SBWGA-18ers Kick Off 2022

Meet your new SaddleBrooke Women’s Golf Association-18 (SBWGA-18) board members for 2022, led by Anne Stonecipher (president) and Carol Bidwell (advisor). They were installed at the December meeting. An exciting year of Tuesday play and special tournaments is planned for 2022. They need you as a member to support their planning by volunteering and/or participating.

At the January business meeting, representatives from CASA of Pinal County, Michelle Tarango and Amanda Lairmore, visited and shared information about the work and mission of CASA. CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates and is a vital arm of the juvenile justice system in Pinal County. This organization is the chosen charity for the SBWGA-18 in the year 2022. They need monetary donations, as well as volunteer time.

Since December, three of our members have carded hole-in-ones: JoAnn Ellison on Dec. 21 on Catalina number 8 using a 6 hybrid, Maire Ryan on Jan. 8 on Tucson number 8 using a 5 hybrid (her third hole-in-one on this hole), and Carol Bidwell on Jan. 13 on Catalina number 6 using a 9 iron. Congratulations, ladies!

A great year of golf is made possible by our sponsors, who support and donate to SBWGA-18, as well as sponsor pin prizes each week during regular play day. The January sponsors were Desert Wind Shutters/John White, Preventive Health and Skin Care/Dede VanBooven Crowder, Wendy Harn/Morris Hall, and Helen Graham/Long Realty.

SBWGA-18 is grateful to Nancy Huffman and Dede Crowder for finding and making our sponsors well known to the group.
