************* Joey and DJ quit Uno August 28, 1996. The official Uno table and box were left with Mike Blom at his house in Bay Shore. A poker game which Mike had been hosting for years replaced the Uno Club. Cathy Blom, Mike Blom, Mark Turco began playing poker weekly at Mike’s until July 3, 1999, when Tim Richardson started a fight with Mark. Mike called the poker game off. Later while at Montauk with Joe and Cathy, Mike proposed a return of the original uno club. Which – at this writing - was still in "experimental stages of development."  But is considered re-established as of September 18, 1999
  Cathy at Montauk&ldots; notice that even 3 years later, Cathy has a habit of hurting her leg.
