Al Peterson continues his metoric rise, intent on becoming the 2014-2015 club champion.  Monday saw 18 players and an on-time finish - sort of.  Ellie Stowe joined us as she usually has.  Ellie states that Box Car is like family to her.  See how we're all doing on this page.

September 30, 2014

One of our founding members, Jack Stowe, passed away on Sunday, September 28, 2014.  Jack received his ACC Silver Award this last year and had his ring made for his wife, Ellie.  We're all saddened that such a gentleman and loving person is no longer with us.

Monday night we were even!  Don Grater took first place having won the first eight games and had his grand slam spoiled by Don Hanson.  Al Peterson continues on his streak and holds top honors with the club at this time.  Check it out here.

September 23, 2014

Traveler Todd Sampson dropped in to take top card last night.  Though we were odd at 19 players we finished on time for ten games!  Thanks everyone for stepping it up.

See who qualified here

September 16, 2014

Last night we had 21 players.  Doug Hilton had high card with a 17 and Page Ramos returned to play, immediately taking a top position with a 15 card.  More results, percentages and standings are here.

Monday, September 8, 2014 was the first tournament of the 2014-2015 36-tournament season.  Congratulations to Al Peterson for his 16 card, winning 8 of the 9 games!  See how others did here

Monday the 25th was the last night of summer play and our last Best 6 of 10 competetion.  The overall winner was Gina Watson with an 88-point total.  Congratulations, Gina!  That result and the rest of the scores are all here

REMINDER: No play on Labor Day, September 1, 2014.

The 2014-2015 Season begins on Monday, September 8, 2014.  Be sure to have your Grass Roots annual fee and your club dues paid.  Grass Roots games are only valid from the time you pay your dues.  So, Monday will give you the full 36-week season from which to earn your maximum points towards lifetime goals.

August 19, 2014

Last night was a great celebration of Jack P. Stowe's Silver Award for reaching 2,500 Grass Roots points in scheduled tournament play.  Ellie accepted the award on Jack's behalf as he is quite ill at home.  

Elaine Lambert received her award for the 28 hand she had in play August 11th.

Box Car had 24 players that included two new members, Howard Mann and Rick Salerno, who also brought his wife, Christy, to play.  Only four players had "qualifying cards" (12 or more game points) yet two had eleven and a whopping seven had ten cards.  Here's the good stuff.

August 16, 2014

Monday the 11th saw 16 competitors.  Of those 16, seven had qualifying cards!  And of those, Tom Chew plugged away at a Grand Slam and got foiled in game nine by Jack Throne.  A lot of fun!  Tom still had high card, but it wasn't as "glorious" as a slam would have been, for sure. AND... Elaine Lambert had a 28 hand!  Lookie here.  See what the Best 6 of 10 for the summer looks like and all of our other weekly scores.

July 30, 2014

Twenty-two players filled the room on Monday.  We had Rick and Howard again and Patti Ride as guests and Bill Clardy visiting from Arizona.  We all had fun.  Scores here.

Monday June 30th was Best 6 of 10 week four.  Results and standings of participants are here.  Monday the 7th of July was crazy doubles - a lot of fun!  Many of you missed it but since it seems most popular, the August doubles night may be a crazy doubles night.  Members will be polled about their preference over the next few weeks!

June 25, 2014

The Webmaster's vacation of two weeks sure helped in getting him refreshed but Box Car's site didn't get refreshed.  Until now!  Summer singles play on the 16th and 23rd results are here.  

The annual Box Car Peggers' General Membership meeting resulted in the election of three new members to the board.  Al Peterson will be Box Car's first ever Vice President.  Stephanie Slavin will assume the position of Secretary from Mark Benge and Gina Watson, appointed Treasurer earlier in the year, will take a two year stint.  See the Governanace page to learn more.

Dareld Lambert wasn't going to just stand by as his wife got a Grand Slam last week. No sirree! Dareld Lambert got a GRAND SLAM this Monday!  Elaine, however, didn't see fit to complement her husband's accomplishment with a pearls-winning card.  See what else happened here.

April 29, 2014

Monday was a night of extremes!  Elaine Lambert got a GRAND SLAM while her husband, Derald, won the pearls from Jeannie James, who has had them for several months.  Additionally, Angelo Torrise of Placer Peggers  missed a grand slam by one game while Box Car club director, Keith Johnson, and Doug Hilton each missed pearls by one game. View the exciting (and embarrassing) results.

Our GRNT held last Saturday, April 26, 2014 at The Station Restaurant was a smashing success!  Thanks to everyone who participated!  Page Ramos finished with top card showing 30 game points.  Congratulations, Page!  B.J. Flora and Keith Johnson each qualified with 25 points and Jeannie James got 24 points.
