Missed the Strawberry Festival

Postby Alan Millhone on Mon May 15, 2006 9:44 pm

Hello everyone:

Mr. Alex called me last week and asked if I was going ? I had a major conflict this past week-end. I am the Board President for our local Habitat For Humanity Chapter and this past week-end we had our yearly auction. This past Saturday night our auction thru donations and auctioned items raised $13,000.00. Our first item was a beautiful patchwork that contained an American Flag,etc. and our guest auctioneer for that item was former POW and Wirt County, W.Va. native Ms. Jessica Lynch. Not only did she auction off the item she also signed it.

I have read all the festival postings and note the " B" group was kinda heavy with entrants ? I have a lack of p.p. knowledge, and don't possess the best crossboard skills, but still would have entered the Masters. Rest assured if you come to our ACF Nationals next month we will use the ACF ratings and have a 'seeding' committee to make sure you are properly placed as an entrant. Mr Burton called my home and left me two messages inviting me to come. I am sorry I couldn't make it :-)

This coming week is the N.C. Tourney and I most likely cannot make it either. A Thursday and Friday makes it difficult for many players still working to miss two business days during the week to attend. I plan on going to the Pa. Open as a 'tune-up' for our National Tournament .

Mr. Ron King called me Sunday morning and indicates he will be coming to Medina,Ohio to enter our Nationals. So if any of you want a chance to play the top two rated players in the World, plan on coming to Medina,Ohio and enter the Masters ! Rest assured there will be plenty of stiff competition in all three groups.
