August 14-16, 2017 – John McDonough Tournament for men and ladies hosted by SDSE.
It’s hard not to be impressed by the 40-foot long art deco murals embracing the courts on either side. Someone or several artists put in a huge amount of time and talent to create these pieces!
Good shuffleboard numbers, 64 entries made scheduling and pairing less difficult.
Several volunteers solicited businesses for gift certificates: Helen Noeltner, Betty Elias and Al Elias. We’re grateful to these contributors: Stater Brothers, Arturo’s Pizza, Marcos Pizza and Dickey’s Barbeque. Gifts were presented to the head referee and ATM’s.
Again, The Bank of Hemet bolstered the funding for this event – Many thanks to them.
Nine clubs were represented at this tournament.
Head ref was George Hayner as Dennis Iszler took charge of supervising the scoring.
