Marguerite and her kitchen crew (Candy and Barb Fortini) showed up early to start the coffee and put out the donuts and cakes. Rich and his crew (Joe Shebester, Felix, Allen Best, Tim Pergrem and Darrel) set up the courts for play as the enthusiastic shufflers began to arrive. Tom Grubb delivered the newly cleaned towels just in time (I think we used all of them on the second day). Joan Best collected the 50/50, Connie Bousquet and Barb Nephew collected the entry fees.
Allen Best called us together to say a silent prayer and then lead us in the Pledge of Allegiance. Allen then pulled the 50/50 ticket. Felix had the winning ticket.
Our rooster mascot was on the scene to check us all out and many spectators stopped to watch the play during the day. We received constructive comments about our recently waxed courts and newly renovated discs. A BIG THANK YOU to all our volunteers (Connie Bousquet, Barb Nephew, Arlene, Gerry Bousquet, Paul Fortier and Debbie Evans) who helped out during the day, waxing the discs and re-beading the courts between matches. Without our volunteers we would not have a functioning club.
The second day was a bit more challenging. The final tournaments were played amid drizzling skies and sunshine. We dried and re-beaded the courts and re-waxed the discs several times during the event. Thanks to all who helped keep up.
