Jim and Ellie Crowell Speak: Dear Stan: We attended the 2018 Canada 🇨🇦 55 Games in Saint John NB for Shuffleboard. Daily we updated Glenna Earl plus sent her photos. You may wish to re-read Glenna’s report: https://theshuffler.net/2018/08/24/canada-55-games-excellent-summary-by-glenna-earle/
Just to remind the readers, 2 Shuffleboard Clubs from NS were represented in the 55+ Games held in Saint John NB. The Bluenose Shuffleboard Club in Bridgewater NS – and the Salt Water Club in Lower Sackville, NS.
Jim and Ellie Crowell started Bluenose Club with 2 Courts and 2 clinics in the fall of 2017. We became incorporated in February 2018 and I brought 4 more courts home from Allen Shuffleboard in our motorhome in April 2018. We rent the local Curling Club one day a week.
Three of our members are also members of Saltwater Club 1.5 hours away – namely Rose and Jim Irwin and Jack Hatt. At the 🇨🇦 Canada 55 Games the team that won Gold For Yukon actually moved to Yarmouth NS last April which meant that “ Residents “ of Nova Scotia actually took Gold, Silver and Bronze in the 55 + category. It also means that of the 12 Shuffleboard medals (6 teams) that 5 of 12 were members of our Bluenose Shuffleboard Club. Very motivating.
Stan, we appreciate how much you do for Shuffleboard. Jim and Ellie Crowell
Bluenose Shuffleboard Club, Bridgewater NS & Zephyrhills Shuffleboard Club.
