Rick Thomas and his wife Kathy, did a tremendous job in putting the tournament together in a short period of time. If it weren't for him, this tournament would not have happened and he should be credited with keeping shuffleboard alive in Northern California!

May 26-29, 2006 Memorial Day & George Camera CSHOF Induction
We would like to thank the 31 players who showed up on very short notice to show their respect for our California Shuffleboard Hall of Fame inductee George Camara. We would also like to thank John Azevedo (owner of the 133 Club) in Manteca for his support and great food. Also, kudos to my partners in crime: Dan Mourgos and Dave Keithahn for their help. Many thanks to Kathy Thomas, who worked countless hours putting together a great hall of fame booklet.

OK, lets get to it. The Amateur A/B draw was started Thursday night with 9 teams participating. It is fun watching this event because they know how to have fun.

1st place – Ron Graham and Max Cartier– both from Santa Rosa
2nd place – Paul Panholzer – Novato and our own Barbara Crum from Turlock
