Lethbridge Promotions in Full Swing

The season-long Closest to the Pin contest sponsored by the 2012 Ford World Women’s Curling Championship came to an exciting conclusion September 8th for the Henderson Lake Golf Club Ladies League. The 18 weekly winners gathered at the club for a “Shoot Out” to decide the grand champion.  The shot of the day came from Marie Uyesugi with a chip of 71.5 inches from the pin to win a Double Impact “Opener” package including a pair of tickets for the first 11 draws.
