Remember the Press Coverage of the Millennial Event held at Bradenton Shuffleboard Facility early in April (2016)? The Shuffler gave extensive coverage to the event!! Dave Kudro, 1st VP of the FSA, has to-day, sent along an exciting, well done video, which is truly The Icing On The Cake to the Realize Bradenton Event!!! I have added the link to the video near the end of the article.
Realize Bradenton Executive Director Johnette Isham spent a part of the evening weaving her way through the crowd of shufflers and spectators. “How amazing to bring together young people, 18-35, with our mature and experienced shuffleboard players of the Bradenton Shuffleboard Club,” she said. “This is truly an inter-generational popup event to showcase one of Bradenton’s hidden assets — the Shuffleboard Park right off of 14th Street.” Isham has played shuffleboard before. “No,” she said when asked if she’s good at the game. “But you know what? What’s great about shuffleboard is you can be really competitive, and you can just have fun.”
Dave Kudro, a member of the Bradenton Shuffleboard Club, said he was there Friday evening to help new shufflers and to show them the enjoyment of the game. “It’s a little competitive, but it’s a lot of fun,” he said. “And I think we need something like this in Bradenton for the younger crowd.”

Thanks Dave!! As you pointed out in your e-mail, the video conveys a message and although it may not resonate with everyone, it gives us more possibilities, more ideas, to promote the game each of us enjoys so much!! Many thanks to those who produced the video. Stan McCormack. 2016 04 29.
