100th Anniversary Committee Provides Financial Support to Others As THEY PROMOTE SHUFFLEBOARD!!

Remember the 100th Anniversary Committee??

EM 100th_LogoYou are excused IF YOU DO NOT! After all the actual anniversary year was 2013. May I suggest to you that if you would like to review some of the historical information regarding the history of Shuffleboard in Florida, you pick up the 2012-2013 PREVIEW and turn to page one. I draw your attention to the very last line of the referenced page. It reads: “The Committee established by the FSA to celebrate the 100th Anniversary hopes that our contribution has made a difference, and that readers will want to retain this 2012-2013 issue of the Preview as their personal historical document.”

The Anniversary Committee engaged capable and willing shufflers in each District to sell PRODUCT. The purpose was to draw attention; read promote shuffleboard. Sales by these key people generated us just over $5,000.00 in profit.

The Committee solicited ideas from across the State, ideas to promote Shuffleboard. We indicated that we would provide financial support to organizations who submitted ideas consistent with our objective. We have done just that and we, the Committee, believe that the Individuals/Clubs who received our financial support, have put in place an action plan which will enhance the interest, and ultimately participation in Shuffleboard.

On Wednesday, February 4th, 08:30 the first such event will take place at the Winter Haven Courts, 250 South Lake Silver Drive NW, Winter Haven. Contact person: Art Shorts shufflebugz@gmail.com
