24, 2006 through November 26, 2006
Another successful turnout
occurred at Kane’s Club Car during this year’s Michigan
State Championship Tournament. Tournament Directors CoCo & Cindy
Brown and Rob & Debbie Kern signed up a total of 55 shuffleboard
patrons, participating in this planned three day tournament, including
the following events: AB Round Robins on Friday, Mixed Doubles on
Friday, Open Singles, Division II Singles, and Ladies Singles on
Saturday, and Open Doubles and Division II Doubles on Sunday which
merged into an AB Draw. With such fierce competition, there was
only ONE team that went undefeated in ALL of the non-round robin
events! See if you can figure out which player(s) went undefeated.
(I will not reveal the answer until the end of this article for
those who think they know players well).
On Friday, 17 teams participated
in the Mixed Doubles event. First place victory went John McDermott
and Jessica Williams (sponsored by John McDermott). Second place
winners were Frank Blade and Sandy Blade (sponsored by Richard Reist),
third place recipients were Bill Kane and Jackie Meagher (sponsored

Kane (sponsored by John McDermott).
