Thirsty Thursdays

We had a nice turnout for our first WGA Thirsty Thursday!  We had over 20 ladies in all join up for a scramble format in mid- afternoon, followed by a fun happy hour with appetizers provided by the WGA.  There were some great birdie putts and other notable shots during the event!

The team which reigned victorious included Marie Curran, Mary Reddington, Danette Travaglini and Charlotte Waters!  Second place went to Kathy Murray, Karen Sergison and Barbara Smith. Congratulations, Ladies!

Check your email for information on the next Thirsty Thursday event, and look for the sign-up sheet on the Pro Shop Bulletin Board!
