Joan Cook epitomizes the qualities needed to “wear the green jacket”!!

Joan 1 ReducedIf you have not seen anyone sporting such a jacket it is no surprise; there is only ONE and the proud owner is Glen Peltier!! Both the Green Jacket and the White Jacket are donated by The Allen R. Shuffleboard Co; the White Jacket in recognition of earning the right to play in the Florida State Masters; the Green in recognition of achieving 1,000 lifetime points.

I don’t think I have to share with you that points do not come easily in the FSA (Florida Shuffleboard Assn.) It takes a great deal of skill and a great deal of determination; AND even with the above attributes, it takes many years applying these skills throughout the State of Florida on a weekly basis.

One female shuffler is very close to earning the distinguished honour of wearing the Green Jacket!! That woman is Joan Cook, who with her win in Hawthorne while partnering with Arlene Guerrini, came within 5 points of reaching the magical 1,000 points!!

Speculation is rampant as to the date of attaining the one thousandth point!!! Will she wait until the State at Betmar on 2014 10 27?? I think not; it would be “nice” but the risk is just too high!! Joan with her partner will be “going for every point they can get”, be it at PO3 partnering with Ellen Davis, PO4 partnering with Stan Williamson, or subsequent Tournaments.  Whenever or wherever it happens, it will be A MOMENT TO REMEMBER FOR SHUFFLEBOARD!!  I am betting that it will happen soon, very soon, and Joan will have good reason to CELEBRATE!!
