Well, tournament season has arrived and we held our spring tournament on May 3.
Evening cards starting May 22.
Tournament winners, from left, are Ruby Reid, Dieter Kalbe, Elsie Mitchell, Doreen Fretz.
We had 110 people attend coming from Kearney, Gravenhurst, MacTier, Pointe Au Baril and all the clubs in between. We served a delicious ham luncheon with homemade pies for dessert.
Thanks very much to all who worked in the kitchen and all who donated muffins and pies.
We couldn't manage without everyone pitching in and working together.
The big winner was Dieter Kalbe with 425. Elsie Mitchell came second with 411 and Ruby Reid was third with 402.
Call one was won by Doreen Fretz. Moonshots were made by: Jane Skerritt, Norma Johnson, Ruby Reid, Greta Taylor, Adrienne Firman, Ivan Conway, Ralph Wye, Dieter Kalbe, Dorothy Tennant, Marie Hudson, Betty Hume, Eunice Blanchard, and Hugh Green had two.
Share the Wealth was won by: Charles McAlister, Glenna Stevenson, Eleanor Land, Ken Burgoyne, Jurgen Tietz and Russ Ley.
Charles McAlister won the door prize, which was a beautiful afghan donated by Bernice Irvine.
Our club winners for April were: April 3- Chris Chapman, Doris Klose and Terry Wilson; April 10 - Phyllis Schmidt, Bob Bierness and Jean Pennington; and April 24 – Bernice Irvine, Doris Klose and Phyllis Schmidt.
We didn't play cards on April 17 as there was a tournament in McKellar and some of our members went to Georgian Downs with the McKellar Sunshine club.
Unfortunately I was sick so was unable to go to the Georgian Downs, but I didn't hear of any big winners.
We will be playing cards Tuesday evenings at 7 p.m. starting on May 22.
Our next potluck is on Tuesday, May 15 starting at noon.
It would be great if all our members were able to attend as this is where we discuss what is going on in the club.
If anyone has any suggestions for trips they would like to organize, please bring them to the meeting.
Birthday wishes for May go to Bruce Ernest, Bernice Irvine, and Bonnie Marriott.
We hope Ruth Bailey is feeling much better and that Norton Ainslie is recovering well from his knee surgery.
