The weather at the Golf Club at Redmond Ridge was more suitable for ducks than birdies, but the rain failed to quell the enthusiasm of the 59 golfers and 26 volunteers who participated in Saturday's EWGA Pacific NW Semi-Final. Players from six chapters came to town to determine who would qualify for the EWGA Championship, held October 10-11 at the Nashville area Hermitage Course. Three Seattle players qualified, and Carolyn Friedt finished eighth in Flight 3 at the Championships. Congratulations, Carolyn! That semi-final in the rain prepared them well for the Tennessee weather!
