    You do have “guts” Jim and you look very comfortable and relaxed just hanging out there in mid air 553 meters above the ground. Wow. BUT That’s not for me.

      It’s not for everybody. But after a half an hour walking around out there, I was ready to relax.

      You’ll have to try it the next time you come up here. That will give you an excuse to come to the Woodstock tournament.

    Hi Everyone, Stan asked me to let you all know how I felt doing the Edgewalk and why I did it. Well, I decided to do it because my daughter and her husband are travel bloggers and they are writing a story on how the Edgewalk is good for anyone at any age. Even us old guys can have an adventure. So they asked me if I’d like to come along. When they write the story, I’ll share it all with you. They have video too! Stan asked me how I felt doing it. I was very relaxed and not afraid at all. It was exciting and it was a great way to see the city. It made me want to do more things like this. That’s all for now.

    Hey everyone, It’s Jim and Marlene’s daughter Deb. I’m so proud of my dad for doing this. He was less scared than Dave and I were, and we do stuff like this all the tim! Nerves of steel I tell you. We’re going to be writing about this on our website in the coming weeks and we’ll have to send over the video of the experience for you to see. We’ve got lots of photos too. Have a great night and thanks Stan for posting this. It’s fun to see. I suggested to dad that he send this over because it’s a pretty cool experience. Maybe next year you can have the entire shuffle association go for a walk around the CN Tower 🙂

    When i was a guest of Jim and Marlene this past summer, i discovered jim,s real name is Clark Kent. He was superman until he retired to play shuffleboard. He is still faster than a speeding bullit, leaps tall building in a single bound, more powerful than a locomotive. And to think, he does it all eating only tofu. Glen Peltier.

    In as much as I’ve been challenged to play the Canadian Nationals and walk the edge of the CN tower; I accept. I’ll be there if you can arrange for me to do that. I’ll pay the cost.

        Hi Earl
        Are you going solo or are you bringing along supporters?
        There is room for six walkers in one session. It take about ninty minutes from start to finish.
        Jim.
