Ladies Captain's Report - Frances Painter   
 
Madheim – our final ladies event was held the third week of Sept. on Tue. and Wed. The weather couldn’t have made the golfing more enjoyable. The course was in fabulous condition. A great time was had by all.
This event is really our signature event with different games played on each nine – all match play. We played 9 holes scramble, 9 holes Chapman, 9 holes 4 Ball and finished with single matches.
Europe was victorious over Canada – 23 ½ to 21 ½. We finished the tournament with some good old comfort Canadian food.

Thank you to Charlene Wildridge, Joan Ball and Jan Atkinson-Hall for organizing the great day.
