Congratulations players. We had beautiful weather. Thank you to Ann who was assisted by Marcia for a job well done directing the tournaments.  We had a first happen this year. Cheryl Putnam took first place in the Pro Ladies’ Singles and her daughter, Marcia Clark, took first place in the Amateur Ladies’ Singles.
A big “Thank You” to the Battle Creek Club for hosting the State Tournaments this year.
The Caro Club is hosting two tournaments next week.  Wednesday is for Amateurs only and Thursday is the Pros only.  These are Draw Doubles.  The club address is 178 Park Dr., Caro.  If you have any questions regarding these tournaments call Tom Putnam at 989-710-1251.
It was a particularly good day and turnout for players from the Southwest Cost District in Florida. Not only did players from that district sweep the pro singles events, they annually have a large turnout of players in Michigan tournaments. Pictured below are the winners of the singles tournaments and the entire SWC contingent represented in Michigan.

Florida’s Central District also had a strong turnout. It’s great to see shufflers from other parts of the country supporting shuffleboard in different states.
