Lakeland Outdoor Courts; Come and Enjoy!!
If you are a Shuffler, and you are NOT sure where you are shuffling this coming Monday, 2017 11 06, you should consider showing up at the Shuffleboard Club at 820 E. Robson Street in Lakeland FL at 08:30!! Get your driving directions here: https://www.mapquest.com/directions/to/us/fl/lakeland/33805/820-e-robson-st-28.083907,-81.949032
This tournament which is a STATE TOURNAMENT is open to all Amateurs!! NOT ONLY, it is open to every Amateur in the State of Florida!!! Don’t worry about it being overcrowded, Lakeland has many courts, many covered, and many out in the beautiful Florida Sun!! (See pic at top.)
Yes, you must pay a small amount to register to play, ($6.00 I believe) but even if you lose your first match, you get to play another!!! That gives you more than $6.00 worth of exercise and experience!! We are now up to lunch time; better bring your lunch!! You will need the energy!! This event is classified as an Any Doubles; that means you can take any partner you wish. Heck, why not take your wife, or even your friend’s wife???
Don’t let me mislead you! Your desire, your enthusiasm, and your judgment will all be tested!! And, if you find out it is “your cup of Tea”, you will be pleased to know that there is one such event just about every Monday, from now until March 14th, 2018. I told you in paragraph two that the event is open to all amateur shufflers in the State; the tournament to be held the “next week”, 2017 11 13, will be held in two different locations > Betmar and Lee County!! To become familiar with the full season schedule, go here: http://www.fsa-shuffleboard.org/schedules/AmSched2017-18.htm AND if you need directions to either of the two locations, click on the destination of your choice. Let’s say you decide to “go west”, that is to Lee County. Click on Lee County and Google will take you there!!
