It Could Only Happen In Shuffleboard!!!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERADuring the SGA 55+ Eastern Regional Games 2013 08 20, Arnold Mueller made a Shot that every shuffler would only dream of!! A shot that every shuffler would die for!!

First let me say that Arnold and Mary Mueller would be the first to agree that their Semi-Final match had not gone well. They ended up playing for 3rd in the final round.

Arnold and Mary played well in the “finals” BUT Arnold was not encouraged by what he saw on the scoreboard as he began play from the foot, on the final frame, the 16th frame of his final game of the tournament.  The Muellers were trailing by 30 points.

Should he win, he and Mary would place 3rd; should he lose they would place 4th.  I have to tell you that I was waiting to record the Win/Loss for my reporting, AND I had already recorded the LOSS for the Muellers.  It was not to be however.  Arnold once more looked at the Scoreboard; carefully took aim and delivered his last shot.  I am having trouble believing what I am writing!! When the dust settled, Arnold had put two of his opponent’s discs in the kitchen, and he had a 10 and a 7 on the Board, for a grand total of 55 points!! Muellers had won the match by 7 points!!

    One time I put Donna Johnston’s two discs in the kitchen but I know I didn’t make seventeen points besides that. That would have been a nice shot to see. Thanks for the article. Wilma
