An Important Message from the President of Tavares Shuffleboard Club.

This  is directed to the Florida State Shuffleboard Board, Northern District Shuffleboard Board, Tavares Shuffleboard Board and the Committee, inspecting courts to approve courts to be worthy of  play for Master’s tournaments.

On April 19th, 2017 a committee of three  – Glenn Monroe, Earl Ball and Sharon Upson, visited Tavares courts to inspect the courts to see if they were acceptable for Master’s play. The final condition, was that the courts must be beaded and play will be with a different set of disc, other than what we use . This decision was analyzed very carefully, by the board of the Tavares Shuffleboard club and brought to the membership for discussion. Because the committee decided that our courts are not suitable as they are, please accept our release from hosting this event.

Our club enjoys the courts we have, with thanks to the city of Tavares, with whom we have a very close relationship.  They do not ask much of us, but, to maintain our courts in a manner, for all to enjoy.

Our offer to host this event was accepted in 2014, and our intention was to expose our city , our district, our club and our members, to those, that are very accomplished and  seasoned players, with skills to be ready to play on any court that is presented to them. We are sure you are aware, that we produce great players, that we are very proud of, showing accomplishments, beyond the goals that have never been achieved in the past.  Namely our member Allen Dronsfield. A career, that began at Tavares Shuffleboard Club.

We are sure that the State and the Northern District, will find a venue, that will meet the needs of the committee to host this event.

Tavares Shuffleboard Club  –  President –  Lorraine Layton, and board members:  Marlyce Fistman, Mary Jane Neumann, Duane Lammers, Cheryl Cole, Rick Enright, Patty Foster.

Peter and Erika Berg Share Their Most Interesting Story!!! (Please send along yours!!)

Peter and Erika’s Island Home.  Quality Home; Quality Pic!!

Hi Stan:  As you know we live on a peninsular during the summer months at Loon Bay. (part of Georgian Bay) It is near Parry Sound On. We have no road to drive to our cottage. Boat access only.

As we took off this year from our Marina the water was beautiful blue, cold but ice free.Click Me! Travelling full speed was lots of fun. Our granddaughter took off 5 minutes earlier with the smaller and faster boat. She said: “See you at the cottage shortly”. I agreed and off she went.

After about 1/2 mile she had stopped suddenly and waved frantically for me to stop. My first thought was, engine problems. But as I came closer I saw what she meant, there was a large patch of ice right in front of her. No problem, I had to use my old work horse the 24′ Chris Craft as an icebreaker. We arrived at the cottage a few minutes later than planed but had no more difficulties.

Next year we will stay 2 weeks longer in Florida to be sure the ice is gone by then!!.

Peter and Erika .  To better appreciate the pix, click on your choice.
