Comments on the tournament from Tournament Director, Jim Golden:

I’m happy to report our second Las Vegas Tournament was a big success. We had 57 players this year, although it was 18 less than our first tournament of 75 players in 2006, the players seemed to have twice as much fun. All players commented that our 6 Brand New Champion Shuffleboards (from Williams Shuffleboards of Texas, and the 6 New Eagle Scoreboards from Gordie Smith of Canada) played great! We finished our 3 events, (A/B Draw – Double Elimination, A/B/C Draw – 2 out of 3 and Double Elimination, and our Doubles (Bring a Partner) – also 2 out if 3 and Double Elimination) smoothly and on time.

A Big thanks to Eddie Brayman for his great computer program (Computer Peas) and his help which kept us on track and on time.
