Another successful turnout occurred in what is believed to be the second longest running tournament in Michigan at Skip’s during this year’s Skip’s Fall Bash. A total of 56 shuffleboard patrons participated in this three day tournament, including the following events: AB Draw Partner on Friday, ABC Draw Partner on Saturday, and Open Singles on Sunday. More than $10,500 was up for grabs. Players came from far and wide, including Indiana, Ohio, Florida’s Dick Smedbert, and Missouri’s Frank Edelen. Thanks for your continued support in your travels!

On Friday, 21 teams participated in the AB Draw Partner event. Taking first place this year were Jim Long & Jessica Williams (sponsored by Travis Taylor). Second place winners were Slick Parrish & Jim Norton (also sponsored by Travis Taylor), and third place recipients were Bob Auten & Tom Williams (sponsored by Dave Nelson).
