Shuffleboard Tournament

Shuffleboard Tournament...Monday morning...
We were told to be at the court at 8:00 am... 
Tournament starts at 9:00 am

we arrived at 8:15 am
Tournament days start with coffee and donuts...

And eager players  ready for the week!

Game #1
Remember this is our first year at Shuffleboard...
Some of the players...have been here for 20 years..
Then are very experienced..
Here Hubby got 8 points...
I know for me...it feels so good when this happens...
until your opponent knocks it out.
In a tournament...you play for yourself, you don't have partners.
After the first game...we both lost... but had played good games
Day two ....
Hubby had a slow start to his game...started getting points a bit to late.
Lost his game...so that put him out of the tournament.

My opponent...ended up in the hospital..
So that meant I won the game....
I still played....with what they call a pusher.
So that meant I was in the semi finals...and had another game on day 3.
Day 3
It was a fun game... I played my best game ever...
but lost. 
The tournament increased our appreciation for Shuffleboard...

  1. I don't think I've heard of shuffleboard before, but any game that starts with coffee and donuts can't be bad lol. Only joking!!! It looks and sounds as if you really enjoyed your week at this tournament.

  4. I have never played shuffleboard; however, the floor of my church's fellowship room has the courts permanently inlaid. I need to ask if anyone ever plays the game.

    You must be a tough competitor if your opponent ended up in the hospital. ;oD
