Fine Words by One of the Best, Glen Peltier!!! 2019 03 17

Glen Peltier Speaks:  People ask me all the time who I feel has been the best shuffleboard player of all time. I have to be honest and say many of us have been the best at a certain time in our career. I feel that I have known at least fifteen men that I would put in that category. There is one category that Earl Ball owns. Earl has elevated his talent so he has the best amount of wins against loses I have ever seen. He does it year after year. He helps anyone who ask him for help. He plays great even though he is in constant pain. I have never heard Earl complain about his partner. As he gets older he will have more pain but I know he will work harder to succeed in his goal. I hear people say who was the greatest of all time and they mention someone else. I sure am glad that I have been fortunate enough to have played with so many great ones. None has been better than Earl.

Glen Peltier.

Stan Bober Speaks:  I worked for a nearly a day to put the results pix on our website? The website would not put the pix upright. It would turn them sideways. For some reason and with the help of the Prevost’s, the pix are in an upright position. Sorry for the delay.  Go here to see the fine results!!! https://wcdshuffle.yolasite.com/tournament-results.php

SHUFFLEBOARD and AXE THROWING COME TO WALKER’S POINT!! City of Milwaukee.

Axe Throwing Comes to Walker’s Point

Marla and David Poytinger, owners of AXE MKE (1924 E. Kenilworth Pl.), are bringing an axe throwing and floor shuffleboard bar to 230 E. Pittsburgh Ave. It will be called NorthSouth Club, with the north side of the building revolving around axe throwing, and the south side around shuffleboard.
Marla Poytinger spoke with Urban Milwaukee about the plans:
Separated activities will coincide with matching themes. The axe-throwing portion will follow a cozy, “northern” theme while the shuffleboard club will have a beach-like, “southern” feel. The drink menus will be tailored to fit each experience, with two different menus to fit each side. Local beers and fun, interesting craft cocktails will compliment both themes. “At all of our venues, we try to make them experiential and immersive,” she says.
Following the format of AXE MKE, NorthSouth Club will forego a kitchen and will instead serve small snack items. The business will also partner with local restaurants and caterers for food options for private events. Poytinger says the lack of cooked food prevents them from being a competitor to nearby businesses. “We want to be an asset to the community and share customers,” she says.
Exact hours have not been decided. However, Poytinger says NorthSouth club will be open daily except for Tuesdays. The bar will also be closed by 11 p.m. on weekdays and 12 a.m. on weekends.
