Last night, February 9th, the CM Shuufleboard Club participated in our First Mardi Gras Parade. It was a typical chilly February Florida evening. Twenty (20) club members showed up in costume to help with final decorations before heading out to the NSB Mardi Gras parade starting line. A well deserved shout-out goes to Tom Grubb and his helper Susan McLain for supplying a cute three wheel pedal bike as “our parade float”. Also Betty Buccini, Johnnie Conner and others did a great job in preparing our club banners, in such a short period of time, in order to be used in the parade. Members marched and held the club banners throughout the parade. We all tossed out Mardi Gras beads, cheered, acted silly and called out to the parade onlookers to come join us to play shuffleboard. The parade was loud, colorful and festive with throngs of cheering people all along Flagler Ave. from Columbia/N. Atlantic avenue down to Pine Street. Everyone had a marvelous time and we should consider doing this again.
