Some of you just might be old enough to remember the Lawrence Welk Show??

It continues to this day. You can catch it on PBS Buffalo WNED. It is one hour of great music.  This evening they are playing their 27th Thanksgiving Show from, I believe 1980.  It is OH SO GREAT look back and listen to HOW THINGS USED TO BE!!

There are NO ADDS, NOT ANY??????  Mark your calendar for every Sunday night at 7 p.m.  (19:00 hrs).  Please leave me a message and tell me IF YOU ENJOYED.

NEW ‘VENUE’ WORKS WELL AT TRAILER ESTATES SWC DISTRICT TOURNEY 2018 11 17

THURSDAY BEGAN WITH MINGLE/SINGLES: 6 — 16 FRAME GAMES (new partner/court) EACH GAME. THOSE WITH MOST WINS (points scored used as tie breaker) WOULD THEN PLAY FRIDAY. THE TOP 16 LADIES AND TOP 16 MEN (Separate Divisions) WOULD DRAW A PARTNER (Friday) THAT THEY WOULD STAY WITH FOR POSITION ROUND AND FINAL AND ALSO PLAY 2 of 3 — 75 POINT GAMES INSTEAD OF FRAME GAMES (as they did Thursday).

SOUND CONFUSING? IT REALLY WASN’T (even though rain created some adjustments), IT PROVED TO BE VERY FAIR, GIVING ALL PLAYERS AN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY TO WIN.

LADIES WINNERS: (left to right): 1st Place; Kathy Laver & Cindy Slaughterbeck. 2nd; Linda Wallingford & Shirley McCullough. 3rd; Cheryl Putnam & Margaret Hartzler. 4th; Adriana Cramton & Arlene McCague.
CONSOLATION: 1st; Donna Schultz & Lois Wegner. 2nd; Dian Darrah & Pat Tomko. 3rd; Janice O’Sullivan & Siggy Gudzus. 4th; Jane Schram & Evelyn White.
MENS WINNERS: (left to right) Larry Mardis & Dave Evenson. 2nd; Tom Putnam & John Mickle. 3rd; Bob Kendall & Ira Snook 4th; Faron Vandegrift & Scott Fenimore.

Update!! Not “Breaking News”, BUT “Positive Encouraging Good News”

Lakeland President  John Schlaffer and Winter Haven President Marlene Corbeil above. Stan Speaks:  When I reported on Central District’s CD P06, I neglected to highlight the good will and co-operation between and among Shufflers.  Winter Haven’s President Marlene Corbeil has brought to my attention that since the WH Courts were not up to the required standard, Lakeland President  Schlaffer stepped up to the bat, and willingly agreed to WH using the Lakeland Courts for this Tournament.

In a report to me  this morning, Marlene said this:  Our courts are being resurfaced right now.  They are working hard. They City told me they would be ready for the next tournament. I sure hope so.
If not, I am confident that Lakeland will step up again.
John Schlaffer is a great President and really cares about shuffleboard.
