P12A hosted by Lee County (State Tournament) Dec. 18th to 20th.

Bob Smith Speaks:  It was kinda fun watching 2 ex-state FSA Presidents compete for 1st in the main event. Carl Eby who doesn’t play state these days and Phil Rebholz who this season has 3 1st places out of 4 tournaments he has played. Phil teamed up with Ray Buck to win 1st Place and Carl had one of his fellow Riverwoods shuffler, Ron Hargis who will be a pro in the fall. Good battle but the 2 hall of famer came out on top. The consolation was won by Jim Miller and Clarence Gingerich.

The ladies division was won by Canadian shufflers Maureen Bryan and Dawn Hammond. Consolation was won by Helen Biaggi and Flo Kowalewski. The Southern District had 11 of 16 in both divisions. Go Southern District.
