On September 28th-30th Las Vegas held their Fall Tournament. This was one of our smaller tournaments but didn’t lack in great competition, and everyone having fun.
We started our first event on Friday night, an A/B draw. We had 16 teams 32 players. We had planned not to have a sponsors sale, but by popular demand the players voted to have one. The A/B was single game and double elimination. Everything went very smoothly and we finished the event that night by 12 midnight. Most went to bed to get ready for the singles to start the next morning. Our Singles event started right on time after the sponsors sale at about 12 noon. This event was two out of three games to 15 points in the winner’s bracket and one 21 point game in the loser’s bracket. Everything again went very smoothly and to my surprise we finished this event that night about 1 a.m. We had left Sunday open to finish the singles event, but when it became unnecessary, everyone went and enjoyed LA$ VEGA$. Hmmm, should we have a third event next time, Hmmm? The 6 Brand New Champion Shuffleboards now only 4 months old played great, as usual.
The fun never stops in Vegas. Once again we had some great door prizes, and our 50/50 drawing that was won by one of our La Piazza local spectators, Cookie.
We again would like to give a big thanks to Eddie Brayman for his great computer program (Computer Peas). It sure helps keep us on track and time.
These tournaments would never have come together without the help of so many.
