Thanks to Everyone Who Attended the Annual Business Dinner!

We had a great turn-out for our annual business dinner at Skyline Country Club on November 3.   With a view from the third floor out over the valley and the city, we watched  an autumn thunderstorm while we enjoyed good food and the great company of 35 members, sponsors, and our guest speaker, Carleigh Silvers. She spoke about how she got her career started, how life is on the tour and how difficult it is to stay in the game given the expense of it all.  She is becoming a strategic business woman along the way.  This year, we invited our sponsors to join us and were delighted to have Robert Taylor from the PGA Superstore, Jen Candanoza from Van’s, Julie Burdick from The Green Monkey, Janet Baker from Divorce Financial Advisors, and Jacki McCue from Continental Design.

Many thanks to the PGA Superstore for their generous donation of gift cards, Julie Burdick of The Green Monkey for gift cards and discount cards, Van’s for gift cards, and all the board members who worked hard to get two golf-get-aways, ten rounds of golf, restaurant gift cards, gift baskets, jewelry, hair care products, and more!   Congratulations to Barbara Ericks on winning the golf-get-away to the Gold Canyon Golf Resort & Spa, and to JoAnne Dowdy on winning the Sewailo golf-get-away!   

This is always a wonderful event so don’t miss it next year!

Fall Ringer Update

Our first fall ringer took place on October 29 at Dell Urich.  Teri Ditsch won a prize for the best costume with her Minnie Mouse get-up…chased closely by Dawn Jacobs dressed up as Ms. Pussy Cat! 

cat%20and%20mouse.jpg
It was a beautiful fall day, albeit a tad warm and cart-path-only.  But we expect the next ringer in the series to bring not only full course access but cooler weather.  If you missed the first one, you can still get in on the ringer series if you sign up and play the second and third ringers.  Click here to sign up today!

Holiday Celebration Coming Up

The EWGA Old Pueblo Holiday Celebration will be on December 3 at Del Lago.  It’s been a while since we’ve had an event out there so we’re looking forward to it.  There will be competition with prizes for longest drive (men and women), closest to the pin, and more.  Bring a guest and wear your most festive holiday golf garb.  Lunch will follow golf.  Go to this link to sign up!

Holiday Shopping Event

And it wouldn’t be holiday time without Van’s Shopping Night on December 15!  It’s the perfect time to use those Van’s gift cards you’ve been winning all year.  RSVP here.

PGA Superstore Season Kickoff

PGA Superstore is also having their "KICKOFF" event THIS Saturday!!! They are giving away TONS of stuff, ESPN radio will be there to broadcast and they also are catering the event!  Doors open at 9am.  You don't want to miss out on the BEST women's clothing selection in Tucson.

Welcome Your New Board

Well, it looks a lot like last year’s board!  Kathy Chavez was officially elected to fill the role she stepped into last year when our elected finance director resigned.  JoAnne Dowdy continues her role as member recruitment director, with Theresa Riel remaining as member services director.  Dawn Jacobs will stay on as our communications and marketing director, and Janet West will remain as our secretary.  We welcome Jacki McCue back to the board as events director, replacing the amazing Deb Dillon who is stepping down after two years.  And Liddy West will serve a second year as your president.   It truly “takes a village” – your board, as well as all of you who pitch in to help manage events, gather rounds of golf and other gifts for our special events, and everyone who participates in chapter activities.  Please take a moment at our next get-together to thank those that make it happen!

Looking for more golf?

We try and keep your dance card full with our local EWGA events as well as any national events and invitationals etc.  But there are some of you that are just yearning for more chasing of the ball.  Don't forget to check the AWGA & Southern District websites frequently to participate in any of their events.  It's a great way to meet other gals in the area that golf and hey, you can always invite them to be a member of ours.  

This weekend, some of our members are participating in the AWGA Partners Tournament which will be held at Oro Valley Country Club and is always a fun event.  Last year, Kathie Coil and Dawn Jacobs took the overall low net and were joined by at least 6 other EWGA Tucson teams along with another 25 or so teams from Tucson and Phoenix.

The President's Desk

 
As most of you are aware, our rebranding introduces us as LPGA Women Who Play (LWWP).  Nothing else has changed and you shouldn't see any negative impact from this new collaboration.  There have been a few hiccups along the way as we usually discover with any technology conversions; but they should be smoothed out before long.  Be patient as Headquarters and the local chapters get "our act together".  On the Local Level, we have been busy with competitions.....ringers, Chapter Championship, State Medallion just to name a few.  We have many chapter representatives moving on to the District Semi-Finals of the Championship series in Santa Barbara as we all continue our trek to the National Finals.  We are looking at some different Social venues as the heat builds up and we find ourselves diving into the air conditioning.  Also, the No Pueblemos will be vying for  the National Cup Championship at the Western Regional Qualifier in September with hopes of continuing on to National Cup Championship.  Keep checking in on the website as we continue to transition to our new identity and have a great golf summer where ever your travels take you.
