This is directed to the Florida State Shuffleboard Board, Northern District Shuffleboard Board, Tavares Shuffleboard Board and the Committee, inspecting courts to approve courts to be worthy of play for Master’s tournaments.
On April 19th, 2017 a committee of three – Glenn Monroe, Earl Ball and Sharon Upson, visited Tavares courts to inspect the courts to see if they were acceptable for Master’s play. The final condition, was that the courts must be beaded and play will be with a different set of disc, other than what we use . This decision was analyzed very carefully, by the board of the Tavares Shuffleboard club and brought to the membership for discussion. Because the committee decided that our courts are not suitable as they are, please accept our release from hosting this event.
Our club enjoys the courts we have, with thanks to the city of Tavares, with whom we have a very close relationship. They do not ask much of us, but, to maintain our courts in a manner, for all to enjoy.
Our offer to host this event was accepted in 2014, and our intention was to expose our city , our district, our club and our members, to those, that are very accomplished and seasoned players, with skills to be ready to play on any court that is presented to them. We are sure you are aware, that we produce great players, that we are very proud of, showing accomplishments, beyond the goals that have never been achieved in the past. Namely our member Allen Dronsfield. A career, that began at Tavares Shuffleboard Club.
We are sure that the State and the Northern District, will find a venue, that will meet the needs of the committee to host this event.
Tavares Shuffleboard Club – President – Lorraine Layton, and board members: Marlyce Fistman, Mary Jane Neumann, Duane Lammers, Cheryl Cole, Rick Enright, Patty Foster.
