Norwich Open; We Give You Team Pix!! 2015 04 29

Glenna All 29thPic above is of the 3 contingents; first level, we have “The Brits” and Tournament Director David Earle in Yellow ; second level in red we have the Canucks; and at the third level we have Uncle Sam’s contingent!  Glenna has also sent along individual pix and I will use them later, and will in those postings, give you player names!  I don’t know about YOU, but I think all 3 contingents LOOK PRETTY DARN SHARP!!!!!  Glenna described it this way:  “This a beautiful sea of colour!”

MB 29thMB 29th Allie Enos instructs Patricia and SueBeth Tourn on going (no narrative)Muriel Burnett speaks now: I show Glennis who served coffee and biscuits to players and spectators.  Note she is sporting an Ontario provincial pin and Canadian pin, a gift from a thankful patron.   Next is Allie Enos, a Pro from Florida, instructing two ladies – Patricia and Sue, who tried their luck at the game. Hopefully, these girls will be future club members, as they make good players.  David Earle was very organized, and tried hard to keep the games rolling along in a timely fashion. Thank you to David and all the volunteers who worked today.

A great day, as smiles and laughter, along with the clicks of the discs echoed the halls of this lovely building.  Muriel Burnett.

Norwich Open We Give You the British Contingent!!! And Day 1 Observations by Jim Allen.

Glenna Brits 29thDavid Cavill,  Alan Dawson, Roger Garwood,  John and Sandy Harding,  Gordon and Jennifer Robbie, Trevor and Cathy Seaman,  Bob Smith, and  Martin Wange.  2nd from left, front row we have Peter Davis and next to him, his wife Lesley. I will try and do better with the Americans and Canadians!!  lol

Jim Allen speaks: Hi Stan,   Whew, busy day, but if the purpose of this event was to promote shuffleboard, and have fun, it was very successful.  Loads if new folks entered the venue. The Mini Court Peter Davis had set up was used all day long by new intrigued players.

Several of these contacts would like to establish a club in nearby cities.  Lets just say Day One exceeded our expectations for promoting shuffleboard  in the UK!

It was no accident — Peter and Lesley worked very hard and the media…..newspaper, radio and TV all were present today.

David explains at TDavid Earle as TD kept us all focused on the purpose of this event, and EVERYONE has chipped in to make this such a successful Day One!  Jim

    Stan, these are some great memories of a wonderful time in the UK. And of course in just one week the UK players will host a team of German players. Its exciting to see the growth of European Shuffleboard!
