MARKING LEVELS OF ACHIEVEMENT IN SHUFFLING!! CONGRATULATIONS TO Pat Stockman on the left, and to Linda Marshman on the right!!
The Central District of the Florida Shuffleboard Association (FSA), decided in 2003, that they would celebrate the success of a player when he/she achieved a point total of 100 points! Points are allocated on the basis of 5 points 1st in the Championship Event; 4 for 2nd; 3 for 3rd; 2 for 4th; 2 for 1st in Consolation; and 1 point for 2nd, 3rd and 4th in Consolation. Competition is keen at these weekly events ~ average attendance 70 shufflers, plus or minus. Winning does not come easily, winning does not come often. Skill, ability, determination, judgment, and yes enthusiasm and desire all help in the Sport of Shuffling! With reference to my comment re “glass ceiling” in the Title, the CD of the FSA has Men and Women shuffle in the same tournament; specifically we almost never have separate divisions!!! Pat and Linda will be the first to tell you that Men are almost as good as women!!!!
