(above) Another great
BRC season is celebrated at the annual Year End Social. Organizers Sunny Howard, Karin King-Rigby, Barbara Drab ( Social Committee Chairperson) and Andrea Mehling are pictured above. Bartender Scott Murray was not available for this photo
- too many people lined up at the bar. The servers on both ends are
Diane Pogue and Cookie Langdan and the caterer (in background near the grill)
is John Skokie.
Inset - a humbled Stu Abramson displays the Volunteer of the Year Award presented to him
at the event. The outdoor season is winding down, but not over
just yet. Join us for 'Bagels and Balls' on Saturday mornings and
for Pickleball with the Lopezes on Fridays at 6:30 and on Sundays at
1:00 with the Stickels.
It is with a sense of shock and profound sadness that we report the
passing of Gerry Byrne. Gerry died
suddenly on Friday, Oct 14 at home of an apparent heart attack at age
75. Along with his wife Linda, the Byrnes have been 'regulars' at BRC
for over 30 years. Gerry served on the Board of Directors as Treasurer.
In addition to being one of the most well respected (as in 'feared')
doubles teams with Linda, Gerry was one of the most competitive players
at the club. He played smart, canny and if that wasn't enough, he was ambidextrous. All those who knew him used the words
steady and highly competent" to describe him. His quiet, diplomatic
manner along with his dry sense of humor made him extremely likable and
just good to be around. He will be particularly missed by his 'Thursday
morning crowd' at BRC. Our hearts go out to Linda, his 5
grown children and the rest of his family. Funeral services will be held on Thursday October 20 at 11a.m. at Our Lady of Mount Carmel
Church, 235 Highland Road. The family will receive guests from 10 a.m.
Pickleball at BRC: Friday evenings and Sunday afternoons.

5th, 2016; 9:00 a.m. - Fall Clean Up Day
The primary job is to take down and store the wind screens. The good
news is that they come down a lot easier and faster than they go up.
Bring your clippers (to cut the tie wraps) The landscape maintenance
vendor will be out prior to Nov.5th so there should be minimal raking
and sweeping needed. Coffee and doughnuts will be provided by the club.
