If you live in the Cove or the immediate area and would be available to come play on short notice, please reply with your Name and Phone Number. I'll pass it along to the other bridge players who will be very grateful.

News from Ted

TedWe have a couple of fun and unique activities this weekend. Come down for Karaoke w/ Roland & Melanie on Thursday night at Scuttlebutts. We've got thousands of songs to choose from.

Join us for dinner from 5-8 PM on Friday and stay for the Murder Mystery. They will be signing up volunteers for a role in Scuttlebutts at 7 PM. Then the Murder Mystery will begin at 8 PM. Can you solve the crime?!

The Pickleball Club is hosting their Second Annual Cove Turkey Smash Pickleball Tournament on Saturday. They are pulling out all the stops.

Then come down for dinner and Dance w/ Elvis Tribute by KennE. My understanding is that this is a regular dance with a little Elvis thrown in. It's been a while since we've had an Elvis at the club!


We have an honor library in the Clubhouse. Residents and members drop off books when they are finished with them, and pick one up if they see something interesting. Recently, a few members have reported dropping off dozens (!) of books there, only to find them all gone a few days later. It seems someone is grabbing them all up. I don't know if they are selling them (maybe even in our own garage sale), but that is really not in the spirit of the library. Please only take what you intend to read. Thank you.


Around the Cove this week:

The Petanque Tournament was a great success with our Cove visitors from around the world

A little skill and a lot of of luck is all that is needed to enjoy Petanque

A great 50’s dance with the fabulous band – Shake, Rattle & Soul

The infamous “Pink Ladies” from the movie Grease showed up at the dance

Our great servers & bartenders came dressed to make the party even more fun

Have you got your "Ask Me About Cypress Cove" t-shirt yet?

They are priced at just $5 each, so we are not making any money on the shirts. We are just hoping to spark some word of mouth marketing. Wear it to town, to the grocery store; just wear it while you are out and about.

So if you are a proud Cypress Cove member and want to help spread the word, please pick up your new t-shirt today! - Thank you

Ask Me About
One of our members at White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire

By the way, I just want to thank everyone for doing this. It has been so much fun getting new pictures from exotic locations all over the US and the world! We have the absolute best, most loyal members I can imagine. I am so grateful.

Where have you worn your "Ask Me About Cypress Cove" T-shirt?
Send us a pic!


Someone suggested that we create a page on our website going into a bit more detail on our various classes and activities. If you are responsible for one of the scheduled classes or activities, please email me a brief description. One sentence would be okay, more if needed, but just a summary for new visitors. I'm thinking of everything from bingo to exercises to petanque. Thank you in advance!


Regis handles activities, but I put together the weekly newsletter. I'm always looking for content. If you have anything that you would like to see in the newsletter, please email submissions to


We received some very nice new reviews on TripAdvisor. Thank you! If you would like to help spread the word, you can review us using the link below.
