The usual crew showed up to clean-up and prepare the courts for the Thursday Morning Four-Play. We only had Thirteen (13) shufflers show up to meet the challenge. It was very hot (87 degrees) and humid (100%) by 9:00 am this morning. After we each played four matches, only Rex Galusha ended up winning all four. Congratulations Rex! Try to come back next week to meet this challenge. Ciao!
I found the obituary for Mona and thought you would like to see it.

Friday night we had our June Pot Luck Dinner. Thanks to Tom Carbonell (President) for setting up the tables on Thursday. The usual set up crew came in early to decorate the tables and make the iced tea/lemonade. Club members began arriving around 5:00 pm with their delectable goodies such as Tom Carbonell’s pork loin, chicken, desserts, salads, baked beans, sweet potatoes and more.
We had approximately Twenty-Three (23) people attending. Tom Carbonell announced that it was George Karras’s birthday and we all wished George a Happy Birthday. Tom also announced that the courts will be refinished sometime the end of July or beginning of August, depending on the weather. Joan Best collected for the 50/50 and Bonnie pulled the winning ticket. Congratulations to Cathy Kennedy for winning the 50/50 pot. Joan then led us in the Pledge of Allegiance and a mealtime prayer. We all lined up to enjoy the sumptuous meal. When dinner and socializing was done, we all cleared the tables and chairs. Not enough people were able to stay for Bunco. Hope to see you all back again next month. Ciao!
The usual clean up crew showed up early to clean and prepare the courts for play. We had Twenty-one (21) ardent shufflers show up for the challenge. We each played the usual four matches, drawing a new partner and court after every match. We congratulate Rex Galusha, Rod Lewis (Deland), Randy and Bonnie Radke for each winning all four of their matches. Hope to see you all back here for next week’s challenge. Ciao!
I just received a very sad phone call from Mouse Wolven who has been taking around the clock care of Mona during her illness. Mona Carkner passed away last night after a long courageous struggle fighting cancer. We are so sorry for Mouse’s loss and convey our sincerest condolences to their family, friends and community. Tomorrow Mouse and his son will escort Mona’s body north to upstate New York where she will be interred on Wednesday. Mouse told me that he will return to Florida at a later date. This was all the information that I have at this time. Mona, who brought so much joy to everyone around her, will be sorely missed.
Hi Everyone…just a reminder that our June Pot Luck Dinner is scheduled for this Friday, June 15th. Last month we did not have enough people sign up and so we were forced to cancel the dinner. PLEASE SIGN UP IN THE CUE HOUSE, or send me a note that you are coming. Like Everyone has always said, we all have to eat dinner, why not enjoy it with friends? Hope to see you there!
The C/M S crew started early to squeegee rain puddles off the courts. Twenty-Three (23) committed shufflers showed up for the morning competition. We each drew partners and played four matches. Congratulations to Dennis Buelk and Tom Rimmer for winning all four of their matches. Y’all come back next week. See you then. Ciao!
