Please Tell Me What You Know About Little River (Shuffleboard)

FSA_Logo[1]Please see the article to make sense of the title!

We have all lived long enough to know that it is sometimes strange how things happen!!  To-day was such a day as you will see as you read the linked story.

It is my sincere hope that the “Mystery Gentleman” accepts my 100th Anniversary Shirtinvitation and gets back.  The title of the article itself, is good advice.  Not only did the Anniversary T-Shirts catch the eye of the Mystery Gentleman, the checkout person at our grocery store also commented.    I think that in itself speaks well for the T-Shirts as a Promotional Item!!   Click: WEAR YOUR ANNIVERSARY Tshirt

    little river was a major club in miami thru the mid 1980s- the neighborhood where it was located changed radicaLLY into a haitian area and the players died off.it predates my start but it was a regular tournament stop including state tournaments and the club produced a few state hall of famers including mark brasheres in the 1960s.—

    I have many old photographs that were my Grandfathers of a tournament at Little River in the 1950’s. I also have many others from unknown places and clubs. He owned Dimco-Gray Company that made most of the equipment used at that time and was a big promoter. I have been digitizing many of the old photographs and slides that I have. I also have old 16mm movies he shot that will most likely contain shuffleboard playing around Florida.

    I’d be happy to share these with any interested.

    My Grandfather – Harry Willis – was President of Sore Park Shuffleboard Club (the relocated Little River Shuffleboard Club). He would travel nearly every year up to Hendersonville, North Carolina for the national championships. I remember, too, they often would attend matches down at the club in Coconut Grove in South Miami. Yes – I believe that Mark Brasheres was club President at one point. Mark was a handsome gentleman who I have a photo of next to my younger Sister Debra (she was probably only 5 or so years old in that photo) as Little Miss Shuffleboard.
