My own trio did fine with the first game, but we fell apart in the 2nd - as did my shooting which Mark said was right on, but splintered at the end.
Enjoy the weekend - a tad rainy for Detroit...

But not one to claim an easy victory, he told us: "Even a blind squirrel finds a nut every now and then."

My own game went rather nicely with Nancy rolling in close-point after close-point leaving Mark/Tim/Tee to try shooting out her boule.
Afterwards, we did some pointing/shooting practice. Speaking of practice, Buzz and Tee have their own sets (of 6 boules) and they've been practicing all of the time. It shows!

Mike Says Goodbye
Abu & Buzz Round
More Game Playing
Mike will be leaving us in the next few weeks, off to the sunny climes of Florida. In this short interview (above) he comments on his friends, his prospects, and offers a very sobering parting message for all.

My own game, we were playing very tight, with point for point exchanges. Raphael even came through with one of his classic push-pointings. But at the end, our pointing fell off, and it came down to my making a tir-au-fer shot (just grazed it).

Pat has won so many games that his average reflects a player who has won every game at 13/12 (2 points) - not bad!
If Pat's average goes higher than 2.00, it'd mean that overall, he's won all of his games with a spread of 13/11; 13/10 and so on.

It was a total disaster! Pat; Abu; Tim C. ripped through our defenses and mocked our offenses with round after round of punishing points. Skunked! Then a re-match (7 point) also pushed us into the gutter with a 13/10 win for Pat's team.
Eric did very well indeed, with his victory against Mark & Rob (13/6).
Abu was lending me advice on team composition. But I think almost any team has a chance of winning - as long as luck and strategy are in play. Today, Lady Luck didn't shine upon us.
