AB Draw and Mixed Doubles - February 11-12, 2006
Friday February 17, 2006 5:51 PM Reported by Coco Brown

Players came from far and wide to show their support for the Club Car Sweetheart tournament in memory of Sally Wendling (wife of Gene Wendling – President of the Michigan Shuffleboard Hall of Fame).

Tournament fund raising to be presented to Gene in honor of Sally Wendling was announced to be donated to the Michigan Shuffleboard Hall of Fame in Sally’s name by Gene.

Two events were scheduled in this tournament; an AB draw, and the annual Sweetheart Mixed Doubles event.

In the AB Draw on Saturday, teams competed in a four placement event. In first place, girl power of Linda Mitchell and Melinda Flynn surfaced in first place (sponsored by Chuck Ricklefs) . Finishing in second place were Sonny Morgan and Harold Garian (sponsored by Jackie Meagher). Third place went to John Addington and Steve Jurik (sponsored by Linda Mitchell) and finishing in fourth place were Chris Lemieux and Slick Parrish (sponsored by Vic Matteson). During the presentation of prize monies, Chuck Ricklefs generously announced that he was donating his Calcutta portion to the Michigan Shuffleboard Hall of Fame in honor of Sally Wendling.

In Sunday’s Sweetheart Mixed Doubles event, first place went to the double dipping team of hosts Bill and Brenda Kane (sponsored by Gene Wendling). Second place victors were Vic Matteson and Kathy Francisco (sponsored by themselves), and third place went to Steve Jurik and Melinda Flynn (sponsored by Gene Wendling).

A very special thanks to all of those who participated in the memorial tournament!
