A17 Amateur (State) Open to All Amateurs. Sebring, FL

Taking 1st; Cindy and Bruce Shidler

Cindy and Bruce performed with distinction!! The winning match was against the very tough team of Walt Pickarell and Larry Harvey.

Barry and Marie Leibold, SEC District.

Ten Teams Showed up for this State Event!!! The “Special Couple”, by reason of being the ONLY couple from beyond CD, were the Leibolds, Marie and Barry  of Boynton Beach, SEC District.  Shufflers, that is 150 miles, 2 hours and 40 minutes.  I asked Marie and Barry if they would share a few thoughts with our readers; they said this:

Leibolds Speak: Hi Stan: Was nice to meet you today at Sebring and share some stories about Shuffleboard.
Barry and I have spent time wintering in Florida for about the last 10 years. It was only last year that we joined the shuffleboard club in Boynton Beach and were introduced to tournament play and the strategies involved in the game and became State Amateurs. We heard about the courts in Sebring from some of the Pros in our area that had attended tournaments there. It sparked an interest in us to see Sebring and the courts. We can say that we enjoy the area and the people at the shuffleboard court and the apple pie, mmm. We look forward to returning to the area again in the future.  Barry & Marie Leibold.

Shufflers, those shufflers from SECD who travelled to Lakeland to participate in P19, (get this) travelled 3 hours and 30 minutes, to cover the 183 miles. MapQuest tells us, the gasoline for JUST one way, costs  $14 .30!!!  Do you think that is why Kenny Offenther works so hard to be IN THE MONEY???? lol.
