Saint Louis Shuffleboard Club
In 2013 while competing in the St. Louis Senior Olympics, Stu and Mary Rose Cassell met brothers Mike and Bob Bruce during their doubles shuffleboard match. It was then they found out that there was a small group of shuffleboard players that met each week to play on the outdoor shuffleboard courts at Des Peres Park, in Des Peres, Missouri.
Stu joined this group, headed by Gen Vanmatre, which has since grown to twenty four members. Over the course of the past three years the Saint Louis Shuffleboard Club has acquired indoor courts from Allen Shuffleboard and plays indoors in the winter or when it rains at the Gateway Salvation Army Community Center.
Members of the Saint Louis Shuffleboard Club competed in tournaments this year in Missouri, Indiana, Iowa, Illinois, and Kansas. As a group they won 64 gold medals, 31 silver, and 18 bronze. Several of the competitors plan on participating in the 2017 National Tournament.
