I must apologize for this continued mix up in our schedule. It is necessary that all Club Correspondence representatives make sure that the ND President has your correct email address. This will be the last change in our 2023-2024 schedule. We did not have the correct email for Clermont and therefore the schedule was changed without their knowledge. The ND17 Jan 22, 2024, Any Amateur Draw Tournament will be played in Clermont. Thanks for your attention to this notice.
On behalf of the International Shuffleboard Association, it gives me great pleasure to announce that six people will be inducted into the ISA Hall of Fame in the “Special Award” category. They are most deserving of this prestigious award.
The induction will take place at the 40th World Championship in October at St Petersburg, Florida.
“CONGRATULATIONS” to … Peter Davis. UK Hallvard Flatland. Norway Doris Hanke. USA Norman Lindsay. Canada Christine Page. USA Paulo Pavão. Brazil
Just a reminder that Leesburg is having its first spring/summer monthly singles mingles this Wednesday. Play begins at 8:30 for five games and 12 frames format. Cost is $5.00 and a donation for the Leesburg food bank. We will have a 50/50 if you want to try your luck. Please let your members know that we welcome them. All entry money goes into prizes and depending on the turnout there will be prizes for pro and for amateur divisions. Hope to see you on Wednesday.
The Leesburg Shuffleboard Club hosted the 2023 Masters Tournament. Rod Lewis was the Director and Gail Howell and Carol Helfer did a great job organizing the tournament and setting up all the food and entertainment for the Masters Banquet which followed the tournament. Stan Williamson was the MC for the night’s entertainment. There were trophy presentations, pin presentations and entertainment by Rick Enright as Elvis, Jim Faust playing his banjo and Zak Wonson and Joe Inga as Abbot and Costello. They presented George Snyder with an Iron Man Award for successfully playing in all Northern District Tournaments this season. Stan had some really big red underwear? Tom Brown and Gloria Boring were presented with the Frank Wilson Special Award for Amateur Winners of the TOC.
Ray Parlberg was well on his way to Hall of Fame when his wife became ill. He is now 89 years old and has done so much to promote the ND Shuffleboard that he was given an honorary entry into the Hall of Fame and presented with the traditional Red Jacket. Congratulations to all the shufflers, have a really great and safe summer.
