Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!
We have had very good turnouts for our Friday game days.
Thank you all for your support of this event. We will continue to try to make it interesting. The game wins for the Friday game in January will start counting towards seeding for the Club Championship which will be held in February.
Christmas falls on a Friday this year so we will make the next event only three
weeks long. There will be no organized play on Christmas day.
We will play the next three weeks like we have been playing
except we will play with handicaps. If you cannot play in one of
the weeks you are still required to pay a dollar to play with the
gang. We have had several members add a few dollars as a
donation to raise the pot and it is greatly appreciated. Of
course, we are happy to set someone up with a court if they
don’t want to participate. See you’ll next Friday!
Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!
Orange City Shuffleboard Club is a memory.
We have lost the Orange City Shuffleboard club. I will not delve into the reasons here, but suffice to say it will be missed by members and visitors alike, especially those of us who played in the several District tournaments they put on for use each year. It was a wonderful location and we shall all miss it very much, especially the rocking chairs on the front porch of the clubhouse!
The Northern District has sent a letter of thanks to club president Alice Vandervender, recognizing the ” hard work and dedication while performing your duties as President of
the Orange City Shuffleboard Club. … Your club was always welcoming and hospitable.”
From the Northern District Website.
We would like to welcome H2 Health as our new club sponsor. Sarah Osman came to our club and taught us how to use the temperature gauge we purchased to check the players temperature. They will be helping to keep us all healthy.
Well yesterday we had our first “real” board meetings since the Covid-19 hit New Smyrna. The Executive Board has met or poled each other ever since the city closed us down which caused us to miss having the Masters and other planned events. The Board has done a great job keeping us safe and Zak has made a great transition into president. He has been keeping our games creative while he and Mike Beall have kept the courts and club house well maintained even through a termite attack. Cindy and Arlene and others cleaned out the office, the kitchen and storeroom and made everything well organized and like brand new.
The Executive Board, except Johnnie and Tom Grubb (who have not yet come South) met at 10:00 and then the General Board met at 11:00. All together 17 members attended the meeting all wearing masks and well distanced. Barb will have the minutes for us in a later post.
Following the meeting 15 members stayed to play shuffleboard using Zak’s new handicap schedule. It was very interesting how that worked out. Hope to see all our members back having fun and enjoying our shuffleboard courts with all our new safety protocols in place. So far there has been no attendance for the Tuesday and Thursday evenings. If you wish to start that up again, please feel free to contact Mike Beall 301-399-4867. See you on the courts.
We are now playing Saturday Shuffleboard games using a handicap scale. Please see the attached sheet of assigned handicaps. This is an updated handicap list and we have new handicap cards for everyone.
This morning Zak announced the winners from the October month’s tournament. So pleased to announce our PROS: 1st – Dennis Buelk, 2nd was a tie – Edna Triplett/Rex Galusha and our 3rd was also a tie – Zak Wonson/Charlie Jones.

Hi Everyone. I am posting this video so that when we go back to regular play everyone will understand the proper way to clean and wax our discs. Thanks for watching.
