Thursday evening Scott & Rita Boyd hosted a moonshine shuffle party at the shuffleboard courts.  Complete with munchies and adult beverages, the shuffle party afforded folks an opportunity to try their hand at shuffle without being intimidated by the "regular shufflers".  There were many first timers along with a few experienced shufflers to show them the basics.  From the smiles and laughter, it appeared the event was a success.  
I hope that some that tried their hand at it will come to our regularly scheduled shuffle next season.  The beauty of shuffle is that you can be as serious and competitive or not as you want to be.  Not all of our shufflers are tournament shufflers, but many find they do enjoy the competition.  And if this moonshine shuffle party is something you would like to see continued next fall, let us know and we will see what we can work out.  Thank you Scott & Rita for taking the lead on this. 



The quilters took on a new project after our quilt show.  We made barn quilts to take back to our homes up north or to put on our units in Leisure World.  We also made the large sampler block that will be affixed to the north side of the annex.  Great job ladies, the blocks are very colorful and are composed of many different quilt block patterns.
From left to right the quilter and block pattern are Carolyn Cornelius - friendship star, Laverne Soetebier - hourglass, Mary Shea - slip knot, Sherry Petrie - rail fence, Diane Cantu - windmill, Jan Larson - zig zag arrow and Connie Garrels - maple leaf.  The patterns on the sample upper left to bottom right are split nine patch, slip knot, card trick and friendship star.  Others also made barn quilts but they were already on their way north before we took the picture.  It was a fun project.

Another shuffleboard season has come and gone.  Once we made it into February the weather started cooperating and our numbers increased.  Before February 1, we had missed 14 days due to wet or cold and shuffled 18 days.  And on some of those days that we shuffled only the bravest souls showed up.  After February 1, we only missed one day due to wet or cold.
Our amateur shufflers continued to do quite well in the tournaments.  Clarence Thomas won 1st in consolation at the Snow to Sun over 75 singles and Galen and Mary McCrary won 2nd in consolation at the Ranchero mixed doubles.  Unfortunately our expert shufflers came up a little short in the tournaments although they were quite close a couple of times.
We wrapped up the season with hoss collar followed by lunch and beverages on March 17.  I want to thank everyone that helped during the season with getting pucks and mats out, collecting for 50/50, polishing pucks, washing the boards or doing any of the other tasks required.  Thanks to Clarence and Galen for giving lessons.  I look forward to seeing you all next season.  Have a great summer.
