Miss all the action at our annual Turkey Shoot? Well, John DeLille, Tennis Director and Resident Croquet King is here to fill you in!
“The Turkeys, captained by Bob Fulton trotted away with the championship over the Cranberries, captained by George Aposian. In the consolation round, those pesky Pumpkins smashed the Mashers. Rancho Valencia’s new General Manager, Simon Chen, was on hand to hand out the awards. A giant turkey to all the Turkey players and for the Pumpkins? A cornish hen!”
