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.

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.

Reflections on High River

I’m with Jim & Marlene Corbeil at the Calgary Airport waiting to fly back to Toronto.

We are reflecting on the wonderful “Western Hospitality” that we have experienced this past week at the 37th World Championship at High River, Alberta, Canada.
Lots of hugs from our Shuffleboard Family this morning as we left our hotel.
We all hope to meet again in Vienna, Austria in 2019.

Thanks to COLDWATER for CNSA Tournament

I want to thank the Coldwater Shuffleboard Club for holding the CNSA Tournament this past week. President, Carol Archer, her Executive and all the volunteers did a great job.
The Banquet was a complete success, the food was great as usual.
Coldwater will be hosting this CNSA Toutnament again next year.
Coldwater has a population of 1100 and their club has a membership well over 100. They also have a special needs group of around 20.  That tells me that they are doing somthing right.
 That is why Coldwater is known as the Shuffleboard Capital of Ontario.
 Clubs in larger towns and cities do not have this kind of membership.
We are looking forward to the Inter Provincial next July 7th-11th,  2019.  I am sure the Coldwater Shufffeboard Club will be up to the task.
I hope that all the Provinces will have at least one woman’s team and one man’s team.
Thanks again to the Coldwater Club for a great Toutnament.
Jim Corbeil, President CNSA.
