Steve's young son, Nathan, came with him from Charlotte on Sunday to play with our group for the first time since he was with us back in January. His dad had just purchased him some brand new JB Junior competition boules in a 70.5/650 size and he was eager to try them. He played very well indeed. Sue Wien (just visible behind Bob in the last photo) commented that Nathan played a very controlled game for a young man his age, and I think she was right on the money with her assessment.
Tom Cearley and his son, Wesley, also made an apperance but were not able to stay long enough to play. They were in Winston-Salem visiting with Tom's father-in-law, Ronnie Rierson, who is recovering from recent major surgery. I'm happy to report that Ronnie is doing great and should be back with us in the not-too-distant future. Wesley had his girlfriend, Marcie, with him and the two of them watched the play for a while. He promised to bring her back to try her hand at playing before too long.
