The usual clean up crew came to prepare the courts. Dennis Buelk normally runs the Singles Mingles, but he had to leave early, so he helped Bonnie set everything up. We had Nine (9) Pro/State Ams and Four (4) Amateurs show up to shuffle. Mother Nature stopped our second game from starting. We waited out the rain and cleared off the courts. Some of us finished the second game and then the rain poured down. We decided that more rain was coming so the entry fees were refunded and we went home. The high scorer for the two games was Randy Radke with 147 points. Second high score for two games was Edna Triplett with 124 points. Honey Donnelly was the high score for the Amateurs with 91 points. Not everyone finished their second game or did not put down the scores. Hopefully the weather will cooperate with us next month on the Second Tuesday when we meet for another challenge. See you there. Ciao!
Just a reminder that Singles Mingles is this Tuesday, Oct. 23rd. For those who want to participate, please be there prior to 8:45 AM to register and pay your $2.00 entry fee. Game starts at 9:00 sharp. We play five games with twelve frames each game. We will pair as many Amateurs with a Pro/State Am as we can, depending on who shows up. The top three Amateurs and top three Pros/State Ams take home the winnings. Remember, you do not have to be single to play. Hope to see you there. Ciao!
Last night our monthly Pot Luck Dinner was held. We had already set up the tables following the exciting completion of our two day ND Tournament. There was not much else to do but wait for the Pot Luck Dinner to socialize and eat. Nineteen (19) members showed up to enjoy each others company for dinner. Plenty of wonderful dishes to share and so much to talk about. Tom Carbonell had us say a silent prayer for those who could not be with us and then made several announcements. He read off the ND Tournament results and recognized the CMS Club winners. We also learned that George Karras had won seven medals in the Senior Olympics, two of which were gold. We currently have 107 paid members for 2019. Time For Everyone Else To Pay Your Dues.
Following the dinner we put away the tables and set up for the usual evening game of Bunko. Sixteen CMS Club members stayed for the fun and games. Hope to see you all next month. Ciao!
The usual clean up crews showed up to prep the Courts and man the Kitchen for the Northern District Any Doubles Tournament. A Big Shout Out and Thank You to Rich Kordeleski who organized all our Volunteers (who are too many to mention) but are sincerely appreciated. Fifty-Four (54) Shufflers arrived for the challenge. Twenty-Eight (28) members of the CMS Club participated in this tournament. Our guest shufflers enjoyed coffee, donuts and tea while our volunteers prepared the courts. Tom Carbonnell, President, had us all gather outside for a silent prayer and led us in the Pledge of Allegiance. Pat King had us say a silent prayer for Jack Wooten, who had passed away last week and then made some announcements. Allen Dronsfield announced winners from previous tournaments.
Thank you to Richie and Carolyn Burrell who were the directors for the Tournament and our Sponsors who were Tim Pergrem from T&T Painting and the CMS Shuffleboard Club. Also thank you to Donna King for helping out when Richie stepped out for a previous appointment.

The CMS Club is hosting The Northern District Tournament on our courts this Thursday and Friday. This Tournament does not run itself. We need Volunteers to help with the courts and the discs throughout the tournament. We also would appreciate a good turn out of our members to cheer on the participants. So far I have one person signed up to help. Please help support your club and the other members. The morning volunteers on Thursday need to be at the courts by 8:00 am to help set up. We appreciate your participation in this event.
Sigrid Reichert put a comment on my note about Jeannette Gagnon. No One let me know this. Our prayers are with you Sigrid and we hope you are returning for the winter.
