The CNSA’s Successful IP, by Jim Corbeil

The 2019 Inter-Provincial Tournament (IP) was a great success. We had 6 ladies and 6 men’s teams competing for medals.
The Manitoba men’s Purple Team , and the Ontario ladies Yellow Team took home the gold,
We had 1 player, Maureen Bryan, win all 12 games. Congratulations to Maureen.
A big thank you to Muriel Burnett for taking all the pictures and putting the results on the website. She did a great job. Everyone was very impressed with her pictures and speed of getting them on line.
Thank you to Norm Lindsay and his assistant Gerry Van Ginkel filling in as Tournament Directors for Marlene Corbeil. They did a tremendous job and we sure appreciate them taking over.
Thanks to Trevor Martin for maintaining the courts, and to Gerrit Dykman for his help,
Murray Burnett and Al Rathgeber were inducted into the CNSA Hall of Fame. Al could not attend so Bob Lockwood Read his induction letter and accepted his HOF jacket and pin. When listening to their bios, I thought they are both most deserving of that honour.
I want to thank all the players and congratulate them. They all represented their provinces with pride and respect.
We had a very good AGM where everyone had input in all  goings on in the CNSA and I hope we can move forward with all provinces involved.
We have a lot of knowledgeable people across Canada and we want their input and participation.
The 2021 IP will be held in Quebec City, Quebec. This is a beautiful city and I am sure the IP will be very well attended.
Again thank you to all the players and their families for attending the 6th IP in Ingersoll.
Regards,
Jim Corbeil President CNSA

OSA’s Carl Rogerson Congratulates CNSA for Interprovincial

The OSA , congratulates the President of the CNSA, Jim Corbeil and his board members for hosting the 6th Interprovincial tournament in Ingersoll this past week. There , we met players from across Canada, in competition for medals, but in the end we all made friends with each other and took home great memories. There was a lot of oops and oh no shots made by all of us, but there was more laughter and hand shakes made in return. We all send our best wishes for our tournament director, Marlene Corbeil, who had put in many hours of work to get our schedules of play organized, but couldn’t attend due to medical conditions. We send our prayers for her speedy recovery, and our support to Jim and their family , as she continues in hospital to recover.

We thank Norm Lindsay and his assistant Gerry Van Ginkel for stepping up and carrying on with the directing of this week long tournament. They did an amazing job !!!
We also don’t want to forget those who helped with the courts, getting them ready for us to play every day!!! When a crisis occurs, it is incredibly how others step up to the plate.
Every day we had snacks and huge delicious lunches for all in attendance. The catering was very well done. No one went away hungry.
We thank Muriel Burnett for her work as the web master, who took photos all week. These will be posted online, for all to enjoy.
Congratulations to Murray Burnett, treasurer for the CNSA, for receiving his CNSA award into the Hall of Fame, special awards category. Well deserved for his work he does for us all.
The last evening of the tournament, we had a fun time reflecting on the week gone by, with a delicious banquet, some door prizes won with their lucky tickets, and the medals to the top three places , in the ladies and men divisions were given out. Congratulations to all players, win or lose, this is a game we all love to play. We said our goodbyes to all of our new found friends in the shuffle world, wishing a safe travel home, best wishes until we meet again.
Regards Carl Rogerson, President, OSA.
