IT ALL BEGAN RIGHT HERE!!

That is right Shufflers! Shuffleboard in Florida began on the sidewalk in front of this Daytona Hotel!  The Balls had been so enthused with their shuffling experience on a cruise they had taken that they knew their guests would love the game!

They were correct.   The game at once became popular and a number of the players subscribed the necessary funds to build the first cement court (then called a lane) near the Burgoyne Casino which became the forerunner of countless shuffleboard courts now found scattered throughout practically all of the cities of FL.

Can we, The Shufflers of the 21st Century, those setting the stage for the 2nd Hundred Years, demonstrate our enthusiasm, by joining in the Celebration on this our 100th Anniversary.

YOUR ANNIVERSARY COMMITTEE.  2012 10 05.
