The Fundraiser Mingles/Singles held today at ZSC was a huge success.
87 enthusiastic shufflers braved the 35 degree temps and came out in support of our building fund.
Everyone participated in the 6 game format with 23 byes each game. Many thanks to Earl Ball for directing the games.
After the 3rd game, pizza and drinks were served while Henry and John conducted the drawings for over 45 donated prizes.
A poll was conducted and everyone agreed they would like to see this fundraiser continued next season.
The Board of Directors thanks everyone who participated, those who solicited donations and contributed to the event's success.
The net proceeds exceeded $1,100
The annual Christmas party was Saturday evening at the Perkins Courts.
An overflow crowd attended and had a wonderful time socializing, singing carols and feasting on a enormous variety of finger foods and a delicious Christmas cake.
President Henry Strong honored all members that achieved State Amateur or Pro status this season and a special toast to Glenda Brake, our newest FSA HOF inductee. Congratulations to all!
The highlight of the evening was when Henry and Bob Perkins son Jeffery, presented the Perkins award to the very deserving candy man, RL Lay.
Buddy & Joanne Allen organized the event with assistance from Jim & Ginny Chandler, Katy Walker and others. Jim & Ellie Crowell with David & Glenna Earle provided Christmas music.
Great job done by all.
After Frolics today some of our members power washed the courts. Even though the courts are swept everyday before play, the mixture of dirt and wax build up contributed to some very dirty courts.
Chuck Moulton ran the power washer and was assisted by Merv Lambe, Bill Badgley, Jim Chandler, Frank Pogel, Ross Lacombe, RL Lay and John Houghtaling. Jim left before photos were taken.
Bill & Merv trying to untangle the hoses....tough job and took awhile!
Today a small group of about 20-25 people arrived to take a more advanced shuffleboard class at ZSC. They were enthusiastic and full of excellent questions.
There are many very GOOD Amateur shufflers in our midst this season.
We discussed several topics. From shooting positions to the whys and hows of practice shots before a game in a tournament, we talked about why and how to cover good disks, when to go on the board and when not. Game plan ideas were suggested based on the score, from the position of the person with the hammer and then without!
Hope everyone took away something useful to help improve their game as they prepare to enter more shuffle tournaments. Keep up the good work Amateurs! Try your luck at Forest Lake Estates tomorrow. You may surprise yourselves!
Perhaps some people may even feel like joining ZSC. There are many good teachers among the Club members. Anyone coming to play will definitely learn how to become a better player, especially if they ask for help.
Many thanks to all the club members who assisted us today.
Thanks to David Earle for introducing us. Many thanks Glenna & Linda from the BOD
