Kathy Brennan Said This!!!!

We need shufflers…. Many of us who have been around have seen many of our devoted shufflers age, become sick and eventually pass away. We, as a community of shufflers, need to find ways to bring new players into the game.
My question is , how?
Let’s let the FSA do it…. Let’s let the district do it…. Let’s let the clubs do it…. No let all of us do it.
If you see an new face hanging around the game, help him, encourage him, play with him (you might not win but the experience for him will never be forgotten)
Never cancel an amateur tournament due to lack of players….let them play… maybe they won’t get any points but they might get hooked on our game
At the club level…free lessons, free Friday nite shuffle for all ages, maybe a amateur league .. Do not get discouraged if the numbers are low, tell them to bring a friend. Put fliers out, put it in the webpage, and keep on going
At the district level….help your clubs advertise
Gain new parks, may sure they know what the district does and where they can go to shuffle
State … Encourage shufflers …encourage tournaments …encourage the district .. encourage the clubs ( holding any tournament, state or district , is a big job for the club an an expense)
We Need Shufflers……So let’s get busy finding them!

Kathy said the above after reading this: https://theshuffler.net/2017/12/30/earl-ball-said-this-and-you-reacted-and-that-is-good/

Well Said Kathy!!!! Stan. I still have the piece of COAL you gave me when we first met.

Earl Ball Tells Us A Great Christmas Story.

Posted on 2017-12-16 by stanistheman

The Harringtons;

CHRISTMAS-SOME LIVE IT ALL THE TIME!

Earl Ball Speaks:  I thought I would tell you a story that few of you would be aware of.

Bob Harrington, one of the shuffleboard players from the Zephyrhills Shuffleboard Club has related a couple of events to me over the last couple of weeks. PIC is of Bob and wife Maryann.

It’s been about three weeks ago now that Bob and a buddy were in Dade City one morning and noticed two young kids eating out of a garbage can. Bob gathered them up, took them into the restaurant, wasted them up and each kid downed two orders of bacon and eggs. One was about six years old and said that was the most food he’s ever had to eat. The people who ran the restraint weren’t too happy with Bob for bringing them into the restaurant, but they didn’t dare challenge Bob; oh, by the way did I mention the kids were black!

Last week at the district tournament held at the Zephyrhills Club he was telling me about a woman and her two kids living in a tent out by the old flea market, do you remember how cold it was. Well he went on to tell me that for the last two days he had bought hamburgers and French fries and taken them to the family.

Late last week he was telling me that he and some of the other shufflers that don’t have family here are going to feed 200 homeless people at Zephyr Park on Christmas day. Today he was telling me about all the donated food he had in his Van for the event.

Ya know what I’m going to do tomorrow; I’m going to go find a way to help. Yes I have commitments, but I’ll find a way!

Some people practice Christmas all the time, some really are heroes; thanks Bob.
