Carl Rogerson into the Hall Of Fame, Presidents’ Category

Carl Rogerson
OSA President
2018 – 2022

Carl’s induction into the Ontario Shuffleboard Association Hall of Fame was conducted at the OSA AGM held in Elora Ontario by new OSA president Evan Engell, June 14, 2022. Evan spoke about Carl’s history as president from June 2018 to June 2022, made more difficult because of Covid which shut down Ontario shuffleboard events and OSA activities until 2022. Evan talked about Carl’s leadership and presence helping us get through that difficult time.    

It was following several years of service as an OSA board member that Carl was elected president (June 2018), a position he has held to the OSA AGM in June 2022. Carl was noted for his steady leadership style. Living in North Bay Carl would have to drive for hours to play in OSA tournaments in southern Ontario. With his bride Ella by his side, he would often be picking up shuffleboard equipment for others and he sometimes combined such a trip with his travels conducting his container business activities. Carl also obtained a container for use by the Coldwater Shuffleboard Club for storing equipment.  A very busy man!

On the courts, Carl is well known for his white western hat and dapper curled moustache, AND for being a formidable opponent! Carl began  playing in Florida in the early 1990’s and made PRO in 2007. In Ontario Carl has played mostly with George Admiral as his partner, making a very strong team indeed!

Evan remembered the first time he met Carl.  Evan’s Dad was a Clearwater player and Carl had so many nice things to say about Wayne.  It formed an impression on Evan that he will never forget.  Carl’s efforts with the “Saturday” league in Clearwater, demonstrated his true love of shuffleboard.  Evan pointed out that the testament to a true sportsman is his actions off the courts.  Absolutely nobody is more loved than Carl both on and off the courts. 

The OSA is glad to be able to provide this link to a very good post on the OSA website giving more details of Carl and Ella’s lifetime together.

Coldwater tournament

Sent from Evan Engell –
On behalf of the OSA board, we would like to express our thanks to Carol Archer and her many volunteer hands who put on a wonderful OSA tournament. Lunch was provided including many kinds of homemade soup. Not to leave out desserts too.

This was the largest number of players in a tournament so far this year.
It was so good to reunite with old friends and make many new ones too.
Everyone seems to gravitate to Coldwater, we always feel so welcomed and love their courts.
Wishing all the best to Coldwater, see you next season.

Regards Evan Engell-President OSA.
