Some fun information and tips from Zephyrhills Shuffleboard Club

Because Mingles/Singles games are limited to short, 12 frame games, you only need to have more points than your opponent when the frames run out to win, but because of recording the winner’s scores for final result tie breakers, a little different strategy is required.

A For-Fun Singles Mingles

Wednesday, Dennis, after almost two years, ran a trial Singles Mingles play day. We only played three games and there was no entry fee. I think everyone had a great time and it gave us something new to work on. We had ten amateurs show up for the fun and only four Pro/State Ams come to play.  Dennis is planning to run another trial Singles Mingles next Wednesday and we definitely need some more Pro/State Ams to show up and play.  This is a chance for our amateurs to watch and learn from our pros while playing a fun game.

Pros/State Ams
First Place: Randy Radke with 178 points
Second Place: Dennis Buelk with 106 points
Third Place: Debbie Evans with 42 points

First Place:  Jack Koppelman with 194 points
Second Place:  We had a tie;
         Clint Buczkowski and Bill Van Note with 120 points

We Finally Made The Newspaper

On July 7th I sent the newspaper the article about our SPARC group meeting to play shuffleboard. I was very disappointed that it took until August 6th to finally get posted. By then the program had ended due to bad weather each Wednesday. We finally made the paper and we are so proud of the SPARCs group for their accomplishments in learning the game of shuffleboard and having a great time. Thanks to Mike and Karin Beall and Joan Sanford’s patient tutelage.  We will continue again next year.
