SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT:
While on the subject of AUSTRALIAN SHUFFLEBOARD I thought I would use it as a segue to raise the topic of TRAVEL DAYS for ISA Events!! I believe it is something the ISA Board should address in St Cloud FL. One can make the case that those wishing to Add A Little Extra to their journey can merely book a couple of additional days >> either before or after the Tournament. Having said that; an incorporated Travel Day is more likely to add to the social enjoyment because We Are On Singing Together!! Enjoying together!! AS AN EXAMPLE OF THAT ENJOYMENT, click here: http://photopeach.com/album/10cvncv Great Slideshow of our MOST ENJOYABLE AUSTRALIAN Travel Day.
One alternative to ensure we recognize that some among us have employment responsibilities, (like jobs?) would be to have the Travel Day at the very end of the Event.
Brazil TOO had a fascinating Travel Day!! https://theshuffler.net/2016/08/04/memories-of-shufflers-who-visited-rio-in-2005-thanks-brazilian-shufflers-link-to-slide-show-in-article/ Look for the link to the Slide Show near the end of the article.
