SHUFFLEBOARD IN SACKVILLE, NS, May 30th
Today was our opening day in the Sackville Sports Stadium in Sackville, NS.
Always an exciting day when we begin our shuffleboard summer season and see so many returning faces from past years and sometimes a few new ones as well.
Today was no exception. The smiles and anticipation of another exciting season were visible on the faces of all who attended. We had 30 people appear this AM eager and ready to unload the courts and get set up for our first day. Several of our regular players were unable to be with us, mostly due to the fact that today is provincial election day in NS, and a number of our members were working in that capacity. A few were “under the weather”.
We welcomed some new players to our group and got started with three regular 12-frame games. Lots of cheerful laughter and teasing got the day off to an excellent start. Everyone seemed very happy to be back and enjoying this wonderful sport. It is such a treat for us to hear the folks having such an enjoyable time.
This afternoon we played 3 games of Hoss Collar and the winners were very happy to go home with a couple of dollars for a coffee!! Many willing hands made short work of the rolling up of courts and putting away of all the equipment until next week when we again, will come back for a fun day of shuffleboard.
