Best Costume prize winners Ann and Bob Pelton, aka The Bearded Lady and Strong Man

Donna Gruninger and Trudy Rossi

The Verde Sputters had their Summer Fun Event with a circus theme, Under the Big Top. Barb Lund and Marianne Lyons headed up the team of Sheila Abraham, Elaine Ackerman, Lois Glorioso, Donna Gruninger, Ginny Porteous and Jean Shaffer. A fun time was had by all playing games: ring toss, fishing, drop the clothes pin, darts, bean bag toss and putting the ball into the lion’s mouth to name a few. The goal of the games was similar to putting; the team with the lowest score is the winning team. Lucky Team 3 consisting of Jackie Mink, Rick Mink, Laurie Page and Sam Page won for the lowest score with 26 points.

There were several winners of the evening. Each participant was a recipient of a lottery ticket, some scratched off associated winnings. Ann Pelton and husband Bob Pelton won a prize for the best costume. Ann was dressed as a bearded fat lady and Bob Pelton dressed as the circus strong man. A good time was had by all.

The Verde Sputters’ next event is the Sputters/Niners event on October 25. A team of two Lady Niners and two Sputters will play for the lowest team score. The Lady Niners on a team will hit the ball onto the green and the Sputters Ladies will putt the ball into the hole. The combination team with the lowest score wins.
