Highlights from Westridge ...
     
What a wonderful way to end the Rainbow golf year – perfect weather, great party, good food, and lots of fun!!  Sorry for the cart path rule, but safety first was the course’s main concern due to the recent heavy rains.  I couldn’t agree more!  There are only three courses that will allow a mini shotgun for small groups – Black Gold, Coyote Hills, and Westridge.  All three are tough courses, which makes them less desirable to play for some folks.  We could play at “easier” courses, i.e., Lakewood or La Mirada with consecutive tee times, a six-hour round, and the possibility of finishing in the dark, or not at all, for the last couple of groups.   I know, I’ve been there many times!  So, regardless of how narrow or tough the three courses are (Black Gold, Coyote Hills, Westridge), I think you’ll agree that it is better to have a shotgun when everyone finishes about the same time rather than consecutive tee times when the first few groups would finish an hour or more before the last group comes in.
     
Party time!!  Wow, Did Teri do an awesome job, or what???  All the favors and basket centerpieces were made by her (I think Alice helped her, too.).  Her picture quizzes were unique – Gil won the “people” quiz, Buddie won the golf courses quiz – good job, guys!  And, how about the line dancing with folks trying it for the first time?  It was classic, priceless, and so much fun!  Everyone went home with a raffle prize or two.  Thank you, Teri, for a very fun evening, outstanding job!
     
Our deepest appreciation to all our raffle prize donors – Robert & Donna deWit, Ron Tanaka, Sats & Vi Uyeda, Mark Miller, Kaneshiros, Paul & Nancy Kutnick, Scott & Francie Whitman, Jan & Mark Hauhe, Bob Webster.  What a wonderful treat for the ladies – Judy O’Leary gave us a handy little purse, and Jan Hauhe gave us a bottle of her special olive oil.  Thank you, Judy and Jan!
     
We can’t end this year without thanking our members for coming out to support our club; to all of our scorekeepers; our musubi makers (Donna & Alice); to Warren and Linton Higa for maintaining our website throughout the year; to Phil for producing the yearly booklet on Rainbow stats, photos, and video; to Sats for his photography.
     
Congratulations to Donna deWit -- Rainbow Golf’s Most Improved golfer in 2014.  If you recall, Donna was also the most improved golfer two years ago.  She only posted 86 rounds of golf this year – this does not include the various scramble tournaments she’s played.  Good job, Donna!
     
Thank you, Scott, for a great job in scorekeeping for this shotgun.  Also to Alice and Lynda, thank you for providing the musubis for our last tournament of the year.    

Last, but not least, words cannot express my gratitude to all who contributed to the beautiful money lei.  It was so professionally done by Donna, thanks to her talent, patience, and creativity.  I am overwhelmed by your generosity,  From the bottom of my heart, MAHALO NUI LOA, A HUI HOU KAKOU (thank you very much, until we meet again!)

Holiday wishes to Rainbow members from Al Takaki


Just letting you know that Al would like to wish everyone happy holidays.  Since before Thanksgiving, Al has been “doctoring” a lot and going through chemo treatments.  While some of you were muttering to yourselves about how much you dislike Westridge, Al was thinking about us and wishing he was out there playing instead of lying in bed.  He asked about the party, about Teri doing a “helluva” job, and knew everyone went home smiling! 
       
Let’s keep him in our thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery!!!

Motto for Rainbow Golf . . .
I recently saw a poster that had the following saying which I have adopted for our group . . .
       
You have three choices – 1)  Give in; 2) Give up; 3) Give it all you got!!
