Each year between Easter and Mother’s Day, FWGA has an away weekend in Copperopolis. We usually try to play SaddleCreek and Greenhorn. Members stay in houses they rent for the weekend, cottages at the golf course or hotels in Angels Camp. It is a great start to the golf season. This year was no exception. Here is the write up for the first day of the tournament. Day one of our SaddleCreek away tournament was rewarded with fantastic weather. No rain, no jackets, just lots of sun and fun. Most of you know that this is my favorite, lady friendly course in California and before the weekend was finished it had lived up to its reputation. The winners were as follows;
Closest to the pin #4- Charlotte McConkie (on right) at 7′ 6″
Member low net. Kelly Tague(2ndfrom right) at 67
Closest to the pin # 14- Julie Campiotti (middle) at 5′ 8″
Member low gross Julie Campiotti 85

We thank Betty McCabe and Sally Panella for the registration and Sandy Gonzales recorded all with her camera. To see all the pictures from the weekend check them out SaddleCreek Pictures. A very special thanks to Liz Riddle, Sandy Gonzales and Shirley Walker who hosted the after golf awards ceremony and cocktail party. One of my guests sampled all the delicious food and tried a Cosmo, Lemon Drop and Chocolatini! I think I can safely say a good time was had by all. As Bo Rothchild said “see you all in Monterey.” Dee Tuohy
After leaving the cocktail and appetizer party, some members ventured into Angels Camp for dinner, others went back to the SaddleCreek club house for dinner and some had a putting contest back at the Saddlecreek putting green followed by a competitive game of Mexican Train Dominoes. Day Two dawned with beautiful weather and another lovely day. New teams and new game! Onward to the Course. Bo and Linda Rothchild were the directors for the tournament and chose 2 person best ball. The first place team was, Linda and Bo Rothchild, Kelly Andrews and Tami Waddell with a team total of 118. The second place team was Dee & Pat Tuohy, and Judy and Ray GIles with a team total of 120. The third place team was Kristina Ramos, Sarah Good, Betty McCabe and Joan McCarthy with a 122.

Another FWGA tournament is in the bag. Lots of fun was had, balls lost in fields of daisies, water and mud in bunkers and hazards that eat balls! But beside all of that a great day was had by all and it even tried to warm up. Charlene Hastings won Low Gross in the Championship Flight with an 86. Piper Shaull won Low Net with a 72. The rest of the field played 2 person Best Ball. The first place team was Kelly Tague and Jan Moura with a 64. Second place went to Liz Riddle and Sandy Gonzalez. Third place went to Mimi Jacobs-Johnson and Betty McCabe Tami Waddell took closest to the pin on both holes. Her foursome didn’t want to measure her 37 foot one since they were so sure someone would get closer! Piper Shaull posted the scores of those competing for Players and Club Championship on the Leaderboards. Kristina Ramos had 2 birdies and Piper Shaull had one. Check out the Birdie Board for the season totals. BE sure to check out the rest of the pictures at Blue Rock Springs.
