Florida State Tournament Results: P16 & A14

The annual Florida State Shuffleboard Association Hall of Fame induction banquet and state sponsored singles championship was held last week in Bradenton. The banquet, held at Trailer Estates, was beautiful and everyone who helped produce it should be proud. The nine inductees gave wonderful speeches, capped off by Larry Brown, who nearly brought the room to tears with his. Congrats to everyone involved with the event and those who were inducted. I’ve added pictures from the banquet to the end of this post.

This tournament is always the longest of the season due to play stopping at 3:30 Monday so everyone can get to the banquet on time. As usual, it lasted three full days. Even the men’s walking division had to finish up Wednesday morning. I was honored to play against the only two male members of the 1,000 point club, Glen Peltier and Earl Ball, in this tournament, and even more honored to add my name to a plaque that the great Jim Miller has his name on five times.

The win boosted Hall of Famer Diana Allen to a tie for 11th place in the season’s point standings and also moved Gary McGaffey to 11th on the men’s side in what continues to be a strong season for him.
