The Rookie Tournament: Ostensibly a “Global” Event

 by Dean Grattidge    District 7  Reporter
A total of 36 sign-ups stepped up to duke it out Saturday and Sunday, February 16-17, 2018.
Hosted by SDSE (and we thank them for their support), this event highlights the enthusiasm of new players. It was ATM Lynda Goggin, assisted by Helen Noeltner who kept the tournament running flawlessly, as well as charting and scheduling all games.
George Hayner provided his skills as head referee. Carol Anderson monitored the scorekeeping. Games were single elimination, under CSA rules and each game was 12 frames.
All four winners were awarded a commemorative pin for their successful venture.
It is a great privilege to acknowledge all winners who orchestrated their strategy and knowledge of the 100-year old game of shuffleboard who prevailed in the winning positions.
  Championship round only  –
First place, Mitch Herbert, originally from Hollywood, Maryland (SDSE club),
second place, Larry Pierce, who hails from Fayetteville, Arkansas (The Foothills of Hemet),
third place, Helga Moffett, overseas entry from Hof, Germany (playing out of El Grande Estates).
,and fourth place, Debra McCoffrey, from Harbor City, Cal., (playing out of CCC)
I would be remiss if I didn’t commend Harlan Mathews for his contribution over the past several years, for his
outstanding photography!
What a pleasure to salute all these winners and everyone who came together to make this an exciting event!
