Summer Season Look Back to 2006. Article 8, 2016 05 04

SUMMER SEASON LOOK BACK!!

It is possible that some followers will have read the articles I will post in this series.  However; as most were posted when Alf Primeau and I had the Website, and as I now have 329 “friends” on Facebook which we did not have at that time, I do hope that both “new” followers and the “not so new” followers will enjoy the articles.  I will avoid some of the more controversial articles.    During this period, Earl Ball, Wilbur Estes, Larry Brown and Sandy Quinn were frequent writers.  DO HOPE YOU ENJOY!!  Stan

The OSA (Ontario Shuffleboard Assn.) Singles Event ended on June 14th of 2006.

ED AND DOREEN McGrath did a GREAT JOB!! BILL & LORRAINE Pollock ALWAYS DO A GREAT JOB!!

The OSA (Ontario Shuffleboard Assn.) Singles Event ended on June 14th of 2006.  Although the Expert level of participation was less than desired or expected, the Amateurs turned out in “big numbers”!!  The majority of the AMs were from the local area and this is clear evidence that shuffling is AOK in the Midland/Coldwater area.  Should add that it was great to see so many participants who drove from Sudbury!!  Good to have you!!

Doreen and Ed in 2006. Doreen Has Left Us. RIP

I believe that everyone would agree the event was a success; things ran smoothly; lots of gifts/prizes and all appeared to be having a great time.  The Midland Club is to be congratulated.  Two Couples had a particular and significant impact on the success of the event.  (Pix in the margin)  Ed and Doreen McGrath collected just under $800.00 in gift certificates and gifts!!!  They are shown with the posted list of supporters from the Midland area.  IT CAN BE DONE FOLKS!!  Thanks to Ed and Doreen!!

Celebrating 50 yrs! Have now added another decade!!

The Pollocks, strangers to almost no shuffler, did what they always do!!  Work to ensure our enjoyment!!  Lorraine ensuring the Tournament ran smoothly; Bill assisting Lorraine, applying beads, not only assisting in laying out the Roll Out Courts but also cleaning and sweeping as the tournament wound down.  Just a great job “guys”!!  Our sincere appreciation to the contribution the two of you continue to make to shuffleboard!!  Bill did find time to demonstrate his always present “good humour” by allowing me to catch him “encouraging Lorraine”!!
