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.
