Our 2011 Tournament Co-Directors
Kelly White and Donna Madia were the Co-Tournament Directors for this year's annual tournament. It is the first time that
we had two new WSWGA members taking on the burden of orgainzing our annual tournament. Kelly (left) is President of the
Kendrick Ladies Association. Donna works part-time at the Kendrick golf course. They made a great team. It was obvious
they had a great group of volunteers working on this year's tournament as it was very well organized and ran exceptionaly smooth.
Early on, they received a nice BIG donation which really helped their financial situation.
GREAT JOB LADIES and thanks to all your volunteers.

Checking Out The Scores

Located all around the course for our tournament were all these different signs telling
the historical story of significant Women Of The West. This was a very nice touch to our 2011
HANKIE HIDE CONTEST
We've heard the term "Hankie Panky", but until this year we have never heard of or had a "Hankie Hide"
contest at our annual tournament. These six (6) ladies each won a prize for landing one of their shots nearest
these hidden hankies scattered around the course.

<<< Cool Balldrop Fundraiser
The photo and story to the left was on the front page of the Sheridan Press today (July 20th).
Although the article doesn't mention it, the helicopter dropped these balls on a green near
the clubhouse shortly after we finished the 1st round of our tournament on Tuesday. Although
the fundraiser was held during our tournament, anyone could purchase a numbered ball to be
dropped and many of our WSWGA ladies did just that. Too bad one of our Members didn't win
the $1,000, but we sure supported the cause.
Kudos to Kelly and Donna for arranging this spectacular fundraising event at our tournament.
Tourney Committee Meeting
How fun this tournament planning has been! It's nice to see each other during the golf off-season also.
Won't be long and we'll be playing again. Kendrick GC plans to open for the season Tuesday, March 29th, if weather permits. A
co-worker and I start work tomorrow getting things spruced up and the Pro Shop stocked. Then it will really
be busy. Yippee!!!!! The lady talking in the picture is Yvonne Busse telling us all about her project for
the tournament.       Donna
These are some of the things we will have for the welcome bags for the players. I made all the note pads and
Judy Sackett, Yvonne Busse and all their sewing group made the hot pads. We will have some really good things
for the "goodie bags".
One of our volunteers, Judy Sackett, has spent many hours making this beautiful quilt for our raffle. This photo does not do
Thanks to the WSWGA..
Speaking on behalf of ALL our Kendrick Golf Course ladies, I can say that as far as we are concerned the tournament
has already been a success. We managed to use it as an excuse to get the city to remodel the women’s bathroom!
Our chosen charity is called the Kelly Shreibies Memorial Foundation. We are so proud to have this as our charity.
They do so many good and helpful things to make life a little easier for the women in our area who have been
diagnosed with breast cancer. In 2003 breast cancer claimed 39,800 lives, one of which was Kelly Schreibies. In her
family's attempts to heal the loss of this tender-hearted young woman, a desire was born to honor her name and memory.
The Kelly Schreibies Memorial Foundation was established in 2004. They humbly offer financial assistance to those
in Sheridan County being treated for breast cancer. This assistance can be used for medical or living expenses. A lot of the cancer
patients aren't able to work, but their bills, of course, go on so the foundation grants money to help
with the medical expense.
Many of the golfers around the state will remember our dear friend and fellow golfer Peggy Buss who we lost to cancer in
December, 2008. Peggy was an aunt to Kelly Schreibies and sat on the Board of the Foundation. We feel while we are honoring the
memory of Kelly, we as women golfers are also honoring our friend Peggy, as well as all who have been diagnosed and
treated for breast cancer.
Note: Peggy Buss joined the WSWGA in 1995 and was a member for several years before her health declined.
11 Years Ago..
The last time we held our annual tournament in Sheridan was way back in 2000. It also took place at the Kendrick Golf Course.
Kathy Oatts was the Tournament Director and Mary Ann Morrison of Dubois was crowned our Champion. Membership that year totaled
121 ladies and 88 of those played in the tournament. Since our membership has grown substantially since then and many of our
Members have wanted to return to Sheridan, we believe this tournament will easily attract many participants. As most all of
us know, Sheridan is one of the most beautiful communities in our State.
