Executive Board Meeting and General Board Meeting. Nov 3, 2018

I guess I need to apologize for not putting a reminder on the website. The Executive Board Meeting and General Board Meeting did not have a quorum. But they had a nice informal gathering where they got to talk about issues that Tom Carbonell thought was productive. I must make sure that we have something on the web for the next meeting. These meetings are important for the proper functioning of our club. Please post your club schedule and help me remember when we have meetings and functions. Please plan to attend next month on December 1, 2018.

Christine Giumarra

John sent us a note about Christine’s fall at our Tournament. “Just a word to let you know that Christine is doing fine. She has no broken bones but her right leg took a beating from the concrete.
Our thanks to everyone who rushed to her side and were so comforting and helpful. We love our shuffleboard friends.

November Fun Day Possibly on Sat. Nov. 17th

We currently do not have a Fun Day Scheduled for November. We are trying to determine if we would have enough people interested in holding the Fun Day if we did schedule it. There is a sign up sheet in the Cue House for sign up and we have ten people so far. We would need at least 20 people for it to be worthwhile to setup all the obstacles. Please either sign up on the sheet or send me an email ( if you would be interested in participating.

For those members who are new to the club.  We have teams of four people competing against each other.  We set up the Twenty (20) courts with obstacles and each team tries to achieve the highest score on each court.  It is a lot of fun and you can be a beginner to play.

We would have the usual hot dog lunch following the games. Thanks for your interest in the event.  This is a members only event.   Hope we can get this done. Ciao!
