The Shuffler has arranged with FSA State Tournament Director Glenn Monroe to answer your questions relative to The Rules!! Thus the title: “What’s The Rule?”
If You have a question you would like answered, send it to Glenn at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Unless otherwise stated, the most recent rules and regulations of the Florida Shuffleboard Association shall be used to answer all questions.
- Do we have to wait for the Tournament Director to stop play if it is raining?
No. The decision on when to stop play due to rain on the court belongs to the players. So long as play has not been stopped by the T.D., play may continue. However, any player may declare a stoppage of play on their assigned court due to a rain wet court. The T.D. will determine when or if play is to begin again. See Rule H.1.
- How do I go about becoming a Florida tournament director?
Prospective tournament directors should apply to their District Tournament Director or District President for training. In Florida, tournament directors go through a series of on the job training under the tutelage of a certified tournament director to learn the rules of shuffleboard and chart management. When they have demonstrated sufficient expertise, they will be recommended to the District President who may then appoint them to direct District tournaments. After a district director has demonstrated their competence at that level, the District President may present their name for certification by the F.S.A. board. Once approved by the board, they may begin to direct statewide tournaments. Article 14.
