Linda Rebholz Reports on a very special tournament for the Central East Coast.

Fort Pierce host Medalist

Michelle Kubitscheck
City of Ft. Pierce, Facility/Program Specialist

Linda Rebholz Speaks: I have written a lot about the Fort Pierce shuffleboard courts and how people from other parts of the state love to come to our beautiful location. I want to thank the staff of the Riverwalk Center. Michelle Kubitscheck, City of Ft Pierce Facility/Program Specialist and Joyce Kobbe are the “angels” who look after us. They let us into the center early mornings of our tournaments so that we can make coffee and set up for our opening ceremony. They graciously see that our players have a place to eat lunch out of the cold and rain. We have made them honorary members of the Ft. Pierce Shuffleboard Club and hope that eventually we can see them on the courts with a cue!!

The Medalist was held on these courts on Thursday and Friday.

This is a M/L non-walking singles tournament and the winners go home with a coveted medal.
