Weekly Update: Feb. 22, 2014

Judy and I have been busy this week enjoying the many activities offered by the park and the surrounding communities of Avon Park and Sebring, FL. We like having a menu of different activities to choose from. Here is what we were up to this past week;
Monday & Tue –  One of my friends, Marvin, and I were encouraged by a couple of members of the Avon Park Shuffleboard Club to  enter a two day Florida Shuffleboard Association sponsored armature tournament at Sebring FL. We were reluctant to do so because we had only played at the RV park level. We decided we would play so we could pick up some good experience. Our first match (best two out of three) lasted from 9:00 Am until 1:15 (4hrs), the longest match of the tournament!  Even though we lost the match, it raised our confidence level. We continued to play and advance. We finished up in fourth place out of 25 teams.
Wed – Judy went to Tampa Downs with a group from the park to bet on the horses.  She reported they had a fun time. She won $16.00.

Friday – After we played morning SB Judy and I took a drive to Punta Gorda so I could drop off my Florida Conceal Carry Weapons (CCW) license application package. I have one from GA. but now that we have changed our residency to FL I thought it would be prudent to get one from FL. Once we finished our business I asked the clerk if there was a good seafood restaurant nearby. She recommended one at Fisherman’s Village. It was a collection of waterfront shops and eateries on the waterfront. The restaurant she recommended was excellent.

Friday evening we went to the park clubhouse and enjoyed the music and comedy routine of “Spitin’ Image”, an identical twin brother duo.

That is all for now.  Thanks for stopping by.


  1. You guys certainly are busy! Getting quite good at that shuffleboard too :)

  2. You must have been tired after playing shuffleboard that long.

  3. Somehow we have never played shuffleboard in an RV park. Maybe we should give it a try:)
