District 5 Tournament of Champions

The 41st annual District 5 Tournament of Champions is in the history books. 51 men and 29 women competed for the coveted title of Champion in each of the divisions. In order to be invited to this prestigious tournament, a shuffler must have placed either 1st through 4th in the District 5 Singles or Any Doubles Tournament. When doing so, a 5-year invitation is extended. The tournament is hosted by the Desert Crest Shuffleboard Club in Desert Hot Springs. Tournament Directors John & Linda Nielsen did an excellent job in organizing the tournament and with the help of ATM Shirley Eager, the tournament went off without any glitches. Shortly before the draw, it was determined that only 7 boards could be used so the schedule was reworked to accommodate the 80 shufflers playing on 7 boards in 3 days. Dawn Carriere, champion of the women’s division, and Ray Hall, champion of the men’s division, now have a lifetime invitation to the Tournament of Champions. This is the last of the District 5 tournaments for the season so it’s bittersweet as people are leaving after being eliminated from this single elimination tournament – goodbyes are said and in the back of our minds, there’s always the fear that the goodbye is a permanent goodbye.
