Shuffleboard Is Cool Now!! (A long read, BUT WELL WORTH IT!!)

Stan Speaking: Shuffleboard Is Cool Now!! (A long read, BUT WELL WORTH IT!!) This article was first posted in July of 2017.  I am not reposting it as a “Look Back” article, I am reposting it as an article every serious shuffler with an interest in growing our sport, should read, should think about what the author is saying!! 

Click on the link below. I thought this quote, by Erik Hahmann from the article,  stood out for me: “What I really love about the game is that there is no physical advantage — shuffleboard is a game of touch, feel, and precision,” he says. “An 80-year-old woman has just as much of a chance to win a game as a 18-year-old man. There’s not many other sports like that.” Hahmann likes to say that you can learn shuffleboard in five minutes, but you can spend a lifetime getting better at it. And though the physicality of the sport is low, there’s a high degree of mental strain, stemming from the endless strategizing and the ruthless psychological techniques opponents inflict upon each other.” AND NOW TO THE ARTICLE!!
