Shufflers enjoy the Hemet West venue to pull off a successful mixed tournament.

From Aug. 4-6, 76 players put their expertise on the line to complete this event. Rosters were made up of 40 ladies and 36 men.

Using a repertoire of solid defensive strategies, a combined 16 men and women went about posting close scores in the Final Tournament game.

Numerous volunteers stepped forward to assure a successful tournament: Sharyn DiChiro and Lynda Goggin drew up the charts and Jay and Marolyn Davidson lent their support as ATMs. Again, the often relied upon George Hayes and Karla Winget supervised refereeing and scorekeeping. A board crew of Paul Epps and Ken Norrin attended to dressing and maintaining of the courts. A fine lunch, by Wini Mellor’s crew was available, in the hall.

Considerably funding went into door prizes. Nelda Lichtwald, again came up with several coupons from local business’s…

Ladies and Gentlemen, Shufflers All; The Courts Went Down To-day!!
The “Roll Outs” look good, very good!! International Shufflers will remember the very good, and very similar, situation we had in Seattle for the 31st. One significant difference; in Midland we are located in the same arena; in fact, in one half of what we call in Canada, A Twin Pad Arena!! For the record, this is “the other pad”, the larger of the two. In 2007 we used the smaller of the two. If you look to the right, foreground, you will see the newly acquired Shuffleboard Trailer used to transport the OSA Shuffleboard Equipment. The OSA (Ontario Shuffleboard Association) is supplying the courts and associated equipment at no cost to the CNSA. A BIG THANK YOU TO THEM!!
The courts not only “went down to-day“; they were also nella sealed!! If you have helped in such a venture, you will know it is…

The shuffleboard portion of the California Senior Games, was held at the Highland Park Senior Center, in the Pasadena area, on Thursday and Friday, June 12th and 13th. Hosts John and Barbara Irogoyen had the courts ready for play at 8:30 for the 32 entrants. Men’s and Ladies singles were first up. The players played each other in their age group, which went in 5 year increments. 55-59, 60-64, etc, with the oldest players present, being in their 90’s.

After the morning round of games, lunch was served. The weather was typical California, so it was very nice to sit and visit while we ate. Many of the players had faced each other before in the Soboba Team event held in Hemet, or the Western Team Tournament I Mesa.

Friday brought the Doubles part of the competition. Again our hosts provided a nice lunch. The awards followed and we were on the road home by 1:30, in time to miss the bulk of the Friday commute.

Those who finished 1st thru 4th, qualified to participate in the National Senior Games to be held in Minneapolis, summer of 2015.

Everyone gave a big thanks to Barbara and John for the good games, good lunches and good time. All promised to meet again in Minnesota next year

The Bonspiel, Fast Becoming A Shuffleboard Classic by Dean Grattidge, District 7 Reporter
June 15, 2014Uncategorized Edit

The Bonspiel, Fast Becoming A Shuffleboard Classic by Dean Grattidge, District 7 Reporter This is the 22nd year this event has been a favorite form of competition. The iconic Hemet Muni venue was once again the site of activity. This was an in house Hemet Muni event. The number of entrees was restricted to 64 players and first choice went to Hemet Muni members. Players from surrounding clubs got the coveted remaining spots as long as they put their names on a stand-by list. Each person played 2 games per day for 3 days, 12 frames per game. A $10.00 fee was collected from each shuffler. George Hayes was ever-present as head referee. CSA rules did not apply to this program. Listening carefully you could hear a collective sigh when it was announced that the penalty for the kitchen disc did not apply! Scorekeepers had the monumental job of collecting and collating the results of each match. This was very vital in determining the winners of each bracket. Our thanks go out to Lois Depezynski and Sharyn DiChiro for a job well done. Managers, Marie Patterson and Carol Anderson did a first class job of keeping the tournament running smoothly. Each player was assigned to one of four divisions based on their success in their first two games: Win your first two games, you go to the Red Division, win first, lose second, Blue, lose first, win second, Green, and lose the first two, go to Purple. Shufflers could not pass up the hearty lunch available for $6.00 each day and many door prizes rounded out the final activity at the end of the third day.It was indeed unfortunate that Kerry Selway, Hemet Muni President could not be with us these three days. He was out with medical problems. Winners who had not previously received a monogrammed jacket became eligible for one of these fine maroon windbreakers. Image

The winners were each awarded a commemorative pin. And the winners were – Red Division: First, Robert Brooks, 2nd, Phil Lammens, 3rd, DotNelson and 4th, John Brock. Blue Division: First, Grace Ferrone, 2nd, Fran Hayner, 3rd, Joe Jackson and 4th Royal Austin. Green Division: First, Elaine Flores, 2nd, David Miller, 3rd, Len Sweet and 4th, Charles Morley. Purple Division: First, George Hayner, 2nd, Cliff Dyet, 3rd, Ann Cantu and fourth, Joel Snortland.
