Fun Day Results – February 16, 2019

Today dawned a little cool but warmed up quickly. Thank you Volunteers. The Court Crew lead by Rich Kordeleski, Darrel, Harman, Paul Fortier, Gerry Bousquet and others, showed up to set up the obstacles for our Fun Day Challenge. The Kitchen Crew lead by Marguerite Fortier received  help from Tom Carbonell, Connie Bousquet, Candy Kordeleski and others. They set up the coffee, donuts and got the food ready for our hot dog lunch after the challenge. Barb Fortini registered the players and collected the entry fee while Bill Sweets collected for the 50/50.

Allen Best organized the teams and assigned the captains. Then Tom asked us to say a silent prayer and we pledged allegiance to our flag. The shufflers chose their chips and went to their assigned courts before the fun began. When we finished Shuffling, we cleaned up all the courts while Barb tallied the scores.  Felix Piscitelli won the 50/50.  Then we all gathered in the club house for our lunch of hot dogs, chips, drinks and desserts.

Allen read off all the scores starting with the lowest score up to the top three finishers.

FIRST PLACE: Candy Kordeleski (Captain), Loretta Cantalupo, Ghost and Robert Wolven with a score of 1220. SECOND PLACE: John Fortini (Captain), Bob Tager, Susan Bancroft and Bruce Bancroft with a score of 1170. THIRD PLACE: Bonnie Radke (Captain), Jan Sweets, Guy Godman, and Joe Kasben with a score of 1160.

Congratulations to everyone who participated. Hope to see you all here for the challenge next month. Mark your calendars for March 9th to have more fun and games. Ciao!

Everyone began arriving for our social time around 5:00 pm.  Marguerite and Paul arrived early and had the coffee going and the kitchen and tables prepped for receiving the food.  Many delicious kinds of food with wondrous scents filled the air. Thank you Tom for the wonderful pork roast.  We welcomed many new faces and enjoyed hearing from everyone.  We had around Forty (40) people attend the Pot Luck.  Martha Ebert won our 50/50.  Joan said the blessing for our dinner before we lined up.  When we were done with dinner everyone cleared the tables and put the chairs away.  Many people stayed for a friendly game of Bunco.

ND Tournament Directors Training – Feb 10, 2019

Lorraine Layton (Acting-President) and the Tavares Shuffleboard Club hosted a Northern District Tournament Directors training class given by Carolyn and Richie Burrell. The shuffleboard club provided us with coffee and donuts for our class which took approximately three hours.   There was a good turnout with Fourteen (14) people attending the class.   Thank you!

Dennis Abbenante, our new Records Keeper for the Northern District, greeted us all and explained his plans for eventually doing all our records keeping and tournament data management through a computer/Iphone. He thanked Richie and Carolyn for conducting the initial training of Tournament Director candidates before they can be Certified. Richie and Carolyn will continue Directing some of our tournaments through the end of the season. Since Carolyn and Richie are retiring from their Tournament Director duties at the end of this season, Dennis took this opportunity to recognize them for their outstanding contribution to the Northern District Shuffleboard Association for all their hard work and dedication throughout the years.

Richie, assisted by Carolyn, started from the beginning and explained the manual paperwork preparation a Director does the night before a tournament. They instructed us in detail on what to do when they first get to and during a tournament in order to have it running smoothly.  The directions/explanations were reasonably easy to follow and I think most everyone left with a good understanding of what the Tournament Directors’s work entails.  The Tournament Director candidates will still need to successfully participate in a tournament overseen by Richie before they can be certified. Everything associated with this training session was well done. Ciao!

Carolyn and Richie
