Bob Smith Speaks: State mixed tournament was held Monday Oct 16-17 at Lee County Shuffleboard Club in the Southern District. A few of the state’s best players ended up in the same bracket, so some had to go home early.
In first place main, no stranger to shufflers, Colleen Austin can not only edit our Preview and perform numerous computer duties, but she is also competitive on the courts. Colleen teamed up with Pete Sikoski who is well known in the winners circle.
First place in consolation went to third year pro, Deb Norton, and husband Jack who got his final pro point at Avon Park this season. Together they are going to be a strong team going forward.
Although we had 5 Hall of Famers in the finals, the Southern District did extremely well with 5 players in the main and 6 players in consolation.
1st main Colleen Austin – Pete Sikoski 1st con Deb Norton – Jack Norton
2nd main Ken Offenther – Marietta Cobb 2nd con Cecille Messier – Joe Messier
3rd main Jim Miller – Nancy Sclafani 3rd con Joyce and – Mike Marquis
4th main Dianna Allen – Jerry Holbrook 4th con Tom Mason – Joyce Radcliff
