Crazy Pants Nite!

Our wrap-up event for the 2015 season was a John Daly Crazy Pants nite. In addition to the opportunity to show off our most stunning golf attire, we got to play a scrambled scramble that featured unusual rules and -- on one hole -- very unusual putting instruments!

   

Three types of chili, fantastic side dishes and desserts, and a gift grab made the EWGA holiday gathering a wonderful evening of laughter and friendship!
