Still waiting for the pics. There is no excuse now- You won't be scaring the opposition. Just us.

When JT comes up this way for XOBA in July, it will be peak shuffelboard season at the old folks home. Those shaved legs should be a hit with the lady spectators. Hmmm. . . maybe I'll shave up too. . .we could enter the doubles tournament. We could have a shuffelboard sub forum here at 50+. Yeah. . .that's the ticket.

Sorry to hear that, JT. Neither of us had any luck with the Senior Games this year. Oh well.
