The Fore Women Golf Annual Event “Shoot Out at Dublin Ranch” held on October 18, 2015, was a great event. The weather was spectacular with mild temperatures, sunshine and blue skies. If you missed it, definitely consider joining us next year. The format was a shotgun start and an all-out scramble to the finish for lowest team net score. The costumes and cart decorations were so creative that the judges could not decide on a first place cart decoration winner or a first place costume winner! So, we combined them and awarded two winners for both cart and costume.
Team # 5 with the “Bandito” look complete with mustaches and spurs and “Most Wanted posters; Cheryl Ramirez, Kathi Kling, Jill Martin-Smith and Susan Gallinger. The other cart/costume award went to Team # 1; Betty McCabe, Sue Derby, Sally Panella and Chris Negus.
61 golfers headed out for a round of fun with friends. The field was flighted, and awards for 1st & 2nd place in each flight.
1st Place with a net score of 42; Cheryl Ramirez, Kathi Kling, Jill Martin-Smith and Susan Gallinger
2nd Place with a net score of 43; Gooch Foster, Karen Smith, Terri Erickson, Kay Middleton
Flight # 2
1st Place with a net score of 37; Wendy Gutshall, Frieda Gutshall, Loraine Ward Theroux & Marilyn Bestion
2nd Place with a net score of 40; Shelly Koop, Duyana Pucci, Lalani Rapp & Pat White
Flight # 3 1st Place with a score of 39; Daphne Olsen, Janet Herrala, Pam Wilkes and Ruta Rutisill
Closest to the Pin: #7 Charlene Hastings at 16’5”, and #17 Wndy Gutshall at 7’3”.

I wanted to give a shout out to Terri Erickson, who sponsored a hole. In all the scrambling to prepare for the event, I failed to post her name on a sign. Thanks again Terri and so sorry I missed you.
Again, thank you to all the volunteers how went above and beyond this year. This organization, which I love, runs on volunteers, and we need all of our members to step up and take on a new and rewarding challenge. We have gifts for all our volunteers, and will get them to you. The truck the gifts were on was stuck in the landslide in Southern California, so we could not have them at the event. Liz Riddle has the gifts and the volunteer list and will distribute them to you soon.
Thanks to our amazing photographer, Alice Schultz and her lovely assistant Joan McCarthy, who took our team photos.
A special thanks to Duayna Pucci and her team for a fantastic event. Leta Maco and Judith Coleman Cohen for the silent auction and raffle items.
