Hi Gang


Big Thanks to Chris & Sue Gorman who sponsored Chick-fil-A for today’s lunch.

They provided Chicken Strips & Potato Salad. It was delicious.

Dick Peterson brought his famous Key Lime Pie - all gone !!!

Dick also brought us a stained glass table frame of his grandson's recent wedding photo.

His daughter Beth ’79, a talented stained-glass artist, created the frame.

Joining the gang today: Tom Konieczko, Rick Jones, Dick Heidenreich, Jeff Pulda, Jack Kelley, Terry Toll, Don Klemt, Bob Letsch, Tom Goebel, Fr Ron Crewe, Bobby Letsch, Dan DeMatthew, Ryan Andersen, Gary Schonert, Mike Hyduke, George Oteman, George Gordon, Joe Woitach, Chris Gorman, Sue Gorman, Rick Ropiak, Tom Clazmer, Dick Peterson, Kory Borek, Samantha Repischak, Cinti Sanchez, Tom Scheller, Frank D’Acquisto, Amy DeMatthew, Erin McCarville, Chris Sosnay, Kathy Poulsen.

  • We welcomed back Don Klemt from Las Vegas. Don was looking fit with a nice tan.

  • Frank D’Acquisto stopped by at 1:30 to let us know he has retired for the 4th time.

  • Tom Scheller stopped in to get a copy of Racine County Sports HOF booklet of recent SCHS inductees.


Tom Scheller ’69 Still coaching, teaching part-time and looking ageless.


Dan Bentz was at home dealing with an outdoor electrical problem. Jack Kelley tried to help. Analysis: Dan needs an electrician.

Dave Benjamin played pickleball, then went home and showered for his 1pm dr. appointment.

Leaving early: Terry Toll had the washing machine man coming at 1pm.

Gary Schonert had to take the dog for training at 1pm.

Cribbage: Bob Letsch/ George Gordon teamed vs Chris Gorman/ Don Klemt

Letsch/ Gordon won 3 out of 4

Bobby Letsch/ Tom Krug, Dan DeMatthew/ Rick Ropiak and Mike Hyduke/CW played 6 handed.

DeMatthew/ Ropiak won 2, Hyduke/ CW won 1. Letsch/Krug 0-3.

Ropiak had to leave, DeMatthew sat out and Letsch/Krug lost 1st game, won 2nd and were “Skunked” in 3rd by Hyduke/CW.

Bottom line: Bobby Letsch had another rough day at Cribbage - 3rd week in a row. He’s changed partners, chairs, cards & cribbage boards. Nothing working yet for the Rookie!
