Tuesday, February 4 – Friday, February 7, the District 5 Any Doubles Shuffleboard Tournament was hosted by the Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club at their location in Cathedral City. Seventy-six doubles entries shuffled during this 4-day event. A special thank you to Cathy Conran-Smith for filling in for ATMs Marlene Oslie and Shirley Eager who both had emergencies and had to leave the desert prior to the tournament. Cathy was ably assisted by her husband Larry. The tournament went off without a hitch and all the participants were so grateful Cathy was able to fill in. District 5 First Vice President, Gary Adams, presented the awards.
