CMS Club Annual Banquet – March 21, 2018

The tables and chairs were set, the decorations were done (thank you Johnnie and her team of volunteers) and all was made ready for the Annual Banquet. Johnnie Connor and Betty Buccini greeted us at the door while Joan Best collected for the 50/50 (won by Felix (the cat) Piscitelli). Everyone enjoyed the Hors d’oeuvre and found a seat with friends. Joan Best lead us in the pledge of allegiance and then a prayer.

Allen Best was the Master of Ceremonies and welcomed all our new members. He called out the tables for the buffet and we lined up for Turkey, Ham and Roast Beef supplied by the club and prepared by some members while other members supplied all the scrumptious side fixings. So much wonderful food. Once dinner and desert was finished Allen called the hall back to order.

He thanked all the people responsible for our club running so smoothly throughout the year. Dennis Buelk trained approximately 95  new members in 2017 and has already trained 20 more for 2018. Marguerite and Paul Fortier’s fellow volunteers ran the kitchen. Johnnie served not only as Vice President but head of the Decorations committee. Al Bessette will be retiring as one of our Games Managers and Jerry Jabaut will be assuming the role. Rich Kordeleski and Mary Ann Pabst will stay on for another year of InterCity play. Rich, John Fortini and Felix did a wonderful job of Court managing this year. Allen thanked Sid Pomainville for running Cribbage, Joan Best for running Mahjong and Mary Harlow for continuing the scoring.  He also thanked all the members of the board and we all applauded the outgoing members. Betty Buccini has served the club well as the Treasurer for many years and will be missed.

Bob Tager took over the Ceremonies to install our new Executive Board Members. Dennis Buelk and Tom Grubb were sworn in as the new Directors. Arlene Jabaut was sworn in as our new Treasurer and Barb Fortini will continue as the Secretary. Bob Tager then swore in our new President Tom Carbonell for the next two years. Congratulations Tom Carbonell for taking over a very difficult job of keeping this club in order. Tom will be following in the footsteps of  our marvelous, effective and very well appreciated President, Al Best, who successfully guided the club for the last four (4) years.With the help of all our wonderful volunteers, it will continue to run smoothly. A Great Big Thanks goes to Allen Best who will remain on the board as the Past President.

The tables and chairs were then all cleared away and all the dishes washed. Close to Thirty (30) people remained to play Bunco. What a wonderful way to end our shuffleboard and social season. We wish our snowbirds farewell, safe travels and will look forward to their safe return in the Fall.  Ciao till then.

 

Al and Joan Best

Tom Carbonell, Johnnie Conner, John Fortini, Tom Grubb, Dennis Buelk, Arlene Jabaut and Barb Fortini.

March Fun Day Results – 3/17/18

What an enjoyable day for a Fun Day Challenge. The usual volunteer crew showed up to set up 20 courts with challenging obstacles on a few of them. Fifty-Four (54) shufflers signed up for the fun and games. Joan Best collected the 50/50 which Bill VanLare won. Barb Fortini registered everyone and collected the dollar entry fee. Marguerite Fortier (oversaw the kitchen) and her crew set the tables, prepared the food (hot dogs, cookies, beverages & sweets) for pre-registration and lunch.

Allen Best welcomed everyone, assigned the team leaders and explained the game to the many new players who were there for the first time. We had Fifteen (15) teams of four players each. Barb Fortini totaled the score sheets from each team and verified their accuracy. Allen subsequently announced the winners and handed out the winnings (dollars & coins).

The Top Winning Team was Sid Pomainville (Captain), Mona Carkner, Bob Tager and Sid Ghost with a score of 1480. The Second Team was Dennis Buelk (Captain), Peggy Kavich, Darrel Harman and Dennis Ghost with a score of 1340. The Third Team was Arden McConnell(Captain), Bob (no last name recorded), Paul Fortier and Bill Kavich with a score of 1120.

The TOP SCORERS  were: Sid Ghost with 470; Dennis Ghost with 450; Arden McConnell with 430.

All in all it was a fun day with many of our very new and old members trying to overcome the wacky shuffleboard challenges. Once again we must thank Allen Best and our Volunteers for enabling us to have a FUN DAY!  Thanks to Al Best for these wonderful pictures.  Please come back and join us next month for more fun and games. Ciao!

Notice: Help Needed!

The Northern District Masters Tournament will be held on March 22nd and 23rd in Deland. They need more volunteer shufflers to sign up to be PUSHERS. A Pusher just stands at the end of the court to verify scores and then send discs back to the players after they have been played. Can be a lot of fun with a chance to watch the best of the best shufflers. If you can volunteer to help, please contact John Giumarra in Deland at 386-624-6019. Thanks so much for your help. See you there!
