Stan Bober, West Coast District Webmaster AND Jonathan Schnapp, Co-owner of Royal Palms partner!!

JONATHAN SCHNAPP (R), CO-OWNER OF THE NOW FAMOUS ROYAL PALMS SHUFFLEBOARD CLUB IN BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, VISITS PINELLAS COUNTY SHUFFLEBOARD IN A BIG WAY! HE ENTERED WCD’S PRO DOUBLES TOURNAMENT HELD AT CLEARWATER SHUFFLEBOARD CLUB.  (Tournament began on 2016 02 25) 

JONATHAN WAS LOOKING FOR A PARTNER AND 4TH PLACE ISA WINNER, FRANK NIZIOLEK GAVE WCD’S WEBMASTER, STAN BOBER, A CALL. FRANK KNEW STAN’S PARTNER HAD TO CANCEL AND HE ALSO WAS LOOKING FOR A PARTNER.  (Stan is on the left in pic above)

THEY DREW ONE OF, IF NOT, THE TOP SEED (GEOFF BELL & BUD PITTMAN) FOR THEIR FIRST MATCH. EVEN THOUGH THEY LOST, THEY MADE A VERY RESPECTFUL SHOWING LOSING BY A CLOSE MARGIN EACH GAME.  

JONATHAN & STAN (Bober) WENT INTO THE CONSOLATION ROUND AND DREW LADY PRO’S JAN COTE & NICOLE HUOT. THEY LOST THE FIRST GAME BY A NOSE BUT CAME BACK AND WON TWO NAIL BITERS TO WIN THE MATCH!  JONATHAN’S FIRST EVER PRO WIN. WE ADVANCED TO THE NEXT ROUND AND NEEDED A WIN TO MAKE IT TO THE CONSOLATION’S SEMI FINALS (1st – 4th finish).

GUESS WHO WE HAVE TO PLAY NEXT? NONE OTHER THEN 4th PLACE ISA FINISHER, FRANK NIZIOLEK & PARTNER CARL ROGERSON. FRANK & CARL FLAT OUT PLAYED US AND SENT US HOME.

Stan’s Comments:  Jonathan and I had a great time and most importantly, FUN!  That’s what shuffleboard is all about. We gave it our best and I have no doubt Jonathan is Pro qualified! Jon clears the board like an enraged tiger and plays the board with great finesse. I would be his partner again anytime, anywhere.

NEWS FLASH:  Tournament Finals:   1st Place Main;  Bud Pittman & Geoff Bell. 1st Place Consolation;  Frank Niziolek & Carl Rogerson
