Another successful turnout occurred at Skip’s during this year’s Skip’s Fall Bash. A total of 72 shuffleboard patrons participated in this three day tournament (surpassing last year’s 68), including the following events: AB Draw Partner on Friday, ABC Draw Partner on Saturday, and Open Singles on Sunday. Just under $13,000 was up for grabs. Players came from far and wide, including Nevada’s Chris Passariello and Missouri’s Jerry Romay and Frank Edelen. Thanks for your continued support in your travels!

On Friday, 22 teams participated in the AB Draw Partner event. Taking first place year were Bill Kane and Slick Parrish (sponsored by Jim Earl Madary).
Second place winners were Bill Niswonger and CoCo Brown (sponsored by Bill Kane) Tthird place recipients were Jim Earl Madary & George Nelson (sponsored by Jim Long). Fourth place went to Dennis Stantz & Carolyn Perry (sponsored by Mark Holland).

On Saturday, 20 teams battled in the ABC Draw Partner Event. Fierce competition resulted in first place victory going to John Tischler, Don Parkhurst, and Slick Parrish (sponsored by Mark Holland) with Jim Earl Madary, Bill Niswonger, and Melinda Flynn (sponsored by Betty Parrish) finishing in second, and Dennis Stantz, Cindy Brown, and Terrie Tischler in third (sponsored by Betty Parrish).

Sunday heat continued, as 16 people competed in the Open Singles. Scott Auten went on to take first place (sponsored by Steve Auten), with Jim Long in second (sponsored by Scott Auten) and Chris Passariello (sponsored by Jimmy Kumpula) in third close behind.

Tournament Directors CoCo and Cindy Brown would like to thank the many people who helped to ensure the continued success of this annual event. Special recognition should be given to Mr. and Mrs. Skip Sliwa (owners of Skip’s Lounge) and the rest of the staff for their generous hospitality, including a great food spread. Special thanks are also extended to Bracketeer Rob Kern, Carolyn Perry, Alonzo Cottrell, Co-Directors Tom and Jackie Meagher, and auctioneer’s Steve Auten, Jerry Siebert, and Bill Kane.

As a Beta Tester for the new Computer Peas program currently under construction, I would also like to personally thank Eddie Brayman and the rest of the Beta Testers for the wonderful job being done on this new age software. This was the first non-simulated tournament I have used Peas for and the capabilities and efficiencies of this program most certainly bring shuffleboard tournament technology to a new level!
