Coldwater Shuffleboard Capital and More from Gary Pipher

More on previous posting re: Coldwater

From Gary Pipher

Hi again Bill. One or two items I failed to add in my previous email was that Coldwater hosted the very first Inter Provincial Tournament and it has been a very successful tournament that is held in a different Province every two years.
The other item was the OSA cargo trailer which the club backed in support of a grant.

Thanks Bill for re-posting the article from Stan McCormacks blog .What I failed to mention in the article Stan posted on his blog was that it was Rendal Bilton “President of the OSA” who made the unexpected but excellent declaration of Coldwater being the “Shuffleboard Capital of Ontario” and he should be commended for his acknowledgment of the never ending support the Coldwater Shuffleboard Club gives back to Shuffleboard.
The new President of the Coldwater Shuffleboard club “Carol Archer” is very keen on Shuffleboard and we look forward to her continuance of this unwavering support.
While Curling is currently ongoing in the Curling Arena the Shuffleboard have moved for the winter and now play on 6 roll out courts in the comfortable auditorium of the Coldwater Municipal Arena from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm. The courts are always filled and several players waiting in the wings.
Coffee and treats are served in the morning and afternoon and many of the players partake in a great lunch at the Royal Canadian Legion next door.
For anyone who attended the OSA tournament in Coldwater last summer you will no doubt remember Carol Archer for her beautiful voice and acomplished organ playing at the opening ceremonies.
Coldwater Shuffleboard has always provided support for other Clubs who were just starting up such as : Fergus/Nobel/Picton/ Penetangushene /Puce /Bancroft/ Wasaga Beach and most recently to Jim Corbiels new Club in Ingersoll ; and of course the assistance the Coldwater members provided to the Canadian National Shuffleboard in hosting the 2 International Shuffleboard Tornaments in Midland Ontario.
They look forward to the tournament they will host in 2018 .

Welcome to the Shuffleboard Capital of Ontario!!

The Celebration Is Over! The Adventure Begins

There are not many readers who do NOT know that Gary Pipher is the former President, in fact the very first President of the Coldwater Shuffleboard Club!! He also served as President of the CNSA.  The article below is but one fine example of the great work Gary has done to ensure SHUFFLEBOARD is before the World

Gary Pipher Speaks: ‎Well we finally got the shuffleboard signs up in Coldwater. It was a long process but I guess it’s normal now for townships to follow all the strict regulations .
Before we could consider having a sign made we had to first get approval from the council with letters back and forth to substantiate the request. After a few weeks of waiting we were given the ok from council but we had to follow all the guidelines with the regulatory bodies. The Director of Public Works had to do…
