Men and women at their best at Eden Roc

by Dean Grattidge   District 7 Reporter
Good numbers for this event! There were 36 men and 36 ladies. This took place from April 20 to April 22. District rules applied. The two ATM’s who supervised the games and created and maintained the charts were Lynda Goggin and Sharyn DiChiro. Good job!   George Hayner was head ref, as Helen Noeltner attended the scorekeeping chores. A New sponsor stepped forward for this meet, and that was Smart and Final Groceries at Florida and Kirby in Hemet. We do thank them!
It’s always a pleasure to share good news with you: Two ladies came up with their first winning spot in a
tournament. They were Bobi Davis, from Heather Estates and Lorraine Donahue from El Grande, enjoying her first season in shuffleboard! Congratulations, ladies!   Great lunches were served each day.

“ROB”

FullSizeRender(1)

When we stopped to see Rob while we were in Mesa, he wasn’t in his room. We found him in the therapy room working his new knees. He already has 120 degrees with the first one and 119 with the second. And as you can see, he has remarkably little swelling. All this adds up to his being sent home earlier than expected. He said he is anxious to get back to work on his many shuffleboard jobs. Can’t keep a good man down!

Jay Davidson Reports Re His Drive Home from San Benito, TX Goodwill Games!!

The Celebration Is Over! The Adventure Begins

Marolyn & Jay Davidson CSA PresidentIMG_3856 Dale & Sheila MondayRobinson Robbie & MargaretMesa, AZ. Luckily Marolyn and I (far left) were able to dodge all the severe weather in Texarkana for four days and have a great visit with her best friend Glenda in nearby Winthrop, Ark.
First day on the way home took us to Amarillo Texas. Nice ride through several small towns. Second day was different. Since we would gain 2 hours, we decided to go all the way to Mesa. 11 hours and 15 or so rainstorms later, we checked in to our favorite motel and collapsed for the night.
Had a nice breakfast with our favorite people, Dale and Sheila Monday (center) and their grandson at the “Wild Berry”, and caught them up with what they missed in Texas. Sheila’s back is a little better.
Right down Main Street from there, we stopped to visit Rob Robinson, (Rob and Margaret, right) who is recovering from knee surgery. You…

Although the AC overdid it a little, the competition was hot enough. Boards were fast and required little sprinkling. Several games were decided on the last shot. Notably, Lynda Goggin won 2 games that way. Yellow can be important!
Here in Hemet, 16 frame games take a very long time. 2 1/2 hours or more. As a result, on the second day the games were started early and still ran late. We will address this for next years games. Suggestions?
Congratulations to the winners. A National Pin can only be won once, and this year, Val McDougal and Phil Spencer are the winners!
