SHUFFLEBOARD SCHOOL FEBRUARY 23
On Saturday, February 23 at 9:00 a. m. at Bradenton Shuffleboard Club, 1525 Ballard Park Drive(zip code 34205 for GPS), we will offer Shuffle School. If you prefer, call it Shuffleboard University. The dean is John L. Brown. There will be a professor on each court of 4 students. The first half hour will be history of this ancient sport, orientation to useful factors about it, and a glimpse of the variety of ways Shuffle is organized and played. This will be interesting and useful.
We will try to meet each student where their development has brought them and encourage each one to grow in skills and strategy for their own pleasure and ability.
We plan for up to one and one half hours on the court, but if you want to leave sooner or stay longer, you are free to decide. Shuffleboard is a great fraternity of ladies and gentlemen and many relationships can last a lifetime. Tuition js free and worth every bit of it.
It is helpful to know how big the crowd will be, so feel free to let us know at any tournament, or call 756-8548 (John Brown), or leave word at 747-6184 (BSC).
