Aren't the slide shows from our Grand Opening Party and  Labor Day's Hot Diggity Dog game great? The club could use more volunteer photographers to take photos at our big events and learn to post them to our web site. Anyone interested  in learning more about this valued role is welcome to contact Gretchen Lindquist  by email at gem731@att.net.  We could really use some help for our events, such at the holiday parties and I/n tournaments. 

  A Letter to the Editor

Dear Friends,

You may remember me. 

Nine years on the BCOH Board of Directors.

Directed 199er games for over a dozen years.

Taught at least half of you.

Barbara Phillips, never shy about “telling it like it is.”

Our club closed for months due to the pandemic.

Online games have paid the rent here, so we did not see

our computers, dealing machines, and

refrigerators out on the street.

Have you all contributed to the rent?

Now the club has reopened for a few small games each week

while the online games continue to pay the rent.

Many of you enjoyed the Labor Day party, and we have

a Halloween and Thanksgiving party on the calendar.

Bill Riley has worn himself out directing almost 90% of the online games.

Our hard working President, Mike Linkins, has asked many

to help direct the face-to-face games 

or serve as Party Coordinator to plan and host the parties.

So many are willing to play and enjoy the parties, but not to step-up and help.

I recently was invited to play at the Lone Star club in Conroe

(a ride provided since I can’t drive). 

All I saw was many of our former players  - making coffee,

selling entries, putting boards on the tables and then putting away

after the game.  At least ten players were cheerfully working.

Hopefully, some of our players will step-up, help make coffee,

volunteer for parties, take out the trash… 

By the way - who do you think makes sure

there is toilet paper in the restrooms? 

Happy Halloween,

Barbara Phillips

  Were you there?

Were you there that day in November 2018 when the power went out?

Our intrepid I/N players used mobile phones for light in the small room.

Fun times!
