Carole Archer, Coldwater President, had sent an email saying
“It is almost a certainty that our summer season for shuffleboard is cancelled as we were to start on the 5th of May. So until this terrible Covid-19 has been cleared, we must stay safe and stay inside. Take care and hope to see you all real soon.”
In talking to Carole Archer today I asked about their summer season, and she told me that she is having to tell everyone that the Coldwater summer season is cancelled, and any further news will be announced.
Due to several emails coming to me at once, I missed posting the following from Carole Archer, Coldwater Club President:
“As most of you know, it is with a heavy heart that I send this email to say that we lost three of our shufflers in the last week and one in the last couple of months. Firstly, Marilyn Graves, then Wilson Davy, Liz Fox and four days later Lyle. It is truly a trying time for everyone and now with this Covid-19 it makes it even harder to keep in touch with everyone. I just want everyone to know that once this virus is over, we will all get together and hopefully sooner than later.”
Carole has included a picture of Liz and Lyle Fox-
The OSA will be postponing all tournaments for 2020, as we are in this pandemic, we need you to stay home and stay safe. We will keep you undated on any future news.
Carl Rogerson, Pres. OSA.
I thought it best to clarify that the Saint Mary’s shuffleboard cancellation was not virus related – there is enough Panic already. I asked Ron how about it . If I may paraphrase, the cancellation is due to a decision by the St Mary’s Recreation Department about availability of their facilities.
