Davis Memorial – Avon Park-November 25, 2016
Max Tate Speaks: A warm sunny day in Florida greeted shufflers for another successful Davis Memorial Tournament . The club was host to 56 players [28 Pros and 28 Amateurs] making for a perfect Mingle Singles event consisting of 14 full courts. Numbers were down somewhat from previous years but those attending had a wonderful time. Shufflers were greeted by Dick Davis, son of George and Clara Davis in whose memory the tournament is held each season.
Opening ceremonies were performed by past President, Don Rood who spoke of the Davis’s many years of active membership at the Avon Park Seniors Activities Club.
I want to give you a link to the 2013 Davis Memorial. It gives you access to a Good Slide Show! https://theshuffler.net/2013/11/30/another-successful-davis-memorial-at-avon-park/ A Slide Show which is representative of the Davis Memorial.
Good Shuffling. Stan McCormack, 2016 11 26.
