Another successful turnout occurred at Kane’s Club Car during this year’s Michigan State Championship Tournament. Tournament Directors CoCo & Cindy Brown and Rob & Debbie Kern signed up a total of 55 shuffleboard patrons, participating in this planned three day tournament, including the following events: AB Round Robins on Friday, Mixed Doubles on Friday, Open Singles, Division II Singles, and Ladies Singles on Saturday, and Open Doubles and Division II Doubles on Sunday which merged into an AB Draw. With such fierce competition, there was only ONE team that went undefeated in ALL of the non-round robin events! See if you can figure out which player(s) went undefeated. (I will not reveal the answer until the end of this article for those who think they know players well).
On Friday, 17 teams participated in the Mixed Doubles event. First place victory went John McDermott and Jessica Williams (sponsored by John McDermott). Second place winners were Frank Blade and Sandy Blade (sponsored by Richard Reist), third place recipients were Bill Kane and Jackie Meagher (sponsored by Roland Metevier), and fourth place went to Tom Meagher and Brenda Kane (sponsored by John McDermott).
