Muriel Burnett Speaks: Satisfied that everyone we met in Thirst and York now knows about shuffleboard, it was time to move on. Our ancestry trail, and the time spent in the city of York and surrounding villages was very successful. York is a beautiful city. We took the on/off bus and heard about its history.
This morning Amanda, I will no longer call her our landlady, as she has become a friend, prepared an early breakfast for us and drove us to the station. We got off at York to change trains to Oxford.
At the last minute we were told our platform changed from 5a to 9. Rushed, but we made it. A few minutes after we took off, the conductor came to punch our tickets. Murray kiddingly said that he hoped we are on the right train. “No, sir, you are headed north to Edinburgh, Scotland”.
We were able to get off at Darlington. They were so kind, and easy going. They exchanged our tickets for an express to Oxford.
Here we sit enjoying the beautiful countryside with wifi on the train. We will be in Oxford in about one hour. Then, off to a side trip to the historic Bampton, and to see Highclere Castle, the town and countryside where Downton Abbey is filmed. In Topcliffe, we saw Queen Mary’s School, where the real-life Lord Grantham lived. Maybe we can have them put a Shuffleboard Game into the next series! Muriel Burnett
Thanks for that Muriel!! 2015 05 06 17:23 local
I promised you in CNSA 1 that I would spend a good deal of time on the National, and I will!! I am now going to windup the “story” with regard to the OSA Trailer. Go here for that windup. http://theshuffler.net/2014/06/13/thanks-to-gary-pipher-the-osa-has-a-new-trailer/
If Woodstock is in your plans, also go here: http://theshuffler.net/2015/04/16/call-it-woodstock-call-it-the-cnsa-any-doubles-call-it-what-you-wish-jim-corbeil-has-ensured-it-will-be-a-success/
This is going to be a Great National!! Better soon book your accommodation, IF YOU HAVE NOT ALREADY DONE SO!! Stan McCormack. 2015 05 06. (I will repeat the information on the recommended Accommodations.)
Shuffleboard Clubs are now opening their doors for another season and Coldwater is just one of those many Clubs. The opening day, to-day saw 67 players come out to play and sign up for the summer season. The rates had to be increase this year by $5.00 and are now $25.00 per person to help offset the increase in Arena rent and insurance. The total of the two combined is close to $5,000.00 for the 38 day summer season. Of course the number of members times their $25.00 membership will not cover this cost , so the Club will have to dig into their bank account to cover the shortfall.
This is the first year the Club has been compelled by the Curling Club to take out liability insurance.
I suppose its a sign of the times , but the Insurance Broker says the wavers we are using are not worth the paper they are written on, and who wants to wait and find out after a law suit has been filed. Click on pic to expand.
When we started the Club 7 or 8 years ago the registration fee was $10.00 and a waver was all that was required. My how things change.
The one picture is of two Zephyrhills players duking it out and the other shows the full house of players.

Glenna Earle Speaks: Hi all! It has been another exhausting day! Thankfully we are soon going home or I think we might just run out of steam.
Headed off to the bus station this AM in a light rain which lasted a couple of hours while we rode comfortably in a bus to Galway. When we reached that city the sun came out and the rest of the day was lovely. We purchased another “Hop On/Off” pass and were given a guided tour of the city. The driver suggested we jump off at Salt Hill at Galway Bay (pic above of Galway Bay) so we could experience the little village and get a nice view of the Bay and the Sea. It was sunny, but windy and quite cool. But we felt lucky to have escaped a whole day of rain. Think it does that a lot around here!
From there we hopped on the bus the next time it came around and toured back into Galway City where we walked along the docks and then the shopping district. (EVEN BOB BOUGHT!! see the sexy bag)Very interesting town with a lot of history too, like so many cities here. By 3 PM the bus came along again to take us back to Dublin, a 2 1/2 hr ride. Near the city it began to rain again but by the time we stepped down from the bus it had stopped. Are we blessed or what!!!!
Had a nice pizza dinner and then walked to a great little gelato stand where they sold amazingly tasty treats, like crepes and waffles with fillings and gelato, as well as in cones or cups.
Finally came back to our rooms and have been sitting with our feet up since about 7:30 PM.
