We left bright and early, 7am to be exact, to where? Do you recognize this golf course? well if you don’t you are not the only one. The forty people, no that would be 38, as we knew where we were going, did not guess Copper Point in Invermere. The mimosa were yummy and I think everyone enjoyed their breakfast of fruit and muffins. Kristy got some major bruises on her legs probably the result of pouring the champayne on a moving bus.
Our theme was Chickwagons because of the proximity to Stampede but our wagons were named a little differently. The horn sounded and they were off, the Broncho Babes and the Klondike Kates were in the lead. But when they hit the back stretch The Diamond Lils, Cindy Wakefield, Rose Mary Vandergrift, Kathy Tipman and Deb Temple, crossed the line first with the Calamity Janes , Kristy Hutton, Cheryl Inkster, Marie Kemp and Fran Connors coming in a close second.
The weather cooperated and was pleasantly warm, though we did get a few dark clouds and some wind gusts, but the rain stayed away. Following a very enjoyable, fun round we had a great banquet and distributed the prizes. . There were numerous other winners for a variety of skill and not much skill feats. Thanks to all of you who donated prizes as this added a great deal to the festivities. We also did a raffle draw for some golf and Spa packages which along with the lottery, raised $416.00 which will be topped up to $500.00 and donated to a women’s charity.
We saw a lot of wildlife on the trip and I don’t mean our people. We saw a black bear on the way there, another bear was on hole thirteen and had to be tranquilized as it charged a staff member. In addition we witnessed mountain goats and deer. The trip home was shortened by the entertainement provided by Donna Gray, her guitar and a sing song. It was a great day and a fun time for all.
