Free shuffleboard......it­s not your grandparents game anymore!

Below is a review done better than I can explain.

Join us for a fun night of shuffelboard at the largest shuffelboard court in the country!!

BYOB and food (please be discrete)

 

 "My all time favorite thing to do in DTSP on Friday nights. Every Friday, 7-11pm, bring your friends and a cooler to one of the most fun and unique events Tampa Bay has to offer.  Here are my tips to enjoy this fantastic place. Park for unlimited time free on Mirror Lake. Head into the club house to pick up your pucks, paddles, chalk and eraser. Take a moment to read the rules posted on an easel (or take a picture with your phone for reference on the court), drop a few bucks donation into the giant water cooler bottle, (the event is run for FREE by volunteer and club members) and choose among the dozens of courts lined above with twinkling lights.

There is always music, either a whole line-up of live bands, or an ipod mixing tunes anyone can jam to. The best part about Friday night shuffle is the real sense of community. Families with young kids, teenagers on their first dates, college students and twenty-somethings hanging before heading to Central, and retired couples happily giving instruction on the game they've spent time mastering--doing something active and positive alongside one another. Everyone is always happy, friendly, and having fun. Bring as much food and alcohol as you can carry, it's allowed! Just please be courteous to those around you, by behaving and tidying up after so the allowance is not revoked. Have FUN!"

    Thanks Lisa. Looks like I'll be "out of pocket" for a while which is so so disappointing 'cause I'm missing so many great events with all the great people at TBA!

    I injured my foot at work this week, I have been wearing a boot and a knee brace this week. Have a Dr appt @6:00 on shuffelboard night

    June 20, 2013

    • Lisa

      Oh no. I'm so sorry!

      June 21, 2013

  • Karen

    Due to an accident at work, I am now a "not likely". My left foot got twisted and injured. I am now wearing a boot on one leg and a knee brace on the other. I have an appt at the clinic @6:00pm tomorrow to find out how it's doing. Foot's still a little swollen and don't know how long it will take to get iout of the dr's office. I'd really like to try this, but I probably won't be able to this time. I will change my RSVP to NO but if by some miracle, the swelling has gone completely and I don't have to wear the boot anymore-then I will join you.

    Is that anything like shuffleboard?

    1 · June 17, 2013

    • Bob

      I think it's better to set a good example than not.

      June 17, 2013

    • Michael

      Answer to shuffleboard. Depends on the age and the limitation put on the shuffle.

  • Pattie

    Sorry to miss this. Hope we'll go again.

    My daughter and granddaughter may be coming to St. Pete that weekend, arriving Friday. So not absolutely sure I'll be able to make it. But gonna' try because this is something I've wanted to do since I move to St. Pete!

    June 12, 2013

    • Judy

  • Lisa

    I'm getting excited about this. There are over 20 people signed up between 2 groups. Don't forget to bring your food and "drink" (no bottles please) I'm bringing a Mazarro's sub!

    June 14, 2013

  • Lazy S.

    Looks like fun!

    June 12, 2013

  • Pattie

    This is so much fun. Great history, some great players willing to teach. We can bring snacks too.

  • Dee

    Visited the shuffleboard courts at Mirror Lake once a while ago. It has a marvelous history and must have been very posh in its day. However, I did not get to play, so, Lisa I'm counting on you to show us how the game is played

    May 23, 2013

    • Lisa

      There are plenty of "tutors" there. I've never done this myself and have wanted to for ages!

      May 23, 2013

  • Karen

    This sounds like fun. I was just thinking a couple weeks ago that I would like to try it if I could find anyone else that was game for it. Unfortunately, I already have plans tomorrow, so I hope you will do this again sometime soon.

    May 22, 2013

    • Lisa

      Karen, its not until June 21st, not tomorrow. Hope you can make it.

      May 22, 2013

  • Sheri

    Sounds like a lot of fun

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
