CLUBS

ON STAGE

On Stage has a wish List.  As we prepare for our upcoming season, there are a number of items we would love to have donated.  We can use at least 1laptop (Apple preferred) Desktop or Mac Mini will work as well.  We can also use gently used iPads.  Additionally, we need flat screen TVs and computer monitors which must have working HDMI ports of any size up to 60".  Lastly, if you have any microphones, microphone stands, cables or music stands, please let us know. Once we complete putting this system together, we will not only use it with On Stage events and rehearsals, but we will make it available to other groups here in Rainberry Bay.  If you have any of these items, please contact Neill Klein by email at onstage.rainberry@yahoo,com

Come join us for "BINGO ON A SUMMER AFTERNOON" SCHEDULED FOR TUESDAY, JULY 16TH FROM 1:00-4:00 P.M. IN THE CLUBHOUSE AUDITORIUM!"  THIS WILL BE THE WOMEN'S CLUB'S LAST EVENT FOR THE 2023-2024 SEASON!  Tickets will be sold in advance on Monday, July 15 in the Clubhouse Lobby from 4:00-5:00 p.m.  If you are unable to get to the Clubhouse on Monday to sign up, you may register in advance by dropping off your payment with a check for $10.00 per person made payable to "RB Women's Club," and placing it in the Women's Club mailbox just outside the RB Library and Gym.  We are Box # 10!  
 

Be sure to provide us with your name(s) and contact info in case we need to get in touch with you ahead of the play date. Purchase your tickets early so you are not closed out of the event.  There are a limited number of BINGO boards available.  Once there are no more GINGO cards, the doors will close.  Hope to see you on Tuesday afternoon!
 

As this is our last Event for the Summer season, this writer will be on a much-needed vacation for the next few weeks.  So, unless something changes, the Women's Club column will be on hiatus until August 9th!  Happy Summer to all!!


 

BOWLING

The Summer Bowling League runs every Thursday afternoon, through August 22nd at 3:00 p.m. The cost for League bowling is $11.25 per week and covers three (3) games plus a pair of bowling shoes to rent.  In addition, League members are able to bowl two (2) FREE games the week following each session.  Shoe rental is also included in the price.  This is always a fun activity when everyone can be together indoors on a "hot" Summer afternoon.  And, you will get to show off your skills and bowling talents.  If I must say so myself, "Congratulations to Fern Katronetsky (ME,! the author)" for bowling an even 200 on June 27th.  I don't know how it was done, but "chance" was on my side.  Who knows if I'll ever bowl that again, but it was VERY EXCITING for this bowler!

If you are interested in joining our upcoming Fall/Winter League, contact League President, Fern Katronetsky, at the following email address <f.katronetsky@verizon.net>.  All are welcome to join; bring your friends and relatives as well so everyone can have as good a time as you!!
 

This writer will be on a much needed vacation for the next few weeks.  So, unless something changes, the RB Bowling League column will be on hiatus until August 9th!  Happy Summer to all!

 

TABLE TENNIS CLUB

The Table Tennis Club invites you to play or watch during our club play time: Mondays and Wednesdays 12-2, singles or doubles play; Fridays 10-12 mostly singles play. If you do want to play, wear shoes that aren’t too “grippy,” bring a drink and a paddle if you have it. Contact rbtabletennis@gmail.com with any questions.

CLASSES

 

NIA CLASSES (low impact dance aerobics and SO much more)

Nia (low impact dance aerobics) 

Tuesdays & Fridays 10-11AM In the Men’s Card Room

                                                       

Nia Summer Promotion Now Through the End of September:  New to Nia? First two classes are free. Current student? Bring a (new) friend and you both get 2 free classes. For all students now through the end of August, attend class and be entered in our raffle. 

 

There are choreographed dance moves, but they are more varied. There is upbeat music from around the world, very eclectic, covering several genres. But there’s also soothing music to calm the nervous system at the end of each routine. There are longer warm up and cool down periods. While you are encouraged to do more if you can, you’re also encouraged to listen to your body and do less when necessary. You’ll be taught adaptions to moves to accommodate any health issues. And a huge difference is the low injury rate as Nia is based on how our bodies are meant to move.

 

CURRENT EVENTS

Allan Trust & Roberta Weltmann, are our new co-leaders. We will continue to meet at 10:30 AM, on Thursdays, in the clubhouse. The club will not be meeting for the month of July. The next meeting will be Thursday, 8/1, at 10:30AM, at the clubhouse.
