We haven’t officially entered the summer season yet, but we are halfway through the regular season matches here at Colonial 2018. We haven’t had the turnout that we used to have in year’s past, but the talent here is still undeniable. It is still fun to see situational shots being pulled off by the players, shots that the average player doesn’t see or consider. It’s no fluke, these guys are that good! Friday nights are difficult for many folks during the summer with commitments or plans, so the sparse attendance is really not that surprising. It’s still going to come down to the playoffs, and qualifying will be directly related to your games played. This year’s playoffs will probably include most of the roster anyway, as we are down to 16 regulars. However, come playoff time, you can rest assured the folks will be here for singles play and a chance for the title.

This week, Nick L. was top dog, second time in three weeks. A record of 4-1 and a night high 17 ringers with 3 doubles put him at 11.8 ppg, a hair more than our leader Anthony Immordino. Ant has been consistent as a clock, with a winning record, in spite of playing with lower seeded players as partners. This week he tossed 14 ringers for an 11.6 ppg. average. He seems to get the most out of his partners and that is an admirable trait indeed. Jeff Onyszczuk got a late start this year but has settled in nicely. He finished at 2-2 with 10 ringers and a 10.75 ppg average. Also on a bit of a tear as of late, Harry Hampton was 4-1 with 14 ringers, two doubles and a 10.6 ppg. average. He sits at sixth overall.

This week, Jordan provided food for us and we thank him for his efforts. Next week we are in need of a caterer. If you haven’t taken a turn yet, let me know during the week. Also, the pits need a little sprucing up so if possible, next Friday before we play, I’d like to scrape the sides and fill in the holes. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
