1,000 Point Green Jacket Presented to Earl Ball!! (Only the 3rd in FL)

Jerry Deren Speaks:

What a glorious day to celebrate Earl Ball accepting his green jacket!!  

The green jacket in shuffleboard is similar to getting the green jacket at the Masters golf tournament. Only the best of the best receive the green jacket. 

Earl and his Beautiful Wife Vivian

Earl will be the third person of the Florida Shuffleboard Association (FSA) to wear this jacket. The other two are Glen Peltier and Joan Cook.  All 3 Below.

Unless some shuffleboard phenomenon comes along in the next decade, Earl just may be the last recipient of the green jacket.  It took Earl nineteen years to attain his thousand points.  Joan Cook Presented Earl his Green Jacket. Green Jackets are provided by Allen R. Shuffleboard.  That is Jim Allen sharing a light moment with Earl and Glen.

The celebration at the Betmar club house started out with MC David Earl taking the mics. Doyle Maxie’s son said the prayer. While dinner( chicken cordon bleu, green beans, baked potatoe, & desert was served a number of speakers ….David Kudro, Neil Percy, Glen Peltier, Joan Cook, Michael Zellner, Nancy Scalfania, Jay Fitzpatrick,
Phil Rebholz, Ken Offenther, Joe Messier, Johnthan Schapp, Bob Perkins Cindy Woods , John MacLennon,Glenda Brake, George Darwin, & Judy(head cook @ Betmar) offered appropriate remarks in praise of Earl’ accomplishment!!

At ~ 4:30 P.M. David Earl, who did a “GREAT” job MCING, got Earl on stage and Earl  thanked every one who came to his celebration.

Charlie’s Angels, the 3 of us started together and will enter the HOF together, Me with Nancy Sclafani and Linda Marshman.

    It was a great ceremony congratulating Earl ! Of course we all know it took a lot of understanding and patience also from his lovely wife Vivian. Thus, I must say congratulations to both.!
