Volume 9, Number 021

20th Annual NASC™

As of yesterday, more than 100 players from 18 states and two Canadian provinces have already registered (paid) for the 2009 NASC™. Based on our historical averages, this puts us on a pace for a total turnout of 220 to 230 players. 

A new event will kick off the tournament this year - a free welcome breakfast, compliments of the Sands and The Shuffleboard Federation, will take place in the tournament area on the morning of Saturday, October 31 at 9:00 a.m. Breakfast will include, bacon and eggs, sausage links, biscuits and gravy, breakfast potatoes, assorted pastries, juice and coffee. If you plan on coming to the tournament, but have not yet registered, please either pre-register, or let us know you are coming so that we can plan accordingly.

We are pleased to announce that a special guest, George Wilber will be attending this year. I saw George a couple of weeks ago at the Donna Wilber Memorial Tournament and am pleased to report that he looks good and that he expressed how much he appreciated the sympathy cards, letters, and phone calls he received from all over the country after Donna passed away. I sent an email to Sol Lipkin's son, Bruce to see if the two of them would come out to Reno together, but no response yet. This edition of BoardBits™ includes a picture of those two shuffleboard legends, Sol and George, accepting the first Sol Lipkin Awards in 1992 at the 4th Annual NASC™. Please note that George accepted the award on behalf of himself and Donna, who was unable to attend in person that year.

If you have been enjoying the "blast from the past", here is the next "Picture Of The Day", a collection of memorable photos from the NASC™. Thanks to Ann Harrell, who has posted previous editions on the newsletters section of her web site, which you can visit by clicking
