Another great turnout for the 7/22 BBQ! We fed 44 hungry appetites after the games and everyone seemed to enjoy the increased and delightful menu. We did run out of mesquite chicken filets, but there was plenty of food left for take-outs and our usual donation to the Oakland Women's Shelter that Dorothy collected. Steve Dietrich was our guest chef and gets a big round of applause for keeping up with all the hungry players. Thanks, also, to John & Paulette Crane for the cleanup & loading help! Mark Shimamoto brought his delightful guests who enjoyed the BBQ so much that they gave a $$ donation to support our BBQ's. One of his guests, Leo, will be 99 years young next month and even had seconds on the BBQ Beans! Come again, Leo & friends! With only 5 games left in the schedule and all the tournaments & vacations coming up (including a Monday, August 11th date for the 50's) the next BBQ's are difficult to plan. Here's the

Another great turnout for a delicious BBQ even though 2 teams were missing! We served 36 players and guests including grandkids and everyone feasted until all the food was gone (with a little coaxing). Mario was the guest chef and did a super job in Chip's absence. Debbie and Dorothy took leftovers and bread to the Oakland Women's Shelter - what kindness!!!

The Below CPR training has been re-scheduled for next week Apr 29,30 & Thur May 1.
All HSS Players:
Our teammate Steve Brown has arranged for representatives from the Hayward Fire Department (HFD) to come out prior to our games next week to provide us with a presentation on the latest techniques in CPR application. Captain Don will cover how to use an AED (Automated External Defibrillator), where to place the pads, how to follow the prompts and so forth. Steve will also go over briefly about CPR and how its focus now is on compressions, as well as covering the topic on how to help the EMRs once they are dispatched.
These CPR training sessions will be held before the start of all games beginning with:
60+ Games Tuesday…….April 22, 2014 - 9:30am
70+ Games Wednesday…April 23, 2014 - 9:30am
50+ Games Thursday……April 24, 2014 - 9:30am
You may attend any or all of these CPR training sessions. Recent league events have shown that knowing what to do in a cardiac emergency can be vital to saving the life of a league participant or someone at home or to someone in our community.
