Stan McCormack Speaks: Did you know : that Sisters Milly, Jane and Shirley led the singing of “O Canada” at the opening of Tournament in Moose Jaw in July of 2017?? They also sang at the 22nd Annual Shuffleboard Tournament July 18 to 21, 2016 at T. Eaton’s and Cosmo Senior Centres in Moose Jaw SK with 72 shufflers attending from SK, AB, and North Carolina, and no doubt, at many mroe. Regretabbly, no one sent me a pic??? Let’s hope they will repeat at this Tournament!!! AND MANY MORE!! ((My Father lived in Moose Jaw until “The Dirty 30s”))
We are hoping for 8 teams of 8 players per team. Enter as a single. Names will be drawn from a hat. First name out will be player number one and team number one, second name out will be player number two and so on to complete the team of 8. The next 8 names will be team number two, with the first name as player one, second name player two and so on until the team of 8 is complete. This format continues until all teams are selected. Each team will select their captain.
The captains are responsible for letting their team know their draw times; which court they play on, and whether they play at the head or the foot. At the end of each game, Captains will collect the scores of wins or loses and get this record to the draw master (Aime Archer). These draws, times and head or foot positions are already made up; captains only need to inform their team mates. Captains need to know the rules of play and keep your team up to date.
We’ve also been asked to keep score and referee when not playing.
All entry fees and banquet fees are to be paid to SSA and sent to the Treasurer Milly Molloy before the deadline of May 10, 2018. Shufflers may invitation 2018, MOOSE JAW SK and Shufflers may invitation 2018, MOOSE JAW SK (Click on either; one is pdf, one is microsoft word)
