Dear Shuffleboard Players and Vendors and Promoters:

No, this is not an April fool's joke. Yes, I said the first newsletter was likely to be the last, but I just want to let the shuffleboard community know that I am still out here plugging away, to bring you shuffleboard news in a timely manner. If you would like to be removed from my email list please let me know. I don't have a "click here to remove" button, but I will remove you just the same.

Tuesday, March 29th, 2005, 20+ tournaments were added to the national schedule, including Colorado, Canada and Washington that were not posted online anywhere else at the time. I will also be posting monthly results and upcoming events at the top of the home page on a regular basis. Let me know if you have a tournament you would like listed on the home page.

I'm working on an original shuffleboard comic. If you can draw, let me know and I'll tell you my idea.

Added a "Computer Tips and Hints" page for printing and other things. If you have a question, just drop me an email and I will give it my best shot.

Things to try: Sometime in the future I will try to do something like, "Live, from Bourbon. It's shuffleboard!" Cable internet is being run and I will investigate what kind of camera(s) I need to use and camera placement. I have done web broadcasts before, but it's been some time ago. I'll need to bring my self up to speed (or more likely have my teenage son do the research) on what the best way to proceed is. If you have any suggestions on this matter let me know! This may not be until fall or later as our shuffleboard season is drawing to a close for the summer in Indiana.

Things I've learned: While compiling tournament dates and creating schedules by state I've noticed a few things that I wouldn't have guessed before. I always had the impression that Texas was the center of the shuffleboard universe. Well... I have found that these states lead in the number of tournaments. They may not be national tournaments, but they are opportunities to play shuffleboard none the less.

Indiana, Michigan, Washington, Oregon, Missouri (not necessarily in that order)

Please check the schedule for your state by clicking on State Index (on any page), Your State, Local Schedule and let me know about any additions or corrections.

To get the best use out of the Search Bowers Ratings, avoid searching by both FIRST NAME and LAST NAME together. To start, make your search general. For example, search on LAST NAME only, then be more specific. Robert (FN) Smith (LN) will not find Bob Smith. Smith will find ALL the Smith(s) in the ratings.

To get the ratings for your state, leave the Last Name and First Name fields blank and choose your state from the drop down list. After that search is complete you can sort by clicking on the column headers. Last Name and Decimal Rating are the ones that I use the most. Your list will either be in alphabetical order or by who is best (or lowest) rated player in your state depending on how many times you click on Decimal Rating.

Use the Records Per Page drop down list choose how many records appear per page. Choose 3550 to have one long continuous display. To do this for the whole list, be takes about 30 seconds. Order by last Name and you will have about 5 people with no last name and then "Candy Abbot". Order by Decimal Rating and you will have Darrol Nelson from OR with a decimal rating of -1.25 at the top of the list.

I will be participating and recording the Journey's End Bar & Grill Amateur 1.5> Tournament this week end. We are anticipating a large turnout from the local league players, southern Indiana players, Ohio and Michigan. I will be posting results late Saturday night or early Sunday morning. I'll also post a picture gallery like I've been doing since July 2004, Sunday afternoon/evening after I rest up.

Good luck and safe journey to all those heading out to Texas for the Champion Open!
