This morning was 47 degree and only Eight (8) hardy shufflers showed up for the Singles Mingles Challenge. While cleaning the courts a raccoon checked us out. We each played five matches, recording the winning scores, before drawing partners for the next match. The wind picked up and it got even colder during the subsequent matches.
Congratulations to the winners:
First Place : Debbie Evans; Second Place: Darrel Harman; Third Place: Cindy Wonson. We will not play on Christmas Day. January 8th will be the next scheduled day for Singles Mingles. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Ciao!
Debbie, Darrel and Cindy

More Pictures from the Tournament
Eleven (11) Volunteers showed up this morning to clean and prepare the courts for our Northern District Tournament on Thursday and Friday. We washed the boards and the sponges. Cleaned most of the discs. Swept the Cue House and swept the courts. Rich Kordeleski had come over the day before and cleared all the weeds and then toweled all the courts. Thanks to Tom Carbonell, Tom Grubb, John Fortini, Rod and Donna Lewis, Bob Stock, Mary McConnell, Dave Helverson, Felix Piscitelli, Bonnie and Randy Radke for all their hard work.
We still need Volunteers for the Tournament on Thursday and Friday Dec 6/7 to help with the discs and the courts. Participants in the tournament are not allowed to maintain the discs. Please sign up in the Cue House.
The town employees have been hard at work replacing 2 x 4s, painting the side boards, seats and repairing the hurricane brackets holding up our roofs. Everyone is working hard to make our courts look great for our guests. Thank you. Ciao!

Denny and Angie Wyss made a donation to repair some of our lightly used gold metal shuffleboard cues. Rick Kordeleski has been able to refurbish five (5) of these with new swivel heads/ runners and handles which are now for sale for $25.00. These are a bargain compared to new cues sold locally. Inquire with Dennis, Bonnie or Rich. Ciao!
