Norway Inaugural > The Trip Begins! (June of 2013)
Twelve of the thirty-four Inauguralites will begin their travel from their primary residences to New York City where they will meet with Jonathan Schnapp on the afternoon of Monday, June 24th. The group will be given a tour of the Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club before flying out on Monday evening. In case some of you have forgotten, or never knew what is planned for the renewal of Shuffleboard in NY, read this: You have to scroll down the page when it opens: http://brooklynbased.net/email/2013/01/2013-bar-and-restaurant-preview/ We can also tell you that some of the travellers may even take in a Broadway Show while in New York!!
We hope to be able to follow this Inaugural as the 34 Shufflers arrive in Norway and begin their wonderful adventure!!

The Ultimate Shuffleboard Experience!!
I have often written that Shuffleboard is the catalyst in forming relationships that literally last a lifetime. The adventure planned for June of 2013 is such an opportunity!!
Jim Allen Speaks: Travelers will visit Norway, one of Europe’s most colourful countries, and while there participate in a Shuffleboard Tournament. Participants will then be given the choice of flying home OR going on to Moscow for 2 nights to take in the wonderful highlights of this intriguing city. From Moscow you fly to Sochi on the Black Sea, home of the 2014 Winter Olympics, stay in the same wonderful hotel as we did in 2011 AND take part in the Russian World Championships on July 4th and 5th. Leave Sochi on July 6th and arrive in New York, JFK, at 17:00 on July 6th. This is an outstanding opportunity for Shufflers to get together; to compete; and to enjoy the local culture, the local history and most of all, each other. This Shuffleboard Experience has been organized by Jim and Beth Allen. To view a first class video, produced by Jim, click here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dw3fWWcboo8&feature=youtu.be
