Canadian Shuffleboard History – 1966, The Beginning

CNSA Shuffleboard Canada

We are grateful to The Shuffler for recording this piece of shuffleboard history, as depicted in this excerpt from 2016 07 08.

Alphonse and Phoebe Marchand were recognized by the Canadian National Shuffleboard Association on Thursday, July 7, 2016, near Chatham, Ont. for their contribution to the sport, including hosting the first Canadian Open shuffleboard tournament in 1980.

Alphonse and Phoebe Marchand loved to have family and friends visit their Tilbury-area farm, and a big draw was their shuffleboard courts.

Howard Snider

From Carl Rogerson

Howard Snider

It is with great sadness to learn of the passing of Howard Snider from Wasaga, who was an avid shuffler from the Coldwater Club. He had played in several OSA tournaments, and just recently sold their place in Florida last spring. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him. Always a gracious and friendly player win or lose.
Our thoughts go out to his family and friends.
Regards OSA board. Carl Rogerson, Pres.

Clinton Ontario has a new shuffleboard facility.

A very interesting story submitted by Jim Corbeil –

Henry and Leida Gerrits have been hard at work along with Gerrit and Gerdien Dykman. The Gerrits have a farm just outside of Clinton Ontario and they have changed a chicken barn into a first class shuffleboard facility. They have 4 courts painted on the cement floor, with plenty of room between for social distancing do to the corona virus. They have left plenty of room and are able to add at least 4 more courts.
Marlene and I went up to have a look and play a game or two. The courts were reasonably fast and had a few drifts like most places. The facility was bright and airy and heated. They have put in a lot of work getting the place ready for shuffleboard.
Henry and Leida said, if anyone is interested in coming up or over for a game or two you are more than welcome.
Their email is gerritsleida@gmail.com Drop them an email and go and check out their courts.
It is sure nice to see just what people can do when they put their mind to it. This is what shuffleboard is all about.
Thank you Henry and Leida for your wonderful hospitality. We had a great time.
Henry and Leida are in the picture with the two of them you may not recognize them with their masks on.

Beverly Fowler is Citizen Of The Year

Beverly Fowler

We have a fellow shuffleboard player who has been just named Citizen of the Year for her charitable work in her home town of Wasaga Beach. I am sure that most Canadian Shuffleboard Players know Beverly Fowler.

Beverly has played in many ISA and Canadian Inter- Provincial tournaments and we all know her for her enthusiasm and fellowship. She has worked for many years for the Ontario Shuffleboard Association. Whenever you are at an Ontario Shuffleboard Tournament, Beverly is at the first table taking memberships and your money.

Beverly is a member of the Coldwater Shuffleboard Club. She is also a member of the Ontario Shuffleboard Association and the Canadian National Shuffleboard Association. She has been a great ambassador for the Canadian National Shuffleboard Association.


I can not say enough about Beverly. We are all very proud of her achievements.
Congratulations Beverly Fowler well deserved!
Stay Safe and Healthy,
Jim Corbeil, President CNSA

More about Ingersoll shuffling amid COVID19 precautions.

Here’s some information in addition to the previous article – https://shuffleon.org/2020/09/11/shuffleboard-at-ingersoll-senior-centre-2/-

We are using only 4 rollout courts as we leave more than six feet between the courts. We have players sign up and only 16 players are allowed in at one time. Each player goes through a questionnaire by a senior centre employee. We all wear masks and we do social distancing. No food or drinks other than bottled water. If a player can not make it that particular day we do not substitute another player in their place. We have hand sanitizer at the entrance and one person is allowed in the washroom at a time. Hand sanitizers there as well. One player draws the chips and tells the players what court to go to. Stay Safe and Healthy.

Best Regards. Jim Corbeil President CNSA If you have a question, contact Jim at:  jcmccorbeil@gmail.com

Hi Everyone.
I just want to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving.
I hope with this nasty virus everyone is social distancing and wearing their masks. It is a very trying time for everyone, Shuffleboard is on hold in most places and all we can do is look forward to next season. We hope we have a vaccine soon and we can get on with our normal lives, whatever normal will be after this.

Everyone get your flu shot. I hope to see everyone at the Inter- Provincial in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia next June.
Please stay Safe and Healthy.
