News Flash:

Those that attended our Playoff/awards/Elections/BBQ really enjoyed the playoffs on a Saturday over playing it on a Tuesday night. The new executive will discuss the possibility of next season playing on Saturday. The winners will be posted on the website under Tournaments in the next week or two.

I decided not to run for Club President for the 2022 – 2023 seasons. My wife of 63 years needs my constant care 24/7 and I felt that I could not give you the same commitment that you came to expect, over the 22 season that I served as President.

I was asked and accepted the position of Vice- President, so you haven’t got rid of me yet, and despite my declined in throwing horseshoes, I will continue to play, probably in the “D” division, where they all seem to have a lot of fun.

I am happy to report that Gary Branning accepted the position of President, which he will begin in 2022.  I know he will do a great job and look forward working with him to make the transition as smooth as possible. He will also take on the role as statistician and I will show him how I did it, he has more knowledge of excel than I have, I am sure he will find a better way, but at least he has the base to work with.

Our Treasurer has put together a proposed role that each member of the new executive will be expected to do, which will relieve some of the work load off Gary, it will be brought up at the next meeting, which will take place before the end of the year.” I should have done it years ago.”

News Flash From Club President Ken Condie & Executive Member/Webmaster Gary Branning

Our new website is now up and running, it is still a work in progress.

Even if you have checked out the different titles, keep checking as changes are continually made to improve the information.

To all members past and present, checkout the History of our club, from 1978 and currently to 2012.  This will be continually updated, and changes made. I hope you enjoy going back in time, to see how our club started and how it has progressed over the years.

Gary Branning our new webmaster spent hundreds of hours plus to build the site and update all the information. I have spent the same number researching and improving the pictures and information.

If you find any errors or information you would like to add, please let me know. Old members; if you have pictures during your time with the club and they are not in the History book, please send them to me by mail or email.

As for this coming season, we will just have to wait and see how we can control the COVID-19 virus, remember it takes all of us to defeat it.

Stay safe and Healthy.

Ken
