The Earles Report From Sackville Nova Scotia!! Saltwater Club Opening!

SW OpeningGLENNA EARLE SPEAKS: We are off to a good start, as the 6th season for our Saltwater Shuffleboard Club of Nova Scotia, got underway.

SW Opening Hippie Today was a bit cloudy and rain showers outside, but perfect for shuffleboard inside the Sackville Sports Stadium in NS.
David and I loaded all the club equipment into our van and headed over to Sackville where we were met by waiting club members to unload and set up the room for our 1st day of the new season. (Glenna described this man as “One Young Hippie” among us!!
SW Reg Sollows TreasurerWe had 36 players in attendance which means we had a few too many for our courts.  That is Treasurer Reg Sollows shooting on your left.
We only have 8 roll out courts, so a few people had to take a “bye” for one game. We had 4 new players, one who had not played before. Everyone got right into the games from the beginning and there was plenty of laughter and good natured teasing going on throughout the day.
We extended our day from 4 hours to 4 1/2 hrs this season which gives us a bit more time to play  3 frame games in the AM. Then we stopped for lunch ( we have a new Subway on the premises) and went back to play 3 games of Hoss Collar in the PM. All was cleaned up and put away and we were out of there by 3PM.
IMG_0873 (1)We considered this to be our most successful beginning so far, in terms of numbers. We know of at least 6 or 7 regulars who were not able to be there today so next week may see more folks assembling. Unfortunately, we lost a couple due to death or illness which is always sad.
If anyone reading this has knowledge of some used (fairly inexpensive) roll out courts for sale, we are in the market! We are growing faster than we can accommodate. Guess that is a good thing.

Submitted by Glenna Earle.  Thanks so very much Glenna!!  Great Report!!  Stan McCormack, 2015 05 26 1935 local.
