Betmar of the CD Hosts CDP08B and CDA08B 2017 12 08 and 09.

HOUGHTALING/RUESS WIN District Pro hosted by Betmar.

John Houghtaling of the Zephyrhills and DeLane Ruess, Betmar, won the Pre-Christmas Central District Pro Draw Shuffleboard Tournament at the Zephyrhills Club on December 8th. They almost meant their Waterloo in the ¼’s. The match went three games and they trailed by 58 points at the half way point in the games. Only 8 frames to go and half the hammers (last shot) belonged to the opponents who got a bit  complacent and the roof caved in on them as Houghtaling and Ruess came charging back and won by 9 points. They didn’t lose any other game in the Tournament.

Don McNeil and Doug Blair, both of Betmar, won the Amateur Championship. They fought hard to win every match and would have been gone in the ¼’s but McNeil made a “Hail Mary” shot. The opponents had the winning block on the board and the point all jammed up. All Don could do was wind up and fire away, hoping for the best and don’t you know he cleared everything out and wound up on the 10 with the winning score. It happens that way sometimes!  Thanks to Earl Ball for sending this along!!  2017 12 09.
Dave Sanborn and Bob Pembroke earned PRO STATUS competing in the Amateur tournament.  Bob Pembroke on the left; Dave Sanborn on the right.  “Congrats” to each!!
