Distrtict 5 Singles Tournament

4C95BE10-690E-487C-BB72-18E9512DD8DF
It only took 2 or 3 phone calls – 1) When District 5 President, Gene Eager, received a call from Tramview President, Shirley Gengler, stating she had bad news – there was a problem with some of the boards at Tramview and the club wasn’t going to be able to host the Singles Tournament which was scheduled to be played there in less than a month.  2) Gene immediately called Ramon Park President Jim Montague and explained the situation. Jim’s initial reaction- “I’ll meet with our club members tomorrow and see what we can do.” He and Gene chatted awhile and Jim ended the conversation by saying “I think we can do it…. I’ll say yes.”  All the club presidents were advised and the District 5 Singles Tournament was played on the 8 outdoor courts at Ramon Park in Palm Springs – well, 3 of the 4 days were played there. With a forecast of 100% chance of rain on the second day of the tournament, another phone call was made to see if the second day could be moved to Royal Palms in Cathedral City since they have a cover over their courts. “Yes”, was the answer, plus the use of their kitchen and clubhouse for lunches.

                With the cooperation of these 3 clubs, 56 men and 36 women competed in the annual District 5 Singles Tournament. The last two days were played at Ramon under blue skies – quite a change from the second day when a quarter of an inch of rain fell in Palm Springs. As soon as the men from Ramon got done playing at Royal Palms, they hurried back to Ramon and started working of their boards to get them ready for the next day’s play. Between 25 to 30 gallons of water were vacuumed off of the boards and the alleys between the boards. At 9:00 Wednesday morning, the boards were ready and no one would have guessed there had been a rainstorm the day before.

                Winners: Women’s Champion: Janice Fitzgerald, Royal Palms; 00C4B88F-885E-4FCD-A415-093F5D3A17472nd, Diane Johns, Royal Palms; 3rd, Cynthia Amer, Desert Crest; 4th, Lois Krell, Royal Palms.

                Women’s Consolation Champion: Val McDougall, Desert Crest;B7BB895E-0339-4D8D-B26D-D7350713208B 2nd, Ronnie McMillin, Desert Crest; 3rd, Louise Bryant, Indian Wells RV Resort; 4th, Debbie Marohn, Royal Palms.

                Men’s Champion: Coley Aldrich, Tri Palms;22BAFCDF-8401-4CB3-9F4E-140744775B93 2nd, Chuck Gerock, Palm Desert Greens; 3rd, Roland Marohn, Royal Palms; 4th, Peter Koel, Royal Palms.

                Men’s Consolation Champion: Gary Adams, Palm Desert Greens; 3ED15C6D-19ED-4860-A8BB-E8209631B8A62nd, Cliff Pfefferle, Tramview; 3rd, Ray Hall, Palm Desert Greens; 4th, Ron Brown, Tri Palms.

                The sixteen people who placed in the Singles Tournament are all now qualified to play in the prestigious District 5 Tournament of Champions in March. Out of these 16, 10 of the winners were already qualified so there will be 6 new qualifiers for the TOC. We’re proud of our 2018-2019 crop of rookies as 3 of them have now qualified for the Tournament of Champions.

As you can see from the above, the 4th annual Team Shuffle was once again well attended. 97 players on 10 teams came to play at what is now known as “The Lakes at Hemet West.”

The boards played at a manageable speed but with some sticking. The losers grumbled but the winners were pleased.

The boards were buffed this week ad new dressing will be put out. They will be fast for the league opening.

Finishing first was the fine SDSE team, captained by Helen Noeltner. Ruth and Roland Schneider, Bruce Keifert, Ray Ackenhausen, Belinda Gray, MartyCox, and Lyna Goggin.1st.jpg

Coming in second was Captain Tootie Chittenden’s TLHW-1. Sharon Hilan, Marolyn Davidson, Sue Whitson, Nelda and Robert Lichtwald, Ken Norris, Harry Wright, Sandy Folk and Norma Farmer.2nd.jpg

Third Place went to Ingrid Thomas’ TLHW-2 team. Pat and Loren Nelsen, Lucy and Jerry Hand, Shirley and Gil Duke, Paul Epps, Rocco and Steve Piccinonno, Joanna and Larry Graves and Charles Smith.3rd.jpg

El Grande finished tied for third, but lost to TLHW-2 in the heads up game and so, Captains Jeannie Gregory and Carol Blasingame were awarded fourth place. Harry Gregory, John Hays, Harlan Mathews, Lorraine Donahue, Janice Flaherty, Mike Garrett, Anita Alexander and Rocky Raver.4th.jpg

Many Thanks to the Bank of Hemet for their continuing support.

LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT YEAR AND THE 5TH ANNUAL TEAM SHUFFLE

Thank you to ATMs Helen Noeltner and Jeannie Gregory for doing the charts, keeping the players on track, on time and fully informed – not an easy task.

Thank you to the board crew: Ken Norris and Robert Lichtwald (with help from Jay Davidson, Robert Brooks and Gene Eager and Marolyn Davidson who set up the coffee and doughnuts).

Thanks to Tootie Chittenden, President of The Lakes of Hemet Shuffleboard Club and the Recreation Board People for providing a variety of delicious lunch options including freshly baked pies, chicken salad sandwiches, chili dogs, hot dogs, hamburgers and cheese burgers in the newly remodeled kitchen. The chicken salad was homemade!

George Hayes’ daughter, Robyn, stopped by to meet some of the players. There was a moment of silence for George after the flag salute. George was dedicated to game of shuffleboard and instrumental in keeping it alive and thriving both in District Seven and CSA. He is sorely missed.

The resort has undergone a major remodel and there are still more improvements to come. The clubhouse looks great with new flooring, paint and furniture. Before entering the clubhouse there is a new arbor with a fountain, grape vines and seating. At the entrance to the resort is an impressive new 50’ stone kiosk with the new name inscribed on the sign. Congratulations to the residents of The Lakes at Hemet on their beautifully remodeled home.

SUN CITY hosts the CSA SINGLES

May 6-8, 2019

District 7’s Sun City Shuffleboard Club and their President, Liz Backus, once again hosted the California Shuffleboard Association’s Any Singles.

60 some players started at 8:00 on a cloudy, rainy Monday morning in their quest for the CSA Championship pin.IMG_2339

Unfortunately, these players lost their first game. But fortunately, they went on to place in the Consolation Bracket.

On the right is Sharon Massey, a first time winner. Congrats Sharon! Second place went to Jerry White, a past champion. Third place, Bob Hackett. Fourth place to Mona Smith, a Sun City member.

And in the Championship bracket, fourth place on the left is Loren Nelsen. Third went Robert Lichtwald. Second to past champ Robert Brooks. And, after having won the National Doubles with his partner Bill Rindone, is the new CSA Singles Champion Mike Garrett. Keep it up Mike!

Congratulations to those winners and a special thanks to ATM’s Helen Noeltner and Jeannie Gregory. Along with Head Referee, George Hayner and Head scorekeeper, Carol Anderson.

All participants took advantage of the many prizes given each day at the drawings. Great lunches were available as well.

Looking forward to next year.

The John McDonough Doubles

April 15-19. The fast Sierra Dawn South shuffleboard courts hosted their annual John McDonough tournament, an any doubles event for the second year.

Hosted by Howard Drake, with ATM’s Lynda Goggin and Helen Noeltner, the board crew had things ready for play at 8:30 Monday for the 40 teams of hopefuls. George Hayner handled the Head Referee duties and Carol Anderson and Carol Blasingame oversaw the scorekeepers and passed out the Karla Winget candy. The lunch ladies served pulled pork, chicken, hot dogs, sloppy joe sandwiches along with salads, chips, drinks and deserts. For some the lunches were the best part of the day.

For the other 8 teams that made it to the money rounds on Thursday, the games were hard fought. It seemed the boards yielded more 10’s than usual but kitchens were also easy to come by.

The winners posed for pictures under the banner of the tournament sponsor. Many thanks to The Bank of Hemet for their continuing support of District 7 shuffleboard.
