DID EARL GIVE THE RIGHT ANSWER????? Your Opportunity To Give Your Answer!!

EARL ASKED THIS QUESTION ON THE SHUFFLER 13 YEARS AGO!!!  i.e. in 2007

 WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE SAID????

BY EARL BALL: The first person I encountered last week was the MRI technician and it wasn’t long before we were talking about Shuffleboard. He knew nothing about shuffleboard; they don’t have it in the Destin-Ft Walton Beach area. I explained as much as I could as fast as I could, starting with court size and equipment and getting down to how the game is played and how competitive it is. Needless to say, I ran out of time and as we were walking to my next appointment he asked me a question.
HERE IS THE QUESTION: If I could give him one tip about the game, what would it be? My mind scrambled, knowing he knew nothing about the game and I said to him “watch the scoreboard, know if you have a chance to win or if you are about to get beat” and I was off to my next stop.
I’ve thought about that a number of times since, not knowing if I said the right thing! What do you think? What would you have said???
SHUFFLER’S NOTE: Please respond to Earl at earlballzhills@gmail.com

    Peggi wrote to Earl, and SAID THIS: I would say to someone starting “ have fun, learn the basic rules and then I know for sure the game will grab hold of you and when it does you will study it more and more. You will play a game where you beat a pro, or you make an amazing shot and you are hooked. And I still say “ have fun”. Peggi

      Earl Replied: Hi Peggy,
      I like your answer so much better than mine. I hope you don’t mind if I use it in the future. I always struggle with where to start a new player.
      Thank you,
      Earl
