Gerald Wood to receive George & Donna Wilber Award

We are pleased to announce to announce that one of shuffleboard's greatest promoters/supporters will be honored with the 2010 George & Donna Wilber Award. This is the second year for the award, which last year went to Bracket Man extraordinaire, Rob Kern. Gerald and his Full House Bar & Grill in Wynnewood, Oklahoma, are a great example of how to promote shuffleboard, through a mix of leagues and tournaments. Though Wynnewood is a very small town, it is, as a result of Gerald's efforts, a shuffleboard powerhouse. Gerald was honored in 2008 as the recipient of the Southwest Open's Don Crall Award. Gerald will receive the George & Donna Wilber award on the evening of Friday, November 5, in conjunction with the presentation of the Sol Lipkin award and TSA Hall of Fame induction ceremony for Tommy Workman.

This year is the 21st for the tournament, and the 20th straight year that it has been at the Sands Regency. Friday nights at the NASC™ have become legendary, with the Anniversary Party, open bar, free food, up to $10,000 in cash prizes, raffle prizes, music and dancing. In the upcoming weeks, BoardBits™ will feature some pictures of the Friday night festivities, including pictures from the Anniversary Party, Sol Lipkin Award presentations, Hall of Fame induction ceremonies and the George & Donna Wilber Award presentation.

The Shuffleboard Federation and the Sands Regency Casino Hotel recently signed a contract extension which will keep the NASC™ at the Sands through 2015. The 2009 Tournament kicked off with a complimentary all you can eat breakfast, which included bacon and eggs, sausage links, biscuits and gravy, breakfast potatoes, assorted pastries, juice and coffee. This was a huge hit and, as part of our new contract with the Sands, the breakfast has been made a permanent addition to the Tournament.
