First off, let me thank JIM RANSTROM for running the club this week! It's always reassuring to know everything will run smoothly in my absence.
And it looks like I should say CONGRATULATIONS to Jim as well. First Place!
And two weeks in a row now, DEREK SMITH has finished in Second Place! Way to go Derek!
RAY MIELBRECHT didn't finish in the money, but he did manage to earn more Grass Roots points!
Jim also mentioned how much he appreciated the help by Kurt and Derek for putting things away while he was busy finishing up the scoring. Thanks guys! It really helps when folks chip in to help.
Ray scored the First 24-Hand, which got him $5 and The Chicken.
And ARLYN TEED left with $5 in her hot little hands for finishing the day with THE CHICKEN.
Nobody scored the DIRECTOR's AWARD, (A-A-A-7-7) so that pot will be worth $10 next week!
And nobody scored the RAGGEDY JULIA, which had $7 added to the pot this week.
