Welcome back players!!!!!
We had 27 players with 28 seats available. Because three registered players were unable to make it, we didn’t have any standbys. That may not be the case for October. I will try and get a fifth table, which will allow us to seat 35 players for our October event. Because of social distancing, every other table is not in use. This limits the amount of cash players they can have. As of this typing, they did away with their 6:00 pm tournament, so we had several players asking if they could join our tournament, which normally would be great. However, I had to let them know this was a private, charity tournament. I am worried if I open it up, our regular players may not get a seat. I don’t think we can get a sixth table, so players may have to register early to secure a seat.
Everyone said they felt safe while playing based on Derby Lane’s precautions. I also plan to add a November event, probably Saturday, November 07th, so we can still give away $1,000 for our championship event. If we can have that November event, we will have 28 players qualifying for January’s event.
I still do not plan on serving food, because we still can’t have food near the poker tables, which limits the amount of seating, while eating.
Congratulations to Brian Carpenter for winning August’s event. Tom Dudley came in second, and Bill Ferguson was third. Thanks Bill for donating a large portion of your winnings back to Special Olympics.
Cliff Roberts won $130 from the 50/50 raffle, giving half of his winnings back to Special Olympics. Patrick Queen, Larry Brame and Kyle Massey won a $25 gift card each, which were given away as door prizes.
Our next event will be Saturday, October 03rd, again at 5:30pm. Because of limited seating, I don’t plan on supporting outside charities at this point. Right now seating is limited to 28 players. Only players that have played at previous events will be allowed to play. I am currently closing the event to new players.
2020 Events: October 03, and December 05th. The tournaments will begin at 5:30pm. The Tournament of Champions event will be Saturday, January 09, 2021.
Due to Covid-19, we are limited on players, so no new players we be accepted at this time.
