This Thursday, September 13 at 3pm over at 7-Hills, there will be a strategy class that is open to all of us. It is given by Lou Wilson. Newer players as well as some of us old timers can definitely benefit from this. Hope to see some of you there.

Despite what I thought was a late afternoon start, around 75 Hemet shufflers showed up to hear Lou Wilson share his knowledge of the game of Shuffleboard. Newer players and what I call “seasoned” players all can benefit from a few hints on strategy. We all want to improve our play of course, and Lou kindly showed us ways to do just that.

Lou startted playing in 1992. His record is a long one with wins in most of the yearly tournaments played here in Hemet. He has played in Nationals, Internationals and many times he traveled to Arizona to play in th big Western Team Tournament. His proudest moments were the times he was able to best Rocky Briggs and Roland Schneider, legendary Hemet shufflers. And he shared tidbits from Fred Day and Gigi Briggs. Two of Hemet’s best teachers of the game.

The class lasted about an hour…

California Shuffleboard Association

by Dean Grattidge  District 7 Reporter
Hemet West hosted the annual CSA any doubles tournament from July 23-27, 2018.  A total of 96 players took part in this event. Games were 12-frame, doubled, with players changing sides at half time, taking their discs with them.
Personnel volunteering their efforts were:
ATM’s Lynda Goggin and Carole Anderson, scorekeeper, Nelda Lichtwald, head ref, George Hayner and a three man crew maintaining the boards in a professional manner: Paul Epps, Ken Norris and Charles Smith.
Funding was provided by The Bank of Hemet and Hemet West Management. Many thanks to them for that.
Three businesses contributed 21 wonderful gift certificates and cash: Chili’s Restaurant, Red Robin Gourmet Burgers and Applebee’s Restaurant.

California Shuffleboard Association

 by Dean Grattidge    District 7  Reporter
A total of 36 sign-ups stepped up to duke it out Saturday and Sunday, February 16-17, 2018.
Hosted by SDSE (and we thank them for their support), this event highlights the enthusiasm of new players. It was ATM Lynda Goggin, assisted by Helen Noeltner who kept the tournament running flawlessly, as well as charting and scheduling all games.
George Hayner provided his skills as head referee. Carol Anderson monitored the scorekeeping. Games were single elimination, under CSA rules and each game was 12 frames.
