BOB PERKINS ELECTED TO THE CENTRAL DISTRICT HALL OF FAME
A Good Guy Gets Rewarded!

Yesterday, January 6th, the Florida Shuffleboard Association, Central District, Board of Directors elected Bob Perkins to the Hall of Fame in the Special Award Category. And Bob is special, back in 2007 when the Zephyrhills Tourist Club was in desperate straits He bought the shuffleboard courts and property to save the Club. The Club was shocked but grateful and went to work immediately to raise money to sustain itself. It not only sustained itself, it grew like a weed and everyone wanted to help improve the facility to the point that it is currently one of the finest shuffleboard facilities in the World. Bob was so impressed by the Club’s efforts that he helped them form a Corporation and he gave the Facility to the Club in 2009. You would be hard pressed to find a more successful Club anywhere. When you get done reading this far and reading his nomination letter from President, Henry Strong, you may be tempted to say that’s fine for Zephyrhills but what did he do for the rest of the Central District? Well, stop and consider this; would all of those players from Zephyrhills, that make up a good share of all the tournaments be there otherwise? The answer is no, because the Club is made up of onesies and twosies from many parks and those people wouldn’t have known each other, and had each other for support, so they wouldn’t be traveling. Many have no park and wouldn’t be playing at all. So, when you see the many, many travelers from the Zephyrhills area at a tournament, remember who gave them a chance and think about where the tournament would be without them. Think about the Officers they furnish for the District, the tournaments they have sponsored and the financial help they’ve given other Clubs, or what the condition of many courts would be without the work they do.
Bob Perkins is not only a good guy, but a great man for shuffleboard.
