A small but energetic group of 32 hopefuls turned out to challenge the difficult Sun City boards last Monday. The boards have recently been “diamond ground” and don’t play as well as expected. I understand that this is a work in progress so time will tell.
Due to to small number of entries, the games were finished in 2 days. Sadly, this only gave us 2 chances to enjoy the lunches made available by the club. Hot dogs with chili or plain, home made sandwiches, salads, veggies, chips, drinks, and delicious cakes and cookies.
Liz Backus, ATM, helped by club members, got us started on time. We found that a little extra dressing made the boards more consistent and most players, especially the winners, were satisfied with the conditions.
