Twenty rookies were entered in the annual District 5 Rookie Tournament held at Ramon Park in Palm Springs on January 17 & 18, 2022. A last-minute cancellation fielded a group of 19 players competing to be named the Champion. This year the traveling plaque was donated by Shirley Eager in memory of her husband Gene Eager. Gene started shuffling in January 2008 and won the Rookie Tournament at Ramon Park that year. The Ramon Park Shuffleboard Club presented Shirley with the traveling plaque from 1996 – 2008 that had Gene’s name as the final name on the plaque. Gene passed away February 28, 2020, and because of his love for the game and always willing to help the newcomers learn and love the game the way he did, it was fitting that this plaque was in his memory.Continue reading 2022 District 5 Rookie Tournament
