Lady Niners’ Season Recap

by Kathy Traci, Lady Niners Publicity Chairperson

In mid-October, The Lady Niners attended their end-of-the- season luncheon at Doc’s in Port Townsend. At the luncheon, Lady Niners’ Captain Barb Burke was presented with a beautiful thank-you gift for her excellent leadership in 2022. Barb thanked Sharon Russell for being Co-Captain and Elaine Girard for her service as Treasurer. Barb also thanked Sharon and Elaine for covering for her during her recent medical procedure and her travels.

The last Niners’ Couples Event in October preceded the End-of-the-Season Niners’ Banquet. At the banquet, it was announced that Barb Burke had agreed to continue as Captain, with Sharon Russell as her Co-Captain. Elaine Girard is also continuing as Treasurer. Barb announced that Linda Aho was the Winner of the Captain’s Cup, the three-day tournament that took place during the season, and that Linda Aho also received the 2022 Eclectic Award for lowering her scores the most on individual holes. The Men’s Eclectic Winner was Ray Lybarger. Bob Bertoia won the Men Niners’ Captains Cup. The winners of the Most-Improved Niners’ Player Awards were Bob Bertoia and Mary Lou Rablin. Nine Niners shot at least one birdie this season.

Many new events are planned for the 2023 Lady Niners’ season, including a Women’s/Men’s Exchange, with lunch following, and a putting contest with a happy hour. The annual Lady Niner’s afternoon social will take place in February and the 2023 season will lead off with a joint cocktail party at the end of March.
