The San Saba Ladies Golf Association met on September 29, 2011 for the monthly business meeting. The president, Anita Miles, called the meeting to order and Hattie Rogers opened the meeting with special prayer for Bobbie Churchill and Mabel Letbetter who have serious health issues. The Secretary, Jo Anne Hardy, read the minutes and they were approved as read. Hattie, acting treasurer, gave the financial report and the report from the Pecan Classic Tournament. Sandee Hartley, traveling 4-ball chair, announced that the October tourney would be in Georgetown on October 18, 2011. The ladies voted unanimously to send a donation to the Cancer Relay for Life, as they have done in the past. The ladies also unanimously voted to keep the same officers for 2012.
The meeting adjourned for play day with the chair for October, Hattie Rogers, calling for a game of Nassau, where there is a winner for the front nine, winner on the back nine, and overall winner. Dorothy Sterner won the front nine and Anita Miles won the back nine and over all low gross and also won the chip in pot. Hattie Rogers won the putt pot and tied with Anita and Dorothy for the low net for the day.
The San Saba Ladies Golf Association was well represented at the Senior Women’s Amateur Golf Tournament in New Braunfels, Texas on October 5 - 6, 2011 by five ladies, Hattie Rogers, Jo Ann Snow, Jo Anne Hardy, Sandee Hartley, and Anita Miles. The ladies look forward to these tournaments where they have made many friendships and enjoy getting to play all over Texas.
Jo Anne Hardy and Hattie Rogers both were in contention the first day and Anita Miles was only one stroke out for the tournament and Jo Ann Snow and Sandee Hartley were both in contention for most improved from day one to day two; but alas, no winners, just fun in the sun. Jo Ann Snow won the drawing for her flight so at least we came home with one prize!
The San Saba ladies honored all participants at the banquet with pink tulle wrist ties in remembrance of cancer awareness month and then before Anita led in prayer she acknowledged all the cancer survivors. There were approximately 20 cancer survivors who were given a standing ovation. Then before the prayer Anita gave a one minute rap sermon, which prompted a group to ask her the next morning if she was a preacher. What a compliment! The girls laughed.
At the banquet the president, Charlene Gallo, honored the oldest player, Dottie Ainsworth, who is 89 years old! Very impressive player and lovely lady!
So we just hope and pray that at 89 we’re still "swinging!"
