CHUCK HODSON WINS “ROLL OF CHAMPIONS” MEN’S DIVISION
DIANE BARDSLEY AND GLENDA BRAKE WIN WOMEN’S DIVISION
Chuck Hodson was pleased; to say the least, that elite Hall of Famer Paul Prescott thought so much of his talent that he asked him to be his partner for the Championship. Prescott, of the Lakeland Shuffleboard Club, knew what he was doing. Prescott is an outstanding kitchen player and felt he could keep the games under control and Hodson, no slouch at the kitchen, but better known for his hide and seek style didn’t disappoint scoring bundles of points and they needed them as every match went to a 3rd game but Prescott was able to win every lag for color giving them the advantage in each match. Hodson can expect his stock to rise and to be in demand after such a great showing.
In the women’s division Diane Bardsley teamed with Glenda Brake to win the Championship. Bardsley is an excellent off color player and she put her talent to the test as they lost two lags for color and had to win being at a distinct disadvantage. Brake, an excellent kitchen player kept them in the games until they could figure out how to win. The final match went until 7:00 in the evening so they had to beat off the mosquitoes too.
