Moe and Teresa Vermeulen placed 3rd in Consolation.
There was an Amateur Singles Tournament in Lakeland on Dec. 13th. Teresa Vermeulen placed 2nd in Consolation.
December 20th/21st there is an All Amateur Draw Doubles Tournament in St. Cloud. It is 75 points or maximum 16 frames. Jan. 4th/5th is in Lakeland. Same format as St. Cloud.
This year at least 26 amateurs in Central District, moved up to Pro, that I know of, maybe more. Florida SLR Shuffleboard Association is trying to encourage more amateurs to come to these tournaments.
It is great fun and you meet people of all skill levels and from all over US and Canada.
Saddlebag January-March leagues will be starting Wednesday Jan. 2nd at 9:45am. There is a Tuesday/Thursday and a Wednesday/Friday league. You don't have to feel obligated to be there every day. You show up when you can. There is also a “For Fun Only", Monday/Thursday afternoon league at 12:55pm. Scores are not recorded.
I would like to personally welcome all the Newcomers to SLR and invite you to come and shuffle. It is great fun and a good way to meet your neighbours.
Hope to see you at the Courts and at the Breakfast on January 5th.
