Shuffleboard is a popular activity for snowbirds in Arizona, and probably in other locations in Texas and Florida. The first week of November each year the Western Shuffleboard Association National Open Tournament in Arizona. The competition alternates between Mesa and Apache Junction each year. About 400 people participate in the play, making the tournament the largest in the country, according to what I read online. Since Superstition Views at Canyon Vistas, where we spend the winter, is in Apache Junction, part of this year's meet is held here.
Each day, different teams competed. They were here for several hours and lunch was served. We were able to walk around the competition from walkways up above where they were playing, as well as from ground level where they were playing. This is serious stuff.
