9th Frank Kane Memorial Shuffleboard Tournament was held recently
in St. Louis, Missouri on February 24 & 25, 2006 at Ulena’s
Sports Bar. This year brought the return of some out of town guests
from Houston, MO and Arkansas. We would like to thank them for joining
us and adding their spirit of camaraderie and competitiveness.
Place was the team of Robert Kasza and Steve Nowack. Robert and
Steve made it through to the last game of the Winner’s bracket.
They were then handed their first loss and moved into the final
match in the loser’s bracket. They again suffered a tough
lost, but still were able to garner Third Place Honors. Congratulations
to them both.
went to the tough shooting brother team of Jerry and Larry Romay.
Jerry and Larry were handed an immediate upset in the first round
of the tournament. They battled back up through the Loser’s
bracket and arose victorious. They then went on to get pay back
for the team who ousted them out of the Winner’s bracket in
their first game. Jerry and Larry were then handed their second
defeat, but still secured their Second Place Honors and our congratulations
for their efforts.
Place was the team of Jim Dunn and Mike Simpson. Jim and Mike played
well against some good competition through the opening rounds. When
the dust had cleared they remained the only undefeated team in the
Winner’s bracket. In their final match they faced the team
they had beat in their first game of the day. Jim and Mike produced
another defeat of that team and secured the championship and the
honor of remaining undefeated throughout the tournament. Congratulations
to Jim and Mike for their First Place Honors.
to our out of town friends for joining us. Also thanks to Steve
Nowak for all his efforts in organizing and running the tournament.
Thanks to Sanna Clark for hosting this event and her assistance
with the food and to Larry Romay for the pictures. Hope to see you
all again next year on February 23 & 24, 2007 for the 10th Annual
Frank Kane Memorial Tournament.
