The International tournament in Midland was more than an International
Tournament for both the Coldwater and Midland Shuffleboard Clubs.
While in Midland I was able to meet many of the Midland shuffleboard players and while I had the opportunity I extended an invitation to have them visit the Coldwater Shuffleboard Club . Today Tue Aug 19 we had our first visit from the Midland Shuffleboard Club President David Herring and 1st VP Peter McCloud.
After 3 great games and an invitation to join in the apre shuffle coffee and
cake, Coldwater President George O’Reilly discussed with Herring, different
ways to bring the two clubs closer together by having games between the two clubs on a regular basis.
Having the Midland SBC President in Coldwater also made him aware of other opportunities for his Midland players such as the Ontario Shuffleboard
Tournaments as well as the CNSA tournaments which are held throughout the summer months. Many of the Midland players would like to take part these events, but like so many others around Ontario ; the are not aware of the tournaments available to them. Many seniors do not have or operate
computers and they miss out on all the postings and information regarding
shuffleboard as a result.
David went back to Midland a winner, both in his game as well as the share
the wealth draw.
Coldwater Club extends a welcome to all shuffleboard players to drop by and have a game. The club is open @ 12:30 on Tue and Thur. Games start at 13:00 hrs. and are usually over by 15:30
