Ron Nurnberger Speaks: Recently, The Bradenton Shuffle Club had a thought! Let’s try something new that will be Fun, Attract Amateurs, and fill some of the ‘Holiday’ Shuffle Downtime from State & District Tournaments. Thus ‘JINGLE MINGLES’ was created. Today (Friday, Dec 29th), 6 /16 frame games (with great prize money) format and with separate Pro & Amateur Divisions drew 71 Players! 39 Pro’s and 32 Amateurs! It was ‘Festive & Friendly’ with much ‘Jabbing & Needling’ on the most Enjoyable Atmosphere (one of those—-u had to be there type humor!). Tournament Directors were Joyce Marquis & Pat Batdorff.
PS: The Free ‘Holiday Cupcakes’ May also have helped!,
