29th or 99th Annual Davis Memorial Tournament at Avon Park? Dick can’t remember !!!

29th or 99th Annual Davis Memorial Tournament at Avon Park?
Dick can’t remember !!!

Dick Davis & The Avon Park Senior Activities Center have hosted this tournament the day after Thanksgiving for so long that nobody can remember exactly when it started. But, Dick is pretty sure he started it when he was about 60 years of age. That doesn’t help us much in pinning it down since we’re not sure if Dick is 21 or 121 now. Stan has told us that Dick was President of our Club 100 years ago, so go figure.

We were very pleased to host 64 players this year and Super-Pleased that so many of our new Amateurs (that Dick has been instructing) showed up ready to play! We have over 60 new members who have joined us this past year, so it wasn’t too surprising that we had 34 Amateurs and 30 Pros participate in this event.

Our Prize Purse of $400.00 was distributed to the Top Twelve Shufflers of the day. Most of the participating Pros (not all, of course) were very happy to see these newcomers to our sport play so well and display the positivity and good sportsmanship that we all have come to expect of all participants in this great sport.

THE WINNERS:
#1 Kevin Robinson
#2 Ann Davies
#3 Joe Castiglia
#4 “Tink” Mealy
#5 Al Emmendorfer
#6 Jim Howard
#7 Mary Temoke
#8 Ruth Tate
#9 Gene Tomlinson

Avon Park President, Tom Clayton.  2018 11 28.
