Good morning, Ladies.  Happy Thanksgiving!  Welcome to another beautiful day of putting in SaddleBrooke.

Introduce yourself to Colleen Halvorson.  She’s our newest member.

Do we have any guests today? … Please put a “G” for guest after your name on the score card.

Carol Ratza had hip surgery a couple of weeks ago. There is a card for her on the table. Please sign to let her know we are thinking of her.

Julie Smith’s husband had a stroke this weekend. He is doing well but Julie isn’t here this morning.  She is on the take-down committee this month.  Could someone fill in for her today?  Thanks.

Is there anyone else who is under par or in need of our well wishes?

Deb has some winners’ cards.

Our December lunch is coming up on the 10th.  This is the luncheon that your dues pay for.  And it is a holiday party.  Time to get out your festive sweaters.  It is at HOA#1 in the dining room.  Doors open at 11:30 as usual.  There are 3 choices of entrée:  braised all-natural Frenched chicken breast with smoke mushroom demi sauce served with white and wild rice and fresh green beans OR bacon-wrapped smoked pork loin with carmelized peach sauce served with white and wild rice and fresh green beans OR (and this is the vegetarian option) Mediterranean bowtie pesto pasta with olives, red onions, tomatoes, artichokes, with pesto cream. Dessert for all will be mint chocolate chip ice cream with chocolate sauce and lady fingers.  All of these sound really good.  There is a sheet on the table for you to sign-up.  You need to tell us yes or no if you are coming. If yes which entrée you would like. Please initial your entry.  And please only sign-up for yourself.  Not your dear friends. Guests are welcome. The cost is $24.  At the end of the list write their names and their choice of entrée.

I’m taking an informal poll.  We seem to be finishing with putting before 10:45. Would you like to see the starting time for our lunches moved ahead by half an hour?  Doors open at 11 instead of 11:30?

Last week someone left a white sweater in the models’ changing room.  Karen Stott is taking it to the lost and found at HOA1 if no one claims it today.

Our collection of Labels for Education is down this year.  Maybe because they don’t seem to be on as many products.  But if you have any, please bring them to putters next week and put them in the yellow container.  Raye Cobb will taking them up to San Manual so the school can get them processed before Christmas vacation.

Jean Krause has been our publicity person for the last two years, writing all those wonderful articles for the papers.  Now she has decided it is time to pass the pen to someone else.  In January, at our annual meeting, we’ll be choosing new assignments.  Think about choosing publicity as your new committee.

For those of you who have not yet heard, our dues will go up to $72 next year.  The main reason for this is the continued increased cost of the holiday luncheon. The cost this year is $24.  Last year the cost was $23 and the year before that $22.

Reminder for the day: Many of you are getting rid of your land lines and going with a cellphone only.  When you do this don’t forget to let Sandy Strack know so she can update your information on the roster.

Here are the results for putting last Monday November 19:

# of Putters:       39

# of guests:        2

Holes in one:      31

Good morning, Ladies.  Welcome to another beautiful day of putting in SaddleBrooke. Yesterday was the 100thanniversary of the armistice ending World War I.  We remember with thanks all the brave men and women who served in that was. And all those who have served their country in the armed forces since then.  This includes the spouses and sweethearts who were at home but worried and prayed and tried to encourage their loved ones.  They also served.  Bless them all.

We have a new member today – Colleen Halvorson. She played last week and decided to join.  Introduce yourself and make her welcome.

Do we have any guests today? … Please put a “G” for guest after your name on the score card.

Pat Brothers had emergency gall bladder surgery last week. What a bummer.  Just when she was recovering from her broken ankle.  There is a card on the table for you to sign wishing her a speedy recovery.

Is there anyone else who is under par or in need of our well wishes?

Deb has some winners’ cards.

Today is our November luncheon.  It will be held at the HOA1 dining room.  This is our annual style show with fashions from Soft Surroundings.  Doors open at 11:30.

Our December luncheon is coming up on December 10. This is the luncheon that your dues pay for.  And it is a holiday party.  It is at HOA#1 in the dining room.  Doors open at 11:30 as usual.  There are 3 choices of entrée:  braised all-natural Frenched chicken breast with smoke mushroom demi sauce served with white and wild rice and fresh green beans OR bacon-wrapped smoked pork loin with carmelized peach sauce served with white and wild rice and fresh green beans OR (and this is the vegetarian option) Mediterranean bowtie pesto pasta with olives, red onions, tomatoes, artichokes, with pesto cream.  Dessert for all will be mint chocolate chip ice cream with chocolate sauce and lady fingers.  All of these sound really good.  There is a sheet on the table for you to sign-up.  You need to tell us yes or no if you are coming.  If yes which entrée you would like.  Please initial your entry.  And please only sign-up for yourself.  Not your dear friends.  Guests are welcome.  The cost is $24.  At the end of the list put their name and their choice of entrée.

I have some news from last week’s board meeting.  Our dues will go up to $72 next year.  The main reason for this is the continued increased cost of the holiday luncheon.  The cost this year is $24.  Last year the cost was $23 and the year before that $22.

Reminder for the day: I didn’t expect it to get so cold so soon.  Now that most of us are wearing long pants, I want to remind you the golf course dress code does not allow jeans, sweatpants, or leggings.

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

Do we have any guests today? … Please put a “G” for guest after your name on the score card.

Is there anyone else who is under par or in need of our well wishes?

Deb has some winners’ cards.

There seems to be some confusion about winnings on your HOA2 golf account.  There are two ways to get money from Putters.  The first is by making  4 or more holes-in-one in a single round or by making the money hole.  These are the winners that I announce every week when I give the stats for the previous week.  These are the winnings that are on your golf account.  At the end of the month Deb writes a check to the golf course for our greens fees.  With the check she gives them the names of the winners for the month.  After our luncheon where I announce your name again and Deb gives you a card that looks like this, this is when you can go to the pro shop or the restaurants and use your money.

The other way of getting money from Putters is a gift card from HOA1.  You get one of these when you complete your committee assignment or you win the birthday drawing or the door prize drawing.  These are good at HOA1 for the restaurants or the pro shop.  They do not expire.

Any questions?

Our November luncheon will be held on the 12th . The menu will be Beef brisket with Bordelaise sauce, cheddar mashed potatoes, sautéed green beans, rolls and butter Dessert will be NY cheesecake with strawberry sauce.  Doors open at our new winter start time of 11:30.  The cost is $18.

This luncheon is special.  It is annual our style show with fashions from Soft Surroundings.  Invite your friends.  We want to have lots of people so we can be in the dining room.

The deadline for getting your checks in the black box is next Monday November 5th.

Cathy Scott is here to talk about our December holiday luncheon.

(We also have the December luncheon to talk about.  This is the luncheon that your dues pay for.  And it is a holiday party.  It is at HOA#1 in the dining room.  Doors open at 11:30 as usual.  There are 3 choices of entrée:  braised all-natural Frenched chicken breast with smoke mushroom demi sauce served with white and wild rice and fresh green beans OR bacon-wrapped smoked pork loin with carmelized peach sauce served with white and wild rice and fresh green beans OR (and this is the vegetarian option) Mediterranean bowtie pesto pasta with olives, red onions, tomatoes, artichokes, with pesto cream.  Dessert for all will be mint chocolate chip ice cream with chocolate sauce and lady fingers.  All of these sound really good.  There is a sheet on the table for you to sign-up.  You need to tell us yes or no if you are coming.  If yes which entrée you would like.  Please initial your entry.  And please only sign-up for yourself.  Not your dear friends.)

Reminder for the day:  Remember to wear your nametag.  It doesn’t have to be a special Putters nametag.  Your HOA nametag or one from your previous life will do just fine.

Good morning, Ladies.  Happy Halloween.  You all look so festive in your Halloween garb.

Do you remember how we somehow lost our cart for the setup and takedown crews?  The replacement was too small.  So now we have a larger one.  To make sure there is no doubt about to whom it belongs, I asked Pat Arruda, Jan’s husband to paint it for us.  And here it is shocking pink.  Or rather should I say – Putters Pink.  Thank you, Pat!

Do we have any guests today? … Please put a “G” for guest after your name on the score card.

Is there anyone else who is under par or in need of our well wishes?

Deb has some winners’ cards

At our October luncheon we elected the new board for 2019. They are Pam Smith – president, EJ Snearly – vice-president, Robbie Herrera – secretary, Deb Adinolfi – treasurer, Pat Storey – statistician and webmaster, Sandy Strack – membership co-ordinator, Jeannie Hepner – special events co-ordinator, Donna Vargas and Geri Grant event advisors, Ann Cristofani, Jan Arruda, and Lorna Kitchen – members-at-large.  Congratulations, Ladies!  And thank you for accepting these responsibilities.

Putter Partners last Thursday was a smashing success. Thank you to Jean Kraus, Faith Holt, Kandi Connor, and Robbie Herrera.  It will live in Putter history as the day the sprinklers went off. Thanks to quick thinking by our members of putting our safety cones over the sprinklers we were able to finish.

Our November luncheon will be held on the 12th . The menu will be Beef brisket with Bordelaise sauce, cheddar mashed potatoes, sautéed green beans, rolls and butter Dessert will be NY cheesecake with strawberry sauce.  Doors open at our new winter start time of 11:30.  The cost is $18.

Reminder for the day:  It is very important that you remember the number you draw from the chip starter.  They work very hard to make sure the teams are even and have at least 3 members.  If you forget your number and go to a different hole than the one you were assigned, one team may end up with only 2.  Our rules say 3 on a team is the minimum.

Now the winners’ cards.

This is our last day of putting.  The course closure for overseeding begins October 1. No putting that day.

Reminder for the day:  Last week I left my water bottle in my golf cart.  The good thing was I didn’t have to remember to move it at each hole.  The bad thing was my tongue was really hanging out by the time we finished.  I drank the whole bottle on my way home. DON’T FORGET YOUR WATER

Do we have any guests today? … Please put a “G” for guest after your name on the score card.

On Tuesday Kathy Birkbigler will have her surgery. Keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

Dar Pitman has been visiting her son.  She caught a couple of big salmon and hurt her arm. She won’t be able to putt today. There is a card for her on the table. She has a ticket for today’s luncheon and won’t be able to come.  If you would like to go in her place, she would like to sell it.  Let Deb or me know if you are interested.

Is there anyone else who is under par or in need of our well wishes?

Deb has some committee cards to hand out this morning. These are for assignments completed in July and before.   The August awards will be presented at the luncheon today.

Now the winners’ cards.

Our September luncheon is today at HOA1.  The doors open at 10:30.

The course closure for overseeding begins October 1. No putting that day. Putting will start again on October 22.  This presents a logisitical challenge for getting your check in for the October luncheon and the Putter Partner event.

The October luncheon is on the 8that HOA1 at the Roadrunner Grill Patio.  The doors open at 11:30.  This is the new winter start time.  Today it is still 10:30.  The menu will be hamburgers and buns, lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles, American and Swiss cheese, ketchup, mayonnaise, and mustard, cole slaw, and potato salad. There will be assorted cookies for dessert.  Now this is important.  The last day to have your checks in the black box in the pro shop is SUNDAY September 30 by 2pm.  The pro shop is closed on the 1stand we won’t be putting.

Even though we are not putting the day of the luncheon, you will want to be there to hear the announcement of the candidates for next year’s board.

The planning for the Putter Partners event is just getting under way so I don’t have any details for you except that it will be on Thursday October 25 and that it will be in the afternoon with dinner following. More details will be available next week.  When you put your check in for the event, you can put it in the black box in the pro shop until Sunday, September 30that 2pm.  After that you will need to deposit your checks at Jeannie Hepner’s – 37578 S Hillside Dr by Thursday October 11.

Reminder for the day:   You remember Pat Miller’s fall.  One of the contributing factors may have been her shoes.  She was wearing a wedge type of sandal.  Not the best for the green and not very good at all considering the hill we have.

September 3, 2018   

Good morning, Ladies.  Happy Labor Day as we honor the hard working men and women of our country.  This day used to mean the end of summer and back to school.  Now it is  welcome to another beautiful day of putting in SaddleBrooke.

Do we have any guests today? … Please put a “G” for guest after your name on the score card.

Last week Pat Miller fainted during putting. Thanks to those who helped her, especially Linda Edwards and Cathy Scott.  Sandy Strack called 911 from the Mesquite.  The EMTs started an IV and took her to the ER.  She stayed overnight in the hospital and came home Tuesday afternoon.  She broke a bone in her hand when she fell.  It is swollen but doesn’t require a cast.  Her husband says she is improving.

There is a card for her on the table.  If you would sign to wish her a quick recovery.

Kathy Davis had unexpected surgery last week.  There is a card for her as well.

Jan Arruda took a spill over the weekend and broke her shoulder in 2 places.  She will be in a sling for 6 weeks.  There is a card for her also.

Is there anyone else who is under par or in need of our well wishes?

Deb has some committee cards to hand out this morning. These are for assignments completed in July and before.

Now the winners’ cards.

Our September luncheon is on the 10that HOA1. The doors open at 10:30.  The menu will be rolls and butter, chicken, bacon, and mushroom crepes with Bechamel  sauce and a side salad with ranch and raspberry vinaigrette dressings.  Dessert will be chocolate layer cake with white buttercream frosting.  The cost is $18.  Checks need to be in the black box no later than 2pm today.  If the flag is in the box, sorry you have missed the cut off.

The course closure for overseeding begins October 3. Putting will start again on October 22. This presents a logisitical challenge for getting your check in for the October luncheon and the Putter Partner event.

Reminder for the day:  You know what I am going to say, especially those of you who were here last Monday.  WATER WATER WATER!  Show me your water.  If you didn’t bring any, there is a machine with cups at the end of the patio.  And a hat wouldn’t hurt either.

Also – when Pat fell last week, she couldn’t remember her address or phone number.  It would be a good idea to put your name and address on your putter, not only to identify it as yours, but also to identify you and your address.  Put your phone number on it too.  The EMTs ask those questions.

Here are the results for putting last week on August 27:

# of Putters:       36 started,  30 finished (medical problem on green so 6 putters did not complete the course)

# of guests:        0

Holes in one:      35

4 holes-in-one:  Pat Wells

5 holes-in-one:   No One

Money hole #9:    Maria Miller and Pat wells

Good morning, Ladies.  Welcome to another beautiful day of putting in SaddleBrooke hopefully not so hot.

Last week another new member joined putters – Susan Schweitzer.   Welcome.

Do we have any guests today? … Please put a “G” for guest after your name on the score card.

Is there anyone who is under par or in need of our well wishes?

Deb still has some committee cards to hand out this morning. These are for assignments completed in June and before.   Now the winners’ cards.

The July cards will be awarded at the luncheon this afternoon.

Last week Marijo Lewis, Linda Edwards, and Pam Smith delivered a check for $800 to the San Manual-Mammoth School District.   They alsodeliveredas well $13 in coins, 25 dry erase markers, 8 pairs of scissors, ink pens, 10 reams of copy paper, 2 boxes of paper clips, 20 packages of sticky notes, 4 boxes of crayons, 40 pencils, 6 glue sticks, 1 box of push pins, 6 dry board erasers, 4 bags of teaching aids, and a bag of children’s books..  Plus 250 box tops for education which are worth 10 cents each to the school district when they purchase from the Box Tops for Education program.  Thank you for your generosity.   Great job, Ladies!  .

Our August luncheon is today at HOA1.  The doors open at 10:30.

The MountainView golf course over seeding will begin October 1.    Regular putting will resume Oct 22 at 9:30 the new Fall time.    Even though we will not be putting, we will have our regular monthly luncheon on October 8.

Reminder for the day:   The nominating committee is still seeking a candidate for vice president. If you don’t want the entire responsibility, ask a friend to be your co-vice president and the following year co-president.  You know that Putters is dependent on its board members and officers to guide the organization.  Is this your turn to step up?

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

We have 3 new members – Robbie Herrera and Kandi Connor from 2 weeks ago and LeAnn Berg last week.  Today we have another new member – Susan Schweitzer.   Welcome.

Do we have any guests today? … Please put a “G” for guest after your name on the score card.  Molly Scott

Is there anyone who is under par or in need of our well wishes?

Deb has some committee cards to hand out this morning. These are for assignments completed in June and before.   Now the winners’ cards.

The July cards will be awarded at the luncheon next week.

Congratulations, Ladies!  This morning Marijo Lewis, Linda Edwards, and Pam Smith are delivering a check for $800 to the San Manual-Mammoth School District.  As well as … boxes of supplies.  Thank you for your generosity.   Great job, Ladies!  Give yourselves a hand.

Our August luncheon will be next Monday on the 13th. The menu is pulled pork sandwiches with BBQ sauce.  Coleslaw on the side and potato salad.  Dessert will be a brownie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.  The doors open at 10:30. The cost for lunch is $18.  The deadline for getting your checks in the black box is TODAY no later than 2 p.m.  If there is a flag in the box you have missed the cutoff.

The MountainView golf course over seeding will begin October 1.  For 3 weeks we will not be able to putt.  But we will have our regular monthly luncheon on October 8.  We will be able to putt again on October 22.  This is different from what our pink 2018 schedule indicates.

Reminder for the day:   This seems a silly reminder on a day like this without a cloud in the sky BUT… In case of rain, check the website to see if we are putting.  Just because it is raining at your house doesn’t mean it is raining here.

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

Last week, two ladies joined our group – Robbie Herrera and Kandi Connor.  Today LeAnn Berg joined us.  Welcome.

Do we have any guests today?

Is there anyone who is under par or in need of our well wishes?

Deb has some committee cards to hand out this morning. These are for assignments completed in June.   Now the winners’ cards.

There has been a change in the proposed slate of officers for next year.  The nominating committee still needs to fill the position of secretary. We also need a co-president.  If you have thought about being president but didn’t want all the responsibility on your shoulders, being a co-president is a way to contribute to Putters while sharing the duties.  Think about it.

Today is the last day to contribute to the Mammoth-San Manual school supplies.  So far we have collected $742.  That’s great! Next Monday Marijo Lewis and Linda Edwards will be taking a check and the supplies to the teachers.

Our August luncheon will be on August 13.  The menu is pulled pork sandwiches with BBQ sauce. Coleslaw on the side and potato salad. Dessert will be a brownie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.  The doors open at 10:30. The cost for lunch is $18.  The deadline for getting your checks in the black box is next Monday, August 7 no later than 2 p.m.

The MountainView golf course over seeding will begin October 1.  We will be able to putt again on October 22.  This is different from what we had expected when we set up our 2018 schedule. The Putter Partner event will take place on Wednesday October 24 instead of the 16th.

Good morning, Ladies.  Welcome to another hot, beautiful day of putting in SaddleBrooke.  Gay is in Utah getting her annual dose of Shakespeare and Pam is in California taking care of her grandson so his parents can move in to their new house.

New members?

Guests?

Is there anyone who is under par or in need of our well wishes?  Any update on Pat Brothers?

Deb has some committee cards to hand out this morning.  These are for assignments completed in June. ..

Now the winners cards.

We will be collecting supplies and money for the San Manual school district until the end of July.  At the end of June we had over $500.  That’s great!  But we know the teachers have lots of needs.  Without our help the teachers use their own money to buy these items.  They especially want reams of colored paper, dry erase markers and dry marker erasers, and highlighters.

Our August luncheon will be on August 13.  The menu is pulled pork sandwiches with BBQ sauce.  Coleslaw on the side and potato salad.  Dessert will be a brownie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.  The doors open at 10:30. The cost for lunch is $18.  The deadline for getting your checks in the black box is Monday, August 7 no later than 2 p.m.

The reminder for the day:         I know it is hot but proper golf attire as determined by the MountainView Golf authorities is required on the putting green.  This means no tank tops.  Most of your shoulder must be covered.

Here are the results for putting on July 16

Good morning, Ladies.  Welcome to another hot, beautiful day of putting in SaddleBrooke. I’m sorry about last week, but I am amazed that so many of you read your email or checked the Putters website so early in the morning.

We have some guests today  ….. Debbie Grafmiller, Robbie Herrera, and Kandi Connor.   Welcome. Please write a “G” before or after your name on the scorecard.

Does anyone have an update on Pat Brothers?

Is there anyone else who is under par or in need of our well wishes?

Deb has some committee cards to hand out this morning. These are for assignments completed in June.   Now the winners cards.

Those of you who have money hole or 4 or more holes-in-one winnings, remember to tell your server at the restaurants that the money is on your GOLF account.

The nominating committee has found candidates for all of the positions on next years Board except for secretary.  You all have probably taken notes and written minutes at some point in your lives.  So it’s not something new.  If you would like to help guide Putters for the next year and join a very nice, friendly group contact Vicki Strief, Sandy Suwyn, or me to volunteer.

We will be collecting supplies and money for the San Manual school district until the end of July.  At the end of June we had over $500.  That’s great!  But we know the teachers have lots of needs.  I don’t think it’s right that they use their own money to buy these items. They especially want reams of colored paper, dry erase markers and dry marker erasers, and highlighters.

Our August luncheon will be on August 13.  The menu is pulled pork sandwiches with BBQ sauce. Coleslaw on the side and potato salad. Dessert will be a brownie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.  The size of which is not stipulated.  The doors open at 10:30.  The cost for lunch is $18.  The deadline for getting your checks in the black box is Monday, August 7 no later than 2 p.m.

The reminder for the day:      Sometimes it can be a little tricky getting back to the side of the green after putting your ball in the hole.  Look around so you don’t step into someone’s line of play.

July 9, 2018 – No putting today due to maintenance on the green.

 

July 2, 2018       

Good morning, Ladies.  Welcome to another beautiful day of putting in SaddleBrooke as we begin the celebration of our nation’s birth.  You are definitely in the spirit with your red, white, and blue.

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

Pat Brothers took a fall at the dog park and broke several bones.  There is a card for her on the table for you to sign wishing her a speedy recovery.

Does anyone know of anyone else who is under par or in need of our well wishes?

Deb has some committee cards to hand out this morning. These are for assignments completed in May.

Those of you who have won winnings cards, remember to tell your server at the restaurants that the money is on your GOLF account.

Many of you are aware that MountainView golf course will be closed from July 9 through July 15.  However, we will be able to putt on July 9 at our regular time of 8:30.

Linda Edwards is here to talk about school supplies…

We will be collecting supplies and money for the San Manual school district until the end of July.  At the end of May we had $468.  That’s great!  But we know the teachers have lots of needs.  I don’t think it’s right that they use their own money to buy these items.  They especially want reams of colored paper, dry erase markers and dry marker erasers, and highlighters.

Our July luncheon is next Monday on July 9 at HOA1. The doors open at 10:30.
The menu will be sugar cane shrimp skewer salad on a bed of mixed greens.  It includes avocado, fresh tomato, grilled red onion, and grilled jicama.  There will be ranch and herb vinaigrette dressings on the tables.  Individual apple cobblers with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream for dessert.  The cost is $18.  Checks are due in the black box in the pro shop TODAY no later than 2pm. If there is a flag in the box saying the cutoff time has passed, the checks have been collected and the reservation count has been given to HOA1.  Wear your red, white, and blue.

The reminder for the day:    Sometimes, during the summer especially, it is difficult for the chip starters to judge the number of boards to put out.  And sometimes only 2 ladies are assigned to a hole.   As you know,  the minimum on a hole is 3.  So, when you get to your assigned hole,  if there are only 2 of you, split up and find another group.  Or if somehow, there are 5 on a hole, one of you find a group that has only three.  The chip starters do their best but sometimes it doesn’t work out right, especially if a lot of people show up at the last minute.

Here are the results for putting last week, June 25

I am happy to report that our missing cart has been located making it much easier for our set-up and take-down crews.

It is time to begin the search for board members and officers for next year.  We are looking for candidates to serve as secretary and vice president.  The VP is a two- year commitment.  The first year you sort of learn the ropes.  If that is intimidating, there is the option of co-presidents.  Ask a friend to share.  If you are interested, let Sandy Suwyn or Vicki Strief or me or any of the current board members know.

Deb has some committee cards to hand out this morning. These are for assignments completed in May.

Last week Pat Wells learned something interesting and very important about accessing your winnings for money-holes, etc.  If you want to use the money you have earned in the restaurant, you have to tell them it is on your GOLF account.

We are still looking for someone to partner with Sandy Suwyn on the nominating committee.

We will be collecting supplies and money for the San Manual school district until the end of July.  At the end of May we had $468.  That’s great!  But we know the teachers have lots of needs.  I don’t think it’s right that they use their own money to buy these items. They especially want reams of colored paper, dry erase markers and dry marker erasers, and highlighters.

Does anyone know of someone who is under par or in need of our well wishes?  Geri Grant doing better?

We have one old 39er sticker to give out.

Deb has some committee cards to hand out this morning.  If you come to lunch today, there will be a new group.

Sandy Suwyn signed up for the nominating committee. She needs a partner.  But good news!  The job will be much easier than usual.  Several of the current board members have agreed to serve another year. We need someone to be secretary and someone to be vice-president.  And perhaps a member-at-large.  If you are interested in any of these positions, let Sandy or me know.  And please, one of you volunteer to help Sandy.

Linda Edwards is here to talk about school supplies for the San Manual School District.

Each year we try to help the San Manual School District. If you would like to make a donation, there are several ways to do it.  You can write a check for school supplies.  You can put your spare change in the school lunch box.  Or you could bring a ream of paper, dry erase markers, or dry erasers and put them in the box.  In the past we have given pencils, notebooks, etc.  Now SaddleBrooke Outreach supplies those kinds of things for each student.   Whatever you do is appreciated by the teachers.

We had a very nice time with the Ranchettes last Wednesday.  And contrary to what we expected, it was hot but not too hot thanks to a nice breeze. Our lunch was good, especially if you like chocolate cake with chocolate frosting.  And there were lots of prizes.

Our June luncheon is today.  It will be at HOA1.  The doors open at 10:30. We will be presenting our annual donation this year to IMPACT of Southern Arizona.  Barbara McClure, executive director, will be accepting the check.  There are two ladies who made reservations and are not feeling well, Ginnie Schoepf and Mary Ann Cram.  If you would like to go in their place, let me or Deb know.

Our putting event with the SaddleBrooke Ranchettes is coming up on Wednesday.  Those of you who are participating are asked to meet at the front door of the MountainView Clubhouse to carpool at 8:15am.  Please don’t park right in front of the clubhouse but use the lower parking lot so we don’t tie up the prime spots all day.  Mary has six volunteers to drive.  There was a cancellation.  If anyone who doesn’t have a reservation, there is a vacancy.

Our June luncheon is coming up next Monday on June 11. It will be at HOA1.  The doors open at 10:30.

The reminder for the day:    We are getting into the really hot season.  For your protection put on sunscreen, wear a hat, bring water AND drink it!  Also because it is hot we wear lighter clothes.  But remember – no short shorts (really not a problem) and no tank tops. Sleeveless, collarless shirts are okay. However, MOST of your shoulder must be covered.  Also Putters doesn’t make the rules.

Good morning, Ladies.  Welcome to another beautiful day of putting in SaddleBrooke. Today is a holiday – the banks are closed, the mail is not delivered but Happy Memorial Day doesn’t seem like the proper greeting.  Today is the day to give thanks and to honor the sacrifice of those who gave their lives for our country.

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

Thank you to Lorna Kitchen, Ann Hamm, Sandy Cavender, Marilee Jones, and Mary Riermersma for putting together Moonlght Madness.  It was great fun.  I can testify from personal experience that the Red, White, and Blue sangria was very good.  The committee has not yet totaled the scorecards and figured out the winners. They will let you know this afternoon. I know I will not have to stand by the phone waiting for a call.

Our putting event with the SaddleBrooke Ranchettes is coming up on Wednesday, June 6.  Those of you who are participating are asked to meet at the front door of the MountainView Clubhouse to carpool at 8:15am.  Please don’t park right in front of the clubhouse but use the lower parking lot so we don’t tie up the prime spots all day.

Our June luncheon is coming up on June 11.  It will be at HOA1.  The doors open at 10:30. The menu will be Grilled Chicken Citrus Salad with strawberries, Mandarin oranges, walnuts, and onions with feta cheese on the side over a bed of greens.  Ranch and raspberry vinaigrette dressings will be available. Lemon layer cake for dessert.  The cost is $18.  Please have your checks in the black box no later than next Monday June 4 by the end of putting.

BECAUSE as many of you know the MountainView course will be closed June 4 through June 10.  And so will the Pro Shop.  June 4 is next Monday.  However, Matt Hudson told me that we would be able to putt that day.  So instead of taking our equipment back to the pro shop this morning, I will take it home and bring it back next Monday.

And you will have your last chance to deposit your checks here on the patio.

The reminder for the day:    If you are interested in seeing the photos from Moonlight Madness, check out our website at MVLPutters.com.   Maybe not today but soon.  Pat Storey is very good at getting them posted quickly.   Besides the pictures, there is all the information about Putters that you would ever need – the membership, your handicap, committees, the officers, as well as any breaking news.  There is really a lot of good stuff.  There is a password required for access to the membership portion only.  If you have forgotten what it is, ask me or one of the board members.

Good morning, Ladies.  Welcome to another beautiful day of putting in SaddleBrooke. I hope you’ll be able to hear me better with the microphone.

I’d like to introduce our newest member, Dottie Adams. She is a really good putter.  Two weeks ago as a guest, she got a 39!

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

Jo Ann Evans says her surgery went well but it will be some time before she can get back to putting.

Cathy Scott told me there will be a private memorial service for Stef Modos in Santa Barbara sometime in the future.  Nothing is planned for SaddleBrooke.

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

Last week the ladies from Quail Creek were here. We had a very good time.  I’d like to thank the committee – Roberta Wiesnieski, Kim Halper, Becky Lima, Carol Ratza, and Pat Wysocki –  for a great job.

I’d also like to thank the set-up committee – Sandy Bulakowski, Mary Cummins, and Ellen Marano – for putting together a course that had just the right amount of difficulty.   What kind of course did they set up for today?

Now, Deb has some committee cards to hand out.

Marijo Lewis is here to talk about school supplies for the San Manual School District.

Each year we try to help the San Manual School District. If you would like to make a donation, there are several ways to do it.  You can write a check for school supplies.  You can put your spare change in the school lunch box.  Or you could bring a ream of paper, dry erase markers, or dry erasers and put them in the box.  In the past we have given pencils, notebooks, etc.  Now SaddleBrooke Outreach supplies those kinds of things for each student.   Whatever you do is appreciated by the teachers.

The reminder for the day:  I know some of you have difficulty standing on the hill.  When you are trying to find a more comfortable place to stand, be aware of the play around you and try not to get in their way. And if by chance someone is in your way, be kind when asking them to move.

We have an important announcement about winners cards. The software issues have been resolved with HOA2’s Northstar system. Beginning this month winnings for the money hole and for 4 or more holes- in -one will be posted on your homeowner’s account. You may spend them for merchandise in the pro shop or the restaurants. You cannot use them for theater tickets at this time. But they are working on that. You cannot use them for range balls, lessons, or green fees.

You do not have to have signing privileges in order to use the winnings posted to your account. But HOA1 residents please note: You do need an HOA2 card to have your winnings posted.

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.

Our Quail Creek event is coming up on April 16. The menu will be a “Grilled Birdie” – grilled chicken breast, bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion, and avocado spread on a brioche bun served with potato chips and a dill pickle. There will be carrot cupcakes for dessert. The cost will be $20. There will also be a special drink available called “Spring Tonic”. The cost for that is $5. Pat Wysocki has taste tested it and pronounced it “very good”. The doors open at 11:30, lunch served at noon. The deadline to get your checks in the black box is Monday April 2 at 2pm.

The reminder for the day: Leaving the cones and pink warning flags in place after putting has worked well. No one has taken a tumble. The take down committee can easily handle everything. In fact you, don’t even need to pick up the pink starting markers. Thank you.

Now the stats for last week:

# of Putters:       72

# of guests:        1

Holes in one:       104

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.

Now the stats for last week:

# of Putters:       56

# of guests:        2

Holes in one       43

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.

Now the stats for last week:

# of Putters:       76

Good morning, Ladies. Welcome to the New Year for Putters. We have some new members who have joined us. They have been guests but are now members: Pat Brothers, Marilee Jones, Bea Dillehunt, Jeanette Liske, Norma McCabe, Jan Baker, Kat Danner, Karen Bird, Sandy Schoenleber, Annette Moyle, Phyllis Meirhenry, and Sharon Marchione.

Do we have any guests today? ….. Welcome. Remember to 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?

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.

Now the stats for last week:

# of Putters:       65

# of guests:        11

Holes in one:       87

Good morning ladies and welcome on this beautiful morning for putting.

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.

Here are the STATS from our last putting on January 15th:

# of Putters:   59

# of Guests:   5

# Holes-in-One:   30

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 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.

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.

The Black Box is now located in the temporary Pro Shop and your access to the box will be limited to Pro Shop hours. Please redeem any Winnings Cards you might still have as the cards will expire at the end of the month and we are told that December 28th is the real deadline for redeeming them..

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.

And, as a note of interest: There will be no putting on Christmas Day but there will be putting on January 1st, New Year’s Day.

The cost in 2018 for our luncheons is going up to $18. Because we are having the January 8th Luncheon over at HOA#2 in the MVBallroom, we were able to secure the 2017 cost of $17 for this luncheon only. So please have your $17 check in no later than January 1st by 2:00 PM. Lunch being served that day will be: Cup of Tortilla Soup and half sandwich of Ham & Swiss Cheese on a Croissant with chips on the side. Brownie for dessert, normal beverage station and a No Host Bar.

Annual Registration will take place on Friday, January 19th in the Mountainview Ballroom. Arrival time for new members wishing to join or who have not yet received their orientation is 8:30 AM; and the doors will open for returning members at 9:00 AM. Feel free to grab a cup of coffee or hot tea across the hall from the ballroom while waiting. Come prepared to select your job for 2018 and meet your new Board.

Today’s Reminder:  We are once again asking for your help in bringing in the equipment at the end of putting. Only take down these items on your last hole: The flag marker, the bumper if there is one, or the number clipped to the pole. If the next hole is empty, leave it for the takedown crew.

# of Putters:   47

]# of Guests:   0

Good morning ladies…….welcome on the day of our Holiday Luncheon to l this morning’s 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?

Today is our highly anticipated Holiday Luncheon to be held in the Vista’s dining room at HOA#1 and the doors will open at 11:30 for seating. But before taking your seat, please check in at the Registration table as you enter and pick up your meal choice ticket. Also, on your way in you will see a pretty box for monetary donations for the HOA#2 Greens workers. Note that this is separate from the collection taking place for HOA#2 employees……your donation today is only for the employees who work on the golf courses.

The Annual Cookie Collection for the MV and Preserve Golf Course Maintenance Crew will take place this week on Wednesday & Thursday. We have sent you a NewsBlast detailing the address where you can drop off your homemade cookies. There will be a table at the front door to receive your donations. Each crew member will get a mixed selection box they can bring home for their families to enjoy.

The Black Box is now located in the temporary Pro Shop and your access to the box will be limited to Pro Shop hours. Please redeem any Winnings Cards you might still have as the cards will expire at the end of the month and we are told that December 28th is the real deadline for redeeming them..

Good morning ladies…….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:  Does anyone know of any Putter who is under par and in need of our well-wishes?

The Annual Cookie Collection for the MV and Preserve Golf Course Maintenance Crew will take place next week on December 13 & 14, that’s on Wednesday & Thursday. We have sent you a NewsBlast detailing the address where you can drop off those fabulous homemade cookies you make. There will be a table at the front door to receive your donations. Each crew member will get a mixed selection box they can bring home for their families to enjoy.

The Black Box is now located in the temporary Pro Shop and your access to the box will be limited to Pro Shop hours. Please redeem any Winnings Cards you might still have as the cards will expire at the end of the month on December 31st.

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.

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. So, if we have a few of our ladies who like a challenge and have some talents that can be used in making this event a big success, we would like you to tell someone on the Board of your interest so we can get the planning started early!

Next Monday is our Holiday Luncheon and the doors will open at 11:30 for seating. But before taking your seat, please check in at the Registration table up front on the left as you enter and pick up your meal ticket. An FYI for all our new Putters, our Holiday Luncheon is the one time of the year when we dress a little more special for our Luncheon. Whether you dress in holiday colors or wish to show off something new you have for the holiday season, the most important thing is to come and enjoy our big event! Also, there will be a box for monetary donations for the HOA#2 Greens workers at the luncheon. This is separate from the collection taking place for HOA#2 employees. This is only for the employees who work on the golf courses.

Today’s Reminder:  PRINT your name on the score card…..no cursive, please!   Also, be sure to put the total number of your holes-in-One on the card and initial your score card to indicate approval that your score is tallied accurately. Then total the number of holes-in-one for your team at the bottom of the card. If you have a guest with you on the course, Write “GUEST” on the name line only.
