2023 New Years Rally

TS New Year’s Rally Article 4 and last of the series for the New Year’s Rally

Sunday morning was left open for rest since this was the day after New Year’s night celebration and the late hour of 10:00 for us seniors.  

Our traditional lunch of cabbage for cash and peas for good fortune, with chicken and cornbread was delicious.  A special thanks goes to Lisa Merriman for the pot full of scrumptious cabbage she brought.  We had our judging for the “Pea Off” which was very close, one point, they were both good.  The winner was new member Sandy Frazier but close second was Sue Kelly, who said she voted for Sandy. I apologize for not getting the picture for Sandy’s award presentation but I was busy counting votes.  

After the great meal, we played pool which was located down stairs in the meeting room.  We played modified 9 ball, and some had a great time.  Others pleasantly played and were good sports, but Patti and Duane had a ball.  No not any of us were pros and mostly the women didn’t even know how to hold the cue, including me, but played anyway to show support to their hubby.  Winners of the tournament were Jim and Tina Hoover.  They were presented a block of wood which had been carved out and had a 9 ball inside which Polk had made.  Quite unique. He also had made several of the wooden puzzles we used on the second night of the rally. This is the only time in the history of the club have we had a pool tournament.  We’ve done a lot of things but this is a first.  Wish more of you had been here to enjoy the good fellowship and fun.  Linda

2023 New Years Rally

TS New Year’s Rally Article 3

New Year’s Day started out with a hearty breakfast of sausages, biscuits, and eggs.  Since I was busy scrambling eggs, I didn’t get any pictures.  The day was a rest day after two days of tours and knowing we were meeting at a local restaurant for our evening meal and then more to do.  Everyone rested, shopped and did their thing for the day.  

That evening we enjoyed a wonderful time of entertainment with a headline of well-known entertainers, jokester James Smith, singers Tina Hoover, Ida Cook, and Polk Brian, with a super-star hailing from West Monroe and new member Raymond Frazier. Everyone did a great job and we all certainly enjoyed the music and jokes.  Afterwards, we drew for “Dirty Santa” gifts and had lots of fun stealing gifts.  It seems Joe Kelly’s handmade cutting boards took the winning exchanges.
