Vivian Ball

It is with great sadness I have to inform you of the passing of Vivian Ball.
I am not sure how many of our Canadian shuffleboard players knew Vivian, but I am sure most of us know her husband Earl.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Earl and the Ball family.
May she rest in peace.
Jim Corbeil  President Canadian National Shuffleboard Association.
Webmaster’s Note: We have seen Earl in ISA tournaments and also in Ontario tournaments teamed up with our own Henry Strong. Earl Ball plays out of the Betmar club in Florida.

Letter to CNSA members re our Bylaws

CNSA Members;
Over two years ago when I was elected President I wanted to make the CNSA a true Canadian Association. I asked Don Breau, from New Brunswick, Myrna Bilton, from Ontario, Brian Scott, from Alberta, and myself to draft a new set of CNSA By-laws. We worked very hard on this with the advice of a lawyer. The new bylaws were to have every Province involved in the running of the CNSA and each Province would have at least one Director. 

The proposed By-laws were on the website for five months before they were voted on. Everyone had a long time to ask questions or give an opinion. (which they did) The Revised By-laws were then voted on and passed unanimously, July 2017, at the IP in Moose Jaw Saskatchewan.

Now that we have the New Board of Directors in place, the Chairman, wants to revise the By-laws. (once again) The Board of Directors have been in place only three and one-half months. WHY would we want to change By-laws or anything else for that matter without even giving this a chance to work?
No By-laws are perfect. But these are the ones that were voted in by the membership. I think the NEW Board of Directors should stop and think, this foolish
idea, of By-law change, and get on with making the CNSA a truly Canadian Association.
Thank you for your attention to this matter.
Regards.
James Corbeil, President Canadian National Shuffleboard Association.

Malvern startup

Forwarded from Jim Corbeil

I was asked if I could assist the Malvern Centre in Toronto with their new Shuffleboard program for seniors.
Marlene and I were very impressed to see so many people interested in
shuffleboard and enjoyed helping such enthusiastic people that knew
nothing about the game.
Thanks,
Jim Corbeil President CNSA

Marlene and I went down to the Melvern Centre to help with
shuffleboard. The people were very interested and we spent an hour helping them understand the game.When
we were finished the people were leaving to go to a barbeque put on by
the Malvern Centre.
It looks like it is going to be a great program but they are going to
need a little help to understand the game. If needed we will return
again to assist
Pictures attached and it was great to see people so very interested in
Shuffleboard.
Jim Corbeil, President CNSA

We arrived at the Malvern Family Resource Centre Friday Aug.24.
Thiviyaah, Pushparajah, Senior Program Coordinator and her staff where
busy rolling out the 2 shuffleboard courts and setting up chairs as
some 30 or 40 people filled the gym.

This group of people were eager to learn and play shuffleboard.

Tyviyaah said they are just getting shuffleboard started in their
Seniors program.

After a short talk on how to play and going over some of the rules,
Marlene and I each took a court and started to show the players how to
hold their cue and how to shoot the disc down the court.

We tried to let as many people get a turn at playing in the time we
had to work in, and in that short time everyone seemed to really get
into the game. I think with a little practice and just shooting the
discs down the courts they will have a great shuffleboard program.

Most, if not all have never played shuffleboard before, in fact one
person asked me. What do you call this game?

I cannot say enough about Thiviyaah and her staff for their hard work and dedication to the program. And by the way Thiviyaah and her staff are all women.

With a little more time and practice I am sure the shuffleboard program will grow to be one of their most popular events.

Thanks to the Malvern Family Resource Centre, Thiviyaah and her Staff for asking me down us.

I hope in the near future we have some players from their program involved in the Ontario and Canadian shuffleboard tournaments.
