Minutes submitted by District 7 Secretary, Janet Langemeier
The weather was cool and thankfully clear and the boards were fast.MC and District 5 Team Captain. Janice Fitzgerald welcomed District 7 and play got under way.
20 players from each district competed in the first game. A different 20 played the second game. So you can see what a large undertaking it was to manage. D5 Captain , Janice,above and D7 Captain, Lynda Goggin
and co-captain, Sharyn DiChiroput in long hours and last minute scrambling to field the teams. A GREAT BIG “WELL DONE” to these great ladies!
Royal Palms RV Resort in Cathedral City was the District 5 host venue again this year. Royal Palms president, Bill Wilke was busy in the kitchen and so didn’t participate in the play.
As the CSA rules were in effect the referee’s kept a watchful eye on each game
The 9 o’clock game results slightly favored District7. At the halfway point, D 7’s Steve Piccinonno has a slight edge on D 5’s Secretary, Shirly Eager.
A one hour break in the Royal Palms club house for lunch gave D 5 a chance to plan their comeback. Many players brought their own lunch Some went to nearby eateries. Those that didn’t lunch at the club house missed the great chocolate cake supplied by D 5.
Looks like D7’s Steve P found his home
D7’s Carol Anderson, in redand D5’s past president Russel Smart, tan jacket,concentrated on their games.
District 5 picked up the pace in the second round and fought back to a tie for the 40 games. CSA tie breaker rules are as follows: since it wasn’t a continuation of a game, two players lagged for color. Play 2 frames with each player having a hammer. if the score remains tied, 2 more frames are played. If the score remains tied, each player gets 1 lag shot with no practice shot. The winner of the lag determines the games.
Talk about pressure! With all the assembled players looking on,the lucky players to play off the tie were, George Hayes, District 7 president (omnipresent red hat) and Gene Eager, District 5 president.D7’s George Hayes won the lag and played yellow.Even though they were able to score, the 1st 2 frames ended in a tie. The hammer shot in the 2nd frame of the 2nd tie-breakerand gave District 7 the win.
Gracious as always, Gene returned the plaque to D7Except for the cool weather, I heard no complaints and D5 will. I’m sure practice diligently for next years DESERT CHALLENGE.
PS: Even though they were in the area and were invited, Michelle and Barrack were no-shows.
Tomorrows games of the Desert Challenge will be hosted by District 5 and played at the Royal Palms Resort on Date Palm Drive in Cathedral City. District 5 will be looking to revenge the loss there 2 years ago that went all the way to a tie breaker.
For such an important event, maybe @Michelle or @Barrack will attend, since they will be in town.

I’ve been reading Ludlow’s Code, which was an authoritative source of conduct in the American colonies during the mid-17th Century.
I’ll explain in a moment why this is relevant to modern life here in Florida.
But first, for a little historical perspective, Roger Ludlow was an Oxford-trained lawyer who left England because the Anglican Church wasn’t judgy enough for him.
Ludlow found it much easier being a staunch Puritan in Connecticut, where he was commissioned by the courts in 1646 to established laws for the state.
The product of that four-year task was formally known as the Code of 1650, but commonly called Ludlow’s Code. The Connecticut State Library has preserved the code and made its text available online.
I perused Ludlow’s Code because it was one of the first…
