The folks who run the Friday night St. Pete Shuffle parties, where young families and singles play shuffleboard on St. Petersburg's magnificent Mirror Lake complex, are starting a youth league (Youth shuffleboard? Oxymoron?). It starts Tuesday and it's free for members, $3 each for nonmembers. The first night of their summer Youth League/Family Night runs from 6:30 to 9 p.m. every Tuesday through July 24. "Families and younger kids are encouraged to stay and play while the leagues are playing," the group said in a news release. Email firstname.lastname@example.org and tell them the names and ages of anyone who wants to be in a league. You can also sign up at the club Tuesday at 559 Mirror Lake Drive N, St. Petersburg.
