse.

Reminders: So as not to bore you with too many reminders, we are going to limit them each week to just a few and Today’s reminders are: (1) When beginning play, please place your ball 6” on either side of the flag marker, not in front or behind  (2) And if the ball rolls off the green into the rough (that’s the long grass), you may place it 6” back onto the fringe but not onto the green! And finally, (3) Remember when taking down the course, all supplies that fit go into the drawers, the drawer is locked and the key returned to the front desk. If the umbrellas do not fit into the drawer, they can go into the trolley box with the bumpers.

 Here are the STATS for last Monday, March 20th:

# of Putters:   78

 February 27th, 2017

Good Morning Ladies: And welcome! After receiving more membership slips last week, our membership numbers now stands at 120. Welcome to all! Do we have any guests.  Just a reminder that “guest” should be written on the name line of the scorecard and $1 for greens free put in the envelope at the chip starter table.

Our Sunshine Committee:  We know Maralyn Shirk’s husband Gale has been in the hospital and is now home. We send well-wishes their way.

Pat Wells Update: We are thrilled to announce that Pat’s husband Rick is soon to come home and we happily anticipate Pat’s return to participation in MVLP.

Course Set-Up Clinic today – Prior to putting today, Vicki Strief explained how to do our course set-up to anyone interested in learning this procedure.

Our Fall/Winter hours continue through the End of March with putting at 9:30 a.m. only. Summer hours begin the 1st of April when putting switches to 8:30 a.m. and our special event attire changes to white bottoms with our pink shirts. Luncheons during the Spring/Summer hours will be held at 11:00, with doors opening at 10:30.

Putter/Sputter Event: Next Monday, March 6th is our Putter Sputter Event at HOA 1’s putting green for all of those with a spot in the lottery for this fun event. If you signed up to participate and did NOT get a call saying you were on the waiting list, then you are going to be participating. Putters will wear their black slacks and pink putters’ shirts (light or dark pink) and meet at the registration table downstairs at HOA 1 near the putting green at 9:00 a.m. next Monday. There will be NO putting here at HOA2 on March 6th. For a list of attendees and alternates, you can go to our Website (mvlputters.com) under Special Events.

Monthly Luncheon: Our regularly scheduled monthly luncheon will be the following week on March 13th at HOA 1. This will be a St. Patricks affair, so all are encouraged to wear “green.” The menu will be a turkey and brie tortilla wrap with cranberry chutney and shredded lettuce, fruit salad and chocolate mousse with whipped cream. We’ll have our usual beverage station with iced tea, lemonade and coffee. The cost of the lunch is $17 and checks will need to be in by the 6th, which is our Putter Sputter day over at HOA 1. There will be a NewsBlast reminder to get the checks in by 3:00 the 6th, but we’ll all need to make an extra effort to remember since we won’t be here putting HERE on the 6th.

Quail Creek: This is the first day that we’ve mentioned our second special event, Quail Creek. This terrific event will take place on April 5th at Quail Creek. For those of you who are new to Putters, we gather at Mountain View on the morning of the 5th and travel together on a bus to the Robson Quail Creek Club House and putting green where the Quail Creek Putters will host us to a fun-filled round of putting and a delightful luncheon…..and yes, there will be prizes!

The boxes are out for our collection of both Boxtop and Labels for Education. Please be sure to check the expiration dates before dropping in the box. Thank you from our schools!!!

A reminder to all who are kind enough to help with course takedown: just bring in the poles with bumpers and leave those in the cut holes out on the green! Our thanks for your help!

Please remember to PRINT your names on the score cards– No cursive; put the number of holes-in- one on the line beside your name and then total them at the bottom of the score card. And, be sure scores are tallied accurately and initialed.

Stats for Feb. 20th, 2017

Putters:   71

W/4 Holes: Joyce Sutay and Verna Sak

W/5 Holes: 0

Low Gross:      39  – Joyce Sutay

I have a couple of Reminders:

  • If you are bringing guests, be sure to arrive about 5-10 minutes before the Announcements begin at 9:30 so you can be sure to have time to take care of the greens fee, draw a chip or get a score board to insure you can all play together without confusion.
  • Remember to assist newcomers and guests on the green. If anyone has a question about the process of play, the people playing in their group should be the ones to offer suggestions. The tone we use in explaining the protocols of play can go a long way to insure that we all come away with a positive experience that enhances the spirit of camaraderie for all.

Just a reminder that “guest” should be written on the name line of the scorecard and $1 for greens free put in the envelope at the chip starter table.

Pat Wells husband Rick: We have positive news to share with you about Pat Wells’ husband, Rick. Last Friday he was moved to a rehabilitation center and is showing signs of slow, but steady improvement. We continue to send healing thoughts and prayers their way and are encouraged by these developments.

Our Sunshine Committee of Diane Lunghi and Linda Edwards have placed a card for long-time Putter Emily Anderson on the table for all to sign. While Emily no longer lives in SaddleBrooke, our well-wishes are with her as she recovers in the hospital. Does anyone know of another putter who may be under par?

Last week we mentioned that we are stepping back from our Meals on Wheels program for Putters who have had surgery. The final meal delivery from that program was delivered to Jeannie Hepner by Stef Modos and I have a note to share from Jeannie: (read note).

Our Fall/Winter hours continue through the End of March with putting at 9:30 a.m. only.

Today is the last day to get checks in to participate in the Putter/Sputter event on March 6th at HOA 1. A NewsBlast about this went out on Friday, so I hope you all received it. There will be no regularly scheduled putting here at HOA 2 March 6th, as P/S participants will be at HOA 1 for the event and luncheon. The check for $17 needs to be in the black box by 3:00 today for those wanting to participate in this fun event.

The boxes are out for our collection of both Boxtop and Labels for Education. We have the yellow box available every Monday for school donations, as well.

Darlene Pittman has asked me to remind everyone to please PRINT your names on the score cards– No cursive, please. Also, be sure that the number of holes-in- one are beside your name line and then they are totaled at the bottom of the score card. Also be sure scores are tallied accurately and initialed.

Good Morning Ladies: And welcome! We now have 117 members and I’m wondering if any ladies who are new to MVLP in 2017 are here today ? And we also want to welcome any guests. Just a reminder that “guest” should be written on the name line of the scorecard and $1 for greens free put in the envelope at the chip starter table.

Pat Wells husband Rick: We continue to hold Pat and her family in our thoughts. When we hear an update we will pass it along.

Just an update on the “meals on wheels” we’ve provided for those under par from surgeries: Although this has been a nice thing, with the resignation of our latest cook from providing meals on wheels, the Board has decided to discontinue this gesture. Going forward, the membership will all be informed of those under par and cards will be available to sign before Diane Lunghi (Sunshine Committee) sends them. It appears that friends and neighbors tend to fill this role, so we are stepping back from it at this time. Stef Modos was kind enough to purchase a final dinner at Bashas and then deliver it to Jeannine Hepner. Sherry Grossman declined the offer. Does anyone know of another putter who may be under par?

As you know, our Fall/Winter hours continue through the End of March with putting at 9:30 a.m. only. Putter attire for special events during this time is our pink shirts with black bottoms. We start our summer hours the 1st of April when putting switches to 8:30 a.m. and our special event attire changes to white bottoms with our pink shirts. Luncheons during the Spring/Summer hours will be held at 11:00.

Today is our Founders Day/Valentine luncheon for those of you who turned in $17 checks for this event last Monday, the 6th of February by 3:00 p.m., the doors at HOA1 will open at 11:30 and our meeting and luncheon will begin at 12:00.

I have been asked by our Treasurer to be sure to remind everyone that the checks must be in the black box by the 3:00 deadline, as she will not be checking the box after that time and will turn the number of attendees in to HOA1 at that time. Once that food order goes in, it’s not usually possible to add anyone.

Our first Special Event of the year is the Putter/Sputter event on March 6th. We will be joining the Sputters at their HOA1 green for the day. The Flyer is posted in the Pro Shop and complete information can be found on the MVLP Website. The final day to get your $17 check in for the Putter/Sputter Event will be Monday, Feb. 20th at 3:00 p.m. and a reminder News Blast will be sent.

The boxes are out for our collection of both Boxtop and Labels for Education. We have the yellow box available every Monday for school donations, as well. Raye Cobb asks that we please check the expiration dates before dropping in the box. Thank you all for supporting our local schools in this way.

Now a note about gift cards: (Explain that the $20 gift cards given out at the Holiday Luncheon and the $10 cards given at the annual meeting for HOA2, are only good at the pro shop due to the software incompatibility issues with the new computer system).

Pat Wells husband Rick has been transferred to University Hospital where he is now a bit more stable, but still seriously ill. We continue to hold Pat and her family in our thoughts.
