Members...If you know of someone who is under the weather, please send me the details and I would be happy to publish them.
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 key Officers on the Central District Board.
John Houghtaling was re-elected Central District President for 2020-2021.
John was also elected to the ZSC Board of Directors recently.
Mike Seyfer is the Treasurer and we all know how detail oriented Mike is, so our money is well taken care of.
Good luck to all and we thank these ZSC members for the extra time they give on behalf of us all.
ZSC CENTRAL DISTRICT OFFICERS
Tim Baker was elected to 4th V.P.
Tim will be the Amateur's voice on the Board replacing Gerrit Dykman.
Jim Chandler was re-elected to serve his second term as 1st V.P.
Jim and his wife Ginny also co- chair the HOF Fun Day.
ZSC MEMBERS REFINISHING COURTS
Henry Strong, John Houghtaling, Frank Pogel, Jim Carder, George Darwin, Tim Baker & Ed Sterling are members that have been working on 10 courts in a park in Lakeland.
Repaing, patching, painting and beading & sealing are part of this job. Kurt's court lining service, will complete the lines and all work will be finished this week.
This hard working crew brings in a lot of money each year for our own building fund.
All members owe this crew a great deal of appreciation.
Nice job completed at Light & Life Park in Lakeland by our talented court refinishing crew.

WINS PERKINS AWARD
AND RE-ELECTED TO ZSC BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Patt Bertram was re-elected to the ZSC Board Of Directors at the Feb.6th general meeting and is the 2020 recipient of the prestigious Perkins Award.
The Perkins award is an annual acknowledgement to a member for his or her unselfish and outstanding contributions to Zephyrhills Shuffleboard Club for the past year.
Patt was originally elected to the ZSC Board as an female coordinator for the ladies and amateur contact in 2016
She volunteered to help John Houghtaling with our sponsorship program. John asked her to chair after he was elected to the Central District Board in 2019. Since that time Patt has introduced many new sponsors to our club and is a real bulldog when it comes to collecting the annual sponsorship fees. She also has found excellent sign makers for our sponsors ads. A very time consuming job indeed. Patt continued to work on sponsorships after her BOD term expired.
Patt is originally from Yale, Michigan and retired as a Bookkeeper. She became interested in shuffleboard around 2001 while living in Palm Tree Acres. Patt loved to play golf but was hindered by back problems and found she could play shuffleboard pain free.
Patt played in, and since 2016, has served as President of the 8 Park League Shuffleboard League, she also serves on the Palm Tree Acres Board Of Directors.
Patt said she loves the friends she has made at ZSC and through shuffleboard and really enjoys being the club sponsor chairperson.
Congratulations Patt, and thank you for your continuing service to ZSC.
Patt is a genuine asset to our club.
