St. Louis Distinguishes Themselves at the National Senior Games in Albuquerque

The National Senior Games were held a couple of weeks ago in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Stu Cassell and others from the St. Louis Shuffleboard Club made the trip. The St. Louis Club is relatively new in relation to other clubs across the country. Their enthusiasm and success are great for the game and should be admired. The report and pictures from Stu are below. Great job, everyone!
Additionally, Debbie and Darryl Stuart of North Carolina won gold in the 70-74 year old open doubles event. Debbie and Darryl have competed in a few ISA events, and will play in Austria this year. They’re big proponents of the sport. Congrats!
“Our journey to Nationals began in 2018 at the Indiana State Games in Evansville.  A group from the St. Louis Shuffleboard Club competed there in order to qualify for the 2019 National Senior Games.  We went to Evansville, thinking if we didn’t qualify there, we’d still have a chance at the Missouri State Games.  As it turned out, everyone qualified at the Indiana State Senior Games.
13 of us traveled by car, RV, and plane to Albuquerque, New Mexico over a two week period.  Our members competed as singles and doubles in age categories that ranged from 55 to 79.
We came home with a Singles and Doubles medal and ribbon total as follows:
5 Gold, 5 Silver, 2 Bronze, 1 Fourth Place Ribbon, 1 Sixth Place Ribbon, 1 Seventh Place Ribbon, and 2 Eight Place Ribbons.
Considering we only play 1-2 times a week, I think we did pretty good.”

Lakeside History And Tournament Information

Bob Jones passes along some history about the Lakeside Club and information about upcoming Ohio state and national tournaments.
“The Ohio Shuffleboard season comes to Lakeside for two weeks on July 8th for the Bill Slyh Any Doubles, followed by the Ohio State Doubles, then the slate of National Tournaments beginning July 15th.

On the Major League Baseball calendar, July heralds the time when the primary contenders have been identified and there is still time for a team currently off the pace to go on a hot streak and qualify for the playoffs.  Ohio Shuffleboard is similar.  Red Rudolph and Wilma Rudolph currently lead the 2019 Expert Point Standings. Many are hoping to win points in the Lakeside tournaments to push towards the top eight, who at season’s end earn a Roll of Champions pin.  The top 5 earn automatic invitations to next year’s Roll of Champions tournament.

So, who was Bill Slyh? Records in the Lakeside Heritage Society archives and conversations with people who knew him before his death in 1978 at age 90 give us some information. Bill Slyh was a High School math teacher from Cleveland, and was the second manager of the Lakeside courts serving from 1933-1955.  He started Lakeside’s first youth tournament in 1935, and was a proponent that men and women can compete equally.

The picture, from a July 1969 edition of the Peninsular News, shows Slyh with five Lakeside boys. On the far right is Chris Cermak, current president of the Upper Arlington Club and 2nd Vice President for Ohio,  who has won 9 national championships and counting.”
