Brazil

From CNSA President Jim Corbeil…

I would like to thank all the Canadian Shuffleboard Players who competed in the International Shuffleboard Association Singles Tournament in Niteroi- Rio De Janeiro Brazil. We were well represented and all 16 players from Canada made a good impression on the International scene.

We had 2 women players medal in the top 10. Marlene Corbeil played in the final 4, and Colette Brodie placed 6th. Five more women placed in the top 20.

We also had 4 men in the top 20.

I am sure we all had a fantastic week of competition and camaraderie.

The extra two days touring was enjoyed by all.

I want to thank all of you for your participation.

Jim Corbeil, President Canadian National Shuffleboard Association.
