(It started by) joining the club. We do this just for fun.
What’s your favorite part of playing?
Companionship, fun and camaraderie.
What’s the most difficult aspect or the most frustrating?

Sarasota Yacht Club.

Omelets with cheese and ham.
If you could play bocce ball with any person dead or a live, who would it be and why?
Abe Lincoln, because I admire him.
