Allen Dronsfield Speaks: The Northern District held it’s 3rd. event of the season. This week we were at the historic site and club of Coronado/Mainland. Located right on Flagler Ave. and 3 blocks from the beach, it attracts many people walking towards the beach, as well as vehicle traffic. The aroma of food in the air makes this facility and club a fun place to go be.
If my totals are correct we had 27 teams in this Any Dbls. event. Donna King and Richie Burrell, Director this tournament with the help of Carolyn Burrell and Pat King.
Stan Williamson and I didn’t make the second day so as usual I’ve done a poor job of acquiring pictures of our winners and placements.
The courts were recently resurfaced and Nella-Sealed; looked great and ran well with their interesting drifts.
Next week we head west across the St. John’s River to the Mid-Florida Lakes facility for a No Two Pro event. Enjoyable club as well, it sits on the waters of Haynes Creek. Large clubhouse and on site lunches prepared on the grill.
This was where Jack Wooten resided and his absence at this up coming event will certainly be noticed.
