The CM Shuffleboard Club hosted the Northern District Pro Only/Amateur Only Doubles on Feb 28th/ Mar 1st. Both days were absolutely gorgeous for playing this tournament. Richie and Carolyn Burrell were our outstanding Directors with an assist from Bonnie (in training).
Marguerite Fortier was hard at work in the kitchen and our regular court clean up crew (& new member Charlie Copley) arrived to help prep the courts for the competition. Kristin Akin from Edward Jones (321-514-7495) was our generous sponsor arriving with donuts and a friendly smile. CM Shuffleboard also co-sponsored this tournament. We had a 50/50 drawing which Mouse Woven won ($$). Tom Carbonell called us to order with a silent prayer and then the Pledge of Allegiance.
We drew our courts and played all day with a break for lunch. Thank you to Tom Carbonell who made a wonderful Pulled Pork on rolls for those interested in buying an inexpensive hot lunch(sold out). Thank you to our volunteers who worked during the two days to support the participants (Lola Ho, Candy Kordeleski, Rich Kordeleski, Cindy Wonson, Pete Butchko, Mary Harlow, Sid Pomainville, Gerry & Connie Bousquet and Jeanie Wachter). If I have left anyone out, Please know that you are also appreciated.
