I put up a sign up sheet for a Pot Luck Dinner for this Friday, June 21 at 5:00 pm. As Allen always says, “We have to eat somewhere”. If we can get at least 12 people, it would be fun to get together for dinner. Please sign up in the cue house or let me know. Hope to see you there. Ciao!

Well, the usual clean up crew came to clean and dry the courts for the Thursday Morning Four Play Challenge and Sixteen (16) shufflers showed up to play. We made it through about twenty minutes and then the rain came down. We were forced to cancel the game until next week. Hope the weather is better and we will see you all there. Ciao!
I was unable to attend the Thursday Morning Four Play today, but Dennis was kind enough to send me a notice. Only Fourteen (14) Shufflers showed up today for our regular Thursday Morning Four Play Challenge as the weather was really hot. No one from the other clubs showed up for the challenge, but Tim Pergrem was able to win all four of his games. Congratulations Tim. Hope to see you all back here next week for our regular play. Ciao!
This morning the usual clean up crew arrived to prepare the courts for the Thursday Morning Four Play Challenge. We had Twenty-two (22) shufflers come for the challenge. Debbie Evans asked that we have a silent prayer for Darrel and other shufflers that were no longer with us. We then played two games and recorded the winners, when Dee Metz became ill from the heat and she and Bob went home so we had even courts for the final two games. Hope she is feeling better. Congratulations to Dennis for winning all four of his games. Hope to see all of you back again next month, June 6th for a new challenge. Ciao!
We had some very sad news as we arrived at the courts this morning. Darrel Harman passed away in his sleep last night. Darrel has been a very active, long time member of the CMS Club. He joined the club in 2006. As they only found him this morning, I do not have any more information to relate to you all. I will post more as I have it. Darrel will be missed.
This morning we cleaned up the courts and set the stage for our Thursday Morning Four Play Challenge. Twenty-One (21) shufflers showed up to play. We welcomed players from Orange City and Deland who joined us for the day. After four games recording the winners, we are happy to congratulate Tom Rimmer and Carolyn Burrell (from Deland) on winning all four of their matches. Hope to see you here next week for the challenge. Ciao!
