Hilites (Wk 18 of 25 – 7/29/14)

Attendance bounced back up to 48 players this week.  Thanks to David S for running the session AND for juggling the pairings in Lee’s absence.  Next week Tisha B’Av falls on Tuesday, so our session has been rescheduled to Thursday evening.  Please make a note in your calendars.  Welcome back after an extended absence to David L <gasp>, after a shorter absence to Rachelle and after a much shorter absence to Shirley.  Welcome also to first-time visitors, Marsha Caplan and Mordechai Ross.
