Hi Clare, thanks for the invite, we are hosting a dinner tonite so will try to meet some of you folks another time . I am still working as a Real Estate Broker so time is sparse and my wife and I continue our work from Florida . I also need to develop a better game before I face the pros.
Hi Clare, once again congrats for your win in Peterborough, particularly after just making the top six cut and then coming out on top. Last time I've heard of that happening, correct me if I'm wrong, was Jason Beierling coming up from last-to-qualify 16th spot to win it all at Tavistock in 2006.

Well I suppose not, your a much more affable and sociable player, as I find most crokinole players tend to be. Still maybe I'll get that saying put on a T-shirt of my own just to get some edge into my play.
See you at the next one Clare.
