SK Shufflers, Like AZ Shufflers, Like Their Boards Fast!! Other Canadian Shufflers Like Their Courts Not that Fast!!

David and Glenna Earle

I publish this article now (2017 08 04) as a result of an “observation” from our most respected contributor, our most respected Golden Cue Recipient; our most respected ISA HOF Inductee; our most respected CNSA HOF Inductee; to be our most respected FSA HOF Inductee on 2018 01 15; AND our most respected on stage performer!!  Just a note of explanation with regard to the “performer” aspect.  David and Glenna have “that down east intuitive/instinctive ability when it comes to musical ability!!”  Probably the best example of this was their contribution on our Cruise  during our very first IP (Inter Provincial) Tournament.  I am now inserting a pdf file which tells us a good deal about the Earles. At the bottom of the 2nd page, you will find a pic of David and Glenna “on stage”!   Introduction of the Earles CNSA[1]   Glenna in reporting on the 5th CNSA IP in Moose Jaw SK was “taken” to be polite, by the speed and unpredictability of the Moose Jaw Courts!!  Her observations caused me to recall an article I had written when wintering in Apache Junction, AZ. Arizona Florida Comparison up 2017 08 03    PLEASE MAKE NO MISTAKE; AZ shufflers, and I am sure SK shufflers, work hard to keep their “Boards” fast!  In speaking of this topic I often recall a conversation I had with Al Wilson who also spent some time shuffling in AZ.   We were both shuffling in Blackstock ON at the time. We reminisced about AZs fast Boards > and agreed that while it was a challenge; it was an experience we both had enjoyed, an experience we would remember for ever!!

Harold Thorne Comments on the 36th ISA Championship!!

Darrell Stuart; Debbie Stuart; Doris Hanke and Harold Thorne. The Hendersonville Contingent!!

Harold Thorne Speaks: We regret that you did not receive many reports from Brazil, but we ran such a busy schedule that there was no spare time.  Up in the morning at 6 am for breakfast, bussed to the college to play.  No good Wi-Fi at the college.  Then, bussed to dinner and bussed back to the hotel.  Caught some sleep and did it all over again.

We did have some great tours at the end, two long days.  We were not allowed to go out on the town except in large groups, and there really was not much time.

The camaraderie among the players and family members was fantastic like it usually is at ISA events.  For Darrell and Debby Stuart, this was their first event and they surely enjoyed meeting the rest of this shuffleboard family.

The Brazil planning group and the many volunteers did a great job and need to be recognized for a job well done.

The real reason you did not receive stories might have been that one of our foursome said “What happens in Brazil stays in Brazil.”😇  Sent along by Harold Thorne WITH THANKS. Stan McCormack. 2017 08 03.  Click on any pic to expand.  No pic of Top 10 Women?????

Get down to this shuffleboard pop-up before it slides away…London England!!

It Works For Them!!

If you think that shuffleboard sounds like another bizarre, semi-antiquated sport that’s about to be given a hipster makeover at a quirky pop-up – you’d be 100 percent correct!
Shuffleboard involves pushing (not pelting – this is a gentle sport) discs along a lane, with the aim being to land your disc (also called a biscuit) into the highest scoring part of a triangular grid at the other end. Imagine a way, way less frenetic version of, say, hockey, with bits of boule and curling thrown in – or rather, delicately nudged in.
Clearly, it’s a low-energy sport, and thus can be played with a drink in hand. Perhaps this explains its popularity on cruise ships over the years, and also its recent resurgence in Brooklyn and Miami.
As ever, what’s good enough for US trendsetting cities is damn well good enough for us, too, which is why the London Shuffle Club Summer opened last month at The Yard, in (of course) Shoreditch. If you haven’t paid it a visit yet, you really should do soon, as the pop-up venue closes in September.
There are six indoor courts and two 22ft shuffleboard tables for you to master the art of biscuit-manoeuvring, and you can even stock up on pizza, cocktails, beer and wine as you’re playing. Sounds like our kind of sport.
The crew behind it are looking to open a permanent shuffleboard London site by the end of the year, but for now, the leisurely fun will come to a close on September 9.
