IS THIS A PITCH FOR SHFFLEBOARD OR WHAT??
COULD THE WRITER BE SPEAKING ABOUT SHUFFLEBOARD? HE SPOKE OF LITTLE ELSE!!

WE URGE YOU TO USE THESE QUOTES TO PROMOTE SHUFFLING!!

“It’s not a difficult game, and it adds a new dimension to your social life. What other sport allows a mother and son to challenge a father and daughter?”

“It is about placement, coordination and having fun, not brute strength, or demonic speed. If you like people and enjoy being active, you’ll have fun and get some exercise”.

“It took a friend several months to convince me to play. Once I started, I got hooked on it. It’s a lot more fun than working out on the machines. And it can be played in different degrees, from hard to “we’re just out here to have fun”.

“It’s a very aggressive game, but friendly”.

“The women are more tactical. They don’t hit as hard, but they can make you twist and turn. The men slam it down your face”.

“You get to meet people and it’s not like a country club environment. You get to play with everybody”.

“It just makes me happy”.

“Getting – or staying – fit in your senior years can help you stay young”.

“Remind older folks the more active they are, the better their health will be, and the more likely they will remain independent as they age”.

“Bring grandchildren over to play. When older folks realize what it takes to keep up with kids, they might be motivated to become active”.

“Enlist the help of active friends or family. Exercising is a great way to socialize and it makes it more fun to do it together. Doing it as a family unit would be very encouraging”.

“I just love the competition. I love playing the sports, and I love meeting new people and seeing my old friends at different tournaments. It’s just a joy to do. The quality of life has been wonderful because of the sports. I enjoy playing them and I’ll do it as long as I can”.
