LPN Weekly - 8/23/2015

16th Annual LPN Solheim is this Friday/Saturday

The 16th annual LPN Solheim is this Friday and Saturday. Team captains are Gayle Shackelford and Tracy Welberg, and their theme is Peace-Love-Golf. This year's event offers something new, with a team shootout on Friday. Participants should arrive by 5 p.m., with betting tables opening at 5:30 p.m., and the shootout at 6 p.m. Spectators are welcome. Two-gal teams will compete for prizes, with team pairings based on handicap. After the Friday shootout, teams and tee times for the main event on Saturday will be announced, shirts distributed, and team pictures taken. So even if you're not playing in the shootout, participants are asked to join the fun to get details for the Saturday round. Tee times on Saturday will begin at 11 a.m., and play will follow the traditional two-team Solheim format. Spouses or significant others are welcome to evening meals both Friday and Saturday.

Golf Leagues at Both Courses Winding Down

It seems impossible but the 2015 golf league season is quickly coming to an end. The three LPN men's leagues have ended weekly competition, and will wrap up the season this Wednesday with a shootout. The LPN women's league has one more week of competition this Thursday, and will finish with a shootout and awards dinner September 3.

At Panorama West, the Tuesday night men's league will have their last night of play and awards September 1. The Thursday morning men's league will have a tournament September 3, and wrap up their season with a shootout September 10. The Tuesday women's league at Panorama West has two more weeks of competition, then will finish the season with a two-person best-shot tournament and awards luncheon on September 8. A sign-up sheet will be on the league checkin table the next two weeks for those who plan to participate in the final Tuesday women's league golf tournament, luncheon, or both.

15th Annual Birdhouse Boogie on Labor Day

Panorama Junior Class After-Prom Fundraiser September 13

The Panorama High School Junior class will hold a golf tournament Sunday, September 13 at the LPN to raise money for After-Prom. The 18-hole tournament is a four-person, best-shot event with a 12 p.m. shotgun start. Proceeds will support After-Prom, which provides a safe and fun place for Panorama High School students to celebrate their annual spring prom. In addition to supporting After-Prom, five percent of team entry fees, as well as total proceeds raised through all After-Prom fundraisers, will be donated to the Food Backpack program at Panorama Elementary. This program gives students who qualify for free or reduced meals at school a backpack full of nutritious food to take home on weekends.

Organizers want all levels of golfers to participate. There will be chances to purchase mulligans and pick-a-putts, plus have a member of the Panorama Panther state championship boys' golf team hit a shot on certain holes for a small fee. Entry fees are $25 per person for LPN members and $50 for nonmembers, and cover the 18 holes of golf and a cart. Entry forms are available here, or in the LPN pro shop. Forms, with paid entry fees, can be delivered to the pro shop. Questions? Call the pro shop at 641-755-2024 or Jody Babcock at 515-556-3792.
