SHUFFLEBOARD SCHOOL A SUCCESS
Forty-five players on seven courts at Bradenton last Saturday, Feb. 23 sharpened their skills with help from about a dozen “Professors”, mostly Pros. Each student was helped to move forward in their development as a competitor by those best able to assess any deficiencies and provide help.
Historically, several of those students have gone forward in tournament play and enjoyed their progress. All were encouraged by Florida President Dave Kudro and Bradenton Shuffle Club President Ron Nurnberger. The “Dean” of the school was proud of all present.
We offer to hold a school at the invitation of Clubs who need help. Call 941 756-8548 to schedule a school for your park or area, yet this season or next season.
