After having the finals of our Northern District Tournament earlier in the day, it was a relief to relax and spend some quality time socializing over dinner. We had 25 members attend and bring a large variety of wonderful dishes to share. Bob Finta and Carol came with her wonderful homemade cookies. Allen Best was feeling better so he was able to join us for dinner. Allen welcomed new members and some of our returning Snow Birds. Joan Best collected the 50/50 and lead us in a prayer. Social Mahjong Members Patrick and Barb Clark won the 50/50 pot. After dinner 16 members stayed to play Bunco. See you at November’s Pot Luck. Ciao!
Thursday, Oct 19, was the first day of the Northern District Any Doubles Tournament at the CMS Shuffleboard Courts. Candy and Richard Kordeleski arrived early to start preparing the facilities for the tournament. Candy made the coffee and arranged the kitchen. Rich blew the leaves away and prepped all eleven courts we needed for the day. Tom Rimmer came early to help as well. Johnnie Conner and Betty Buccini had decorated the hall with lovely Fall colors and beautiful center pieces on the tables. Barb Nephew and Betty Buccini took care of the entry fees, Joan Best collected the 50/50 and the tournament directors Rich and Caroline Burrell signed the players up and assigned them their courts. Allen Best was home sick so our VP Johnnie Conner took over to welcome the participating players. During the day our volunteers stepped in to help the players by waxing discs and beading courts. Thanks to all our volunteers, Don Nephew, Diane Hamas, Gerry Bousquet, Lorretta Cantalupo, Bob Stock and Barb Fortini.
We had 22 Teams participating in the tournament. We thank our tournament sponsors Climatron, Inc from Daytona Beach and the Coronado/Mainland Shuffleboard Club.
Congratulations to all the members of the CMS Shuffleboard club who participated and especially our Finalists:
1st Place Main – Dennis Buelk and Tom Rimmer
3rd Place Main – Randy Radke and Bonnie Radke
1st Place Cons – Darrel Harman and Rex Galusha

This drizzly morning our crew arrived to gather up and remove wet accumulated and scattered leaves as best we could before tomorrow’s ND Tournament.
Mary McConnell cleaned the chalk boards. Cindy, Candy and Mary set up the tables and chairs in the Club House while Zak, Bonnie, Randy and Rich pushed a lot of leaves and water around the courts and benches. Al and Joan Best arrived to finish up tweaking the clubhouse before Johnnie Conner and Betty Buccini come by later on to decorate.
We give a big THANK YOU to those members who helped out during this morning’s inclement weather. Ciao!
We still need volunteers to sign up to help for the Northern District Tournament being held at our CMS courts this Thursday 10/19 and Friday 10/20. We need people to wax discs, clean and bead courts and help support participants in general. Please sign up in the cue house. Thanks for your help.
I have had requests for the Tournament Results from the Northern District to be published on our site. They sometimes are slow to publish them, but I will up date this page as I have them. Congratulations to all those members from the Coronado/Main Shuffleboard Club who are participating in these tournaments. It can be a grueling schedule.

This Tuesday morning was the first Singles Mingles contest of the season. The usual crew showed up to sweep, clean and set up the courts for the morning’s play. We had Six (6) Amateurs and Seven (7) Pro/State Ams show up for the challenge. Dennis Buelk (Director) explained the rules and collected the entry fee. We each played five matches with twelve frames each. The winners of each match put down their scores after-which Dennis tallied them up to determine standings for the distribution of winnings.
The Amateur group winners were First Place, Zak Wonson; Second Place, Arlene Jabaut and Third Place, Jerry Jabaut. The Pro/State Am group winners were First Place, Phil Wade; Second Place, Bonnie Radke and Third Place, Dennis Buelk.
