Club 34 met for its final time yesterday with 20 and 11 in attendance. We accomplished a lot for this past year and look forward to more expansion in 2019. We never know when a new member of our Family will surprise us with a visit.
Yesterday was no exception. An old friend dropped out of the sky and surprised us with a visit. Beth Byrne is known to many of us but we havent seen her for a very long time. She used to come to Club 34 back in the day when Penny Baker was running things. So you are talking about 15 years. Beth received a Scrabble revelation not too long ago and decided that she really missed it. So she appeared yesterday and plans to see a lot of us in 2019. Beth is from Long Beach, plays a lot of tournament bridge and is retired I think from the equestrian business. She either races, trains or breeds horses, not sure which, but we are so glad that she will be a part of our extended family.
Next week I will issue my annual State of the Union address. So stay tuned. I expect a lot more exciting stuff for Club 34 next year. And DONT forget!!! Club 34 will make its inaugural appearance into Club 34 Friday on January 4 at 11am until 3pm. I hope we have a good showing for our first Friday session ever. Our Club will certainly be the only Scrabble club in the world that meets 3 times a week. I hope it will become a huge success with old established players as well as new ones we have not met yet.
We will see all of you next year. Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year 2019.
