Tommy Workman to be inducted into TSA HOF in Reno

Airfare Alert - Roundtrip from Dallas to Reno from $251

Pre-registration for the 2010 NASC™ is off to a fantastic start and running well ahead of last year's pace, with players from thirteen states already signed up. Just got an airfare update which should be of interest to the many players from the Dallas/Fort Worth area. United has flights available for $251, round trip, for those who can leave on Thursday, October 28.

We are pleased to announce to announce that the Table Shuffleboard Hall of fame induction ceremony for Tommy Workman (aka "Mexican Tommy) will be held in Reno. Tommy does not play much anymore, but was one of the top players of his generation. An old school session player, long before there were many organized tournaments, Tommy was mentioned in the 1967 Sports Illustrated article about Billy Mays. Tommy's induction ceremony will take place on the evening of Friday, November 5, in conjunction with the presentation of the Sol Lipkin and George & Donna Wilber awards.

On a sad note, we are sorry to report that Paul Panholzer, of Novato, California has passed away. Paul was a great promoter of the game and a huge supporter of the NASC™, who brought many new players to Reno over the years. There will be a memorial tournament in California in his honor in the next few months. Check for more information.

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.
