Despite what I thought was a late afternoon start, around 75 Hemet shufflers showed up to hear Lou Wilson share his knowledge of the game of Shuffleboard. Newer players and what I call “seasoned” players all can benefit from a few hints on strategy. We all want to improve our play of course, and Lou kindly showed us ways to do just that.
Lou startted playing in 1992. His record is a long one with wins in most of the yearly tournaments played here in Hemet. He has played in Nationals, Internationals and many times he traveled to Arizona to play in th big Western Team Tournament. His proudest moments were the times he was able to best Rocky Briggs and Roland Schneider, legendary Hemet shufflers. And he shared tidbits from Fred Day and Gigi Briggs. Two of Hemet’s best teachers of the game.
The class lasted about an hour. There were many scenarios accompanied by, “always do this”, “you can try this” and “never do this”.
I’m sure each shuffler present learned something and all said a big,
THANK YOU, LOU WILSON
