Ten couples enjoyed a fun and tasty evening at the
Nevoli's. The weather was fine, so 4 of the 5 tables
were out in their lovely yard. We took many breaks to eat yummy
appetizers, favs were Randi's brie on fruit crackers and Bill's cosmos.
We moved on to four homemade desserts, so all left contented, even if
not rewarded with a cash prize. Taking home the money were:
Sally-low score, Merrilee and Rich and Sally and Jim tied for most
losses for a couple, Robin-most wins, tied for most couple wins-Lou and
Shirley and Sue and Charles,most buncos-Marti, high score-Robin, middle
of the road-Janis, most couple buncos-tie between Bruce and Marti and
Sue and Charles, most losses-Merrilee, traveling-Shirley.
