The CNSA President and Wife Marlene Introduce Shuffleboard to Scarborough, ON

CNSA President Jim Corbeil and wife Marlene Report. More Pix at end of article!!

Thanks to the Malvern Family Resource Centre, Thiviyaah and her Staff
for inviting us to the  Malvern Family Resource Centre to demonstrate Shuffleboard!!

We arrived at the Malvern Family Resource Centre Friday Aug.24th, 2018.
Thiviyaah Pushparajah, Senior Program Coordinator and her staff where
busy rolling out the 2 shuffleboard courts and setting up chairs as
some 30 or 40 people filled the gym.

This group of people were eager to learn and play shuffleboard.  Thiviyaah said they are just getting shuffleboard started in their Senior’s Programme.

After a short talk on how to play and going over some of the rules,
Marlene and I each took a court and started to show the players how to
hold their cue and how to shoot the disc down the court.

We tried to let as many people get a turn at playing in the time we
had to work in, and in that short time everyone seemed to really get
into the game. I think with a little practise and just shooting the
discs down the courts, they are off to the beginning of a great shuffleboard programme.

Most, if not all have never played shuffleboard before, in fact one
person asked me. What do you call this game?

I cannot say enough about Thiviyaah and her staff for their hard work
and dedication to the programme. And by the way Thiviyaah and her staff are all women.

With a little more time and practise I am sure the shuffleboard
programme will grow to be one of their most popular events.

Thanks to the Malvern Family Resource Centre, Thiviyaah and her Staff
for asking us down.

I hope in the near future we have some players from their programme
involved in the Ontario and Canadian shuffleboard tournaments.
