Free Throw Contest Results
Our third annual Free Throw Shooting contest was held on January 27th, at the St. Barnabas Elementary School gym. The winners are listed below:
10 year-old Kate Maher Kevin Quinn
11 year-old Kerianne Bunten Matt Saunders
12 year-old Pamela Coakley Ryan Fitzmaurice
13 year-old Melissa Lindsay John Keenan
14 year-old Tara Doherty Kevin Supple
The contest drew about seventy participants and was once again a well organized event put together by chairman Bob Ellis. The contestants were
asked to bring canned goods to the gym that evening, and about one hundred cans were turned over to the St. Barnabas Soup Kitchen as a result. Bob Ellis
would like to thank all the members who helped make the evening a success - Micky Brady, Bill Burns, Rich Condon, Jimmy Coombs, Dan Crane, Chris Farley,
Dennis Farley, John Finn and Jimmy Maher.
Three of our council winners, Matt Saunders, Ryan Fitzmaurice and Kevin Supple were victorious in the next round, the Bronx, Manhattan and
Staten Island mini-regional shootout. They will compete against the Westchester/Putnam winners at Shrub Oak on March 10th. A victory there would take
them to the NY State Championship at West Point. Stay hot fellas.
All Star Dart Tournament
The father/son team of Carmine & Derek Tabacco represented Boyd in the Chapter All-Star Tournament. With their combination of youth & experience,
the Tabaccos fought their way into the championship round where they succumbed, in a close match, to the Pro Patria Council Team. Great job guys
A few members have expressed interest in starting a bowling league in September, but more people would be needed. Let Rich Condon know of your
interest soon, as a commitment must be made to lanes in April.

Calvary Hospital in the Bronx is a modern facility providing loving care to patients in the advanced stages of cancer. With diminishing government
subsidies, Calvary relies heavily on the Knights of Columbus NY Chapter for financial assistance. We ask each member to return the enclosed chancebook in
support of this charitable institution.
As is expected, the focus is still on the accomplishments of the Fr. Duffy basketball program. The “Turkeys” (which include the “Acorns”) and the
Seniors have been putting in a busy schedule - in February alone the total number of games came to forty eight. The records of both teams have been
impressive - the “Turkeys” are 42 -16 while the Seniors are 29 - 5. Should these records be sustained, it would represent the best record since 1966.
The March, 1996 basketball schedule is posted in the council chambers should any former Fr. Duffy hoopsters like to see how the game is played today!
