Bob Jones Jr passes along updates on the Ohio State Shuffleboard season
The Bluffton Any Doubles on Monday, August 12th concluded the 2019 Ohio State Shuffleboard Association season. It was sponsored by Baker Farms and P.E. Services. An unexpected morning rain shower delayed the start of the tournament by about an hour. 17 teams were challenged by playing through alternating periods of drizzle, wind, and hot sun. Bluffton Club members worked hard all day long to keep the courts playing well during all the changing conditions. Larry Mardis and Bluffton Club President Steve Slaughterbeck were the best at adjusting to the changing speeds of the courts and won the final championship of the season.
There was much chatter during the day as players were hoping to earn points to improve their position in the Roll of Champions standings. Congratulations to Bill Hoyer whose third place finish was enough to move from 2nd to 1st and win the men’s season point championship. Sam Allen’s second place finish vaulted him from 6th to 4th in the point standings. Wilma Rudolph is the women’s season point champion. The top 5 men and women earn automatic invitations to the Roll of Champions Singles tournament to be held next summer. The top 8 are presented with pins.
