Seventy-two teams competed in the annual 4-day doubles tournament held at Royal Palms, Cathedral City. With the wind coming off the nearby mountains, snow could be seen through the Palm Trees. The weather didn’t seem to affect the fierce competition. Many games had to be broken by the CSA tie breaker rule, and many were decided by just 1 point.
Due to seven clubs being represented in the Friday finals, there was standing room only for the many spectators who acknowledged the good play by “ohs and ahs” and applause. It’s so good to see the camaraderie of the District 5 players acknowledging good shuffleboard, even if it isn’t someone from your home shuffleboard club.
This is the last tournament of the season to qualify for the Tournament of Champions so there were sighs of relief when the qualifying for finals games were completed Thursday afternoon.
The 2019 Doubles winners are:
Champions: Russ Smart & Dick Seburn, The Canyon, Cathedral City
- Doug Loos & Blaine Clark, Safari Park, Palm Springs
- Randy Stephenson & Gary McGrath, Ramon Park, Palm Springs
- Dan Chiernyk & Joe Dion, Palm Desert Greens, Palm Desert
- Consolation Division:
Champions: Margaret Hendriks & Gail Dodd, Royal Palms, Cathedral City
2. Tracy Ferguson & Hal Coleman, Ramon Park, Palm Springs3.
- Jean & Bob Junk, Tramview, Cathedral City
4. Linda & Ken May, Tri Palms, Thousand Palms

Hello Shuffleboard Nation!
Pluckypea and The Moonshooter
are coming at you live
from the booming metropolis of Tokyo.
It’s our first time in this incredible city
and I have to say,
it reminds us a ton
of our homes in NYC and Chicago.
The urban experience is in so many ways universal.
People who live in these cities
are choosing to be surrounded
by an absolute teeming mass of humanity.
Millions of souls willingly compelled to share
the same buildings, sidewalks and trains
and in doing so inherently embracing community.
Perhaps our most special day was spent
playing shuffleboard in a little city outside Yokohama.
We were ushered to the Forrest Tsuziki Club
by our friends Kazunari and Mioko
who we’d met playing in the ISA tournaments
in Brazil, Canada and Florida.
This 40 year old shuffleboard club
sports 12 glorious outdoor courts
and about 100 mostly senior members.
