It was a small turnout, but we had a lot of fun anyway. Rebekah played the shooter's role on her teams all afternoon. It was her first try, and she did a really great job! We were amazed at how accurate she was. She said later that it was a little nerve racking, but it looked to us like she was having fun and, if she was nervous, she hid it well.
Fred, Rom, Barb, Nelson, Shirley, and I rounded out the small group. The day was pleasant enough until the sun started to set, so we got in a good four hours or so of play. We hope to see a few more people coming out in the weeks to come as the days get nicer.

Tammy Hendrix of North Augusta, SC, came down with the flu about a week ago. Unfortunately, the weakening of her system led to pneumonia and hospitalized her. This in turn led to an aggressive bacterial infection. She is now on a ventilator. Her kidneys are no longer functioning adequately, so she is also on a dialysis machine. We know that everyone who knows Tammy and Larry joins us in wishing her the best possible outcome. Shirley and I went down and spent a couple of days with the family in the Intensive Care Unit at University Hospital in Augusta, GA. We may make another trip by the first of the week depending upon how things are progressing. Larry asks that everyone keep Tammy in their thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Khalid made a point of telling us that he would anxiously await seeing the write-up. Shirley says she'll never understand why people seem to take so much joy in giving us a good trouncing. Despite her best pointing efforts, either Michael would push her out or Khalid would shoot her out. And... at least to hear her version of the story, I was little help, as usual.
Actually, she and I both played okay. Michael pointed well after a long absence from the courts. Whenever he had a bad end, Khalid was able to make up the difference. He shot well, as usual, and also pointed in with his last boule on numerous occasions to take the point.
Okay, here are the results: They won the first game. We bounced back to win the second game. So far, so good. Then we played three more games and called it a day.
That's my "fair and balanced" write-up. I'm sure it will make Khalid and Michael happy-- don't you think?
