20 and 8 showed up yesterday. The impending rains and some Scrabble tournaments this coming weekend kept a few members from showing up. Lorry Higgins, Club 34’s all around gofer, came with lots of goodies in the form of hand sanitizers for all of us to use during the day. Our newly appointed health czar, Dr. Najat Reikes, was not in attendance so Lorry took over for the day.
Next Tuesday will be an important one for Club 34. I will ask Najat to address the Club and speak about some preventative measures we can all take part in to try to prevent further episodes of illness and infection. With that being said, I was informed that Desiree, our youngest member, is seriously ill. We all at Club 34 wish her a speedy recovery. Club 34 is not the same without her presence and delightful personality. All of us look at her with great admiration and strive for her level of activity at the tender age of 96 so get well soon Desiree!!!
Next Tuesday will also be important for another reason. Our new website is up and running. I implore all of you to take a look at it before our next meeting. I will talk about some of its new features and go over the new prize structures for the Club. You wont want to miss that. I want to thank David Postal, Lorry Higgins and Amnon Meyers in helping make this possible. I hope that in the future it will attract alot of new players who want to join our Family..
What would a Tuesday and Club 34 be without another funny happening. As all of you know, players place their score cards in the little baskets on my table after they finish their games. This is possible so that I may do the matchups for the next game. Yesterday I was missing one score card. The matchups were not even. Jeff and I were going crazy. Lo and behold, one of the members had placed HIS scorecard in his pocket!! Dont ask me why this happened. Long ago I had stopped trying to figure out why this particular member does what he does but he is loved nonetheless…
