An Irish Prayer for You
May God give you ...
For every storm, a rainbow, For very tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise, And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends, A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song, And an answer for each prayer.
Never forget -- God is all you need to succeed in 2015.
So from all your AMS/ASL staff family, here's wishing you all a very Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Diana, Brenda, Mike, Darla, Carol, Sky, Jenn, MeeMaw, Robbie, Barb, Karen, Traci,Trish, Peg, Sally, John, Precious, JL, Carmen, Rick, Wyatt, Sam, Christina, and Magan

NEWS LETTER & NEWS REPORTER:Diana and Darla
We'd like to thank all of our loyal members and staff, both past and present, for helping our league to grow by your participation and support of the tourneys we host. We hope you all are enjoying the tourneys we offer and the good times we all share together as we play and enjoy the game of spades here in Hardwood Spades. We still want to take a step backwards to remember our heiritage and humble beginnings as the AMERICAN SPADES LEAGLE. 6 years as ASL and now 5 years as All AMERICAN SPADES. During these past few years together we've seen many other leagues come and go but, because of our staff and members loyal support over the years we can proudly say we now are the oldest surviving league here in Hardwood Spades.
We'd like to thank both our previous ASL Staff Members and our loyal ASL League Members for sticking it out with us through the years both in the good times and in the bad times. We especially want to express our sincerest gratitude to you all for your continued support of ASL these many years as we strive to keep our league a fun, family friendly, and safe online place to come and enjoy the game of spades and friendly competition.
We are looking forward to spending many more years with our online ASL/AMS Spades Family here in Hardwood Spades. Don't forget to check out the quick link buttons above for our tourney calendar and for a few other helpful links.
Thanks for drop'n by. Good Luck and Happy Spading Everyone !!

"The effectual fervent prayer of a richeous man availeth much." God Listens. It's more than a catchy phrase. Please join our AMS/ASL family as we strive to lift our country and each other up daily in prayer to God. We believe in the power of prayer and that prayer works, so please join us and make your special needs and request known for you and your family, because we truly believe God listens and that He answers our prayers.

We still need everyone of our AMS/ASL family members to continue to send good thoughts, and our prayers to Dalli.
** We received a special request for prayers from Karen, aka arrascal, because her husband's condition is serious. He is in ICU at this time and has been placed on a ventilator. The doctors are now saying that the test results show that he is in respiratory failure and he also has pnuemonia. Please lift Karen, her husband, her family, and the doctors and nurses in charge of his care in prayer. We will post any further information about his status here as we receive it. **UPDATE ON LEROYS CONDITION: (March 1) Karen says, "As of this morning his condition has improved. His carbon dioxide level is back to normal and his white blood count is coming down. They may be able to start to ween him off the vent today." ***We also need to keep Sally, aka Granny_of_10 in your prayers. She also is not feeling well and is probably struggling with a bout of pnuemonia also, so please we need to remember all of these folks in your prayers.
**SPECIAL NOTE: Many of you are know Carol has been struggling through difficult times. But things are looking up for her now. She now has a new place to live and is looking for a job. For those of you could help her out by contributing to her paypal account that would be much appreciated. Here is the link to her paypal account http://www.paypal.com/home . Simply copy and paste this link into your browser. Open the page and at the top is a tab titled send. Click on this tab and then enter her email address firstname.lastname@example.org . She still has ongoing bills and needs help with food and rent.
Please also continue to remember Robbie for his unspoken prayer request. If any of you know of anyone else among our AMS/ASL family members that we have we missed mentioning, then please let someone on the staff know so that we can add them to our AMS/ASL family prayer list.
Our league's main goal is to provide a family friendly place where our ASL/AMS online family members can come to relax, enjoy the game of spades and good, friendly competition together. We hope you enjoy the time you share with us here in the American Spades League and All American Spades. If you haven't already joined our ASL/AMS online spades family, we'd like to invite you to join us today and become one of our loyal online ASL/AMS family members. We look forward to seeing you at a table soon. We have a chair reserved and waiting just for you. Come on and join us. Don't be square, we'll see you there.
For the complete list of all of our league's rules and policies please be sure to click on the tournament tab above. You will see them listed on the right side of this page. Please be sure you acquaint yourself with all of our rules and policies before joining a tournament. We'd also like to remind our members that the staff volunteers their time to host tournaments for our AMS/ASL family members. It's our pleasure to do so for you and we want everyone to enjoy the time they spend with us at our tournaments. However, we expect all our family members and staff to follow our rules and to remember that they are expected to follow them by keeping all drama out of the lobby. Everyone is expected to treat each person in the lobby and at our tables with courtesy and respect at all times when you are in our room. If you have a question or if you're having a problem or misunderstanding with someone about something concerning the tourney, simply ask the hosting TD or another staff member for help. You will be directed to go to a private table or private instant message where your concerns may be addressed and handled privately. So please remember do not voice your opinions about issues or bring drama into our lobby. Promoting drama is unfair to everyone and will not be tolerated. It floods the lobby with unnecessary chatter which only causes the hosting TD problems in handling their tour thus delaying the progress of the tournament for everyone. Those who refuse to heed a hosts or fellow staff members warning will be silenced. If you continue to disregard the warnings of the hosting TD or another staff member then the hosting TD or someone else on our Admin Staff has the option to box or ban such members who are refusing to abide by our leagues rules and policies.
Our tournaments are getting great turnouts. WTG everyone !! However, we'd like all of our members to remember that when it's time to start the tourney, we need you to be courteous to the hosting TD by giving them the lobby so they may call and set tables. Please be ready to set or join your table as soon as you see the host post it in the lobby. Players have 3 minutes to set and join tables. In pard tourneys after the 3 minute timer has run out you will be subbed out and for single event tourneys after the 3 minute timer has run out you will be "DQ'd". Your help concerning this matter will be greatly appreciated by everyone at the tourney.
