Sebring and Avon Park Shufflers, + Others from Across the District, Compete in the Last County Tournament of the Season.

Avon Park President Tom Clayton Makes a Presentation to Max and Ruth Tate.

About 75 Shufflers came together at Avon Park to-day to hold a “County Tournament”.   Following the official Opening, President Clayton asked Past President Stan McCormack  to come forward.  Tom presented Stan with a framed certificate of appreciation for serving two terms as President of Avon Park.

The President then announced this would be a special tournament in recognition of Max and Ruth Tate who had done so much to promote shuffleboard in the Sebring Avon Park area.   President Clayton in the top pic, is reading the words of appreciation to the audience.  The Tates will be wintering in Spain for the months of Jan and Feb of 2018, and for the month of March, they will winter in the Dominican Republic.   Lunch was special!!  Cake and Ice Cream were provided by the Club, some of it home made and all of it delicious!!  A Big Thank You to the Avon Park Club, especially the organizers of this special day.  The pic below is of those in the audience who spoke warmly about Max and Ruth on the “mike”.  Many others wished them well on a personal one on one basis.

L to R: Stan McCormack, Tom Clayton, Max and Ruth Tate, Joan Mondry and Dick Davis.
