APRIL UNIT GAME & ANNUAL AWARDS DAY: This is the game that we get our “rewards” for good play for the past year! Always a good turnout so you will want to be there to help honor our “rewarded” players.
FEBRUARY UNIT GAME RESULTS: February’s Unit Game brought out eighty-eight players (that’s twenty-two tables – just wanted to see if you’re paying attention). Overall winners were: 1st, Fred Theurkauf & George Thompson; 2nd, Bob Stoldt & Cayce Blanchard; 3rd, Betty McClelland & Mary Schefter; 4th, Pat Durand & Eileen Nelson, 5th, Frank Bartlett & Betty McClelland and 6th, Al & Sharon Appel. Flight C winners were 1st, Bob Stoldt & Cayce Blanchard; 2nd, Al & Sharon Appel and 3rd, Penny Wentworth & Eva Mroz. As mentioned in last month’s column, the Pot Luck was a winner!
NEW STATUS & NEW MEMBERS: We have two new members to our unit this reporting period, William Smith and Dianne Tomooka and we warmly welcome them both. Peggy Graue, Julie Osborne and Wally Simmons have reached Junior Master rank. Michael Daley, Nhuong Pham and Nayana Vora are new Club Masters. Tom Ludwig and Dale Manos became Bronze Life Masters. And again this month we gained two new Life Masters – Fern Dunbar and Peter Eddy. (Fern’s husband, Hank got his Life Masters last month since he retired before her and got to play a little more often). Congratulations!
70+% GAMES: CA may be experiencing a shortage of rainfall but our club has had a nice share of 70+ % games this reporting period from 2/12 – 3/13. Avie Bombard & Donald Sherman, 70.0%; Steve Sturm & Charlotte Sturm, 70.24%; Margo Coffman & Steve Rowe, 71.70%; Bill Wilson & Earl Van der Vord, 71.06%; Julie Osborne & Peggy Graue, 74.17% and the biggest game was earned by Bruce & Jan Peterson with a whopping 75.0%. Good playing, people! If you have a 70% game, please put a note to this reporter. “It ain't bragging if you can back it," said Dizzy Dean back in 1934

The monthly Stratified Open Team Game is scheduled for Monday, April 9 at 7 pm and it will be included in those extra points games that week. And of course, our Unit Game and Awards Day on April 22 as previously noted.
