CD Area Tournament hosted by Winters Park.

Dumais/Lambe win Area Shuffleboard Championship

Winters Park Shuffleboard Club hosted a Shuffleboard Tournament for Zephyrhills Area Players completed on Wednesday, February 21st.

The format was Pro/Am draw. Winters Park resident Ron Dumais drew Merv Lambe, ZSC, and they survived some close calls but Dumais’ home court knowledge paid off.  Lambe did his share to keep them in the matches but Dumais was on his game, and won three matches by shooting the opponent into the kitchen on his last shot, including the Championship game where he made the kitchen and scored to squeak out victory and give his team the Championship.

Earl Ball Shares With Us A Story With Anxiety!!

Judy and John Rocco Take First

Cindy Wood and Ken Thomas

4-PARK CHAMPIONSHIP

Earl Ball Speaks:  I decided to take a break last week so I skipped the District Tournament but on Friday, February 15th, I decided to go to the Sleepy Hollow Shuffleboard Club and watch the finals of the 4-Parl Amateur Tournament since one of our teams, Cindy Wood & Ken Thomas of Betmar, were playing for the Championship. I didn’t realize how nervous you can get when you’re watching a match and rooting for a certain team. I lived and died with their every shot and the match was two very close games that changed leaders several times but in the end the team of Jim & Judy Rocco of Bakers Acres won the Championship. I play over 50 tournaments a year and now I know why my wife can’t watch!!!

If you have a similar story, we will be Oh So Glad to Share With Our Audience!!

Sadness in the SEC: (South East Coast District) by Jay Fitzpatrick.

Sadness in the SEC: (South East Coast District) 

Today, Feb. 22, 2018, was the start of SEC Tournament #20 at Boynton Beach. It was the Elida Piccirillo Memorial Tournament sponsored by Vicente Piccirillo in memory of his late wife, Elida, who passed away last year.

Today also marked the start of the very last SEC Tournament to ever be held at Boynton Beach. Over the past 4 or 5 years, the Boynton Beach Club President, Frank Lamb, has been doing everything he could to keep the club alive and well.
We have held 3 or more SEC tournaments there each and every year for over 20 years. We have also held many, many FSA State Tournaments at Boynton Beach over the last couple of decades.

Unfortunately, the City of Boynton Beach is “tearing up” the shuffleboard courts and they are “tearing down” the Library, the Police Station, and the Arts and Theatre buildings.

New High-Rise buildings will be constructed starting this coming year.
Sometimes “PROGRESS” can be a pretty dirty word.

Jay Fitzpatrick – Tournament Director and past SEC President. 

Posted by Stan on 2018 02 22. Thanks so VERY MUCH Jay for that report.

SWC DISTRICT CARRIES THE “HEAVY LOAD” (P-21A) AT TRAILER ESTATES!

Flo Kowalewski

There are many shufflers who find Trailer Estates Courts to be ‘Tricky & Speedy,’ But as we know it depends where You normally play, because all Club courts everywhere have their ‘peculiarities.’ Having said that, SWCD Players faired well this week.

LADIES DIVISION WINNERS WERE : First Place: Pam Nurnberger & Ruthie Brown (HOF). Second Place Honors went to Flo Kowalewski & Joyce Smith.

MENS DIVISION WINNERS WERE (L-R): Mike Marquis & Steve Raimondi. Second place to Jerry Everett (HOF) & ‘Shorty’ Gingerich (not pictured).
