Gary Pipher Speaks: When the shuffleboard bug bites it leaves you with an everlasting urge to play the game and stay in contact with friends you have met along the way.
This is ever so true with Maggie Maynerd , a long time member of the Coldwater Shuffleboard Club.
Maggie is in her 94th year and is a very remarkable and spunky lady to say the least.
She was recently admitted to the Collingwood General and Marine Hospital where she underwent hip surgery and was later transferd to the Midland Hospital for recovery .
Maggie was determined to come to shuffle today and said their must be something I can do at the Club ; like selling share the wealth tickets and that’s exactly what she did today.
Maggie is from Toronto and for the past 30 plus years has been spending the summers at her cottage in Waubaushene on the shores of Georgian Bay.
Since joining the Coldwater Shuffleboard Club in 2007 Maggie has always been a competitive shuffleboard player and her determination to play at least once or possibly twice a week adds credence to that great article by Stan McCormack which he posted several years ago, about how the game of shuffleboard can add years to your life.
This has never been so true as in the case of this remarkable and determined lady.
Maggie is shown here after shuffleboard in the Clubhouse having a coffee and a chat with a fellow player.
