Visitation had to be cancelled the first two weeks in January due to the weather. It just to cold to play at Holiday the first week and rain fell this Wednesday when we were due in Clermont.
hopefully things will be back to normal next week.

Leesburg visited us on Dec. 6th with 5 teams. We had 7 teams participate in the fun afternoon of shuffling.
However, the best part was the food provided after the matches. A special shout out goes to Steve Smith for his chili, Wayne Carpenter’s peanut butter cookies, Jane Sackmann’s deviled eggs, and to whomever made the vegetable kabobs.
Thanks to everyone for the wonderful feast – I can’t vouch for the chicken, because it was all gone by the time this reporter went through the line. The people I saw eating it all had smiles tho.

Pauline Dulac

Our Hawthorne Shuffleboard Club would like to say “Pauline DulacTHANK YOU” to our Secretary Pauline Dulac and her helpers for coordinating lunches during our tournaments throughout the 2016-2017 season. Her culinary skills were very well received by all participants who traveled near and far!

We’re lucky that she plans to continue her efforts for the 2017-2018 tournament season because she also enjoys playing the great game of shuffleboard with the rest of us. We appreciate her dedication in this respect.

To aid her in this endeavor to make this a success there will be a sign-up sheet posted at the courts a few days prior to the tournament dates indicating what club members may be able to contribute. For example, brownies, cupcakes or cookies would be suitable.

Also we need to keep in mind that our help to lend-a-hand in the cleanup whenever possible would be greatly appreciated.

Doris Hanke — Next Northern District Hall of Fame Member

Doris Hanke has completed her quest to get 250 Northern District points and will become our next Hall of Fame member. Northern District points have been accumulated since 2003. Doris would have been eligible to qualify for the Hall of Fame earlier, but they didn’t count any of the tournaments she placed in prior to 2003. We all congratulate Doris on her long and successful career. Many more wins still lie in front of our “YOUNG” lady.
