Our 2019 season began at Harding in Griffith Park last Saturday, under bright blue skies. Masquerade was the theme of the day and those sporting fun and festive masks had a chance to win tickets to the upcoming Genesis Open at Riviera CC. Mask wearers received a refreshing, relaxing beauty mask. Many marvelous masks graced the faces of attendees. And the winners were -- Liz Gnerre, Mary Ayers, and Jennifer Gapasin-Yguico.
Players couldn’t hide, however, from Trouble, the game of the day. Seven different transgressions led to penalty points, but could be erased on a given hole simply by one-putting. Nearly trouble-free were winners Carol Grosvenor and Mary Bension. Karen Share kept all of the closest-to-the-pin winnings to herself as she nabbed both. The highlight of our day was the gathering of FIVE past Presidents of our LA Chapter, including our 2nd, Nancy Katayama, our 3rd, Joanne Williams, along with Kathy Malmfeldt, Lori Baker, and Barbara Trivison. A large part of our great Chapter's success is due to their combined years of leadership. Thank you ladies! And a big thanks to our Co-Captains, Melanie Maass and Laura Perry for a great start to 2019.
