Oscars Sports Bar Presidents Day Tournament Results

If you wanted excitement and good times, Oscar’s Sports Bar in Bellflower Ca. was the place to be for President’s Day. We had a great turnout of 34 players, and some very good matches.

In the ABC blind draw, there were 10 teams vying for about $3400.00 in total payout. In the finals, the team of Charlie Gates of Bullhead City Arizona, Gary Jones of Long Beach and Bernice Boik, AKA: B.B., of Bellflower came in first going through the winners bracket by defeating the second place team of Jim Martin from Temecula, Terry Leahy of Phoenix Arizona, and Mike Huber of Bellflower.

To get to the finals, Jim Martin’s team defeated the very strong third place team consisting of Jerry Harp from Garden Grove, H.L. Lee of Bishop and Jana Brannan of Tustin. Jana is new to the sport and did a great job in her first tournament.

In the Bring Partners doubles, we had 8 teams with $2700.00 up for grabs. Making sure they got their money out of the event, the team of Dave Brennen from Rossmoor and Tony Appell of Phoenix Arizona, defeated returning champions Kenny Hawkes of Escondido and Jeff Posthumus of Huntington Beach by double dipping them. A notable
quote from Jeff, “the beer got in the way of my lag.”

Dave and Tony made it to the finals by defeating the third place team of Karl Spickelmier from Bellflower and Grant Manning from Murrieta.

As you can see, we had a great showing from all over the Southwest. What a wonderful group of people to be involved with and enjoy time with.

We want to thank all who participated in our events and continue to support shuffleboard. This is such a great sport and can continue to grow with all of our help.

A special thanks to Rich “Bubba” Warren for again running a very good tournament. Also thank you to Susie Jones for her help. As always, thank you Oscar Ugarte for your support of the game and tournaments.
