Today Randy, Bonnie and Dennis set up the courts for the Singles Mingles Challenge. We had Ten Amateurs and Eleven Pro/State Ams come to play. We were all pleased to see that Chris and Joe Inga are back for the season. I believe that this way of playing will help our amateurs become more comfortable with the game.
Pros/State Ams First Place: Chris Inga with 355 points Second Place: Randy Radke with 189 points Third Place: Bonnie Radke with 195 points
Amateurs First Place: Debbie Schaefer with 246 points Second Place: Dennis Schaefer with 222 points Third Place: Dick Wood with 171 points
Hope to see all of you for our next Singles Mingles on Wednesday, November 3rd at 8:45 am. Let’s see if we can’t get some more participants to show up. This is really good practice for our tournament on November 18th. See you on the courts.
Just a quick reminder that tomorrow is the Third Wednesday of the month, October 20, so we will have a Singles Mingles competition. Please arrive no later than 8:45 and bring your $2.00 entry fee. Amateurs will be paired with our Pros. Hope to see you all there.
Yesterday we had a great time at the first “tournament” in almost two years. Thank you to Cindy and Zak Wonson, John Fortini, Dennis Buelk and Randy and Bonnie Radke who arrived early to set up the ten courts we were to use. We had a great display of all of our sponsors and everything was set before our players began to arrive. We limited the tournament to sixteen (16) Amateurs and sixteen Pros (16).
We had a very light sprinkle early on in the games, but over all the day was beautiful with a slight breeze. Everyone seemed to have an interesting day with our Amateurs learning a lot from our Pros. The day was meant as a practice for our Amateurs to see what a real tournament is like. All of the players finished on the first day except the First and Second Place Consolation Teams who will finish their matches this morning. Turned out a really close competition, with a good audience. Congratulations to all of our players. Once again thank you to all our sponsors for their support.
MAIN: FIRST PLACE: Dennis Buelk and Vaughn Long SECOND PLACE: Charlie Jones and Tim Pergrem THIRD PLACE: Zak Wonson and Bob Augusto FOURTH PLACE: Bob Tager and Barb Fortini
CONSOLATION: FIRST PLACE: Jerry Jabaut and Janet Shira SECOND PLACE: Edna Triplett and Tom Grubb THIRD PLACE: Carolyn Burrell and Bill Van Note FOURTH PLACE: Richie Burrell and Jane Tager
Tomorrow we are holding our first In-House Tournament for 2021. We will be following the Northern District rules and regulations with entry fees, charts and sponsors. The tournament will begin at 9:00 am and we would love to see the club members, who are not participating, come and cheer the participants on. It is always a lot of fun and we would like to support our wonderful sponsors as well.

So we will be playing regular time 10:00 am next Wednesday, Oct 13th and then Singles Mingles will be on Wednesday, Oct 20th at 8:45 am. Thanks for your attention to this matter.
Dennis, Randy and Bonnie set up for our Singles Mingles competition this morning, Many players we thought would come to join us, were not able to come. Today, we had only eight Amateurs and eight Pro/State Ams come to play. I believe that this way of playing will help our amateurs become more comfortable with the game.

Amateurs First Place: Vaughn Long with 298 points Second Place: Jack Koppelman with 222 points Third Place: Barb Hale with 198 points

Hello folks. I am sending out a confirmation regarding our in- house tournament scheduled for Oct 14. The format will be a Pro/Am Draw. Before play each Amateur will draw the name of their Pro partner for the day. At the moment we have almost equal amounts of Amateurs and Pros signed up which is great. We could use a couple more Pros. I believe this tournament is very important to train our new players and I am excited that we have so many planning to play. We can take up to 20 players in each category.
All players need to be on site by 8:30 am and sign in with Bonnie Radke. Sign in closes at 8:45 sharp. No exceptions. Play begins at 9am. Cost will be $6 per player. We will pay prize money to the top three teams in the main and consolation groups. This works as follows. If you win your first match and lose your second you are out. If you lose your first match you go to the consolation group and play until you lose. Please do not leave without checking your final status with Bonnie.
Please come prepared to spend most of the day. Bring your drinks and a picnic lunch. We may need to finish the finals on Friday morning so please clear your schedules. Because this is an in house tournament and because of other concerns, your Pro partner will be able to wax discs as needed or to add beads, etc. Normally, this is the responsibility of the tournament staff only.
If you want to play you must sign up by Saturday , October 9. The sheet is in the clubhouse. Please do not sign up if you are not sure you can commit to a full day of play.. We are looking forwards to a fun day!
