A liitle note from our fellow ZSC members just might help cheer them up and on the road to recovery...Chuck
We all like to play Shuffleboard but some go over and above to be sure we have a voice in the Central District governing body. ZSC is proud to have four Officers on the Central District Board.
Jim Chandler is 1st Vice President and is responsible for the popular Hall of Fame Classic held at Winter Haven in March. Jim also serves as a ZSC Director.
John Houghtaling is 3rd Vice President and is responsible for the Reiny-Masters; he’ll need help from many of us as he sets up the Masters to be played at our Club in March.
Gerrit Dykman is 4th Vice President and is responsible to represent our amateur base and to build that base.
Mike Seyfer is the Treasurer and we all know how detail oriented Mike is, so our money is well taken care of.
When you see these guys, you might want to thank them for all the extra time they give for all of us. Remember, they too want to play.

An article I wrote about Art a few years ago
Art Vogel passes 9/9/2018
George Darwin probably knew Art longer than anyone in Zephyrhills. George recently said, “ I met Art and Irma over 30 years ago and both are very special to me”.
“ I played shuffleboard with and against Art when we both lived in Winter’s Park. We became very good friends and decided to play as partners in tournaments. We won many tournaments and of course lost many also. During our many shuffleboard trips, I learned a lot about Art. He never let any grass grow under his feet and was always busy running a dry cleaning business and other things. Art always said what he meant and meant what he said. When we played shuffleboard, Art would constantly look at his charts and it drove me up a wall. I remember more than once yelling down the courts to throw those damn charts away. I was a little hard on Art, but I knew he trusted me with advice etc.”
“ One of our greatest shuffleboard accomplishments was beating Jim Bailey ( after he won his HOF point in the semi) and Mel Erb in the finals of a State Tournament in Hawthorne. I think this is where we earned the title of “The twin towers of power”.
“ I will miss Art as we all will. RIP my old friend.”
