John Megge – Celebration of Life
We just wanted to send thanks to the Rendezvous Lounge crew for hosting John Megge’s celebration. The bartenders and staff went beyond expectations. Plus, their patrons put up with a smoke free day at the Vous! There are a lot of people that deserve a lot of credit for making this happen. Ralph Gibson for getting the word out and collecting monies. Andy & Kay Greathouse and Ashley Marie Delaney for running one of the smoothest tournaments ever run. Ryan Keller for making such a great poster of John for everyone to sign. Thanks to everyone that help setup, bring food, and parked a little farther away. Most importantly, thanks to our pool player community! Last night made us even more proud to be part of a group of people that care for each other as much as we do!
Please remember to hug your friends. You just don’t know when they’ll be called to play that match in the sky!

Floating Subs are available for Monday Night League!
We highly encourage captains to utilize our floating subs. Teams must pay their $10 match fee for the night, but do not need to split their end of year team winnings with them. That is much better than taking a player forfeit and possible losing valuable round points.
The floating subs are:
Margarita Makeeva – Starting handicap is an 8 – 941-735-8969
Chris Slidell – Starting handicap is a 7 – 941-376-0373
Mike Sambstrum – Starting handicap is a 7.5 – 941-320-4056
Kelvin Yow – Starting handicap is 7.5 – 941-993-6710
Lisa Baldwin – Starting handicap is 6.5
