The strong winds we had been seeing have subsided, however, we still continue to have some breezy days. Many of the activities we had over Memorial Day weekend saw warm temperatures and reasonable breezes. The air moisture content is very low, so our fire danger will most likely remain high for the near future. This weekend we are expected to have near 90-degree heat. With that said, many will be making the trip up from the Valley area to escape the extreme heat that typically occupies that region beginning at this time of year.
The Ponderosa Lions Club is sponsoring its 22nd Annual Charity Golf Classic at 8 a.m., Saturday, June 12. This event will be at the Pine Meadows Country Club. There will be a hole-in-one prize along with many other prizes. A donation of $75 for non-members and for Pine Meadows Country Club members it will be $40 for entry and this will include lunch. The format of the game will be what is called “Best Ball Scramble.” Each person tees off from their respective tee box (men/women). The best shot is chosen and each player places their ball within one club length of the chosen shot. On the green, ball position is marked and each player putts until the putt is made. Mulligans cannot be used for the hole-in-one prize. There will be three categories for the prizes that will be issued and they are: lowest team score, closest to the pin and longest drive. Also many raffle and door prizes will be given out. For more information, please contact the Pine Meadows Country Club Pro Shop at (928) 535-4220 or Lion Larry Dunagan at (928) 535-5225.
