November 28th, 2005       

Fredericton – November 23, 2005 – Andrea Feunekes, President of Remsoft has been named a 2005 RBC Canadian Woman Entrepreneur of the Year.       

Andrea was chosen from among a slate of successful business women from across Canada as the winner in the Intel Innovation category – honoring a Canadian woman who has implemented new ideas with technology to create a competitive advantage for their organization.
Blah, blah, blah – the news item goes on to say thing like “Andrea is setting the new standard for innovation” and other superlatives.
      

  

Cute couple, smart too!

  Sure, this post has nothing to do with the cottage but one could argue that, as a forester and head of an environment-centric company, it has everything to do with environmentalism.     

  

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANDREA!

 Love from….   

 

  

ME!

Looks like Evan isn't too pleased with Dad...

 And finally, Evan on the old front steps of the cottage with Grancie.  I won’t miss those steps! 

Hey Evan – isn’t it great when your aunt posts pictures of you as a little kid when you finally hit an adult birthday?

Yesterday horseshoes…tomorrow – bocce ball!

13 Aug

You’ll all remember the horseshoe champ of yesteryear – will she be able to retain her reign of sporting terror when we start playing bocce next summer?

The rules of Bocce:

  •  Find a flat, level playing surface (packed dirt, gravel or grass are ideal). A regulation bocce court is 76 feet long and 10 feet wide.
    • Divide players into two teams of one, two or four players each. Each team gets four balls, divided equally among the players.
    • Have a player from the starting team stand behind the foul line (which is 10 feet from the throwing end of the court) and throw the small ball, or “pallina,” toward the opposite end of the playing surface.
    • Let the player then throw one of the larger balls, or “boccia,” trying to get it as close to the pallina as possible without touching it.
    • Have players from the opposing team take turns throwing their balls until one of the balls stops closer to the pallina than the starting player’s ball. If they fail to do so, the starting team tries to outdo its first attempt.
    • Let the starting players take their second turn if the opposing team gets closer to the pallina than the starting team without using all of their balls.
    • Continue in this fashion until all eight balls have been thrown. The team with the closest ball gets one point for each of its balls that are closer to the pallina than the other team’s closest ball.
    • Keep in mind that if the two teams’ closest balls are an equal distance from the pallina, no points are awarded.
    • End the frame after all eight balls have been thrown and appropriate points have been awarded. The scoring team begins the next frame. If no team previously scored, the team that threw the pallina last begins the next frame.
    • Play as many frames as needed until one team has a total score of 16 points.
