Jerry Deren Speaks:
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 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.
