Good Pairings at Sierra Dawn South Tournament
by Dean Grattidge District 7 Reporter
A Shuffleboard event Honoring a former Bank of Hemet management director, an icon in the Valley’s financial system, John McDonaugh kicked off with an excellent number of entries, 64! It was held from June 15th to 17th, 20i5.
Jan Stephens, club president, was on hand every day to supervise this event. ATM’s were George Hayes and Carol Anderson. They were a most effective team in generating and upgrading the charts that were in place from beginning to end of the games. Head referee was George Hayner and Karla Winget collated and updated the scorecards.
Jim Lane and Bob Rule attended to the maintenance of the boards.
CSA rules applied in these Any Single games. Each game was scheduled for 12 frames.
All winners received a pin and cash reward for their solid effort.
Funding was on hand, thanks to The Bank of Hemet and the entry fees paid by all players. A nice variety of gifts was distributed in a drawing at the culmination of the event.
Nearly every tournament has a moment of drama; this, coming in the competition in the last game on Tuesday, June 16th. Two veritable “road warriors” hooked up in a challenge that went the entire 12 frames and wound up in a scoreless tie. Not content with that, Julian Brown and Kerry Selway worked their way into ANOTHER tie, 7-7 after their allotted two frames each. The eventual winner prevailed by virtue of a scoring lag shot. Must have been your day, eh, Kerry? –
Congratulations to both of you!
