Unfortunately there was a poor turn out for our annual general meeting. The board stressed for more volunteer help for both the clubhouse and course. With the loss of one director and the gain of two new board members a touch of good news was achieved. We are sad to see Leann Caron leave the board but happy to have John Tiemstra an Melanie Schultz both join the board. Nov 16th new positions within the board will be decided upon.
November 9th at 7:00 PM will be the date for our AGM. Please join us for our year wrap up and the joining of our new board members. Everyone welcome and members get a chance to voice their concerns as well as use their voting powers.
Any person that is able to help us work a casino Dec 26th and/or Dec 27th 2017 please supply your name to the clubhouse before October 15th. This casino can help us generate major income to help with equipment and many other things our club really needs. Persons volunteering must not have a criminal record. Thank you from the Paddle River Golf Course
Due to the great success and the ever increasing size of the Pumpkin Walk, it is with great sadness that this event will be moved to the Agrena Sports Grounds in Barrhead this year. Thank you to the Co-op and all of the other businesses that have participated in this amazing event for letting us be the host of this walk for the last 10 years. We hope that your new area will allow you to continue growing and to keep making the Pumpkin Walk the success that it is. Best Wishes and Happy Halloween!
Special thanks to Shawn and Penny Stephani from Stephani Motors Ltd. Barrhead for taking these aerial photos for us. And the most amazing thing is, these were taken the Saturday afternoon following the big wind cleanup that happened Aug 24 2017
This picture shows the pile of broken branches hauled to this spot on the edge of the 4th faiway , waiting for the Town of Barrhead to come and chip up.
August 24 2017 This is what we woke up to this morning. A pleading call for help was put on Facebook and a few calls were made. At the end of the day with volunteer help from non members Calvin Bach, John Dodson and Rick Bridgeman, members Tasha Carins, Henry Lappin, his wife, Allan Corke, Devon and Degon Hennesy, Off duty staff Crystal Dodson, On duty staff Mariet Kosterbok, Ralph Badry, Tracy Pess, Eden, Jeanie Rolof, board directors Norm Simpson and Brett Schultz. Thanks to this great team our course was ready for the Legion tournament Saturday morning.
We also would like to thank the Town of Barrhead for coming on Monday to chop up and remove all of the broken limbs, branches and leaves.
Topanga Kosterbok was only 13 years old on July 19th, 2012. I imagine the feelings she felt, when she teed up on the 5th hole, and watched her ball flying straight and true toward the pin. The excitement of not knowing how close you really are because you can't see the green from any tee box on the 5th. Topanga, like her mother preferred to play from the men's tee's and there is a narrow channel between the trees and on top of the hill sand trap. The feeling coming over the crest of the hill, surprise it's not on the green, possible disappointment, did it roll off the back side? And finally as she walks to the hole utter glee as she see's her ball in the hole Congrats Topanga!
