A very interesting story submitted by Jim Corbeil –
Henry and Leida Gerrits have been hard at work along with Gerrit and Gerdien Dykman. The Gerrits have a farm just outside of Clinton Ontario and they have changed a chicken barn into a first class shuffleboard facility. They have 4 courts painted on the cement floor, with plenty of room between for social distancing do to the corona virus. They have left plenty of room and are able to add at least 4 more courts.
Marlene and I went up to have a look and play a game or two. The courts were reasonably fast and had a few drifts like most places. The facility was bright and airy and heated. They have put in a lot of work getting the place ready for shuffleboard. Henry and Leida said, if anyone is interested in coming up or over for a…
We have a fellow shuffleboard player who has been just named Citizen of the Year for her charitable work in her home town of Wasaga Beach. I am sure that most Canadian Shuffleboard Players know Beverly Fowler.
Beverly has played in many ISA and Canadian Inter- Provincial tournaments and we all know her for her enthusiasm and fellowship. She has worked for many years for the Ontario Shuffleboard Association. Whenever you are at an Ontario Shuffleboard Tournament, Beverly is at the first table taking memberships and your money.
Beverly is a member of the Coldwater Shuffleboard Club. She is also a member of the Ontario Shuffleboard Association and the Canadian National Shuffleboard Association. She has been a great ambassador for the Canadian National Shuffleboard Association.
I can not say enough about Beverly. We are all very proud of her achievements. Congratulations Beverly Fowler well deserved! Stay Safe and…
Hi Everyone. I just want to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving. I hope with this nasty virus everyone is social distancing and wearing their masks. It is a very trying time for everyone, Shuffleboard is on hold in most places and all we can do is look forward to next season. We hope we have a vaccine soon and we can get on with our normal lives, whatever normal will be after this.
Everyone get your flu shot. I hope to see everyone at the Inter- Provincial in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia next June. Please stay Safe and Healthy.

I would like to thank the Ontario Shuffleboard Association for the loan of 5 rollout courts to the Ingersoll Senior Centre. The Ingersoll arena has a banquet hall in the upper part of the building and have given shuffleboard players a place to play. This will enable players from Ingersoll London, Tillsonburg, Ancaster, Thamesford and surrounding area to play shuffleboard over the fall and winter months. Players will be screened each time they enter the arena to play. All players will wear a mask and practice social distancing. Players may bring in bottled water, there will be NO food allowed. Thank you to the Ingersoll seniors centre and the Ingersoll arena for their support. Stay Safe and Healthy. Best Regards. Jim Corbeil President CNSA
Hello, Our neighborhood park in Montreal has an area for shuffleboard (croquet and horseshoe toss) which has been abandoned for more than 20 years. I took on the project of restoring it, so that people could come out and play – the lenght of cues is great for social distancing 😉 It is finally ready, and people are extremely enthusiastic. However, I am afraid the makeshift cues and pucks wont last…. I am writing to you in the hope that some members might have extra cues and pucks to give… They would be very welcomed and cherished !
