Hello Putters,

QUAIL CREEK EVENT – APRIL 15

I thought I should take a moment to explain the Quail Creek event in some detail, especially for our new members.  For our newer members, Quail Creek is another Robson community located in Green Valley.  We have been having this event alternating years between Green Valley and Mountainview for a very long time.  

This year we are the hosts and our committee (EJ Snearly, co-chairperson; Kathy Rambur, co-chairperson; JoAnn Evans; Sam Donnatell; Marsh Webster; and Gayle Norona) is doing a great job preparing for this fun event.  Teams will consist of 3 putters from MountainView and 3 putters from Quail Creek.  We looked at everyone’s handicap and have evened the teams out with both high and low handicaps.  This is a fun event, not a competition.  When you arrive you will pick up your name tag which will indicate which hole you will start on and which table you will be assigned to for lunch. Teams will sit together for lunch, which will be at HOA1.  In the name tag there will also be a raffle ticket.  Don’t lose your ticket as there will be door prizes.  Be sure to bring a dollar and sign up for the money hole.   Our dress code for the event will be your pink putter shirts and white pants.  If you don’t have a putter shirt, please wear a pink shirt.  You should plan to check into the registration desk around 8:00 a.m. so we can greet the bus from Pebble Creek when they arrive around 8:45 a.m.

DEADLINE FOR QUAIL CREEK EVENT:  Your check for $30.00 made out to MountainView Ladies Putters is due in the black box on Monday, April 1st by 2:00 p.m. 

So far we have 31 members registered.  We still have 23 slots available.  Please, please, please sign up for this fun event (emphasis on fun) and get your checks in this week.  We want to have a good showing of members when QC arrives.  QC has 54 members coming to join us right now. 

The meal will be roast pork with wild rice and green beans.  If you do not eat meat there is a vegetarian choice of butternut squash and quinoa stuffed mushroom.  Dessert is Crème Brule.  If you need the vegetarian choice please indicate that on your check.

CHANGE OF HOURS WITH THE CHANGE OF SEASONS:

On Monday, April 1st we will begin putting at 8:30 a.m., which will be our hours throughout the summer until October 1st.

WEATHER:

Because there is a possibility we might not putt tomorrow due to rain, please check your email or the MVLP website for status.  I will try to have it out around 7:00 a.m.

 PLEASE DO NOT RESPOND TO THIS EMAIL

NewsBlast – 3/15/2024

Good morning Putters,
 
There has been some confusion about the meals for the Quail Creek event.  I now have clarification of what is available.  The meal is roasted pork.  Only those folks who do not eat pork or have a dietary restriction should order the vegetarian option, which is a butternut squash and quinoa stuffed mushroom.  Our dessert is Creme Brule.
 
The cost of the Quail Creek event is $30.00.  The luncheon will be at HOA#1.  Deadline for checks in the black box is Monday, April 1, 2024 by 2:00 p.m.  Again, if we have more than 54 members signed up, we will have a lottery.  I hope this answers any questions you may have about the event.
 
See you Monday!  Enjoy your weekend (but then, every day is a weekend!)

NewsBlast – 3/8/24

Hello Putters,

EXCITING NEWS!

Today at our MVLP Board meeting, we discussed holding some fun and informative sessions to help you better understand how MVLP functions and the different roles/jobs members have that keep our club running smoothly.  In addition to our returning members and with so many new members, we feel it important for you to understand how our organization works.  This activity will take about 1 ½ hours and we will be taking sign-ups for the next few Mondays.  This will be done in small groups of about 16 members.  We would encourage you to join us.  I remember when I first joined MVLP.  I came to putting and then went home.  I didn’t really understand how the organization worked and it was kind of scary.  This is your chance to better understand your organization and why everyone has a job, as well as getting to know some of your fellow putters better.  We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity.  Dates and times TBD depending on the response we receive.  Did we mention there will be snacks?  Hope to see you at one of these get togethers.

QUAIL CREEK EVENT:

Our first event this year is hosting Quail Creek.  The Committee is working diligently to be sure that this is a fun event.  The date is April 15, and the cost is $30.00.  Deadline for checks made out to:  MountainView Ladies Putters is Monday, April 1, 2024.  We will have 54 putters from MVLP and 54 putters from Quail Creek.  If we receive more checks than space, we will do a lottery.  If Quail Creek doesn’t send the full complement of 54 putters, we will fill in with MVLP members.  The lunch choices will be:  Either Roasted Tenderloin of Pork with glaze and sides or a vegetarian choice of Butternut Squash and Quinoa Stuffed Mushroom.  Dessert will be Crème Brule.  The special drink will be a spring punch at a cost of $6.50.  The luncheon will be in the Vistas Dining Room at HOA#1.

IN PASSING:

Recently two of our members lost their husband/partner.  If you would like to send a card to them, below are the addresses.

Kim Klindtworth – lost her partner Carolyn

38662 S. Sand Crest Drive

Tucson, AZ  85739

Judy Hardy – lost her husband Mike

62617 E. Rangewood Drive

Tucson, AZ  85739

RESPONSES FROM ME:

I check my emails each morning.  If you send something later in the day and especially if it is early evening, I will get back to you the next day.  If what you need from me is very important, please call me directly at 520-818-2199.  Thanks for your consideration and patience.

Dear Putters,
 
I just received word via Patty Stark from Kim Klindtworth that her partner has passed away.  Kim has asked that MVLP send out a request to all of you.  Kim is planning a “Celebration of Life” for tomorrow, Wednesday, February 28, at 4:00 p.m. at the MountainView Bar.  If you are able to attend, it would mean the world to her.  I hope to see as many of you there as possible to support Kim.
 
With deepest sympathy for Kim in this difficult time,

NEWS BLAST – FEBRUARY 24, 2024

Hello Putters,

I didn’t want to take time during the Monday announcements to cover some issues.  Consequently, here is another NewsBlast.  We have a lot of new putters this year and maybe some old timers who need a refresher on course etiquette, so here goes.

PERFUME:

Most of you know that we do not wear perfume.  SaddleBrooke clubs require their members to refrain from wearing perfume.  I loved my perfume, itwas called “Red” and I got lots of compliments on it. However, perfume aromas can be problematic for some of our members (asthma and allergies), so please refrain from wearing perfume when you come to putting. Thank you.

COURSE ETIQUETTE:

  1.  Walking on the course – when you first come out to the course to get to your hole, please do not walk across the course.
  1. Please do not step on your ball to keep it in place, this puts a depression on the course.
  1. When walking to and returning from your putt be mindful of folks who are putting around you, wait until they finish and please do not cross a putting line.  This was especially problematic last week as the course holes were cut very close together.  Unfortunately, we do not have any control over how the holes are cut.
  1. When you finish putting move to one side or the other of the putting lane – do not walk down the putting lane.  This prevents the next putter from beginning and slows the pace of play.

NEXT LUNCHEON:

Our next MVLP luncheon is scheduled on Monday, March 11.  The deadline for getting your check for $20 into the black box is Monday, March 4 by 2:00 p.m.  The lunch will be a croissant sandwich-ham, turkey, bacon, swiss, lettuce, tomato, avocado spread, mustard, mayo, with a dill pickle and chips. There will be a mystery drink and dessert.  Remember if you have special dietary needs, write that in the memo line on your check.

See you on the course Monday.

MONDAY ANNOUNCEMENTS – FEBRUARY 19, 2024

Good morning putters!
It’s another great day in SaddleBrooke and it looks like the weather is
cooperating again.

Pam Smith update: Pam saw the surgeon this past Thursday and she
removed the drain and stitches. Pam is thrilled. She is still on a low fiber
diet for the next six weeks. Pam is getting out and walking several times a
day to rebuild her stamina and hopes to be able to resume Canasta and
Ma-Jong in the next week. Eventually she will be back to putt. We might
have to help a bit and pick up her ball for a while (this is my suggestion).

Carla DeWolf Update: Carla had hip surgery last Monday. I spoke with
her yesterday and she is doing well. She begins physical therapy today.
She is walking well without a walker or a cane. There is a card for her on
the table. Please sign the card.

Do we have any other putters who are under par?

Do we have any guests today?

Course Set-Up Training: Lorna Kitchen and her crew of Putter Angels will
be doing a course set-up training on Wednesday, February 28 at 2:30 p.m.
here at the putting green. There is a sign-up sheet on the check-in table.

A little housekeeping:
Question: Where do I place my ball in relation to the tee pin?
Answer: 6 inches on either side of the pin

Hello Putters,

After our Board meeting on Wednesday, we realized that there were some concerns that needed to be addressed.  So here goes . . .

GUESTS:

Apparently, there is some confusion about guests.  First when you bring a guest, you need to sign in at the Chip Starter table with your name and the name of the guest clearly printed on the sheet provided and deposit $1.00 in the envelope for each guest.  Secondly, on the scorecard you need to put a “G” in the margins next to the guest’s name to indicate to our scorecard keeper that this person is not a regular member.  You may bring the same person twice as a guest.  After that if they are a SaddleBrooke resident, they must join as a regular member.

SIGN-UPS FOR JOBS:

All MVLP members are required to participate in our club.  Each member is required to sign up for a job.  Sandy Valeton will have the sign-up sheet available at putting, lunches, and all events until we have everyone signed up for a responsibility.  

FOUNDER’S LUNCHEON:

Just a reminder to wear your pink putter shirt or any pink shirt if you don’t have one to the luncheon this Monday, February 12.  Doors will open at 11:30 a.m.  The drawing for this luncheon will be a 25/25/50 as we have 91 people signed up for the luncheon.

COURSE SET-UP CLINIC:

Lorna Kitchen has graciously agreed to do a course set-up clinic.  As soon as we have this firmed up, there will be a sign-up sheet for those interested in learning how to set-up our weekly putting course.

Be sure to check your email Monday morning for a possible frost delay.  See you on the course!

MVLP Messages – February 5, 2024 Money Hole____

Welcome to our first Monday of putting for the new year.

Our next luncheon is on February 12, and is our Founder’s
Luncheon. We are asking all members to wear something their

this luncheon and cheer on the yearly winners.

The meal for this event is: Tempura fried orange ginger

Hello Putters,
 
I just wanted to give you an update on Pam Smith.  I went to Oro Valley Hospital yesterday afternoon and had a visit with her.  Pam is doing as well as expected following surgery.  The staff is getting her up to walk and do some minimal exercises throughout the day.  Currently she is on a clear liquid diet and at some point will be transitioned to real food.  She is not sure when she will be released but will let me know.  She told me to say hello to everyone for her and she will miss all of you at the Founder’s luncheon.  Pam has been told that the recovery from surgery will be long.
 
If you would like to send a card to Pam, her address is:  
61834 E. Border Rock Road
Tucson, AZ  85739
Also, we will have a card available on Monday for everyone to sign.
 
I will be checking in the morning to see if we have a frost delay, so check your email after 8:00 a.m.

Good morning Putters,
 
I just received word from Pam Smith that she had emergency surgery yesterday at Oro Valley hospital for removal of a section of twisted bowel.  She tells me that she will be in the hospital for a few more days and that the recovery will take quite a while.  She is in room 311.  I will let you know when she is released from the hospital.

Hello Putters,

Welcome.  We are about to begin our new year on Monday, February 5.  I just wanted to say hello to all our returning members and welcome ALL the new members (there are 30 of you!).  Sandy Strack, our membership chairperson, tells me we now have 133 members!

Things will be hopping this year with lots of planned events and just plain fun on our Monday putting days.  Because we have so many newbies, please be gentle with them as they learn the ropes.  

 IMPORTANT “STUFF”

OUR WEBSITE:  mvlputters.com

The website is a wealth of information.  Check it out.  Under “members” heading you will need a password to access the member list.  This is password protected for your privacy.  Ask a Board member for the password.

NEWSBLASTS:  Those of you who remember me from my last presidency know that I love to write NEWSBLASTS.  So, check your emails each week to see if I have sent any.

Also, NEWSBLASTS will be sent out when we have a frost delay or to remind you of an impending deadline to register for an event or putting your check in the black box for luncheons.

 

THE BLACK BOX:  The “box” is located in the golf pro shop building.  When you enter the front door, turn right, go through the double doors and you will see black boxes mounted on the wall.  Our putter box is clearly marked.  There are also membership applications in the pocket on the front of the box for your convenience.  The deadline for luncheon checks is always 2:00 p.m. of the Monday one week prior to our luncheon.  Checks should be made out to:  MountainView Ladies Putters.  The bank will no longer accept our abbreviation of MVLP on the checks.  If you don’t want to write that out – our treasurer now has a stamp.

LUNCHEONS:  MVLP has a luncheon every month.  Check your pink calendar to see when they are each month.  Your check will be due in the black box one week prior to the luncheon.  If you have a special need for lunch, such as gluten free, please write that on the memo line of your check.  What are we having for lunch?  The menu will be on the website with the cost.  During the Monday message before putting the president will also give the same information. 

The December Holiday Luncheon is paid for as part of your yearly dues.  As we get closer to that time, the committee will have a sign-up sheet for this luncheon.  You must let us know if you are going to attend and sign up for your luncheon item, or that you are not going to attend.  If you do not sign up, you will receive a call from a committee member to check your status for this event.

FOUNDER’S LUNCHEON:  Monday, February 12 – please wear your putter shirt or a pink shirt if you don’t have a putter shirt.

The Founder’s luncheon is always our first luncheon of the year.  We honor our founder Lou Ann Garvin, as well as, all our past presidents.  This year all 17 of the past presidents who are still in our local area will be present.  We hope you will join us.

DEADLINE FOR FOUNDER’S LUNCHEON:  Monday, February 5.  Cost is $20.00.

Lunch is:  Tempura fried orange ginger chicken served with fried rice and broccoli florets. Dessert is Founder’s cake and our signature drink is “In the Pink.”

I am very excited to begin this year and look forward to meeting all our new members and seeing our veterans on the course.

See you Monday!  Let’s Putt!

Hi,
 
Good News, it is warming up next week, however the overnight lows are still questionable for Monday, so check out our website after 8:00, call Mountain View Golf Shop after 7:00, or check your email to see if you have a Newsblast. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for no frost delay!
 
This month has certainly had its changes, and I’m letting you know of one more. Unfortunately, Kim Klindtworth resigned as President, but luckily Jean Kraus volunteered to take her place. Bless you Jean!! We will need to vote on her taking over as President at the January 17th meeting. Please plan to attend, so we can all vote for Jean.
 
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve as your President this past year.

As you know, Donna Vargas has had a rough year, and unfortunately she is resigning from the MVLP Board for health reasons. We all are sending healing thoughts, prayers, and love her way for a much better 2024. We will miss you very much!!
 
Kim Halper has volunteered to take her place, and according to our bylaws we need to elect her to assume this position. So, at our Luncheon on Monday, January 8th, we will vote for Kim to be our Event Advisor. Thank you for volunteering!!
 
Happy New Year,

Hi,

Our menu for October 9th is the Par Three Salad: tuna, chicken, egg salad on bed of greens, with grape tomato and sliced cucumbers.  Please have your $20 check in the Black Box by October 2nd. 

Donna Vargas asked me tell everyone she appreciated so much the card with everyone’s’ signatures on it and to let you know she is walking with a walker and able to enjoy short rides in the car. She still has some time to go before she can putt again, but she is looking forward to seeing putter friends when she is able to come back. 

Annette Moyle finished her chemotherapy infusions on Sept. 29th and the second blood test confirmed no live cancer cells in her body. Yippee!! She still has some side effects from her treatments, but hopefully they will become fewer over time.

Putters is still scheduled to start October 9th at 9:30 a.m.(Winter hours) Plan to be there and the luncheon afterwards. We will be presenting our new slate of Board positions for 2024, updating putters’ health from cards we sent last month, and talking about our first putting since April! 

Happy October,

Patty

Thank you, Roberta, for doing an outstanding job of sending out the Newsblast while I was gone! Just a quick reminder to let you know what’s for lunch on September 11th. It is taco salad with ground beef, mixed salad greens, black bean Pico de Gallo, mixed cheddar and Jack cheese, pickled onions, cilantro lime vinaigrette, tortilla strips. Please note that your check for $20 is due Sept. 4th in the Black Box. Our program is going to be great as the Hula Dancers will be preforming!

Enjoy the Monsoons and have a wonderful week.

Well, it’s me again.  With good news and another plea (or two)

First off, we are so close to our goal for the Teachers Fund!   Puleeze…go by the black box or if you are out of town, grab your check book and just contribute just a teeny bit more so we can make our goal.  Marilyn received a number of checks sent to her via the mail, and for that, we really really really really thank you!
 
BUT…just a wee tad more and we will meet our goal of $2,000. I have met with the Principal of the Mammoth/San Manuel school district when I was your Prez (and not a has been, like now), and she is so grateful for the help we are able to provide to this really poor district, so the kids have extra stuff.  Let’s knock her socks off and show her that, even though our kids are long out of school, we still care about the education of the next generation.  Seriously, just a little more will do it..kinda like Brylcream…a little dab will do us.
 
Next plea. This one’s not as easy as whipping out your check book or driving up the the black box.  We are still two people short for your board of directors. And I do mean YOUR board! We need a VP, and we need a Member at Large. That position is responsible for being sure everyone has an assignment for the club. The previous occupant of that position will certainly help you, and not let you wonder  “what the heck am I supposed to do?”  We really can’t expect  the new board to just absorb the duties of those two positions, it doesn’t work like that.  We need you to volunteer to take on these duties so we can continue to function as smoothly as possible.  
 
Ok, I’m climbing off my soap box for now.

Hi,

I attended an update meeting on Tuesday for Mountain View Golf Course (MVGC). If all goes well and no unexpected hiccups happen in the construction project, they are planning a tentative date to open MVGC holes 10-18 on October 2nd. That means that the Practice Range and the Putting Area would also open. So keep your fingers crossed that everything continues to go smoothly!!

Our next luncheon and program will be August 14th at 11:15 in the Mountain View Ballroom. Our luncheon menu is 1/3 lb beef burger, with lettuce, tomato, onion, Colby Jack Cheese, on a brioche bun. Served with pickle spear and chips. Please have your check for $19 in the black box by August 7th.  Our program is Trivia and Joyce Sutay will be hosting. I’m sure there will be lots of laughter and fun involved!

Updates will be given on Annette and Donna.

We are almost half way to our goal for school supplies, so if you haven’t had a chance to contribute, please donate ASAP. All you snowbirds, we need your help to reach our goal. Please mail your check to Marilyn Ginther at 38116 S Skyline Dr.

Hi,
 
I can’t believe June is almost over, before you know it, we will be happily putting once more. But for now, we need to spend time together socializing and catching up with each other. Our July 10th Luncheon is only a few weeks away and I hope you have put your check for $19 in the black box already.  If not, please do so by July 3rd. The menu is Asian chicken salad, napa cabbage, romaine lettuce, shredded carrots, cucumbers, green onions, purple cabbage, mandarin orange segments, orange ginger sesame dressing, and crispy rice noodles plus a yummy dessert. Our program is from Senior Village and I know you will really enjoy it, so please plan on being there. 
 
I wanted to update you on Donna Vargas. She had a successful surgery on Friday for her compression fracture in her back. Currently she is at TMC for a few days as she recovers and gains her strength back. She has started rehab and will be transferring to a rehab facility soon.
 
Annette is half way through her Chemo treatments and her mammogram came back clear of cancer. Such good news!! She had a port put in to help with infusions, drawing blood and inserting other medications. She has lost 42 pounds and is sleeping a lot in between treatments.
 
Please continue to keep both ladies in your thoughts and prayers.
 
When people ask you your age and you don’t know what to say, just respond I’m eternal like Jean-Claude Van Damme does!
 
See you soon,
Patty

Hi,
For those of you who have been Putters for several years, you probably knew Faith Holt. She was a long-time Putter, but had to stop because of increasing issues with dementia. Her husband told us she passed away from debilitating dementia on May 22nd. She was 88 years old and had been married to Dennis for 43 years. There will be no services and Internment will be in the Miramar National Cemetery in San Diego, CA at a later date. If you wish to send a card Dennis Holt’s address is 62496 E. Amberwood Drive, Tucson, AZ 85739.
 
I am looking forward to seeing you June 12th at our Luncheon.
 
Your Prez
 
May 31, 2023
Hi,

 

 
Happy June, those long days of summer are here! I hope you have already signed up for our luncheon on June 12th. We are going to be playing Golf Bingo and our hostesses are Jean Kraus and Kim Klindtworth. It promises to be lots of fun and laughter with all our Putter friends!!
 
The delicious lunch will be a Bogie Hogie with Black Forest Ham, Smoked Turkey, lettuce, tomato, onion, pepperoncini, sun dried tomato and relish wrapped in a Spinach and Herb Wrap. It is served with potato chips and a pickle spear. The cost is $19 and the checks are due Monday, June 5th by 2:00 p.m. in the black box. If you need a special diet, please note on bottom left-hand corner of your check.
 
I am really missing you all and look forward to seeing you soon!
Your lonely Prez!

It is with deep sadness that I tell you of the passing of Eileen (EJ) Sneary’s husband, Richard. After a long illness, he passed away yesterday, May 17th at 2:00 p.m. Eileen and Richard were high school sweethearts and no one could have cared for him any better than Eileen. Our thoughts and prayers are with Eileen and her family.
 
Donations in Richard Sneary’s name can be sent to:

Putters:

Even though we won’t be putting for the next few months, let’s not forget the kids and our annual fund raiser for much needed School Supplies. We are happy to take your donation at the luncheon on May 8th or at the remainder of the summer luncheons. If you “fly away” just mail us a check over the summer. Checks need to be made out in full to Mountainview Ladies Putters or if that is too much to write, leave it blank and the treasurer will rubber stamp your check. Just put the amount $$ in, sign it and write School Supplies in the memo and place in the Black Box or bring to our luncheon. We will be sending a News Blast over the summer to remind you.

Otherwise, checks can be mailed to the treasurer:

School Supplies Short Presentation at 11:50 

Lunch at 12:15 

 

April 26, 2023

Ha! My account was never switched off, so I can send Newsblasts to y’all! And you thought you were rid of me!!!

Anyway, this is intended as a cheerleader speech, to keep all y’all invested in MVLP.  Ooops, I don’t think I can use that acronym anymore!  Mountain View Ladies Putters. (Take that, Bank of the West).  This is going to be a long summer, with no putting to get us outside on Mondays, but you all know that our lunches will continue, right? The board (of which I am still a member, can’t get rid of me that easily) has racked our collective brains to come up with fun and /or enlightening lunch programs.  We will have speakers, games, quiz shows…. but they’ll be no fun without you!  Please plan to attend our monthly luncheons. Doors will open at 11:15, so we can have our program and still leave at a reasonable time.

The dates of each are:            May 8             checks due May 1

                                               June 12            checks due June 5

                                               July 10             checks due July 3

                                               August 14        checks due August 7

                                               September 11 checks due September 4

And then! Hallelujah!!  October 9 AFTER PUTTING!!!!!!!! Woo Hoo!  However, that lunch we will be voting on our new board and we need new blood (say I in my best Dracula accent). Seriously, this organization has been ongoing for 25 years, and we have always had ladies volunteer to help keep us running.  Don’t let us down now! It’s hard to cajole ladies when you aren’t in front of them, but if we have to, we will. Please consider becoming an officer.

Okay, I’m putting my pom-poms down now. See you on May 8th.

Oh, and yah, Patty Stark knows I hijacked the Newsblast, and she’s okay with it.

Cheerleader in Chief, Roberta (Hey, I kinda like that title)

 

April 24, 2023

Good Morning!

Do we have any guests today?

Do we know of any putters who are injured or sick?  Kim is doing okay and Annette is

doing Chemotherapy Infusions for 6 months and taking 8 chemo pills daily.

Marilyn, do you have any cards to pass out?

We are still looking for putters who would like to help our organization by serving

on the Board next year.

Our next luncheon is May 8th and the checks for $19 are due May 1st.  We will have

access to our Black Box as the doors to the restrooms and the pool will stay open

during the 6 months Mountain View is closed. The bank that we use is requesting

that we put Mountain View Ladies Putters on the “pay to” line of the check and will

not except MVLP anymore. So, we purchased a stamp, to take care of the problem.

From now on when you write your check for $19 for lunch, just leave the “pay to”

line blank and we will stamp it. Our menu is Vegetable quiche with zucchini, sun-

dried tomato, asparagus, spinach, and red onions, served with mixed greens,

topped with cucumber, diced tomato, and a balsamic vinaigrette, plus a yummy

dessert.

Doors open at 11:15; Program at 11:30; Lunch served at 12:15.

If you won a March Monthly Award, please bring it back to the May luncheon, so

April winners can get it.

Clarification: If your ball goes out of bounds, place it on the fringe and putt from

there.

Saying for the day:

Chocolate is something you always have an affair with, and we do love our

chocolate!!

Now let’s go putt!

 

April 23, 2023

Good Morning,

Our last day for putting will be tomorrow, Monday, April 24that 8:30. Mountain View Golf course closes for 6 months on May 1st.

Our May Luncheon is on Monday May 8thand checks need to be in the Black Box by May 1st. The cost is $19 and we are asking that you leave the “Pay to” line blank, as we have a stamp saying “Mountain View Ladies Putters”. The bank requires this exact wording instead of MVLP and will not except anything else.

Our speaker for the luncheon is from Desert Life Pharmacy and we are looking forward to seeing you there. New hours for our luncheons will be: Doors Open at 11:15; Program starts at 11:30; Lunch served at 12:15.

See you soon!

I got a text from Annette and she said she is doing so much better. After her Dr. appointment they went to Costco, she walked pushing the cart, as she has done many times in the past. They bought her protein drink and a few other items. Her husband loaded and unloaded the items as Annette can’t lift anything yet. They are both pretty tired and take cat naps at all times of the day. Slowly but surely, she is getting better, yea! So please continue to keep Annette Moyle in your prayers and thoughts.

March 13, 2023

Good Morning, how nice to see everyone on this lovely sunny, warm day!

Do we have any guests today?

I called and talked to Annette yesterday, and she saw her Oncologist,

Surgeon and Liver Doctor last week. At this time, she does not have to

do chemo or radiation treatments. She is on a ton of medication to

guard against infection, and now has all staples. Her Oncologist

recommended she sign up for a Research program at the U of A Cancer

Center. This involves blood work, and her DNA to make sure there is no

other cancer in her body anywhere else. So, she will sign up for that

program.

So far Annette has lost 27 pounds and so she is now drinking

3 Ensures a day to add more protein to her diet. She wants to thanks

everyone for thinking of her, sending cards and calling, she sends her

love to you all. So please continue to keep Annette Moyle in your

prayers and thoughts.

Do we know of any putters who are injured or sick?

Kim, do you have anything?

Marilyn, do you have any cards to pass out?

I need to do just a couple of housekeeping reminders:

Please double check your winnings account at HOA2, as some may have

carried over from last year if you did not spend them all.

Do not respond to the Newsblasts, as I do not check them after I send

one until the next time I need to send one. If you have a question email

me at the address on the back of your calendar.

If you would like the opportunity to volunteer for an office next year,

please let someone on the board know you are interested. Sandy is

looking for someone with technology experience to help her right now.

We have had a problem with people picking up lunches for someone else

at the Luncheons. When you check in, please let them know if you are

picking up a lunch for someone. Thanks so much.

Just a reminder that starting in April our time for putting changes to

8:30.

Today is our March luncheon. The menu is cranberry and chicken

sandwich on a croissant w/ lettuce, Havarti cheese and potato chips,

cocktail is leprechaun surprise; desert is delicious and that is no blarney!

NewsBlast – 3/8/24

Hello Putters,

EXCITING NEWS!

Today at our MVLP Board meeting, we discussed holding some fun and informative sessions to help you better understand how MVLP functions and the different roles/jobs members have that keep our club running smoothly.  In addition to our returning members and with so many new members, we feel it important for you to understand how our organization works.  This activity will take about 1 ½ hours and we will be taking sign-ups for the next few Mondays.  This will be done in small groups of about 16 members.  We would encourage you to join us.  I remember when I first joined MVLP.  I came to putting and then went home.  I didn’t really understand how the organization worked and it was kind of scary.  This is your chance to better understand your organization and why everyone has a job, as well as getting to know some of your fellow putters better.  We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity.  Dates and times TBD depending on the response we receive.  Did we mention there will be snacks?  Hope to see you at one of these get togethers.

QUAIL CREEK EVENT:

Our first event this year is hosting Quail Creek.  The Committee is working diligently to be sure that this is a fun event.  The date is April 15, and the cost is $30.00.  Deadline for checks made out to:  MountainView Ladies Putters is Monday, April 1, 2024.  We will have 54 putters from MVLP and 54 putters from Quail Creek.  If we receive more checks than space, we will do a lottery.  If Quail Creek doesn’t send the full complement of 54 putters, we will fill in with MVLP members.  The lunch choices will be:  Either Roasted Tenderloin of Pork with glaze and sides or a vegetarian choice of Butternut Squash and Quinoa Stuffed Mushroom.  Dessert will be Crème Brule.  The special drink will be a spring punch at a cost of $6.50.  The luncheon will be in the Vistas Dining Room at HOA#1.

IN PASSING:

Recently two of our members lost their husband/partner.  If you would like to send a card to them, below are the addresses.

Kim Klindtworth – lost her partner Carolyn

38662 S. Sand Crest Drive

Tucson, AZ  85739

Judy Hardy – lost her husband Mike

62617 E. Rangewood Drive

Tucson, AZ  85739

RESPONSES FROM ME:

I check my emails each morning.  If you send something later in the day and especially if it is early evening, I will get back to you the next day.  If what you need from me is very important, please call me directly at 520-818-2199.  Thanks for your consideration and patience.

Good Evening Again Putters,

Looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible,

Dear Putters,
 
I just received word via Patty Stark from Kim Klindtworth that her partner has passed away.  Kim has asked that MVLP send out a request to all of you.  Kim is planning a “Celebration of Life” for tomorrow, Wednesday, February 28, at 4:00 p.m. at the MountainView Bar.  If you are able to attend, it would mean the world to her.  I hope to see as many of you there as possible to support Kim.
 
With deepest sympathy for Kim in this difficult time,
Jean Kraus, MVLP President

Good morning putters!  

Do we have any guests today?

Are there any putters under par that we are unaware of?

I hope you all saw my NewsBlast on Saturday.  With so many new members I thought it important to clarify some course etiquette issues.  If you have any questions, please see me after putting.

GIFT CARDS:  Marilyn do we have any gift cards?

SHIRTS & NAME TAGS:  Roxy do we have any shirts and name tags?

NEXT LUNCHEON:

NEWS BLAST – FEBRUARY 24, 2024

Hello Putters,

I didn’t want to take time during the Monday announcements to cover some issues.  Consequently, here is another NewsBlast.  We have a lot of new putters this year and maybe some old timers who need a refresher on course etiquette, so here goes.

PERFUME:

Most of you know that we do not wear perfume.  SaddleBrooke clubs require their members to refrain from wearing perfume.  I loved my perfume, itwas called “Red” and I got lots of compliments on it. However, perfume aromas can be problematic for some of our members (asthma and allergies), so please refrain from wearing perfume when you come to putting. Thank you.

COURSE ETIQUETTE:

  1.  Walking on the course – when you first come out to the course to get to your hole, please do not walk across the course.
  1. Please do not step on your ball to keep it in place, this puts a depression on the course.
  1. When walking to and returning from your putt be mindful of folks who are putting around you, wait until they finish and please do not cross a putting line.  This was especially problematic last week as the course holes were cut very close together.  Unfortunately, we do not have any control over how the holes are cut.
  1. When you finish putting move to one side or the other of the putting lane – do not walk down the putting lane.  This prevents the next putter from beginning and slows the pace of play.

NEXT LUNCHEON:

Our next MVLP luncheon is scheduled on Monday, March 11.  The deadline for getting your check for $20 into the black box is Monday, March 4 by 2:00 p.m.  The lunch will be a croissant sandwich-ham, turkey, bacon, swiss, lettuce, tomato, avocado spread, mustard, mayo, with a dill pickle and chips. There will be a mystery drink and dessert.  Remember if you have special dietary needs, write that in the memo line on your check.

See you on the course Monday.

MONDAY ANNOUNCEMENTS – FEBRUARY 19, 2024

Good morning putters!
It’s another great day in SaddleBrooke and it looks like the weather is
cooperating again.

Pam Smith update: Pam saw the surgeon this past Thursday and she
removed the drain and stitches. Pam is thrilled. She is still on a low fiber
diet for the next six weeks. Pam is getting out and walking several times a
day to rebuild her stamina and hopes to be able to resume Canasta and
Ma-Jong in the next week. Eventually she will be back to putt. We might
have to help a bit and pick up her ball for a while (this is my suggestion).

Carla DeWolf Update: Carla had hip surgery last Monday. I spoke with
her yesterday and she is doing well. She begins physical therapy today.
She is walking well without a walker or a cane. There is a card for her on
the table. Please sign the card.

Do we have any other putters who are under par?

Do we have any guests today?

Course Set-Up Training: Lorna Kitchen and her crew of Putter Angels will
be doing a course set-up training on Wednesday, February 28 at 2:30 p.m.
here at the putting green. There is a sign-up sheet on the check-in table.

NEWSBLAST

February 9, 2024

Hello Putters,

After our Board meeting on Wednesday, we realized that there were some concerns that needed to be addressed.  So here goes . . .

GUESTS:

Apparently, there is some confusion about guests.  First when you bring a guest, you need to sign in at the Chip Starter table with your name and the name of the guest clearly printed on the sheet provided and deposit $1.00 in the envelope for each guest.  Secondly, on the scorecard you need to put a “G” in the margins next to the guest’s name to indicate to our scorecard keeper that this person is not a regular member.  You may bring the same person twice as a guest.  After that if they are a SaddleBrooke resident, they must join as a regular member.

SIGN-UPS FOR JOBS:

All MVLP members are required to participate in our club.  Each member is required to sign up for a job.  Sandy Valeton will have the sign-up sheet available at putting, lunches, and all events until we have everyone signed up for a responsibility.  

FOUNDER’S LUNCHEON:

Just a reminder to wear your pink putter shirt or any pink shirt if you don’t have one to the luncheon this Monday, February 12.  Doors will open at 11:30 a.m.  The drawing for this luncheon will be a 25/25/50 as we have 91 people signed up for the luncheon.

COURSE SET-UP CLINIC:

Lorna Kitchen has graciously agreed to do a course set-up clinic.  As soon as we have this firmed up, there will be a sign-up sheet for those interested in learning how to set-up our weekly putting course.

Be sure to check your email Monday morning for a possible frost delay.  See you on the course!

Hello Putters,
 
I just wanted to give you an update on Pam Smith.  I went to Oro Valley Hospital yesterday afternoon and had a visit with her.  Pam is doing as well as expected following surgery.  The staff is getting her up to walk and do some minimal exercises throughout the day.  Currently she is on a clear liquid diet and at some point will be transitioned to real food.  She is not sure when she will be released but will let me know.  She told me to say hello to everyone for her and she will miss all of you at the Founder’s luncheon.  Pam has been told that the recovery from surgery will be long.
 
If you would like to send a card to Pam, her address is:  
61834 E. Border Rock Road
Tucson, AZ  85739
Also, we will have a card available on Monday for everyone to sign.
 
I will be checking in the morning to see if we have a frost delay, so check your email after 8:00 a.m.

Good morning Putters,
 
I just received word from Pam Smith that she had emergency surgery yesterday at Oro Valley hospital for removal of a section of twisted bowel.  She tells me that she will be in the hospital for a few more days and that the recovery will take quite a while.  She is in room 311.  I will let you know when she is released from the hospital.

Hello Putters,

Welcome.  We are about to begin our new year on Monday, February 5.  I just wanted to say hello to all our returning members and welcome ALL the new members (there are 30 of you!).  Sandy Strack, our membership chairperson, tells me we now have 133 members!

Things will be hopping this year with lots of planned events and just plain fun on our Monday putting days.  Because we have so many newbies, please be gentle with them as they learn the ropes.  

 IMPORTANT “STUFF”

OUR WEBSITE:  mvlputters.com

The website is a wealth of information.  Check it out.  Under “members” heading you will need a password to access the member list.  This is password protected for your privacy.  Ask a Board member for the password.

NEWSBLASTS:  Those of you who remember me from my last presidency know that I love to write NEWSBLASTS.  So, check your emails each week to see if I have sent any.

Also, NEWSBLASTS will be sent out when we have a frost delay or to remind you of an impending deadline to register for an event or putting your check in the black box for luncheons.

 

THE BLACK BOX:  The “box” is located in the golf pro shop building.  When you enter the front door, turn right, go through the double doors and you will see black boxes mounted on the wall.  Our putter box is clearly marked.  There are also membership applications in the pocket on the front of the box for your convenience.  The deadline for luncheon checks is always 2:00 p.m. of the Monday one week prior to our luncheon.  Checks should be made out to:  MountainView Ladies Putters.  The bank will no longer accept our abbreviation of MVLP on the checks.  If you don’t want to write that out – our treasurer now has a stamp.

LUNCHEONS:  MVLP has a luncheon every month.  Check your pink calendar to see when they are each month.  Your check will be due in the black box one week prior to the luncheon.  If you have a special need for lunch, such as gluten free, please write that on the memo line of your check.  What are we having for lunch?  The menu will be on the website with the cost.  During the Monday message before putting the president will also give the same information. 

The December Holiday Luncheon is paid for as part of your yearly dues.  As we get closer to that time, the committee will have a sign-up sheet for this luncheon.  You must let us know if you are going to attend and sign up for your luncheon item, or that you are not going to attend.  If you do not sign up, you will receive a call from a committee member to check your status for this event.

FOUNDER’S LUNCHEON:  Monday, February 12 – please wear your putter shirt or a pink shirt if you don’t have a putter shirt.

The Founder’s luncheon is always our first luncheon of the year.  We honor our founder Lou Ann Garvin, as well as, all our past presidents.  This year all 17 of the past presidents who are still in our local area will be present.  We hope you will join us.

DEADLINE FOR FOUNDER’S LUNCHEON:  Monday, February 5.  Cost is $20.00.

Lunch is:  Tempura fried orange ginger chicken served with fried rice and broccoli florets. Dessert is Founder’s cake and our signature drink is “In the Pink.”

I am very excited to begin this year and look forward to meeting all our new members and seeing our veterans on the course.

See you Monday!  Let’s Putt!

Hi,
 
Good News, it is warming up next week, however the overnight lows are still questionable for Monday, so check out our website after 8:00, call Mountain View Golf Shop after 7:00, or check your email to see if you have a Newsblast. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for no frost delay!
 
This month has certainly had its changes, and I’m letting you know of one more. Unfortunately, Kim Klindtworth resigned as President, but luckily Jean Kraus volunteered to take her place. Bless you Jean!! We will need to vote on her taking over as President at the January 17th meeting. Please plan to attend, so we can all vote for Jean.
 
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve as your President this past year.

As you know, Donna Vargas has had a rough year, and unfortunately she is resigning from the MVLP Board for health reasons. We all are sending healing thoughts, prayers, and love her way for a much better 2024. We will miss you very much!!
 
Kim Halper has volunteered to take her place, and according to our bylaws we need to elect her to assume this position. So, at our Luncheon on Monday, January 8th, we will vote for Kim to be our Event Advisor. Thank you for volunteering!!
 
Happy New Year,

Pleeeease think about going to the visitation at Quail Creek.  It is their 20th Anniversary and we want to have a good representation from our Putters to help them celebrate.  So far, we have only 13 people signed up! 

 The delicious lunch will be Pecan Crusted Chicken breast, pecans, radish sprouts, avocado, mandarin oranges on a bed of mixed greens served with Honey Dijon dressing, rolls, ice tea, cash bar and a specialty drink. The dessert will be birthday cake and vanilla ice cream.  Please have your check for $40 in the black box by October 27th. If you have dietary restrictions, note it on the bottom left-hand line of your check. Make out your check to “Mountain View Ladies Putters” or if you don’t want to write that out, please leave it blank for the treasurer to stamp it. We have reserved a bus to take us to Quail Creek, arriving at Mountain View at 7:30 on November 8th and departing at 8:00. Putters will receive a water and a snack to enjoy on the trip.

Come on, I know we can do better than 13! It is going to be a fun day and I don’t want you to miss out on it.  So come on down!!

Thanks so much!

Patty

Hi,

Our first day of putting on October 9th was wonderful! We had 56 putters enjoying being together and having lots of fun. The putting green was in great shape and the grass was thick and felt like walking on a carpet.

If you were not able to attend, we have a reminder of an upcoming date to share with you.

Our visitation to Quail Creek is Wednesday, November 8th. The Qual Creek Putters will be celebrating their 20th Anniversary and have planned a very special day for us, complete with prize money and a mystery hole. The delicious lunch will be Pecan Crusted Chicken breast, pecans, radish sprouts, avocado, mandarin oranges on a bed of mixed greens served with Honey Dijon dressing, rolls, ice tea, cash bar and a specialty drink. The dessert will be birthday cake and vanilla ice cream. It promises to be a great day and I know you won’t want to miss it. Please have your check for $40 in the black box by October 27th. If you have dietary restrictions, please note it on the bottom left-hand line of your check. Make out your check to Mountain View Ladies Putters or if you don’t want to write that out, please leave it blank for the treasurer to stamp it. We have reserved a bus to take us to Quail Creek, arriving at Mountain View at 7:30 on November 8th and departing at 8:00. Putters will receive a water and a snack to enjoy on the trip.

Hi,

Our menu for October 9th is the Par Three Salad: tuna, chicken, egg salad on bed of greens, with grape tomato and sliced cucumbers.  Please have your $20 check in the Black Box by October 2nd. 

Donna Vargas asked me tell everyone she appreciated so much the card with everyone’s’ signatures on it and to let you know she is walking with a walker and able to enjoy short rides in the car. She still has some time to go before she can putt again, but she is looking forward to seeing putter friends when she is able to come back. 

Annette Moyle finished her chemotherapy infusions on Sept. 29th and the second blood test confirmed no live cancer cells in her body. Yippee!! She still has some side effects from her treatments, but hopefully they will become fewer over time.

Putters is still scheduled to start October 9th at 9:30 a.m.(Winter hours) Plan to be there and the luncheon afterwards. We will be presenting our new slate of Board positions for 2024, updating putters’ health from cards we sent last month, and talking about our first putting since April! 

Happy October,

Patty

Hi,

Thank you, Roberta, for doing an outstanding job of sending out the Newsblast while I was gone! Just a quick reminder to let you know what’s for lunch on September 11th. It is taco salad with ground beef, mixed salad greens, black bean Pico de Gallo, mixed cheddar and Jack cheese, pickled onions, cilantro lime vinaigrette, tortilla strips. Please note that your check for $20 is due Sept. 4th in the Black Box.

August 19, 2023

Well, it’s me again.  With good news and another plea (or two)

First off, we are so close to our goal for the Teachers Fund!   Puleeze…go by the black box or if you are out of town, grab your check book and just contribute just a teeny bit more so we can make our goal.  Marilyn received a number of checks sent to her via the mail, and for that, we really really really really thank you!
 
BUT…just a wee tad more and we will meet our goal of $2,000. I have met with the Principal of the Mammoth/San Manuel school district when I was your Prez (and not a has been, like now), and she is so grateful for the help we are able to provide to this really poor district, so the kids have extra stuff.  Let’s knock her socks off and show her that, even though our kids are long out of school, we still care about the education of the next generation.  Seriously, just a little more will do it..kinda like Brylcream…a little dab will do us.
 
Next plea. This one’s not as easy as whipping out your check book or driving up the the black box.  We are still two people short for your board of directors. And I do mean YOUR board! We need a VP, and we need a Member at Large. That position is responsible for being sure everyone has an assignment for the club. The previous occupant of that position will certainly help you, and not let you wonder  “what the heck am I supposed to do?”  We really can’t expect  the new board to just absorb the duties of those two positions, it doesn’t work like that.  We need you to volunteer to take on these duties so we can continue to function as smoothly as possible.  
 
Ok, I’m climbing off my soap box for now.

Roberta Wisniewski (But then, you probably knew that, huh?)

Hi,

I attended an update meeting on Tuesday for Mountain View Golf Course (MVGC). If all goes well and no unexpected hiccups happen in the construction project, they are planning a tentative date to open MVGC holes 10-18 on October 2nd. That means that the Practice Range and the Putting Area would also open. So keep your fingers crossed that everything continues to go smoothly!!

Our next luncheon and program will be August 14th at 11:15 in the Mountain View Ballroom. Our luncheon menu is 1/3 lb beef burger, with lettuce, tomato, onion, Colby Jack Cheese, on a brioche bun. Served with pickle spear and chips. Please have your check for $19 in the black box by August 7th.  Our program is Trivia and Joyce Sutay will be hosting. I’m sure there will be lots of laughter and fun involved!

Updates will be given on Annette and Donna.

We are almost half way to our goal for school supplies, so if you haven’t had a chance to contribute, please donate ASAP. All you snowbirds, we need your help to reach our goal. Please mail your check to Marilyn Ginther at 38116 S Skyline Dr.

Hi,
 
I can’t believe June is almost over, before you know it, we will be happily putting once more. But for now, we need to spend time together socializing and catching up with each other. Our July 10th Luncheon is only a few weeks away and I hope you have put your check for $19 in the black box already.  If not, please do so by July 3rd. The menu is Asian chicken salad, napa cabbage, romaine lettuce, shredded carrots, cucumbers, green onions, purple cabbage, mandarin orange segments, orange ginger sesame dressing, and crispy rice noodles plus a yummy dessert. Our program is from Senior Village and I know you will really enjoy it, so please plan on being there. 
 
I wanted to update you on Donna Vargas. She had a successful surgery on Friday for her compression fracture in her back. Currently she is at TMC for a few days as she recovers and gains her strength back. She has started rehab and will be transferring to a rehab facility soon.
 
Annette is half way through her Chemo treatments and her mammogram came back clear of cancer. Such good news!! She had a port put in to help with infusions, drawing blood and inserting other medications. She has lost 42 pounds and is sleeping a lot in between treatments.
 
Please continue to keep both ladies in your thoughts and prayers.
 
When people ask you your age and you don’t know what to say, just respond I’m eternal like Jean-Claude Van Damme does!
 
See you soon,
Patty

Hi,
For those of you who have been Putters for several years, you probably knew Faith Holt. She was a long-time Putter, but had to stop because of increasing issues with dementia. Her husband told us she passed away from debilitating dementia on May 22nd. She was 88 years old and had been married to Dennis for 43 years. There will be no services and Internment will be in the Miramar National Cemetery in San Diego, CA at a later date. If you wish to send a card Dennis Holt’s address is 62496 E. Amberwood Drive, Tucson, AZ 85739.
 
I am looking forward to seeing you June 12th at our Luncheon.
 
Your Prez
 
May 31, 2023
Hi,

 

 
Happy June, those long days of summer are here! I hope you have already signed up for our luncheon on June 12th. We are going to be playing Golf Bingo and our hostesses are Jean Kraus and Kim Klindtworth. It promises to be lots of fun and laughter with all our Putter friends!!
 
The delicious lunch will be a Bogie Hogie with Black Forest Ham, Smoked Turkey, lettuce, tomato, onion, pepperoncini, sun dried tomato and relish wrapped in a Spinach and Herb Wrap. It is served with potato chips and a pickle spear. The cost is $19 and the checks are due Monday, June 5th by 2:00 p.m. in the black box. If you need a special diet, please note on bottom left-hand corner of your check.
 
I am really missing you all and look forward to seeing you soon!
Your lonely Prez!

It is with deep sadness that I tell you of the passing of Eileen (EJ) Sneary’s husband, Richard. After a long illness, he passed away yesterday, May 17th at 2:00 p.m. Eileen and Richard were high school sweethearts and no one could have cared for him any better than Eileen. Our thoughts and prayers are with Eileen and her family.
 
Donations in Richard Sneary’s name can be sent to:

Putters:

Even though we won’t be putting for the next few months, let’s not forget the kids and our annual fund raiser for much needed School Supplies. We are happy to take your donation at the luncheon on May 8th or at the remainder of the summer luncheons. If you “fly away” just mail us a check over the summer. Checks need to be made out in full to Mountainview Ladies Putters or if that is too much to write, leave it blank and the treasurer will rubber stamp your check. Just put the amount $$ in, sign it and write School Supplies in the memo and place in the Black Box or bring to our luncheon. We will be sending a News Blast over the summer to remind you.

Otherwise, checks can be mailed to the treasurer:

Lunch at 12:15 

 

April 26, 2023

Ha! My account was never switched off, so I can send Newsblasts to y’all! And you thought you were rid of me!!!

Anyway, this is intended as a cheerleader speech, to keep all y’all invested in MVLP.  Ooops, I don’t think I can use that acronym anymore!  Mountain View Ladies Putters. (Take that, Bank of the West).  This is going to be a long summer, with no putting to get us outside on Mondays, but you all know that our lunches will continue, right? The board (of which I am still a member, can’t get rid of me that easily) has racked our collective brains to come up with fun and /or enlightening lunch programs.  We will have speakers, games, quiz shows…. but they’ll be no fun without you!  Please plan to attend our monthly luncheons. Doors will open at 11:15, so we can have our program and still leave at a reasonable time.

The dates of each are:            May 8             checks due May 1

                                               June 12            checks due June 5

                                               July 10             checks due July 3

                                               August 14        checks due August 7

                                               September 11 checks due September 4

And then! Hallelujah!!  October 9 AFTER PUTTING!!!!!!!! Woo Hoo!  However, that lunch we will be voting on our new board and we need new blood (say I in my best Dracula accent). Seriously, this organization has been ongoing for 25 years, and we have always had ladies volunteer to help keep us running.  Don’t let us down now! It’s hard to cajole ladies when you aren’t in front of them, but if we have to, we will. Please consider becoming an officer.

Okay, I’m putting my pom-poms down now. See you on May 8th.

Oh, and yah, Patty Stark knows I hijacked the Newsblast, and she’s okay with it.

Cheerleader in Chief, Roberta (Hey, I kinda like that title)

 

April 24, 2023

Good Morning!

Do we have any guests today?

Do we know of any putters who are injured or sick?  Kim is doing okay and Annette is

doing Chemotherapy Infusions for 6 months and taking 8 chemo pills daily.

Marilyn, do you have any cards to pass out?

We are still looking for putters who would like to help our organization by serving

on the Board next year.

Our next luncheon is May 8th and the checks for $19 are due May 1st.  We will have

access to our Black Box as the doors to the restrooms and the pool will stay open

during the 6 months Mountain View is closed. The bank that we use is requesting

that we put Mountain View Ladies Putters on the “pay to” line of the check and will

not except MVLP anymore. So, we purchased a stamp, to take care of the problem.

From now on when you write your check for $19 for lunch, just leave the “pay to”

line blank and we will stamp it. Our menu is Vegetable quiche with zucchini, sun-

dried tomato, asparagus, spinach, and red onions, served with mixed greens,

topped with cucumber, diced tomato, and a balsamic vinaigrette, plus a yummy

dessert.

Doors open at 11:15; Program at 11:30; Lunch served at 12:15.

If you won a March Monthly Award, please bring it back to the May luncheon, so

April winners can get it.

Clarification: If your ball goes out of bounds, place it on the fringe and putt from

there.

Saying for the day:

Chocolate is something you always have an affair with, and we do love our

chocolate!!

Now let’s go putt!

 

April 23, 2023

Good Morning,

Our last day for putting will be tomorrow, Monday, April 24that 8:30. Mountain View Golf course closes for 6 months on May 1st.

Our May Luncheon is on Monday May 8thand checks need to be in the Black Box by May 1st. The cost is $19 and we are asking that you leave the “Pay to” line blank, as we have a stamp saying “Mountain View Ladies Putters”. The bank requires this exact wording instead of MVLP and will not except anything else.

Our speaker for the luncheon is from Desert Life Pharmacy and we are looking forward to seeing you there. New hours for our luncheons will be: Doors Open at 11:15; Program starts at 11:30; Lunch served at 12:15.

See you soon!

I got a text from Annette and she said she is doing so much better. After her Dr. appointment they went to Costco, she walked pushing the cart, as she has done many times in the past. They bought her protein drink and a few other items. Her husband loaded and unloaded the items as Annette can’t lift anything yet. They are both pretty tired and take cat naps at all times of the day. Slowly but surely, she is getting better, yea! So please continue to keep Annette Moyle in your prayers and thoughts.

March 13, 2023

Good Morning, how nice to see everyone on this lovely sunny, warm day!

Do we have any guests today?

I called and talked to Annette yesterday, and she saw her Oncologist,

Surgeon and Liver Doctor last week. At this time, she does not have to

do chemo or radiation treatments. She is on a ton of medication to

guard against infection, and now has all staples. Her Oncologist

recommended she sign up for a Research program at the U of A Cancer

Center. This involves blood work, and her DNA to make sure there is no

other cancer in her body anywhere else. So, she will sign up for that

program.

So far Annette has lost 27 pounds and so she is now drinking

3 Ensures a day to add more protein to her diet. She wants to thanks

everyone for thinking of her, sending cards and calling, she sends her

love to you all. So please continue to keep Annette Moyle in your

prayers and thoughts.

Do we know of any putters who are injured or sick?

Kim, do you have anything?

Marilyn, do you have any cards to pass out?

I need to do just a couple of housekeeping reminders:

Please double check your winnings account at HOA2, as some may have

carried over from last year if you did not spend them all.

Do not respond to the Newsblasts, as I do not check them after I send

one until the next time I need to send one. If you have a question email

me at the address on the back of your calendar.

If you would like the opportunity to volunteer for an office next year,

please let someone on the board know you are interested. Sandy is

looking for someone with technology experience to help her right now.

We have had a problem with people picking up lunches for someone else

at the Luncheons. When you check in, please let them know if you are

picking up a lunch for someone. Thanks so much.

Today is our March luncheon. The menu is cranberry and chicken

sandwich on a croissant w/ lettuce, Havarti cheese and potato chips,

NewsBlast – 3/8/24

Hello Putters,

EXCITING NEWS!

Today at our MVLP Board meeting, we discussed holding some fun and informative sessions to help you better understand how MVLP functions and the different roles/jobs members have that keep our club running smoothly.  In addition to our returning members and with so many new members, we feel it important for you to understand how our organization works.  This activity will take about 1 ½ hours and we will be taking sign-ups for the next few Mondays.  This will be done in small groups of about 16 members.  We would encourage you to join us.  I remember when I first joined MVLP.  I came to putting and then went home.  I didn’t really understand how the organization worked and it was kind of scary.  This is your chance to better understand your organization and why everyone has a job, as well as getting to know some of your fellow putters better.  We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity.  Dates and times TBD depending on the response we receive.  Did we mention there will be snacks?  Hope to see you at one of these get togethers.

QUAIL CREEK EVENT:

Our first event this year is hosting Quail Creek.  The Committee is working diligently to be sure that this is a fun event.  The date is April 15, and the cost is $30.00.  Deadline for checks made out to:  MountainView Ladies Putters is Monday, April 1, 2024.  We will have 54 putters from MVLP and 54 putters from Quail Creek.  If we receive more checks than space, we will do a lottery.  If Quail Creek doesn’t send the full complement of 54 putters, we will fill in with MVLP members.  The lunch choices will be:  Either Roasted Tenderloin of Pork with glaze and sides or a vegetarian choice of Butternut Squash and Quinoa Stuffed Mushroom.  Dessert will be Crème Brule.  The special drink will be a spring punch at a cost of $6.50.  The luncheon will be in the Vistas Dining Room at HOA#1.

IN PASSING:

Recently two of our members lost their husband/partner.  If you would like to send a card to them, below are the addresses.

Kim Klindtworth – lost her partner Carolyn

38662 S. Sand Crest Drive

Tucson, AZ  85739

Judy Hardy – lost her husband Mike

62617 E. Rangewood Drive

Tucson, AZ  85739

RESPONSES FROM ME:

I check my emails each morning.  If you send something later in the day and especially if it is early evening, I will get back to you the next day.  If what you need from me is very important, please call me directly at 520-818-2199.  Thanks for your consideration and patience.

MVLP News Blast – February 27, 2024

Good Evening Again Putters,

Dear Putters,
 
I just received word via Patty Stark from Kim Klindtworth that her partner has passed away.  Kim has asked that MVLP send out a request to all of you.  Kim is planning a “Celebration of Life” for tomorrow, Wednesday, February 28, at 4:00 p.m. at the MountainView Bar.  If you are able to attend, it would mean the world to her.  I hope to see as many of you there as possible to support Kim.
 
With deepest sympathy for Kim in this difficult time,
Jean Kraus, MVLP President

NEWS BLAST – FEBRUARY 24, 2024

Hello Putters,

I didn’t want to take time during the Monday announcements to cover some issues.  Consequently, here is another NewsBlast.  We have a lot of new putters this year and maybe some old timers who need a refresher on course etiquette, so here goes.

PERFUME:

Most of you know that we do not wear perfume.  SaddleBrooke clubs require their members to refrain from wearing perfume.  I loved my perfume, itwas called “Red” and I got lots of compliments on it. However, perfume aromas can be problematic for some of our members (asthma and allergies), so please refrain from wearing perfume when you come to putting. Thank you.

COURSE ETIQUETTE:

  1.  Walking on the course – when you first come out to the course to get to your hole, please do not walk across the course.
  1. Please do not step on your ball to keep it in place, this puts a depression on the course.
  1. When walking to and returning from your putt be mindful of folks who are putting around you, wait until they finish and please do not cross a putting line.  This was especially problematic last week as the course holes were cut very close together.  Unfortunately, we do not have any control over how the holes are cut.
  1. When you finish putting move to one side or the other of the putting lane – do not walk down the putting lane.  This prevents the next putter from beginning and slows the pace of play.

NEXT LUNCHEON:

Our next MVLP luncheon is scheduled on Monday, March 11.  The deadline for getting your check for $20 into the black box is Monday, March 4 by 2:00 p.m.  The lunch will be a croissant sandwich-ham, turkey, bacon, swiss, lettuce, tomato, avocado spread, mustard, mayo, with a dill pickle and chips. There will be a mystery drink and dessert.  Remember if you have special dietary needs, write that in the memo line on your check.

See you on the course Monday.

MONDAY ANNOUNCEMENTS – FEBRUARY 19, 2024

Good morning putters!
It’s another great day in SaddleBrooke and it looks like the weather is
cooperating again.

Pam Smith update: Pam saw the surgeon this past Thursday and she
removed the drain and stitches. Pam is thrilled. She is still on a low fiber
diet for the next six weeks. Pam is getting out and walking several times a
day to rebuild her stamina and hopes to be able to resume Canasta and
Ma-Jong in the next week. Eventually she will be back to putt. We might
have to help a bit and pick up her ball for a while (this is my suggestion).

Carla DeWolf Update: Carla had hip surgery last Monday. I spoke with
her yesterday and she is doing well. She begins physical therapy today.
She is walking well without a walker or a cane. There is a card for her on
the table. Please sign the card.

Do we have any other putters who are under par?

Do we have any guests today?

Course Set-Up Training: Lorna Kitchen and her crew of Putter Angels will
be doing a course set-up training on Wednesday, February 28 at 2:30 p.m.
here at the putting green. There is a sign-up sheet on the check-in table.

NEWSBLAST

February 9, 2024

Hello Putters,

After our Board meeting on Wednesday, we realized that there were some concerns that needed to be addressed.  So here goes . . .

GUESTS:

Apparently, there is some confusion about guests.  First when you bring a guest, you need to sign in at the Chip Starter table with your name and the name of the guest clearly printed on the sheet provided and deposit $1.00 in the envelope for each guest.  Secondly, on the scorecard you need to put a “G” in the margins next to the guest’s name to indicate to our scorecard keeper that this person is not a regular member.  You may bring the same person twice as a guest.  After that if they are a SaddleBrooke resident, they must join as a regular member.

SIGN-UPS FOR JOBS:

All MVLP members are required to participate in our club.  Each member is required to sign up for a job.  Sandy Valeton will have the sign-up sheet available at putting, lunches, and all events until we have everyone signed up for a responsibility.  

FOUNDER’S LUNCHEON:

Just a reminder to wear your pink putter shirt or any pink shirt if you don’t have one to the luncheon this Monday, February 12.  Doors will open at 11:30 a.m.  The drawing for this luncheon will be a 25/25/50 as we have 91 people signed up for the luncheon.

COURSE SET-UP CLINIC:

Lorna Kitchen has graciously agreed to do a course set-up clinic.  As soon as we have this firmed up, there will be a sign-up sheet for those interested in learning how to set-up our weekly putting course.

Be sure to check your email Monday morning for a possible frost delay.  See you on the course!

Hello Putters,
 
I just wanted to give you an update on Pam Smith.  I went to Oro Valley Hospital yesterday afternoon and had a visit with her.  Pam is doing as well as expected following surgery.  The staff is getting her up to walk and do some minimal exercises throughout the day.  Currently she is on a clear liquid diet and at some point will be transitioned to real food.  She is not sure when she will be released but will let me know.  She told me to say hello to everyone for her and she will miss all of you at the Founder’s luncheon.  Pam has been told that the recovery from surgery will be long.
 
If you would like to send a card to Pam, her address is:  
61834 E. Border Rock Road
Tucson, AZ  85739
Also, we will have a card available on Monday for everyone to sign.
 
I will be checking in the morning to see if we have a frost delay, so check your email after 8:00 a.m.

Good morning Putters,
 
I just received word from Pam Smith that she had emergency surgery yesterday at Oro Valley hospital for removal of a section of twisted bowel.  She tells me that she will be in the hospital for a few more days and that the recovery will take quite a while.  She is in room 311.  I will let you know when she is released from the hospital.

Hello Putters,

Welcome.  We are about to begin our new year on Monday, February 5.  I just wanted to say hello to all our returning members and welcome ALL the new members (there are 30 of you!).  Sandy Strack, our membership chairperson, tells me we now have 133 members!

Things will be hopping this year with lots of planned events and just plain fun on our Monday putting days.  Because we have so many newbies, please be gentle with them as they learn the ropes.  

 IMPORTANT “STUFF”

OUR WEBSITE:  mvlputters.com

The website is a wealth of information.  Check it out.  Under “members” heading you will need a password to access the member list.  This is password protected for your privacy.  Ask a Board member for the password.

NEWSBLASTS:  Those of you who remember me from my last presidency know that I love to write NEWSBLASTS.  So, check your emails each week to see if I have sent any.

Also, NEWSBLASTS will be sent out when we have a frost delay or to remind you of an impending deadline to register for an event or putting your check in the black box for luncheons.

 

THE BLACK BOX:  The “box” is located in the golf pro shop building.  When you enter the front door, turn right, go through the double doors and you will see black boxes mounted on the wall.  Our putter box is clearly marked.  There are also membership applications in the pocket on the front of the box for your convenience.  The deadline for luncheon checks is always 2:00 p.m. of the Monday one week prior to our luncheon.  Checks should be made out to:  MountainView Ladies Putters.  The bank will no longer accept our abbreviation of MVLP on the checks.  If you don’t want to write that out – our treasurer now has a stamp.

LUNCHEONS:  MVLP has a luncheon every month.  Check your pink calendar to see when they are each month.  Your check will be due in the black box one week prior to the luncheon.  If you have a special need for lunch, such as gluten free, please write that on the memo line of your check.  What are we having for lunch?  The menu will be on the website with the cost.  During the Monday message before putting the president will also give the same information. 

The December Holiday Luncheon is paid for as part of your yearly dues.  As we get closer to that time, the committee will have a sign-up sheet for this luncheon.  You must let us know if you are going to attend and sign up for your luncheon item, or that you are not going to attend.  If you do not sign up, you will receive a call from a committee member to check your status for this event.

FOUNDER’S LUNCHEON:  Monday, February 12 – please wear your putter shirt or a pink shirt if you don’t have a putter shirt.

The Founder’s luncheon is always our first luncheon of the year.  We honor our founder Lou Ann Garvin, as well as, all our past presidents.  This year all 17 of the past presidents who are still in our local area will be present.  We hope you will join us.

DEADLINE FOR FOUNDER’S LUNCHEON:  Monday, February 5.  Cost is $20.00.

Lunch is:  Tempura fried orange ginger chicken served with fried rice and broccoli florets. Dessert is Founder’s cake and our signature drink is “In the Pink.”

I am very excited to begin this year and look forward to meeting all our new members and seeing our veterans on the course.

See you Monday!  Let’s Putt!

Hi,
 
Good News, it is warming up next week, however the overnight lows are still questionable for Monday, so check out our website after 8:00, call Mountain View Golf Shop after 7:00, or check your email to see if you have a Newsblast. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for no frost delay!
 
This month has certainly had its changes, and I’m letting you know of one more. Unfortunately, Kim Klindtworth resigned as President, but luckily Jean Kraus volunteered to take her place. Bless you Jean!! We will need to vote on her taking over as President at the January 17th meeting. Please plan to attend, so we can all vote for Jean.
 
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve as your President this past year.
Patty Stark

As you know, Donna Vargas has had a rough year, and unfortunately she is resigning from the MVLP Board for health reasons. We all are sending healing thoughts, prayers, and love her way for a much better 2024. We will miss you very much!!
 
Kim Halper has volunteered to take her place, and according to our bylaws we need to elect her to assume this position. So, at our Luncheon on Monday, January 8th, we will vote for Kim to be our Event Advisor. Thank you for volunteering!!
 
Happy New Year,
Patty

Hi,

Our menu for October 9th is the Par Three Salad: tuna, chicken, egg salad on bed of greens, with grape tomato and sliced cucumbers.  Please have your $20 check in the Black Box by October 2nd. 

Donna Vargas asked me tell everyone she appreciated so much the card with everyone’s’ signatures on it and to let you know she is walking with a walker and able to enjoy short rides in the car. She still has some time to go before she can putt again, but she is looking forward to seeing putter friends when she is able to come back. 

Annette Moyle finished her chemotherapy infusions on Sept. 29th and the second blood test confirmed no live cancer cells in her body. Yippee!! She still has some side effects from her treatments, but hopefully they will become fewer over time.

Putters is still scheduled to start October 9th at 9:30 a.m.(Winter hours) Plan to be there and the luncheon afterwards. We will be presenting our new slate of Board positions for 2024, updating putters’ health from cards we sent last month, and talking about our first putting since April!

August 19, 2023

Well, it’s me again.  With good news and another plea (or two)

First off, we are so close to our goal for the Teachers Fund!   Puleeze…go by the black box or if you are out of town, grab your check book and just contribute just a teeny bit more so we can make our goal.  Marilyn received a number of checks sent to her via the mail, and for that, we really really really really thank you!
 
BUT…just a wee tad more and we will meet our goal of $2,000. I have met with the Principal of the Mammoth/San Manuel school district when I was your Prez (and not a has been, like now), and she is so grateful for the help we are able to provide to this really poor district, so the kids have extra stuff.  Let’s knock her socks off and show her that, even though our kids are long out of school, we still care about the education of the next generation.  Seriously, just a little more will do it..kinda like Brylcream…a little dab will do us.
 
Next plea. This one’s not as easy as whipping out your check book or driving up the the black box.  We are still two people short for your board of directors. And I do mean YOUR board! We need a VP, and we need a Member at Large. That position is responsible for being sure everyone has an assignment for the club. The previous occupant of that position will certainly help you, and not let you wonder  “what the heck am I supposed to do?”  We really can’t expect  the new board to just absorb the duties of those two positions, it doesn’t work like that.  We need you to volunteer to take on these duties so we can continue to function as smoothly as possible.  
 
Ok, I’m climbing off my soap box for now.

Roberta Wisniewski (But then, you probably knew that, huh?)

Hi,

I attended an update meeting on Tuesday for Mountain View Golf Course (MVGC). If all goes well and no unexpected hiccups happen in the construction project, they are planning a tentative date to open MVGC holes 10-18 on October 2nd. That means that the Practice Range and the Putting Area would also open. So keep your fingers crossed that everything continues to go smoothly!!

Our next luncheon and program will be August 14th at 11:15 in the Mountain View Ballroom. Our luncheon menu is 1/3 lb beef burger, with lettuce, tomato, onion, Colby Jack Cheese, on a brioche bun. Served with pickle spear and chips. Please have your check for $19 in the black box by August 7th.  Our program is Trivia and Joyce Sutay will be hosting. I’m sure there will be lots of laughter and fun involved!

Updates will be given on Annette and Donna.

We are almost half way to our goal for school supplies, so if you haven’t had a chance to contribute, please donate ASAP. All you snowbirds, we need your help to reach our goal. Please mail your check to Marilyn Ginther at 38116 S Skyline Dr.

Hi,
 
I can’t believe June is almost over, before you know it, we will be happily putting once more. But for now, we need to spend time together socializing and catching up with each other. Our July 10th Luncheon is only a few weeks away and I hope you have put your check for $19 in the black box already.  If not, please do so by July 3rd. The menu is Asian chicken salad, napa cabbage, romaine lettuce, shredded carrots, cucumbers, green onions, purple cabbage, mandarin orange segments, orange ginger sesame dressing, and crispy rice noodles plus a yummy dessert. Our program is from Senior Village and I know you will really enjoy it, so please plan on being there. 
 
I wanted to update you on Donna Vargas. She had a successful surgery on Friday for her compression fracture in her back. Currently she is at TMC for a few days as she recovers and gains her strength back. She has started rehab and will be transferring to a rehab facility soon.
 
Annette is half way through her Chemo treatments and her mammogram came back clear of cancer. Such good news!! She had a port put in to help with infusions, drawing blood and inserting other medications. She has lost 42 pounds and is sleeping a lot in between treatments.
 
Please continue to keep both ladies in your thoughts and prayers.
 
When people ask you your age and you don’t know what to say, just respond I’m eternal like Jean-Claude Van Damme does!
 
See you soon,
Patty

Hi,
For those of you who have been Putters for several years, you probably knew Faith Holt. She was a long-time Putter, but had to stop because of increasing issues with dementia. Her husband told us she passed away from debilitating dementia on May 22nd. She was 88 years old and had been married to Dennis for 43 years. There will be no services and Internment will be in the Miramar National Cemetery in San Diego, CA at a later date. If you wish to send a card Dennis Holt’s address is 62496 E. Amberwood Drive, Tucson, AZ 85739.
 
I am looking forward to seeing you June 12th at our Luncheon.
 
Your Prez

Hi,

 

 
Happy June, those long days of summer are here! I hope you have already signed up for our luncheon on June 12th. We are going to be playing Golf Bingo and our hostesses are Jean Kraus and Kim Klindtworth. It promises to be lots of fun and laughter with all our Putter friends!!
 
The delicious lunch will be a Bogie Hogie with Black Forest Ham, Smoked Turkey, lettuce, tomato, onion, pepperoncini, sun dried tomato and relish wrapped in a Spinach and Herb Wrap. It is served with potato chips and a pickle spear. The cost is $19 and the checks are due Monday, June 5th by 2:00 p.m. in the black box.

I am really missing you all and look forward to seeing you soon!
Your lonely Prez!

It is with deep sadness that I tell you of the passing of Eileen (EJ) Sneary’s husband, Richard. After a long illness, he passed away yesterday, May 17th at 2:00 p.m. Eileen and Richard were high school sweethearts and no one could have cared for him any better than Eileen. Our thoughts and prayers are with Eileen and her family.

Putters:

Even though we won’t be putting for the next few months, let’s not forget the kids and our annual fund raiser for much needed School Supplies. We are happy to take your donation at the luncheon on May 8th or at the remainder of the summer luncheons. If you “fly away” just mail us a check over the summer. Checks need to be made out in full to Mountainview Ladies Putters or if that is too much to write, leave it blank and the treasurer will rubber stamp your check. Just put the amount $$ in, sign it and write School Supplies in the memo and place in the Black Box or bring to our luncheon. We will be sending a News Blast over the summer to remind you.

Otherwise, checks can be mailed to the treasurer:

Lunch at 12:15 

 

April 26, 2023

Ha! My account was never switched off, so I can send Newsblasts to y’all! And you thought you were rid of me!!!

Anyway, this is intended as a cheerleader speech, to keep all y’all invested in MVLP.  Ooops, I don’t think I can use that acronym anymore!  Mountain View Ladies Putters. (Take that, Bank of the West).  This is going to be a long summer, with no putting to get us outside on Mondays, but you all know that our lunches will continue, right? The board (of which I am still a member, can’t get rid of me that easily) has racked our collective brains to come up with fun and /or enlightening lunch programs.  We will have speakers, games, quiz shows…. but they’ll be no fun without you!  Please plan to attend our monthly luncheons. Doors will open at 11:15, so we can have our program and still leave at a reasonable time.

The dates of each are:            May 8             checks due May 1

                                               June 12            checks due June 5

                                               July 10             checks due July 3

                                               August 14        checks due August 7

                                               September 11 checks due September 4

And then! Hallelujah!!  October 9 AFTER PUTTING!!!!!!!! Woo Hoo!  However, that lunch we will be voting on our new board and we need new blood (say I in my best Dracula accent). Seriously, this organization has been ongoing for 25 years, and we have always had ladies volunteer to help keep us running.  Don’t let us down now! It’s hard to cajole ladies when you aren’t in front of them, but if we have to, we will. Please consider becoming an officer.

Okay, I’m putting my pom-poms down now. See you on May 8th.

Oh, and yah, Patty Stark knows I hijacked the Newsblast, and she’s okay with it.

Cheerleader in Chief, Roberta (Hey, I kinda like that title)

 

April 24, 2023

Good Morning!

Do we have any guests today?

Do we know of any putters who are injured or sick?  Kim is doing okay and Annette is

doing Chemotherapy Infusions for 6 months and taking 8 chemo pills daily.

Marilyn, do you have any cards to pass out?

We are still looking for putters who would like to help our organization by serving

on the Board next year.

Our next luncheon is May 8th and the checks for $19 are due May 1st.  We will have

access to our Black Box as the doors to the restrooms and the pool will stay open

during the 6 months Mountain View is closed. The bank that we use is requesting

that we put Mountain View Ladies Putters on the “pay to” line of the check and will

not except MVLP anymore. So, we purchased a stamp, to take care of the problem.

From now on when you write your check for $19 for lunch, just leave the “pay to”

line blank and we will stamp it. Our menu is Vegetable quiche with zucchini, sun-

dried tomato, asparagus, spinach, and red onions, served with mixed greens,

topped with cucumber, diced tomato, and a balsamic vinaigrette, plus a yummy

dessert.

Doors open at 11:15; Program at 11:30; Lunch served at 12:15.

If you won a March Monthly Award, please bring it back to the May luncheon, so

April winners can get it.

Clarification: If your ball goes out of bounds, place it on the fringe and putt from

there.

Saying for the day:

Chocolate is something you always have an affair with, and we do love our

chocolate!!

Now let’s go putt!

 

April 23, 2023

Good Morning,

Our last day for putting will be tomorrow, Monday, April 24that 8:30. Mountain View Golf course closes for 6 months on May 1st.

Our May Luncheon is on Monday May 8thand checks need to be in the Black Box by May 1st. The cost is $19 and we are asking that you leave the “Pay to” line blank, as we have a stamp saying “Mountain View Ladies Putters”. The bank requires this exact wording instead of MVLP and will not except anything else.

Our speaker for the luncheon is from Desert Life Pharmacy and we are looking forward to seeing you there. New hours for our luncheons will be: Doors Open at 11:15; Program starts at 11:30; Lunch served at 12:15.

See you soon!

Hi Putters,
 
We are in need of 5 more putters to play Monday in the Ranchette event here on our green.  At this time, we have more Ranchettes signed up than we do.
 
 
She will take the first 5 that respond.  Deadline is Friday, April 7 at noon.
 
Your check should be made out to MVLP for $25 and deposited in the black box.  On the memo line list Ranchette Event and any dietary restrictions.
 
This is a fun event. Experience does not matter as this is a social event. You will be on a 6 person team with MVL Putters and SB Ranchette putters. Email Joan now!
 
Thanks!

Good Morning!

Do we have any guests today? 

I got a text from Annette and she said she is a bit weak and unsteady at times, but can’t complain, because she is continuing to improve. No results from U of A yet, they said it would be 3 weeks before they heard anything. Her husband said he did not know Annette had so many friends, from all the cards, emails and texts she has received. So please continue to keep Annette Moyle in your prayers and thoughts.

Do we know of any putters who are injured or sick?

Kim do you have anything?

Marilyn do you have any cards to pass out?

If you would like the opportunity to volunteer for an office next year, please let someone on the board know you are interested. Sandy is looking for someone with technology experience to help her right now.

Just a reminder that starting today, April 3rd until September 30th our time for putting is 8:30.  

Our next event is April 17th when the SB Ranchettes come over to putt with us. We can take the first 54 players that sign up, so get your $25 checks in by April 3rd. We will only have one lunch in April which will also be April 17th. It will be Chef Salad, rolls and butter, a yummy dessert and a special $5 spring drink. Please wear pink shirts and white bottoms. MVLP will register at 8:30 and the Ranchettes will register at 9:00. Putting will start at 9:30. We need to be ready to do the Honor Arch with our putters as the Ranchettes arrive, so plan to get registered early.

Good Morning!

We now have 125 members with Vicki Strief rejoining and Kaye Caulkins being a new member, welcome ladies!

Do we have any guests today? 

I got a text from Annette and she said she is doing so much better. After her Dr. appointment they went to Costco, she walked pushing the cart, as she has done many times in the past. They bought her protein drink and a few other items. Her husband loaded and unloaded the items as Annette can’t lift anything yet. They are both pretty tired and take cat naps at all times of the day. Slowly but surely, she is getting better, yea! So please continue to keep Annette Moyle in your prayers and thoughts.

March 13, 2023

Good Morning, how nice to see everyone on this lovely sunny, warm day!

Do we have any guests today?

I called and talked to Annette yesterday, and she saw her Oncologist,

Surgeon and Liver Doctor last week. At this time, she does not have to

do chemo or radiation treatments. She is on a ton of medication to

guard against infection, and now has all staples. Her Oncologist

recommended she sign up for a Research program at the U of A Cancer

Center. This involves blood work, and her DNA to make sure there is no

other cancer in her body anywhere else. So, she will sign up for that

program.

So far Annette has lost 27 pounds and so she is now drinking

3 Ensures a day to add more protein to her diet. She wants to thanks

everyone for thinking of her, sending cards and calling, she sends her

love to you all. So please continue to keep Annette Moyle in your

prayers and thoughts.

Do we know of any putters who are injured or sick?

Kim, do you have anything?

Marilyn, do you have any cards to pass out?

I need to do just a couple of housekeeping reminders:

Please double check your winnings account at HOA2, as some may have

carried over from last year if you did not spend them all.

Do not respond to the Newsblasts, as I do not check them after I send

one until the next time I need to send one. If you have a question email

me at the address on the back of your calendar.

If you would like the opportunity to volunteer for an office next year,

please let someone on the board know you are interested. Sandy is

looking for someone with technology experience to help her right now.

We have had a problem with people picking up lunches for someone else

at the Luncheons. When you check in, please let them know if you are

picking up a lunch for someone. Thanks so much.

Just a reminder that starting in April our time for putting changes to

8:30.

Today is our March luncheon. The menu is cranberry and chicken

sandwich on a croissant w/ lettuce, Havarti cheese and potato chips,

that wisdom Robert Cocke.
