Just Havin Fun Newsletter
June 19, 2016
From Mike ...
I think there has been a little confusion over a couple of our rules so let me address those rules.
Boo Rules -
- In 1x1 (swiss or any game format to 5 or 10) only one boo is allowed per player per team. The second boo will be an automatic DQ. The player making the second boo must stand. Their partner is allowed a sub to finish the game and/or tourney. Once a sub sits and plays, he/she must finish the tourney.
- In 2x2 (swiss or any game format to 5 or 10) only one boo is allowed per team per tourney. The second boo will be an automatic DQ. The team is DQ'ed.
- In 3x3 (any game format to 5 or 10) only one boo is allowed per team per tourney. The second boo is an automatic DQ. The team is DQ'ed.
Sub Rule -
- In 2x2 tourneys (swiss or any game format), if a partner is missing in action or times out, they will be timed for 5 or 3 minutes (depending on the round). After 5 or 3 minutes, the player (without a partner) may pick a sub to play. Those players still participating in the tourney cannot sub. The sub must be someone who is out of the tourney or someone who is not playing at all. If the team advances, the person subbing must finish out the tourney.
Playing In Tourneys -
- Do not register for another tourney if you are still playing in one. Finals can always be played to 5 instead of 10 (if those in finals agree) and players can ask to be DQ'ed if they want to play in the following tourney. All tourneys need to close no later than 5 minutes after the hour.
Hopefully, this ends the confusion. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask an Admin.
Have a great week and good luck at the tables!

Cooking with JHF ...
Each week a recipe will be featured in our newsletter. If you have a favorite you would like to share with your fellow league members, please email email@example.com and your recipe will be featured. This week's feature recipe is -
Peach Pie the Old Fashioned Two Crust Way
1 15-ounce package pastry for a 9-inch double crust pie
1 egg, beaten
5 cups sliced peeled peaches
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Line the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie plate with one of the pie crusts. Brush with some of the beaten egg to keep the dough from becoming soggy later. Place the sliced peaches in a large bowl and sprinkle with lemon juice. Mix gently. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Pour over the peaches and mix gently. Pour into the pie crust and dot with butter. Cover with the other pie crust and fold the edges under. Flute the edges to seal or press the edges with the tines of a fork dipped in egg. Brush the remaining egg over the top crust. Cut several slits in the top crust to vent steam. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, then reduce the heat to 350 degrees F and bake for an additional 30 to 35 minutes, until the crust is brown and the juice begins to bubble through the vents. If the edges brown to fast, cover them with strips of aluminum foil about halfway through baking. Cool before serving. Enjoy!

Jim Valvano was an American college basketball player, coach and broadcaster who once said, "My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me."
On The Lighter Side with JHF ...
What a Card - Father’s Day was near when I brought my three-year-old son, Tyler, to the card store. Inside, I showed him the cards for dads and told him to pick one. When I looked back, Tyler was picking up one card after another, opening them up and quickly shoving them back into slots, every which way. “Tyler, what are you doing?” I asked. “Haven’t you found a nice card for Daddy yet?” “No,” he replied. “I’m looking for one with money in it.”

Something to Think About ...
One day, little Jim was taking a walk with his father in the rugged roads of the mountain near their house. Suddenly, he slipped and hurt himself; Jim screamed, “AAAhhhh!” Immediately he heard a voice from the mountains saying, “AAAhhhh!” Jim forgot his hurt and shouted, “Who are you?” Once again he heard that voice saying, “Who are you?” Jim was amused and he shouted, saying, “I like you!” The voice immediately answered back, saying, “I like you!”
Finding the voice repeating everything that he said, Jim got annoyed and said, “You’re a coward! Come in front!” Once again like every other time that voice from the mountains repeated exactly what Jim had shouted its way.
Jim got flabbergasted. He looked at his father and asked, “Father, what is going on? Who is this?” His father smiled and said, “Son, this is called echo.” And then he said, “Now listen to this.” Jim’s father then shouted towards the mountains saying, “Hey, you are a champion!” The voice answered back, “Hey you are a champion!” Jim got puzzled.
Jim’s father then looked at him and said, “Son, although people call it echo, it is, in reality, Life. It gives you back everything that you give to it. Our life reflects our actions. If you give out love, then life rewards you back with it. If you want happiness from the world, spread happiness first and then you get your return.” Jim kept listening to his father as he continued, “Life is not a coincidence, son. It is your reflection – the reflection of your deeds, acts and beliefs.”

From Our Members ...
The Right Choice - compliments of Sweett_sassyblues_4u
My 16-year-old brother, Ryan, was out late with friends one night. Suddenly he realized it was Father’s Day and he had neglected to buy a card for our dad. After much searching, Ryan located an open store, but was disappointed to find only two cards left on a picked-over rack. Selecting one, he brought it home and, somewhat sheepishly, presented it to our father. Upon opening it, Dad read this message: “You’ve been like a father to me.” He looked at Ryan, puzzled. “Well, Dad,” Ryan tried to explain, “it was either that or the card that said, ‘Now that I’m a father too!'”

Wishing all the guys of JHF a very Happy Father's Day on Sunday, June 19!
Fathers are wonderful people too little understood and we do not sing their praises as often as we should.
But fathers are just wonderful in a million different ways and they merit loving compliments and accolade of praise.
For the only reason Dad aspires to fortune and success is to make the family proud of him and to bring them happiness.
And like our Heavenly Father, he's a guardian and a guide, someone that we can count on to be always on our side.
Celebrating the first day of Summer on Monday, June 20!
"Summer is the annual permission slip to be lazy. To do nothing and have it count for something. To lie in the grass and count the stars. To sit on a branch and study the clouds." - Regina Brett
