Just no stopping them!

Natalie Arron says the fan (in the left corner) feels like  an air conditioner.  Over the winter this fan was needed to keep the flies away and the saw dust from sticking when, Big Blue was being built.  With foresight for use in the heat, Dennis James and Bill Wessels built a frame for the fan

On Friday 18 Players participated in organized play

Looking Ahead to Next Season

The down side of no longer being Secretary is that I can no longer send "Blaster e-mails" to the entire club.  I have to ask Suzie Nunley, our new Secretary to do it for me.
Our Tournament season kicks off every year in St. George with the Huntsman World Senior Games, registration closed a month ago.  I have yet to hear from many of you, if you plan on attending this year.  If you will be in St. George during the games, please e-mail me, so that I can put you on the contact list. Each year we plan group activities  that add to the fun of attending the tournament.
Please send e-mail to:
