Breaking News: Terrible Breaking News!! Our Hearts are Saddened.

Shufflers the world over; I regret to inform you of the passing of Vivian Ball, loving partner of Earl.  Vivian passed away last night in her sleep from a heart attack.  (2018 10 14)

Vivian was the combination of class and beauty, who always supported Earl at major shuffleboard occasions.  She will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with Earl at this time.

Al Dronsfield Reports on the 2nd 2018 District Tournament!!

Al Dronsfield Speaks:  We had our concerns whether Michael was going to wash us out or not; we dodged the bullet and the Northern District put on it’s second event of the young season.

We certainly wish those in the panhandle that were hit so hard the best and a speedy recovery. As Stan Bober mentioned it was hot, he hit it on the head, it was hot in the north as well.
As usual I have not done a good job securing pictures of the winners and those that were finalist didn’t pass any on to me. That is probably a hint that I wasn’t there today in the finals. No; my partner and I weren’t able to repeat this one and left on Thursday. I got to sneak off and play a round of golf with 11 others.
The tournament was a No Two Pro Tournament, we had a fair turnout, Donna King was the Director. Edie and Judith provided the belly buster hot dogs, they were great also.
The city has installed some new composite benches in some locations at Tavares, very comfortable with backrest and all. Sometimes a bit hard to get out of, but you do slide right into them.
The pictures that I do have are of the winners, Frank Cherill off to a good start, two in a row, is on the left and Dave Dean on his right finished 2nd. in Consolation.
Frank’s partner was top Amateur Paul Hodges, he is pictured holding his Frank Willson** Amateur TOC plaque.
The Northern District will be heading over to Coronado/Mainland Club at New Smyrna Beach next week. The tournament is an Any Dbls. event, so if you haven’t got your partner yet get hooked up and get on over there, the courts at Coronado were resurfaced this summer and are running pretty good. They still have their same old drift, sidewalk courts with the inside out drift. No lunches at this one so pack one up.

Stan Speaks: I believe ALL READERS agree that Al does a great job reporting on ND Events!! Believe me, it takes TIME AND EFFORT!!  Thank You Al.

Forida’s WCD SHUFFLEBOARD SEASON IS OFF AND RUNNING 2018-19 TO A GREAT START

 

The West Coast District, as Stan says in his heading, is Off and Running!!!!  AND, as you will see when you look at the 2nd pic, Stan, while partnering with WCD President Jan Cote, has won the distinction of placing 2nd in the Consolation Event!!!  Stan informed me in his e-mail, that it was HOT; very hot. He stopped short of saying it was hotter than  H?? on the basis that NEITHER has he been there, NOR does he plan on going there?????

Stan observed that Shufflers better get to St Petes early on Monday, Oct 15th as a BIG CROWD is expected!!!!  The other event beginning Monday is at Lee County; it too will no doubt have a good turnout!!  BOTH TOURNAMENTS ARE MIXED DOUBLES.   Be sure you check out Stan’s (humorous) web page!!  Click:  https://wcdshuffle.yolasite.com/tournament-results.php
