Good numbers for this event! There were 36 men and 36 ladies. This took place from April 20 to April 22. District rules applied. The two ATM’s who supervised the games and created and maintained the charts were Lynda Goggin and Sharyn DiChiro. Good job! George Hayner was head ref, as Helen Noeltner attended the scorekeeping chores. A New sponsor stepped forward for this meet, and that was Smart and Final Groceries at Florida and Kirby in Hemet. We do thank them!
It’s always a pleasure to share good news with you: Two ladies came up with their first winning spot in a
tournament. They were Bobi Davis, from Heather Estates and Lorraine Donahue from El Grande, enjoying her first season in shuffleboard! Congratulations, ladies! Great lunches were served each day.
