Life Master Celebration - Rose City
Rose City DBC celebrated two milestones this week.
- Mary Bartley achieved the rank of Diamond Life Master.

Sandy O’Bannon organized the event with a fajita bar and two awesome cakes. Seven tables helped celebrate as well as a few others that joined in.
Thanks to all that participated. It was very special.

Regional – Comments from the President of Unit 225
The Regional at Longview was well attended and went smoothly and despite the holiday week and inclement weather.
The planning and execution was excellent thanks to all the effort expended by Shirley and Mike. Thank you Scott for managing the different games with your team and ensuring things went smoothly and efficiently.
The table count exceeded expectations and people from all our clubs and neighboring states made the groups diverse and well attended.
The refreshments provided by the various clubs was well received and enjoyed by all. The caddies did a great job and made themselves transparent to make things go well.
In summary the whole event off very well and again I want to thank the members of the board who were present, the club directors for their encouragement and participation and especially to Mike, Shirley and Scott to make it a grand success.
Hopefully we will repeat this again in late July for the sectional tournament in Tyler.
