Revel in ‘Glory Days’ tonight

The Springsteen Experience

June 29 | 7:30 p.m.

Amphitheater Stage

Sponsors: Golden Age Foundation, 

Financial Partners Credit Union

Leisure Worlders and their guests were “Born to Run” to the Amphitheater tonight at 7:30 p.m. to rock out with The Springsteen Experience at the second Amphitheater show of the season.

Bruce Springsteen is one of the most prolific song writers and storytellers of our time. With such a large and eclectic catalog of music spanning more than four decades, The Springsteen Experience—led by Josh Schreiber and the cast and crew—will perform a high-octane, chronological journey recreating the most memorable moments and stage interactions throughout E Street concert history. 

From 1973 through the height of Springsteen’s Fame in the ‘80s and beyond, this theatrical production accurately replicates the near circus-like appeal of an authentic Springsteen concert, including vintage equipment and stage sets, multiple costume changes and note-perfect renditions of Springsteen’s most popular hits and lyrical gems. 

The repertoire includes  the iconic “Born to Run,” “Detroit Medley,” “Adam Raised a Cain,”
“Sherry Darling,” “Hungry Heart,” “Glory Days,” “Born in the USA” and more.

Seniors should be wary of online prescriptions

The Orange County Senior Citizens Advisory Council, along with the Office on Aging, is issuing a warning about the dangers of purchasing online medication.

Fake prescription pills are easy to purchase and widely available online. Fake pills are often sold on social media and e-commerce platforms—available to anyone with a smartphone.

Criminal drug networks are mass-producing fake pills and falsely marketing them as legitimate prescription pills, according to the federal Drug Enforcement Agency. The fake pills often contain fentanyl or other illicit drugs and can be deadly, according to DEA officials.

The Office on Aging recommends that seniors learn how to buy prescription drugs safely on the internet by visting www.FDA.gov/BeSafeRx.

Alzheimer’s OC launches Memory Support Team in LW

Alzheimer’s Orange County, with the support of numerous partners, will officially roll out the Leisure World Seal Beach Memory Support Team (MST) this month.

The MST will provide a variety of memory support programs and services to LWSB shareholders and families concerned about memory loss and/or cognitive decline.  The MST is comprised of dementia care specialists and Care Team navigators who will team up with residents to support their efforts to live productively and independently.  

The team was awarded grant money to offer a variety of free educational classes to Leisure World residents, which will commence this month. They include:

  11 Tips for Successful Solo Aging in Your Home: July 10, from 10-11 a.m. in Clubhouse 3, Room 2.

• Brain Boot Camp (a two-week series): July 17 and 24, from 10-11:30 a.m. in Clubhouse 3, Room 2.

• Keeping Your Home Safe 101: Aug. 14, from 10-11 a.m. in Clubhouse 3, Room 2.

• Worried About Your Memory? Normal Aging vs. Warning Signs: Sept. 13, 10-11 a.m. in Clubhouse 3, Room 1. 

The MST will offer support, education and care coordination for those living with dementia, as well as for care partners in Leisure World. 

Services will include brain health education, home safety assessments, caregiver support and education, medication reviews, behavioral symptom assistance, planning for future needs, health care directives, and linking people to appropriate resources. 

Many of the above services will be accessed via phone or virtually (Zoom), at the LWSB Social Services Office, at events at LWSB clubhouses, and in the homes of individuals and families living with memory loss. Enrollment for in-home services will require a no-fee clinical assessment provided by the clinicians of the MST.

With the exception of respite care programming, services will be provided at no cost. Respite care programming is expected to begin in January 2024, and more information about that service will be forthcoming by year’s end.

This project is supported in part by a grand awarded to AlzOC from the federal Department of Health and Human Services. 

The development of the MST was greatly influenced by the thoughtful and persistent advocacy of the Golden Age Foundation. Support for the program has also come from the Golden Rain Foundation, SoMang Society, Pathways Volunteer Hospice, CSULB Center for Successful Aging, LWSB Community Church, Meals on Wheels Long Beach and Orange County, LWSB OPTUM Care Health Center and Alzheimer’s Orange County. 

Those with questions about classes can email learn@alzoc.org or call the helpline at 844-373-4400. For more information about the MST’s services, call Tarah McNulty, community services project manager, at 949-757-3759 or email tarah.mcnulty@alzoc.org.


First Amphitheater show was a resounding success

The first show of the 2023 Amphitheater Season was a huge hit. On June 29, the Amphitheater was packed to the brim with Leisure Worlders dancing and singing along to Beach Boys songs performed by tribute band Surf’s Up. 

The successful kick-off to summer full of concerts was standing-room only. The event was sponsored by Home Instead Senior Care and On-Site Home Sales, who threw beach balls into the audience to add some oceanside flare to the event. 

People enjoyed food offerings from Lucille’s BBQ, Koffel’s and Mandi’s Candies. To view the full Ampitheater Season schedule, see page 14 or consult the 2023 Spotlight On Entertainment, which were mailed to residents homes in June. Extra copies are available in the News Office, located next to the Amphitheater.


Annual Life Options Expo linked residents to crucial resources

Veterans Plaza was bustling with energy on June 30 as residents flocked to and fro at the Life Options Expo, gathering advice and information on how to live their best, healthiest lives. 

The annual expo brings a myriad of health providers to Leisure World, creating a dense resource of crucial health information in residents’ backyard. The event was presented by GRF in partnership with Sunrise of Seal Beach Assisted Living. 

Various vendors from home care and elder care agencies, residential care facilities, county organizations and more presented information on their services along with giveaways, raffles, games, snacks and refreshments. Representatives from Lucent Hospice entertained people with Plinko games and prizes.

“I love it! There are so many things and information to choose from that I may need in the future,” said Mutual 4 resident John Russell, who’s attended the expo for the past six years. 

The LW Orchestra provided entertainment and people enjoyed food options and sweets for purchase from Mandi’s Candies Ice Cream and Berlin Food Truck. 

The ambiance, along with beautiful sunny weather, was welcoming and pleasant. The excitement was palpable, as people gathered to watch presentations and review products and services. 

The hugely popular event was deemed a success.



Get acquainted with the Minibus system at meeting

A Minibus informational meeting will be held today, July 6, at 10 a.m. in Clubhouse 3, Room 3. Meetings are held on the first Thursday of every month to assist LW residents with using the many transportation services available to the Leisure World community. No reservations are required.

The GRF Transportation Department provides information on the LW Minibus service as well as the GRF appointment-based Access bus service for people with mobility challenges.

Information on other local area bus and transportation services to nearby grocery shopping and medical service destinations is also presented. 

Meetings often include information and updates on the City of Seal Beach Senior Shopping Shuttle to Rossmoor and Old Ranch shopping centers and the Seal Beach Old Town Pier shuttle.

The LW Minibus service is a community transportation service for everyone. Anyone who has a valid pass to enter the community can ride on the LW buses. The only rule is each person must be 18 years of age or older or accompanied by someone who is 18 years of age or older.



SB police arrest child abuse suspect

The Seal Beach Police Department was involved in a car chase that resulted in the arrest of a 25-year-old child abuse suspect.

On June 22 at about 3:37 p.m., Seal Beach police officers were dispatched to the area of Heather Street and Guava Avenue in Seal Beach regarding a welfare check of a young child located in the neighborhood without any parents or guardians in the vicinity. 

Officers arrived on scene and observed visible injuries to the 4-year-old child’s face and body. Officers requested paramedics to respond and began a child abuse investigation.

While paramedics were conducting a physical assessment of the child, the alleged abuser responsible for the child’s injuries was observed driving in the neighborhood and an investigative traffic stop was initiated. 

The suspect fled from the traffic stop in his vehicle and a pursuit ensued.

The pursuit continued through the city of Garden Grove, onto the northbound 405 freeway and was ultimately terminated by officers who could not determine if the suspect vehicle had continued northbound 405 or onto the northbound 605 freeway. 

Approximately three minutes later, the suspect vehicle was involved in a traffic collision in the city of Los Alamitos. The suspect fled from the vehicle on foot. With the assistance of Los Alamitos and Cypress police officers and the Huntington Beach police helicopter, the suspect was located and taken into custody.

The child was transported to a local hospital and Child Protective Services was contacted.

The suspect was identified as Cody Rohlfing, age 25, of Seal Beach. It was later determined that the suspect was not biologically related to the child but lives with the child’s mother at the residence in Seal Beach. 

Rohlfing was later transported to Orange County Jail to be booked for felony child abuse, resisting arrest, felony evading and felony hit and run resulting in injuries.

This is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact Sergeant Gibson at 562-799-4100, ext. 1128, or jgibson@sealbeachca.gov.


Bus Tours

The GRF Transportation Department will conduct monthly bus tours of Leisure World on the first Tuesdays for new and recently moved-in residents.

Included in the tour will be GRF clubhouses, Turtle Lake Golf Course, Mission Park and its activity courts and gaming rooms, the 1.8-Acre disposal and recycling area, as well as the Leisure World Library and the Main Gate bus station.

Art League

The LW Art League will hold a demonstration on Tuesday, July 11, at 7 p.m. in Clubhouse 4. The demonstrator will be contemporary visual artist Cody Lusby from Long Beach. He aspires to change the world through local community action and by developing large-scale projects that enable viewers to feel empowered.

His classical art training began at the Orange County High School of Arts, after which he was awarded a scholarship to Laguna College of Art and Design. 

Building on his knowledge of representational painting, he spent 10 years experimenting in a more contemporary manner and then another 10 years working to refine his style. In the past 14 years he has had 12 solo shows involving a range of artistic practices including painting, sculpture and video.

Lusby is a local Long Beach artist who has lived in his Rose Park home for 11 years. Lusby’s event is part of the Long Beach Open Studio Tour, a yearly self-guided tour that allows guests to visit artists in their studios and home to see their art and workspaces.

Lusby can be recognized for his community project, Roses for Rose Park, which consists of large multi-colored roses being painted on walls, in front of homes, and on the streets in the Rose Park area. 

The murals are created with a team of neighborhood volunteers. Growing up in beach cities such as San Pedro, Huntington Beach and now Long Beach, water and water conservation are themes in Lusby’s work, most notably in his series titled “Water Wars.”

“I just want to, in a playful way, talk about the importance of water conservation,” he said. “How here, especially in California, it should be a way of life.”

The theme for the popular vote this month is “mixed media.” People should have their paintings in by 6:30 p.m. for judging.


Salsa classes begin July 10

The Leisure Time Dancers class continued working on its cha-cha sequence this week.  Everyone is looking very polished. The East Coast swing class introduced a couple of new steps, the “jump back and clap” and and the “side sweep.”  These moves have a lot of character and the class spent much of the hour laughing in enjoyment.

The current class series was extended, so cha-cha and East Coast swing were featured for an additional week on July 3. 

The group meets Monday afternoons, in the dance studio, upstairs in Clubhouse 6. On Monday, July 10, a new series will start: salsa will be at 2 p.m., followed by nightclub two-step at 3.

No partner is necessary. Class will rotate so everyone dances. Beginners are welcome; a review of basics will be included. The cost is $7 per person for one class, $11 per person for two classes in a single day. For more information, contact Leisure Time Dancers President Jackie Theis at 310-743-9373.


Vinyl Rock

GRF welcomes back Vinyl Rock to the weekend dance lineup this Saturday, July 8, in Clubhouse 4 at 7 p.m. All are welcome but guests must be accompanied by the resident who invites them.

LW Poetry

This feature showcases original poems by members of the Creative Writers Club of Leisure World and other GRF members. 

This poem was written by Gary Krank for his granddaughter’s 11th birthday.

Happy 11

Caterpillars become butterflies.

Kittens become cats.

Thinking life’s a fixed routine

is an illusion and a trap.

The universe is conscious.

We breathe its changes every day.

Sometimes you’re the hunter;

sometimes you’re the prey.

Sometimes you’re eloquent

with the perfect words to say,

lighting up a deeper truth

like a rainbow’s every ray.

Thoughts and feelings shine like mirrors

reflecting heart and mind,

attracting love and kindness

like a lyric when it rhymes,

or branches in a forest,

or the smell of growing pines.

And today’s your celebration,

so seek and you shall find.

—Gary Krank

Speed up the weight loss goals with Wa-Rite every Friday in CH 3



On June 23, the Wa-Rite Club celebrated members Pat Miller and Marianne Barlow. Miller was a top loser shedding 3 of the of the 15.5 pounds lost by the club last week, attributing  her success to attending a nutritional program through her medical plan and learning more about nutrition. Barlow received a Wa-Rite’s bachelor’s degree for achieving and maintaining her weight loss goal.

Virginia Olejnik presented on the health benefits of ginger and lemon water. She offered some suggestions on incorporating ginger into a diet, which helps with inflammation, pain relief, lowers cholesterol, improves sugar regulation and reduces nausea. Olejnik also addressed the reasons to add a glass or two of water with lemon to one’s diet, which provides vitamin C, potassium, flavonoids and helps with inflammation, digestion and regularity, improved immunity, and is also linked to boosting serotonin production and contributing to weight loss.

LW Korean Community Church

On June 4, Leisure World Korean Community Church (LWKCC), led by Senior Pastor Dr. Jang-Young Yong, honored the 73rd anniversary of the Korean War.

There were three people in the church alumni who were veterans of the war: Saeng Ji, Chul Park, Hyung Cho, and Ok Jeong-Ok Ahn. 

The Korean War broke out on June 25, 1950, when North Korea invaded the Republic of Korea.  They invaded on Sunday morning when everyone was resting. The war ended with the armistice agreement on July 27, 1953, with the intervention of the international community and the power of the U.S. and United Nations forces.

War makes it difficult to determine the exact number of human casualties. It is estimated that between 140,000 and 415,000 civilians were killed. More than 36,000 American soldiers and more than 215,000 South Korean soldiers were killed. The human toll of the war was great, and its effects are still felt.

While suffering from poverty and disease, through God’s guidance and blessings, Korea found stability and life with the help of UNESCO and the U.S. It has become a missionary country that spreads the word of God.

First Christian Church

First Christian Church of Leisure World teaches from God’s word, the Holy Bible, verse by verse. 

It is a friendly church that welcomes all visitors to join in worship and explore God’s word together, “That we may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith, both yours and mine” Romans 1:12.

Pastor’s Message

Abram and his wife, Sarai, yearned to have a son. Despite God’s promise that Abram’s descendants would be as numerous as the stars, they conspired to intervene. After 10 years in the land God promised them, they became impatient and decided to take things into their own hands. 

In Genesis 16:2-3 Sarai tells her husband Abram that he should marry her maid Hagar and have children. When Hagar conceived, Sarai despised her. Jealousy and blame rose to surface and difficulties to this day remain within the descendants of Sarai and Hagar. 

Trusting and waiting on God to do what he has promised can be difficult. It is best to have patience and wait on him to give guidance and wisdom.

This week’s sermon: Pastor Chuck Franco will finish the series “The Good Fruit We Bear,” with the final attribute of a Christian listed in Galatians 5:22-23, self-control.  So many heartaches could be avoided by exercising self-control. Many excuses are given for allowing tempers to flare, words to be carelessly spoken, or hasty actions taken. But Christians are humans who have access to the help of the Holy Spirit in exercising self-control. This series concludes with a challenge to let God transform one’s life, becoming more Christ-like.  

Bible Study: “Job”  by Francis Chan encourages students to rethink the message of the Biblical passage, and to apply it to their own situation. 

Contact: More information about the church can be found at www.lwassemblyofgod.com. Those who would like prayer or a DVD of the sermon can contact pastors Chuck and Sheryl Franco by calling 562-357-4360 or emailing pastorchuck@lwassemblyofgod.com.

Learn about assisted living

Wendy Wheeler from Sunrise Seal Beach will speak at the Sunshine Club on Friday, July 7, in Clubhouse 3, Room 2, at 10 a.m. for an interactive presentation on assisted living.

Wheeler will show just how vibrant Sunrise community is for seniors. She will also talk about what the difference is between a skilled nursing facility and assisted living community.  Wheeler will explain all of the care options available to seniors who need help and provide information on what services Sunrise offers.  

An assisted living community is not a place that seniors’ kids put them, it is the beginning of an exciting chapter where all they have to do is enjoy living every day to the fullest. 

All residents are welcome to come and enjoy learning about assisted living in a fun and relaxed environment.

FALW honors LW veterans at annual picnic

The Filipino Association of Leisure World (FALW) honored veterans with a picnic on July 2. The weather was perfect, clear blue skies with a cool breeze from the ocean nearby. It was a great day to celebrate the nation’s heroes.

The FALW successfully hosted its annual Veterans Picnic with the financial aid  of the Golden Age Foundation. The event drew hundreds of veterans and their guests.

FALW is grateful for the sacrifices of the men and women who served this country in time of need. Their sacrifices help preserved the sanctity of peace and freedom enjoyed by all. 

The day started early with the cohesive support of FALW members who set up the area before the guests arrived around 10 a.m. 

 FALW President Ren Villanueva then kicked off the event by welcoming all the veterans and guests with a message. The audience participated in singing the National Anthem and reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. Father Juan Caboboy, FALW’s spiritual adviser, gave the invocation.

Several members presented the banners of the branches of the U.S. Armed Forces to the crowd, while singing their respective hymns. After the presentation, a special tribute to the departed heroes was played and “Taps” which was solemnly observed.

This year’s token gift is a simple one that says it all. The first 100 people who RSVPed received a bonnet with inscriptions “Thank You Veteran” and a beautiful commemorative coin that describes what a hero is.

The Hui O Hula of Leisure World entertained the crowd with a hula dance and the Second Wind Band provided the beautiful music. There was voluminous food for everybody to enjoy.

 FALW thanks veterans  for their sacrifice.

Democratic Club

by Mary Larson

LW contributor

Leisure World Democrats filled their meeting room in Clubhouse 3 to capacity on June 28.  The club heard directly from Congressman Adam Schiff about his candidacy for the U.S. Senate.

Schiff began his half-hour presentation with a review of what he had been able to accomplish, first as a member of the California legislature and later as a member of the House of Representatives. He also shared why he has been spending a substantial amount of time talking with potential voters in regions of the state outside of the densely populated areas in Northern and Southern California.

After these initial remarks, Schiff answered a number of questions from the club. He explained why he voted to support President Biden’s position on raising the debit ceiling, why he believed in expanding the number of judges on the Supreme Court and why he believed Congress members should continue to  “earmark” funds to meet specific needs of their constituents. 

Congresswoman Katie Porter is also running to replace Dianne Feinstein in the U.S. Senate. She has been invited to speak at the club meeting on Aug. 23.  

LW Democrats and supporters are reminded that in the coming months before the 2024 primary election, the club will host a series of voter awareness gatherings. These sessions will begin on Wednesday, July 19, at 1 p.m. in Clubhouse 3.  This first session will feature a discussion about how local political clubs such as the one in LW—as well as the Democratic Party at all levels—function. It will cover topics such as who is running for election, the endorsement of candidates and the important role individuals can play in the process. Because of the size of the room, attendance will be limited so interested Democrats 

are encouraged to register immediately by emailing beverleybender@gmail.com. 

 July is the club’s Candidate Support and Voter Outreach annual fundraising month. 

The featured speaker for the Democratic Club’s next membership meeting on July 26 will be Joanna Weiss. She is one of several candidates running to succeed Katie Porter in the House of Representatives.  Weiss, who will join the meeting in-person, founded the grassroots organization  Women for American Values and Ethics (WAVE). 

For more in-depth reporting on issues and candidates, Democrats and supporters can subscribe to the club’s free electronic newsletter by emailing democraticclubsblw@gmail.com or calling 562-296-8521.   People are asked to include their full contact information, as well as party affiliation.

Fujio Norihiro and Bill Zurn each record holes-in-one

The Leisure World Men’s Golf Club played its second tournament of the month on June 28 at the Turtle Lake Golf Course. This round, holes-in-one were achieved by both Fujio Norihiro (Hole No. 4) and Bill Zurn (Hole No. 5), a relatively rare occurrence. 

Two groups of three flights of variously skilled golfers played for best net scores (gross score minus handicap), plus four circle holes (shots within a 5-foot radius are rewarded) and two closest-to-the-pin challenges. 

A total of 52 golfers challenged the course this week. A special low gross challenge was offered, and 17 golfers accepted. Bob Barnum took first place with a terrific 3 under 51; Bill Lyons, second at 2 under 52; Bob Turner, third, at 1 under 53.

Even with cool weather conditions there were 59 birdies and seven circle hole winners. Additionally, 31 of 52 golfers were net at or under par. Closest to the pin on the seventh hole was Young Lee, and on the 16th hole was Thomas Kim. Low net score was June Sup Yoon at 11 under 43, followed by Dennis McMonigle at 8 under 46, Sam Williamson and Jim Bassett at 7 under 47 with 10 other golfers at or under net 50.

All winning scores below are net: gross score minus handicap

A flight winners (handicaps of 0-7): Barnum, first place; second was a tie between Fujio Norihiro and Jae H. Lee; third, a three-way tie between Bill Lyons, Young J. Kim and Bob Turner; Pat Paternoster and Ron Steele tied for fourth; Yong Lee and Dong Kim tied for fifth; and Andrew Kim and Mike Mayfield tied for sixth.

B flight winners (handicaps of 8-12): McMonigle, first place; second was a tie between Stan Johnson and Rolando Ramirez; Won Song, Dale Williamson and Gene Archambault tied for third; and Steve Kang and John Rudosky tied for fourth.

C flight winners (handicaps of 13-18): Yoon, first place; second was a tie between Williamson and Bassett; Jon Russell, third; Daniel Mahoney, Mike Carlson, Dennis Jensen and Dennis Actil tied for fourth; Roland Phillips, fifth; and John Sorenson and Kevin Lindstedt tied sixth.

Those who had planned to play in any tournament and cannot, need to contact Scott Tuchfarber at 909-684-0426 or Dave LaCascia at 801-674-5975 as soon as possible. Arrive 10-15 minutes prior to scheduled tee time and be ready to play.


Women’s Golf

The women’s weekly nine-hole golf tournament competition was held on June 26. Thirty-nine women golfers competed for low gross, low net, and chip-ins. Nine of those golfers chipped the golf ball from the fairway directly into the hole. One golfer, Keiko Sekino, managed to score two chip-ins.

A flight winners: Low gross: a tie between Linda Herman and Chong Hee Kim, 27; low net: a three-way tie between Sang An, Grace Choi and Alison Kim, 22; chip-ins: Linda Herman and Alison Kim, Hole No. 7 and Young Yoon, Hole No. 4.

Men’s Golf Club held annual spring/summer picnic

The Leisure World Men’s Golf Club held its annual spring/summer picnic June 2 after the monthly Guys and Gals Tournament. Over 90 golfers, families and friends descended on the Clubhouse 1 picnic area to be treated to hamburgers and hot dogs, along with salads, condiments, a beautifully designed sheet cake and liquid refreshments. 

It was a beautiful afternoon with warmth and sun in direct contrast to the weather the area has endured over the last few months. During the picnic, the Greenbelt Singers performed songs from all genres of music and were well received by the guests.

Dozens of donations from local businesses were raffled off during the picnic. Gifts included Roger Dunn gift certificates, Polly’s Pies gift cards, sleeves of golf balls and plants. More than half the visitors went home happy with a gift.

The club thanks the picnic organizers and volunteers who picked up the supplies, set up the area, cooked, served and cleaned up after it was all over.


Guys and Gals June Golf Tournament

A Guys and Gals Tournament was played on June 21. The competition was played under surprisingly sunny skies and warm temperatures. Most of the golfers were pleased that the recent golf-unfriendly weather disappeared for the first day of summer. The club gives special thanks to Alan Sewell and Scott Tuchfarber for handling the tournament related tasks, Dave LaCascia for making the coffee, Bob Turner for picking up the donuts, Steve Walker for clean-up and Jae Kim for announcing duties.

Teams of various skilled golfers of one man and one woman vied for best net scores (gross score minus handicap), plus two circle holes (shots within a 5-foot radius are rewarded), and two closest-to-the-pin challenges. The Turtle Lake Golf Course is a 1,658-yard, 18-hole par-54 course that tests all who play. A total of 30 teams (60 players) teed off and played 18 holes. Fairways and tee boxes are in good condition and the greens continue to improve.

Closest to the pin on the second hole was Young Kim and Dale Quinn. On the 11th hole it was Scott Tuchfarber and Young Sil Yoon. The lowest gross score was recorded by Dong and Devora Kim at 5 under 49. Fujio Norihiro and Keiko Sekino had the lowest net score at 11 under 43. Two other teams had net scores of 44 or 10 under par. With the great weather all 30 teams had net scores under par and there were only five circle hole winners with just 42 birdies.

All scores below are net (gross score minus handicap). 

A flight winners (handicaps of 0-10): the Turners, first place, 10 under 40; second was a tie between the Kims, and Jae H. and Sun Lee, 8 under 46; Steve Walker and Lisa Kim, third, 7 under 47.

B flight winners (handicaps of 11-12): Norihiro and Sekino, first place, 11 under 43; second was tie between Chang Ho and Sue Choi, Seon and Sang Kim, and Walt Bier and Margie Thompson, 9 under 45; James Farr and Sandy Derouin, Young and Hae Lee, and Hyon Shin and Sang An tied for third, 7 under 47.

C flight winners (handicaps of 12-18): Steve and Connie Kang, first place, 10 under 44; Dale Williamson and Mary Greig, second, 9 under 45; Ron Jackson and Dale Quinn, third, 7 under 47.

The next Guys and Gals Tournament is July 19. Any golfer who planned to play in a tournament and cannot should contact Alan Sewell at 541-324-8558, Scott Tuchfarber at 909-684-0426, or Dave LaCascia at 801-674-5975 as soon as possible. Arrive 10-15 minutes prior to the scheduled tee time and be ready to play.

Shuffleboard Club tends to valued indoor courts 

Shuffleboard Club members, both past and present, highly value the indoor shuffleboard courts of Leisure World. Although there has been a Shuffleboard Club for 60 years, the shuffleboard building with the six beautiful indoor lanes were not built until the early 1990s. Gradually, the outdoor courts have been removed from the original three areas as LW residents realized that the indoor lanes facilitated a different, more precise kind of game. To maintain the courts over the last 30 years, Shuffleboard Club members have diligently prepared the courts with various types of wax beads spread over the courts before every set of games. After the games on any given day, the wax beads are swept, recycled, and all equipment is returned to the appropriate storage area. 

After the restoration work that is scheduled to begin July 10, the club will use the most up-to-date product (PolyGlide) to spread on the courts before games. In addition, for the first time, the discs have been beveled around the underside edge to help the discs glide more evenly without sticking to areas of the court.

The shuffleboard courts will close for refurbishment starting Monday, July 10. Aug. 1 is targeted for the grand re-opening of the courts, though it may be possible that pick-up games can begin even earlier that.

Fall leagues will begin organizing their teams and schedules by the middle of August. New players are welcome to join either or both the leagues: Tuesday evenings from 5:30-8, and Friday mornings from 8:30-11. The fall season will play nine games and will end by mid-December. There will be a sign-up sheet starting Aug. 16 at the courts building for everyone interested in joining a team.

For more information, call or text Kay Mount at 775-527-0426.

Tournament Poker

The Leisure World Tournament Poker Club held a casino tournament June 24.

There were 40 players at six tables and a good time was had by all. Players enjoyed a light breakfast and were ready for cards in the air by 10:30 a.m., the new playing time. 

As players were knocked out, the remaining players were relocated to open spots until it was down to the final nine players. Renato Villanueva finished in ninth place; Susan Dodson, eighth; Kirk Bromberg, seventh; Harry Sera, sixth; Lem Hall, fifth; Steve Edrich, fourth; Ron Pine, third; Barry Brideau, second; and Shelly Yu, first.

Yu has lived in Leisure World for about a year and has been a member of the club right from the beginning. This was her first final table win. Besides poker, Yu also enjoys playing pickleball here in Leisure World. 

The club congratulates all the winners and sends a big thank you to all those who played in this event. Anyone who would like to play a fun and friendly game of Texas Hold ‘Em, make plans to join the club next time on one of the first three Saturdays of every month in the lobby of Clubhouse 6 at 10 a.m. for registration, with cards in the air at 10:30. There will be no late seating.
