Tournament Director(s) Needed

As it is noted we have lost our long time tournament director, Marlene Corbeil, as she has retired from this position.
We are now looking to train new people for this position, and have someone that will do this for us. Please reply to me if you are interested, and I would like to see at least a few to help out . We would start out learning on a paper format, and we will arrange a class in early spring. Please don’t be afraid to try , we can’t run a tournament without a director. I hope I get lots of interest.

Thanks in advance,
Maureen Bryan, sec. OSA.

Thanks to Maureen from OSA

The OSA would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to Marlene Corbeil for her years of work with the organization. As she has stepped down from her positions with the OSA , we wish her the best . We know she has given many years as our tournament director and other positions in the organization. She is now able to proceed with other endeavours and maybe even get to be a player. Her position will be hard to fill, but we can only try our best.

Good luck Marlene, from your friends of the OSA.

Regards Maureen Bryan, sec. OSA.

2022 OSA Sanctioned Tournaments – Corrected

Coldwater dates correction.

Note: All tournaments are played under ISA rules. Format is Doubles so you need a partner – No Partner? – See the Partner Needed page.. Amateurs may play in an Open tournament. Please see Tournament Notes and About OSA Tournaments.

Amateurs should plan for two to three days at our tournaments. ALSO you may play in both the Amateur AND the Open IF …:
Amateur tournaments start on a Tuesday (but not the Ingersoll CNSA), and if participation is high, finals have to be played on the next day. If you are an Amateur you should plan for at least two days because you might have to play in the final rounds on the second day (You have skillfully won your way into the finals and your tournament did not complete on the first day.) Otherwise, you got knocked out of the Amateur tournament on the first day (lost twice) so you are free to play in the Open (starts 2nd day), AND you might even advance to play in the Open finals on day 3!

Tips for *Our* Game (Frame-games)

Almost ALL of our shuffleboard games in Ontario and Canada are commonly limited to short, 12 or 16 frames. Tournaments are played according to ISA rules which specify a game to be 16 frames. A different strategy is needed compared to the 75-point games in Florida etc. Take note that these tips, even if you NEVER play 75-po9int games, will help you WIN!


The following is fun information and tips, content originated by the great Lary Feris, are taken from the Zephyrhills Shuffleboard Club website – .

  • If you are playing yellow, it’s important to try to keep from getting behind by more than one score at the end of the 10th frame, so you can possibly win by scoring with your last two hammers.
  • If you are playing black, you should try to get out to a big lead with your first two hammers and try to maintain a two block lead or better through your last hammers (9th & 10th frames).
  • Because game points are recorded, tacking on score when you are safely ahead is preferred to clearing. Snuggling can be a good tactic for adding on score, especially when you have the hammer. Snuggling eights is a good choice with less chance of being “kitchened”.
    (Ed. Note: It is unusual to record game points in Ontario. If you are ahead, don’t take the risk of losing by kitchening yourself with your last shot)
  • Covering ten-offs is also a good tactic in these short frame games, especially if you are behind and you need to get your opponent going in the wrong direction. At the very least it can kill a frame and possibly cause a lost hammer.
