The Orlando Shuffle.

Shuffleboard is free at Orlando's Beardall Courts, (800 Delaney Avenue Orlando FL) each month on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of each month from 7PM to 9PM. I challenged Pam Schwartz to a game figuring I have an advantage as an artist given my eye and hand coordination. I got off to a great start taking a lead but then slipped back as Pam warmed up. I lost by a humbling amount. I tried to erase the chalkboard score but I was held back as a photo was taken of the score. I can claim ignorance and a short memory as I gloss over the score.

At a Tacky Tourist event at the Orange County Regional History Center a shuffleboard court was set up on the floor of the museum lobby. That game I won as Pam teamed up with Whitney Broadaway's daughter. It wasn't a full court, but I am sure Rick Kilby set it up to the official specifications. For some reason Pam refuses to accept this clear victory and perhaps a rematch is needed.

The bottom line is that shuffleboard is some free fun, so get out and give it a try.

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at
