This morning was pretty cold for us Floridians at 59 degrees, but we still had Thirty-Two (32) determined shufflers show up for our November Fun Day. Rich Kordeleski and his team did a great job setting up the courts and getting them ready for play. Barb Fortini registered all the players and collected the entry fee. Mary McConnell and Candy Kordeleski took over kitchen duties and had hot coffee and tea ready to ward off the cold. Allen Best assigned the team captains before the beginning of play. We had eight (8) teams of four players on each team. Following the games, Barb Fortini tallied up the scores while the rest of us enjoyed hot dogs, chips, drinks and dessert. Mary McConnell won the 50/50. Then Allen read off the winning teams from high to low score .
FIRST PLACE: Bonnie Radke (Captain), Tom Grubb, Mike Beall and Joan Sanford with a score of 1170. SECOND PLACE: Rich Kordeleski (Captain), Betty Buccini, Jane Tager and Bob Tager with a score of 1160. THIRD PLACE: John Fortini (Captain), Felix Piscitelli, Loretta Cantalupo and Bob Stock with a score of 1120.
HIGH SCORERS: First Place: Bob Tager 410 points, Second Place: Bonnie Radke with 370 points, and Third Place: John Fortini with 360 points.

The tables were set up and the room arranged by Tom Carbonell. Johnnie Conner is back and has once again out done herself. The decorations were festive and beautiful for our Club’s Thanksgiving celebration. Thirty-Two (32) people came to the Pot Luck. The Club supplied the turkey (prepared by Fortinis) and the ham (prepared by Tom Carbonell). The rest of the fixings from our participants were wonderfully delicious. Joan Best said a prayer for us. We all ate too much and enjoyed each others company visiting with some of our snowbirds and others who have returned. Following dinner, all the tables and chairs were cleared and thereafter some of the diners stayed for a fun game of Bunco. Wishing all of you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving week. Hope too see you all at our Christmas Pot Luck next month. Ciao!
