It is not often I devote the headlines to the men! Best of luck is extended to the Ulster Cup team and Team Captain Charlie Coughlan, who play the final in Letterkenny Golf Club this Sunday 16th September at 1pm. One of the biggest competitions to come to Letterkenny Golf Club in recent years, everyone is urged to please come and support the team as they try to regain the title they last won in 2010.The golfing season and nights are fast drawing in and some of our fair weather ladies are already polishing and storing their clubs for yet another year. Granted, there was not a lot of fair weather around this summer, but we made the most of it! Our next event on the diary, is of course Lady Captain Angela Kilgallens outing to Redcastle for golf, dinner, B & B on the 22nd Sept. Who knows, perhaps some of the Donegal team might join us for some pre match tips from the ladies.The lady beginners took to the course for a scramble with experienced golfers to finish off their coaching season. The winning team was Marian O’Sullivan and Mary Fowley along with Anne McAleer and Marjorie Morrison, 2nd was Anne Cannon, Anne Condon, Marie Gallen and Barbara McFeely and 3rd was Karen Crawford, Bridget McClafferty, Eileen Devine and Helen Bonnar. Well done to Anne Condon who worked so closely with new lady beginners this year, making their golfing experience an enjoyable introduction to the sport. The winner of the September Pendant was Celine Bradley 75nett. Runner-up Marian OSullivan 75 nett B.O.T. 3rd Marian Keating 75nett B.O.T. It was also the final competition to count Golfer of the Year points, which at the start of the day was just 2 points between Celine Bradley and Marian O’Sullivan in favour of Marian. Thoughts of a juicy punnet at the 10th inspired the young Sligo lass, although she feared ‘she had blown it’ at the 16 the, but kept plugging away until the last ball was in the last hole to emerge the victor this year again, by one point.The 13 hole competition on Thursday was played in close to gale force weather, or so it felt. Cathy Marren apparently never noticed it and won with 28 points. Runner up Rena O’Herlihy 27pts and 3rd Monica McDonagh 26pts.On Sat 15th Lady Captain Angela leads the team to play the Mary McDaid Memorial Cup in Portsalon Golf Club. Best wishes to everyone on what is always a most enjoyable day out. Lady Captain Angela, Mr Captain Niall and Mr President Padraic mentioned from time to thousand times, they qualified to play in the K Club last weekend! Representing the club very well, they narrowly missed out on a placing. No doubt, they may have mentioned once or twice the club is celebrating its centenary year in 2013!Next Tuesday there will be a club competition. Dare I say it, the Christmas Turkey competitions will soon be starting and the return of the very popular running hamper competition which will be 18 holes on weekends only. The competition secretary will be working furiously as always, to ensure all information is displayed on the notice board in advance.Photo: Winners in the End Of Season competition for Lady Beginners at Letterkenny Golf Club.

“We can always use bottled water, coffee, cereal and tea,” Preheim said. County officials are collecting materials for shelter residents from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Santa Clarita Service Center, 24271 San Fernando Road, Newhall. “We’ve already had some people bring in clothing and items like toothpaste,” center manager Lupe Lopez said. “My staff will take anything people bring in that homeless people can use; toiletries like deodorant or personal hygiene items, warm clothing, even easy-open food items.” Preheim is organizing groups to prepare meals offsite because the buildings do not have a kitchen, but hasn’t gotten past the first month. “We have some people signed up, but right now we’re focusing on getting the shelter open. After that, I’ll have a chance to look over the schedule for the gaps. If anyone wants to volunteer to cook a meal, all they have to do is call me. Shelter organizers expect about 120 people and 25 to 30 families – with more than 50 children, Preheim said. Families have their meals at the shelter then are given vouchers to stay at hotels. It takes 1,700 to 2,000 volunteers to staff the shelter during the winter months, she said. “This community is unbelievably generous with everything, including their time,” she said. The shelter, at 21190 Centre Pointe Parkway, is run by the Santa Clarita Community Development Corporation. Volunteers wishing to participate in the Alternative Gift program or donate time or goods to the shelter can call Preheim at (661) 259-2267.

CANYON COUNTRY – Santa Clarita’s emergency winter shelter will not open until Dec. 20 due to delays in delivering code-compliant buildings to a county maintenance yard on Centre Pointe Parkway. In the interim, shelter officials have established an “Alternative Christmas Gift” list for the community, offering individuals and groups the chance to sponsor one or more clients. A donation of $2.50 provides a sack lunch for one person; $20 covers housing and three meals for one person for a day; $50 provides 20 sack lunches; $75 supports one family for a safe, clean and warm night as well as a hot dinner, breakfast and sack lunch. Gifts grow exponentially; $100 provides three meals a day for 30 people; $120 covers one week of shelter and three meals a day for one person; a $500 donation supports one family with shelter and food for a week and $700 provides an entire week of meals for 30 people.

More than 120 people are expected to use the facility over a three-month span that ends March 15, a significant increase over last year’s 77 residents. Shelter manager Barbara Preheim said that the prefabricated buildings that make up the shelter have been modified and are being shipped from G.E. Capital in Fontana. “We’re busy recruiting all our people to give us a hand once the buildings arrive,” she said. Andy Gump Inc. is providing portable toilets and wash stations and Preheim said security guards have been hired for the three-month stretch. Many supplies for the shelter have been secured, but a few remain on their wish list.
