A MEMORABLE SHOT REVIEWED
A few years ago, Bob Comford and Larry Fowler were playing Ron Nurnberger and Gilles Emard. Gilles had two yellow 8’s,and one seven, with a black kitchen, 33 points. Larry had the hammer. He shot to take off both 8’s and hope for the best. When the dust cleared, Larry Fowler had a black 8, and a 7, with a yellow 10 off, 25 points to the good. From 33 points for Gilles Emard to 25 points for Larry Fowler resulted in a 58 point swing on his hammer. Pretty good for at that time, Larry Fowler was still a District Amateur. Thanks to Ron Nurnberger’s great memory, helped by the fact that Ron sent that news back then to “The Shuffler”, as he does occasionally yet.

. Veteran players will remember John Jandovitz, age 90, who passed away November 25 in Fairfield Glade, TN. John and Gloria played for years out of Ellenton Gardens before relocating to River Isles, and even later to TN. John set a good example for us all in keeping a record of every game including partner,opponents, scores, etc. We extend our sympathy to Gloria and her family. John is at rest in The East Tennessee State Veterans Cemetary in Knoxville, TN. His spirit is with the Lord above and his memory remains among his many friends.
. Also, all players note that Palmetto will offer NO lunch Dec. 6-9.
