October 2017 — Melony and George Potter they are the head of the BC Floor Shuffleboard Society. firstname.lastname@example.org
November 2016 — From: Linda and Dennis Kerr <email@example.com>
… George and Melody Potter purchased 4 roll up boards and cues and brought them home to Yahk B.C. in 2015. They approached the Yahk/Kingsgate Recreation Society in order to use the Community Hall as the venue. The hall has a beautiful hardwood floor, an outdoor kitchen, covered outdoor seating area, also picnic tables and large fire pit under the canopy of tall evergreens. August 15-18 2016 the first BC Singles Tournament was held in Yahk with Dennis Kerr as Tournament Director. We had players from BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Yuma. Monday night we had our tournament country style dinner, and we were also able to offer lunches on Tuesday and Wednesday. The property at the hall allows plenty of room for dry camping, water is available on site. Within 1 km there are public and government campsites and 1 motel also. There is also 2 RV’s for rent and a bed and breakfast within 5 minutes. Also there is the casino at Bonners Ferry Idaho which is 30 minutes. Creston is also within 30 minutes and Cranbrook is 45 minutes – both offer RV parks, hotels, and all amenities and shopping.
The plan for 2017 is to hold a Team Tournament…with a twist. Players enter as for a single tournament, and teams are chosen before playing on Monday, by a random draw which avoids “stacking” of teams and also allows new or inexperienced players to participate fully without being bumped out. There will be a Monday night dinner, breakfasts and lunches available at the venue as well.
After the 2016 Tournament, with the aid and direction from Dave St. Germain and Penny A. P. Anderson, we were able to form the B.C. Floor Shuffleboard Society. A not for profit society in order to promote the game of shuffleboard locally and throughout B.C.
