Ron Nurnberger Speaks: There is always a ‘Story’ surrounding most State Shuffleboard Tournaments. At Avon Park Tuesday, it proved to be true again. In a exciting Ladies Final 1st Place Match, Rosemary Comeau (on left in pix) & Judy Holloway defeated two of the States best players in Ruthie Brown & Diana Allen.
But the STORY is that after many years of competing, Rosemary Comeau placed first in a State tournament for the FIRST time! All present gave her a well deserved round of applause. Congrat’s Rosemary!
On a side note, something took place Monday morning that put ‘chills” on my skin, if not most other players present. After Tom Clayton (President of the Avon Park Shuffle Club) did his usual professional & tactful welcome, all players stood and sang ‘O Canada.’ That was followed by the resounding singing of the Star Spangled Banner! With all that is going on in our country today it certainly gave that ‘Room’ a special feeling!
