First of all, we would like to thank the players who came to the tournament held in our brand new Elks complex in Modesto, Calif. Some players came from out of state – Cindy Clark and Lewis Bailey from Arizona and Jim and DeVonna Golden from Las Vegas, Nevada. We were also glad to have Marion Bailey and Warren Goldsmith from Visalia, CA.

Many thanks and kudos to the committee for the countless hours to make this tournament a success, namely Dave Keithahn and Dan Mourgos for moving and setting up the boards (some in the rain). Paul Panholzer refurbished a cradle for the tournament. Nice job, Paul. Many thanks to Kathy Thomas who collected and distributed the money. Thanks to Jane Mourgos and Vicki Hunt for the beautiful picture display for recently departed Queen of Shuffleboard, Bev Chaffin.

Dan Mourgos passed out California Shuffleboard Hall of Fame pins to past honorees, (L-R) Bob Hunt , Hal Perry, Nick Chaffin, George Camara, and Marion Bailey. It was wonderful having five CSHF members participating in the tournament.
