Ron Nurnberger Qualifies For Entrance Into the FSA Hall of Fame!!

Ron Nurenberger now joins six others being inducted into the FSA Hall of Fame on January 14th. Partnered with Allen Dronsfield, Ron and Al battled one team after another as a result of being in the lower half of the chart to reach his 200 points. More information on that after the tournament ends. For now it’s Ron’s great moment as he now is in a duet role with wife Pam, I’m not sure about past records but Ron and Pam could be the first husband and wife being inducted at the same time. As Ron and Pam walk hand in hand through life they’ve just added this adventure to that journey.
Congratulations to you both.

A Novel Idea/Suggestion by Steve McKown. 2018 12 11

Steve McKown Speaks: I had been hearing the last several years that some of the places were seeing a decline in interest and having problems getting new shufflers.

We had an open day at our place and I devised a “Handicap Shuffle” event they  now play every Thursday. It is the most popular and best attended event we have and we have organized shuffle of some sort 7 days a week. Last season we had 70 different people that played. It allows a beginner to compete equally with a seasoned veteran and they love it when they win.
Attached is a copy of the rules. We now have people with handicaps ranging from 5 to 60 and boy is that exciting trying to catch up from that! It does require a devoted person to run it and keep all the records. (Must keep W/L and update handicaps every week.) Also the system discourages sand baggers as you can’t win at years end by building your handicap. If you have any interest or questions let me know.  Steve

Coldwater Shuffleboard Club held their Annual Christmas Luncheon. 2018 12 11

Coldwater Shuffleboard Club held their Annual Christmas luncheon today after playing three games of regular Tuesday morning shuffle.
Several of the player’s dressed up for the occasion and they sang and paraded around the courts to get everyone in the festive spirt.
The dinner was pot luck style and the large roast of ham was donated and prepared by  Lyle and Elizabeth Fox who have been long time members of the Club.
Lyle said he set aside his winnings from the share the wealth draws which the club run each week and from his winning’s was able to pay for the roast ham.
The winter shuffleboard has moved to the upstairs hall in the municipal arena where the club play on 6 roll out courts on Tuesday of each week. Today two of those courts were moved over to allow for tables where the players sat and enjoyed a great Christmas dinner. The food was set out buffet style in the kitchen and the players lined up and marched through where they loaded up their plates with the great choices of salads and hot and cold items and a large variety of deserts.
The Club president Carol Archer thanked everyone for their participation and for making the Club such a friendly place to be each week and she wished each and every one a very Merry Christmas.
The club will play once more before Christmas break and will back at it immediately after the holidays.
We know many of the Coldwater Shuffleboard members are basking in the sunshine at their winter homes in Florida or Arizona and missing out on this crapy Canadian winter with snow and icy roads ” yuk”.
Enjoy your winter where ever you may be ; and may we wish you all a Merry Christmas from the Coldwater Shuffleboard Club.
