Thanks to Blenheim (Golden Acres Shuffleboard Club)


On behalf of the OSA,  I want to thank the President of Golden Acres Shuffleboard Club, Ted Vercouteren, and Roger Kellam, Sec./Treas.,  for hosting our last OSA tournament of the year.  Their many helpers in this club did a tremendous job with the courts,  delicious lunches provided for the competitors,  and made everyone feel so welcomed.

We must thank the tournament director and her side kick,  Marlene and Jim Corbeil,  for all their work and dedication they put forward towards all our tournaments.  Marlene would love to have someone step up and learn how to be a tournament director,  and she would gladly teach them.  Please consider this.

We were also pleased to see new amateur players from Blenheim competing in this tournament, and many did extremely well.  This is a new learning experiment for them, and they showed that they are very ready for this.  We expect to see many more out next year from this club, showing support for their club, they are ready for you!

Congratulations to all participants, win or lose, it’s still a game!

I personally couldn’t attend this tournament, but reports sent to me were very positive, congratulations Golden Acres Shuffleboard Club.

Regards  Carl Rogerson –  President OSA.

Maureen Bryan- Sec.

Hubert Van Eerd Inducted Into the OSA HOF by Glen Peltier. 2018 08 08.

Hubert Van Eerd is presented by Glen Peltier, AND "Pinned" by wife Cathy

QUIET, UNASSUMING, UNSELFISH, SHYS AWAY FROM RECOGNITION; all words that describe to-day’s INDUCTEE into the OSA HOF!! We are speaking of HUBERT VAN EERD!!

Hubert demonstrates these characteristics on a regular basis with regard to Shuffleboard! Whether he is south of the 49th Parallel, or North of the 49th, shuffleboard can count on Hubert, shufflers can count on Hubert!!

Glen Peltier "presented" Hubert to-day in Blenheim, and spoke about Hubert’s attributes. Hubert was "pinned" by his wife Cathy. See pic at top.

Glen has spoken highly of Hubert in the past; offering this comment on one such occasion: "I have been associated with many people that I feel have done so much for shuffleboard and get very little credit or recognition. One such person that i feel belongs on the top of the list is Hubert Van Eerd. He arranges the league at the Thames Horizon Club in Chatham, the monthly single/mingles tournament and all that goes on. He works for weeks getting the building and courts ready for play before the season starts. The most amazing thing about Hubert is he makes everyone happy and satisfied no matter what is going on. The league is on Thursday and he works till night time on Wednesday making sure everyone is paired up right. He has all the teams evenly matched to guarantee top quality play. He does the same in Florida at Sanlan Park. All the members at Chatham and at his park in Florida appreciate Hubert. Hubert is still a very good player and could of been a top pro in Florida but instead dedicated his time, so many others can enjoy the great game of shuffleboard. No words that I can write can express the amount of joy he brings to so many. We depend so much on Hubert, I hate to think of what we would do without him. Glen Peltier"

Glen speaking to-day; 2018 08 08 Most Canadian Shufflers can remember when the Thames Horizon Club (THE BARN) "shut down". Many abandoned hope that the Club would ever return. Hubert did NOT!! He loaded up all the scoreboards discs etc. and stored them at his home. He made arrangements with the city to use the Kinsman building; applied for and received a grant for ten roll out courts; contacted all the members and kept the club alive!! After several years Hubert made arrangements with the new owner of the barn, and we are now back in the barn!! This has all happened because of the determination and dedication of one very unselfish man. I am very honoured to present that man to you to-day. I give you Hubert Van Eerd, a most deserving member of the OSA Shuffleboard Hall of Fame.

Glen Peltier. 2018 08 08
