Jim and Marlene Corbeil of Woodstock, Ontario.
I share with you a little about the Organizers of the 2016 CNSA National Tournament at Woodstock, ON beginning May 30 for AMs and June 1st for the Experts. Location; COWAN PARK: 895 RIDGEWOOD DRIVE, WOODSTOCK, ON N4T OA6
Jim and Marlene Corbeil have been active in Shuffleboard for some considerable time. Both shuffle in FL’s Central District during the winter; both have become intimately involved in the organization of activities at Winter Haven. Just this spring we shared with you that the City of Winter Haven was promoting evening shuffleboard for the citizens of their city.

The Corbeils are even more involved in Shuffleboard in Canada!! Jim has been the 1st VP of the CNSA for the past two years, AND, the Nominating Committee of the CNSA has advanced his name for President in the upcoming election. Jim likes bright colours!! On the left we have Jim, daughter Deb and son-in-law Dave at the top of the 2nd tallest structure in the world!! The CN Tower. Rumor has it the same 3 just may jump out of a plane this year!!! Who said Shuffleboard is just for old folks???
In 2015 and again in 2016, Jim and Marlene have been able to involve the Community of Woodstock > and by that I mean the City Mayor and Council as well as city businesses!! Gold Sponsors, those who donate $200.00 include RBC Wealth Management; Woodstock Royal Bank; Woodstock TD Canada Trust and Woodstock Sierra Construction Woodstock. Silver $150 Quality Inn Woodstock; Woodstock Toyota and Best Western Woodstock. Bronze $100 ThePlanetD.com. The icing on the cake > the City of Woodstock has paid the $1,238.00 to cover the cost of Cowan Park, the facility where the event is held!!
SHUFFLERS, BY REASON OF THE “GOOD WORK” OF THE CORBEILS, the tournament is ahead by $2,588.00!!
