Once again sunshine welcomed the ladies in pink to the annual “In the Pink” 9  hole fun tournament Saturday September 1.  In keeping with the “fun day” theme of the tournament, prizes were awarded for entertaining, as well as skillful aspects of the game.

The ladies got into the spirit of the day by dressing in their modest to most outlandish pink outfits, and carts were decorated with great ingenuity.  Even a bikini was spotted on the course. The senior men volunteers had the envious job of selecting the best dressed lady and cart.  The lady most fashionably dressed was Debbie Manley.  The best dressed cart was almost a toss up for creativity, however Elaine Harwood & Sandi Harwood took the prize.

Eye catching bouquets of pink flowers adorned the banquet tables compliments of Sharon Blower.    The men provided the air to blow up the balloons, decorated tables & Clubhouse, set up the games on the course, and did the scorekeeping.   Many thanks to Lloyd Wilson, Larry Evans,  Keith Simpson and Al Lambe.  Thanks also to the ladies who donated prizes, contributed baking for the early morning coffee, did registration, and contributed in many ways.  It takes many willing hands to put on a successful tournament and all the help was appreciated.

Ina and her staff at Divots Restaurant put on an excellent luncheon, the groundskeepers had the course in great shape, and a good fun day was had by all participants.
