In Peachtree City, I was greeted by Councilwoman Vanessa Fliesch. I had a nice conversation with her about the park where we were and about her originally being from Vineland NJ and even Philadelphia. The game was held at the ‘Gathering Place’, a community center in the park. It was a 10 O’clock game, and the players brought in food for lunch. I played with Ken Parker and things went very well from the beginning and we won with a 73% game. After 4 rounds, we broke for lunch. A lot of the food was homemade goodies. I got to spend a lot of time talking to the players which was good. Jeanette Keener is the director and does a nice job. After the game I drove 40 miles north to Ina Parry’s non-LM game in Atlanta. Bob and Barbara Heller met me there and we arrived as the game was breaking up. I still was able to speak to many of the players of this 19 table game.
