First all, a big shout out to the Falcon Lake Golf Course maintenance team who keep the course in such great shape. This year must of been a quite a challenge with all of the heat and lack of rain. Here’s Glen, one of the maintenance crew members doing his best to keep things green on the 17th hole.

“And that ladies is why we don’t eat the raspberries growing along the fairways.”
“Nice to see the Falcon Lake Golf Course dedicated to conserving and recycling.”
How beautiful is this lady?
Falcon Ladies Golf League Honorary Lifetime member Nellie Chorney, just turned 100! Can you believe it?
Several of our members hosted a luncheon in August for this beautiful lady at the Falcon Lake Golf Course restaurant to celebrate this milestone.
“Nellie Chorney was a long time member of the Falcon Ladies Group, dating back to the eighties. She was still golfing at the age of 90. She will infamously be remembered for retrieving Doris Ross’s ball from the creek at Hecla Golf Course and falling in. She proceeded to the next tee, where she played that hole in her skivvies. Hence, I named this ladies golf getaway “The Nellie”. She is fiesty, a friend to everyone and the best perogie maker you will ever find!Evelyn Proceviat
It just goes to show you, golfing does keep you young.
Last Game – August 31st.
Sadly our season is coming to a close. But hey, that means it’s party time! Once again we are so lucky that Falcon Ladies League member Hildy Dyck has offered to host our Annual Wind-up Party at her cabin on West Hawk Lake. The wind-up party will start right after our last league game on August 31st. For those of you who are new, the wind-up is party is where we crown our Club Champions, dole out the prizes for the mini-tournaments, give away the most coveted prize of all for the most birdies, find out who had the most chip ins and who was the most improved player this season (ringer board).
This is also the time for club business – reports from our executive (don’t worry, they’re really short reports) and to fill vacancies on our executive team.
Our social team extraordinaire is preparing an outstanding lunch for us all at a cost of $10.00 each, payable in cash at the wind-up. That includes wine!
We’ll send out a map of the location a few days before the event. We suggest that some of you park your car at the main beach at West Hawk and ride together up to Hildy’s cabin too avoid congestion.
Executive Positions Open
Ask not what your club can do for you… ask what you can do for your club!
Currently there are two positions opening up for next year’s Executive: President and Vice-President.
President: Traditionally the VP assumes the role of the President once the Presidents term is over. Because we have a vacancy in the VP role no one is in the wings ready to step into the President’s role this year. We are looking for a volunteer who is comfortable of assuming President’s role without being a VP first if you are up to the task. Perhaps someone who has already been in the role before and would consider serving again? The time commitment is minimal, maybe 10 minutes a week during the summer months. Plus you have the back up of the new VP should you need it. If no one is willing to put their name forward for President in 2022, our current President, Darlene Mulligan is willing to extend her term for one year to order to elect a new VP who would then assume the role of President for 2023.
Vice-President: This position is critical. We need you! Please put your name forward if you can fill the VP position. The time commitment is minimal – at the most maybe 10 minutes a week (if that) during the months of June to the end of August. The VP is responsible for learning the role of President, is our club ambassador and fills in for the President whenever required.
