With lots of momentum from last year's very successful tournament, which attracted more than 250 players, and set new prize money records for 12 of the 13 events, pre-registration for the 2006 NASCT is off to a great start. With the dramatic drop in fuel prices in the last couple of weeks, we are seeing some of the best airfares in quite some time. If you have not yet made your flight reservations, now is a great time to do so. If you need any help, please give me a call at 800-380-3033. Last year, there were a couple of events that were full, with a waiting list. Although the early registration deadline is still a month away (October 7) we recommend that you register early to insure a spot in the events you want to play in.
As we celebrate the 17th anniversary of the
NASCT this year, we will also celebrate Sol Lipkin's 100th Birthday. Music
and dancing, among other things, will be added to Friday night's
festivities. Any ladies who would like to make a donation of at least $20
can sign up for a dance with Sol. All dance proceeds will be split 50/50
between the Bowers Ratings and the TSA Hall of Fame. We are also looking
for ways that the guys can participate in some fund raising activities for
those two organizations, please contact us with any ideas you may have.
Sol's "official" 100th birthday party, thrown by his sons, Buce and Gene,
along with close friends Dave Corriveau and Buster Corley (founders of
Dave & Buster's) took place on June
4th at the Dave & Buster's in Philadelphia. Several hundred friends
and associates from across the U.S., and from as far away as England were
on hand. Pictures from the party will be available shortly on eshuffleboard.com and may also be
available on the TSA web site.

If you have never been to the NASCT, there has never been a better time to find out why, over the past ten years, more players have attended the NASC than any other tournament.
If you have not yet made your airline reservations, remember that the Sands will allow you to book a room and airfare package, which can sometimes save even more more over their already cheap room rates. The airline which has traditionally had the best packages is American Airlines. To get a quote, visit www.aavacations.com. America West has also had some great fares, their web site is www.americawest.com. Other recommended travel web sites are: Orbitz.com, Yahoo Travel, Expedia.com, Southwest Airlines.com and Hotwire.com.
If you need help making air or hotel reservations, or have any questions about the tournament, please call The Shuffleboard Federation at 800-380-3033.
