The ‘Gorgeous’ Palmetto SWC District Shuffleboard Club hosted our 2nd Annual BLACK FRIDAY fun day tourney. Pro’s and Amateurs alike participated. Although a ‘rainy mist’ may have hampered attendance, over 50 players showed up and enjoyed the ‘free meal’ and great prize money.
Palmetto Club President Dave Evanson stepped outside after a 20 minute weather delay, looked to the heavens and asked for ‘Clear Skies!’ Immediately, the ‘mist’ subsided and play began.
But on this day (It was the Godson’s!); George Godson (former Canadian Hockey player) took first place in the Pro division while his wife Heather (still a great softball player in her own right) Took second!
In the Amateur division, Shirley Pendergast was first and Tony Deluca second.
