The Elk Rapids Ladies Golf League season ended on August 30th with a Fun Day scramble themed “Bon Appetit”. Everyone was encouraged to wear their favorite apron for the day. In addition, there were two “chefs”, both long ball hitters, placed on two different holes to drive the ball for anyone wishing to forgo their own shot. These handsome and willing “chefs” were Bryan Taylor and Gene Davis. Wearing oven mitts to drive on one hole and spatula’s to putt on another added further challenges for each team. All the special twists made for a fun and often funny day of golf. Many prizes were given at the luncheon following play. The top organizers of this main event were Char Hansen, Kathy Moody-Breece, Marcia Sumerix, Debbie Taylor, Kathy Keiser, and Dianna Brumer. Thanks go out to all of those gals for helping make the Fun Day a huge success.
The annual banquet was held at the Harbor Pavilion on August 31st with a Mardi Gras theme. A delicious pork loin dinner was catered by our local chef, Jon Heeke, and his staff. Committee chairman, Bev McCamman, and her helpers made the evening a hit for all in attendance. A special thanks goes out to Myrta Keelan who created all the colorful centerpieces. Finally, the main event of the evening was the presentation of all the yearly prizes for golf achievements. Bonnie Gregory and Barbara George announced the winners.
