Emmett Allen any Singles 2021

First tournament since the "re-opening" ---- July 26-29 at Seven Hills

     First of all, Seven Hills Shuffleboard Club would like to thank the wealth of experts who donated their skill and time in making our tournament a success.   It requires many hours of phone calls to get referees and scorekeepers, organize charts and monitor the scoreboards. Last but not least, thank you to all our referees, scorekeepers and Dawn Gogan for setting up coffee and donuts each morning with a cheerful Hawaiian theme, and Katie from Blessed Creations for catering our lunches. Thank you all for your dedication and commitment. 

     Every year seems to be better than the last but this year was special in many ways. We were all able to gathered together after a long period of isolation.  How great it was to gather and hear the background noise of friends reuniting, having a good time and debating shuffleboard strategy.  I wish I had the camera ready to capture the heartfelt hug between Lou and Clark at the end of their final championship game. It encapsulated all I’m trying to say.  

     Our Master of Ceremonies, Mary Davis, will be leaving us soon, moving to Northern California to be near her daughter and son-in-law.  I can’t remember a Seven Hills tournament where Mary has not been the guiding “elder” in the room who knew all the ins and outs of doing all things shuffleboard at Seven Hills. She and her late husband Chuck Davis filled in all the deficits with ease and expertise.  As members pass, move away or quite due to health issues, Mary has always been here. This year, after all was said and done and the room was empty except for the two of us it hit me that this is probably our last time to share this experience.  No announcements or pictures to commemorate this turning point.  So, I’m writing this piece instead because some things cannot be left unsaid.  Thank you, Mary, for all you’ve done for our club but most of all your leadership and friendship. You will be sorely missed.
