SHERWOOD FOREST LADIES GOLF LEAGUE RESULTS FOR OCT. 10.
Monday was the last day of league play for 2022. That meant a three-club tourney on the front nine and the league championship on the back nine. Four women played for the league championship: Peggy Baldwin, Roz Banks, Georgie Osterc and Nancy Waclawek. The winner and new club champion: Peggy Baldwin. The winner of the three-club tourney: Sandy Eidson. After play, we gathered at the Cedar Mountain Outpost for lunch and the distribution of awards. Although organized league play is over for this year, play will continue Monday mornings throughout the fall and winter. Through October, play starts at 10 a.m. In November (after the time change), play will start at 11 a.m., or whenever the frost is gone from the course (temperature at least 40 degrees). Show up and play - that's the rules. Organized league play will start again in April 2023. Look for details about the season in March from the board, made up of Sue Wojcik, president; Diane Garvey, vice president; Sandy Eidson, secretary, and Nancy Waclawek, treasurer. At the luncheon, the women thanked Gloria Clouse (outgoing president) and Karen Gleasman (outgoing vice president) for their leadership and dedication to the group. The Sherwood league is built around the idea that golf is fun. If you're new to the game, are rusty, or have played a lot, come join us now during informal play or in April during league play. We would love to add new members to our group from the area. Ladies, if you have questions, reach out to the Sherwood Forest clubhouse (Brian or Justin) or contact Nancy Waclawek, board member, (firstname.lastname@example.org). See you at Sherwood!

AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Packer Young
On Monday my honey and I drove up to the parkway to see the fall splendor aka fall colors. We were not disappointed although there was a haze that dimmed the glorious colors a little. We had heard that the Monarch butterflies were scarce this year due to climate change. We saw a single Monarch flit away to the south and wished it a safe journey.
To top it off we treated ourselves to ice cream cones at Dolly’s. Dolly’s is at the southern entrance to Pisgah National Forest on Hwy 276 going north. They will be closing for the season on the 23rd so if you have a hankering for great ice cream you better get on down there now.
After attempting to weed-eat our yard with a new weed eater, we gave in to our feebleness and hired someone to do it at a reasonable price. I hate to admit defeat but we just can’t walk on side hills anymore. I’ll let you know how it turns out.
As “old” kids we decided to start decorating our mailbox for the various holidays. I took off the magnetic butterflies and gave them a vacation for the winter. It is now adorned with a big black, mean-looking spider and a BOO sign. Turkey day is next.
