Tom Grubb and his partner Cheri Samon from St. Pete, just participated in a tournament at the Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club in Chicago. There were 64 teams and they made it through to the sweet sixteen in Consolation. Tom had a lot of fun and got to meet Earl Ball, an old partner of Stan Williamson’s. He sent me some pictures from the trip. If you would like to check out their club, here is the website. https://www.royalpalmschicago.com/
Today we held an in-house tournament with a few guests from Deland in addition to Rod and Donna from MidFlorida Lakes. Cindy, Zak, Jerry and Arlene arrived early to set up the coffee, donuts and along with our court manager Mike Beall, set up the courts for play. Bob Augusto and Vaughn Long donated the water for the day and Janet Shira donated the donuts. The day could not have been more beautiful with just a touch of wind. Cindy and Arlene along with some assistance from Bonnie, set up the charts and the list of entrants in the tournament. We had twelve (12) Pros and (12) Amateurs sign up for the challenge. There was a small entry fee and $100 donated from the club for prize money.
The purpose of the tournament was to help train our new directors, so Rod came to check that we had it all in hand. Everything went so smoothly. Cindy was our main director with Arlene as treasurer and co-director. We played twelve frame games so we could finish in one day. It was a draw tournament with Pros playing with Amateurs. Congratulations to all the players on a great game played. The results were:
1st Place: Charlie Jones and Valarie Simons
2nd Place: Chris Inga and Tim Pergrem
3rd Place: Dennis Buelk and Mark Gephart
4th Place: Stan Williamson and Janet Shira
1st Place: Rex Galusha and Kathryn Feindt
2nd Place: Jerry Jabaut and Bob Augusto
3rd Place: Randy Radke and Joan Sanford
4th Place: Donna Lewis and Vaughn Long.

Please note that due to a lack of participation for the lessons and a change in our regular play time, the separate lessons on Mondays will be suspended until the Fall. Please remember that although regular lessons are cancelled, Mondays are days you are allowed to come and get “coaching” from the members you are playing with. Other players are always willing to give you pointers. The best way to learn is to play with a Pro or more experienced Amateur.
On Friday April 22nd we will begin a new monthly tournament schedule. Zak will award the prize money from the March tournament then. Thanks for your patience. Ciao!
In order for our club to function properly, it is so Important for us to Thank our Volunteers and hard workers who keep our club going. Mike Beall is our Court Manager and he does such a fantastic job keeping our courts beautiful. Saturday he gave up his free time to clean and wax our courts by himself. He is continually blowing leaves and killing weeds. Our courts always look beautiful. Thank you Mike for a great job.
