The 2017 Wildhorse Lady Niners Princess Tournament

Carolyn Thomas

The 2017 annual WLN Princess Tournament was a huge success! Please bow or curtsey when you come upon our 2017–2018 winner, Princess Virginia Wheeless.

It was a great day with lots of excitement. It started with a close watch on the weather but by hole 2 we were confident the rain would hold off. We had a record number of new players this year who all had a great time. Our caddies were outstanding! Bob the traffic director kept everyone in line. David was our MC, and Larry A. was an excellent ball spotter. The photographer got some fabulous pics, and the drone got excellent overhead shots. Lastly our Royal Prince Doyle looked like a real prince and helped all day long! Thank you all. You are the best. A spectacular end at hole 18 left Virginia and Shirley Green as the last two golfers. It was a close game between friends. The winner was determined by one stroke.

Thanks to all the sponsors, caddies, the countless volunteers and lastly the princess committee: Carolyn Thomas, Jane Thompson, Janie Farnsworth, Sandy Spitzmeuller, Mary Ornberg and Tina (social diva) Hoffenberg. Again, congratulation to Miss Virginia and her skilled caddie Steve Sheppard. A job well done.

The Board of Officers for 2018 is as follows: Janie Farnsworth, president; Barb Holst, vice president; Jane Thompson, treasurer; Janie Cindric, secretary.

Future events include the Christmas Party on December 12.
