Our club is now Hosting the New Smyrna Park where we have our CMS Shuffleboard courts. Please, every time you see trash, help by picking it up and placing it in the nearby trash barrels. We want to keep our park looking beautiful. Thanks for your help in keeping New Smyrna Beach and our park beautiful.
This tournament was called a Mulligan, because you were allowed to take one shot per person per game over again. It made it really interesting, especially when you remembered to use it. We had some really good results and lots of people seem to be enjoying the challenge. Here are the results of the tournament from Feb. 26th to March 19th.
First, Zak Wonson; Second, Stan Williamson; Third, Charlie Jones
Recreational winners: First, Marguerite Fortier; Tie for Second, Bob Stock and Bill Van Note; Tie for Third, Jane Tager and Dick Wood

I wanted to give our members who travel over the North Causeway bridge a heads up. It might be a good idea to come by way of the South Bridge until further notice. Please try to arrive early, when you come right at playtime it is hard on the hosts who have to set up not only the chips, but the courts and the discs. Thanks for your consideration.
Jack sent me another interesting shuffleboard video from the Royal Palms in Chicago. If you have time to watch, you might learn a thing or two.
An interesting article about Stan Williamson was sent to me. Stan is a member of the State Hall of Fame and a welcome member of our club. Watching him play is a lesson in possibilities. There is a portion of the article written by Earl Ball, another of the all time greats in shuffleboard.
Jack sent me an interesting video of the Amateur Canadian American 2020 Shuffleboard Championship. It takes place in St. Petersburg. It is a bit long, but interesting. Enjoy.
