It's been so much fun seeing all of our snowbirds  and visiting players over the last six months!
Although many out-of-town players starting showing up in November, here are photos of those who appeared on our doorstep from January through March.







But once again it's time to say "goodbye" to all of our snowbirds who will be returning north for the Spring/Summer months.  Wishing you good months there.  We'll miss you and will look forward to your return during the next winter season.



=========================
CELL PHONE FUND UPDATE

Cell Phone 2 $4.00

Our club players must have had a lot on their minds these last three months because they forgot to turn off their cell phones and we had a run of ringing phones during our club sessions. 

Our cell phone fund is now up to $4.00.  As soon as it reaches $5.00, we will award that money to one of our players as a prize for playing the highest scoring word that begins with a "C" for "Cell phone" or "Caught you!"


=========================

OUR DIETS
START
TOMORROW!!!

We have such thoughtful and giving members at our club!  Many weeks they come in with delicious snacks and goodies for all of their fellow players to enjoy while playing their Scrabble games.

Here are photos of some of our club members who have brought in their delicious baked goodies and snacks for us to enjoy.

 
Unfortunately, I was too busy directing and never had an opportunity to take a photo of Teresa's brownies before they all but disappeared!  I was lucky to enjoy the last one!  Delicious!!!

We are so fortunate to have all of the home-baked goodies that DENA WEINSTEIN always sends in with Ian during the year!  Thank you, Dena!!!



Thank you, JEFF GARRETT for all the times you supply cookies and crackers for us! And many thanks to SALLY SCALZO for baking your delicious brownies for us again!

The last week in March was a bonanza of unexpected delicious treats!

First, JED MARTINEZ arrived
with a whole box of donuts!


Then, HOWARD PISTOL came in with a tray of assorted cakes and cookies.


Last, but definitely not least, IAN WEINSTEIN arrived with DENA's incredible home-baked cupcakes and cookies!!!!  


WHAT A YUMMY NIGHT WE HAD!!!!

Every St. Patrick's Day, it has become a tradition for ANGEL DUPREE to make her famous St. Patrick's Day potato heads which are awarded to our Scrabble players as "bonus prizes" that night. 
Even though Angel was unable to attend for our St. Patrick's Day prize night this year, she still sent in her adorable potato heads!  Thank you so much, Angel!  We miss you and hope that you'll be able to attend club again soon. Below is a photo of Angel from a previous year with her potato heads!
