The colloquial term for the Central District Masters has, over the years, been called the Reiny Masters. Technically the Reiny label applies only to the District Amateur Men and Women. If you are interested in HOW and WHY the Reiny began, enter the words Reiny Masters into the search rectangle, top right of the page, and hit search. Reiny with pipe.
The Reiny contestants, i.e. the Top 8 Men and Top 8 Women based on the number of wins during the season, compete by playing Non Walking Singles, 12 Frame Games. They play each of the other 7 players in the Top 8. (The State Am and the Pros play the same format.) This makes for two full days, two very heavy days of shuffleboard!! If you click here: http://theshuffler.net/2014/03/20/cd-reiny-state-am-and-pro-masters-lakeland-courts-2014-03-20-and-21/ you will be taken to the names, c/w pix of each and every competitor in each of the 3 Divisions!! To-day, 2014 03 21, we had a number of positive comments about Gary’s framed pic sitting on the table at the Courts, the pic of All of Us with the Zephyrhills Water Sign. When the window opens, (link above) CLICK ONCE ON THAT GREAT PIC!! It brings it up so clear that you can almost see the colour of our eyes!!!!! (Well, Almost!!! lol >> try it)
And I will now insert a pic of the 6 Female Reiny Players, far left, not in order of finish.
Center pic is of Barbara Wright, 2nd, (in blue) and Katy Walker, 1st, (in white) holding her plaque. President Bob is presenting the Reiny Trophy in the center pic. (Remember to click on pix once to expand)
On the extreme left we have the Reiny Di Am Champion JohnHoughtaling receiving the Plaque from President Bob. In the pic in the center we have John and the 2nd place competitor Ed Dodson. The pic on your right is of the remainder of the players in the Reiny Di Am group.
I am now going to provide you a link to a Slide Show. I will add the State Am and Pro Pix as I write those postings. That will be tomorrow. Here is the link: http://photopeach.com/album/12lw023 Do Come Back!!
