Shuffleboard at Ingersoll Senior Centre

From Jim Corbeil –

I would like to thank the Ontario Shuffleboard Association for the loan of 5 rollout courts to the Ingersoll Senior Centre. The Ingersoll arena has a banquet hall in the upper part of the building and have given shuffleboard players a place to play. This will enable players from Ingersoll London, Tillsonburg, Ancaster, Thamesford and surrounding area to play shuffleboard over the fall and winter months.
Players will be screened each time they enter the arena to play. All players will wear a mask and practice social distancing. Players may bring in bottled water, there will be NO food allowed.
Thank you to the Ingersoll seniors centre and the Ingersoll arena for their support.
Stay Safe and Healthy.
Best Regards.
Jim Corbeil President CNSA

Montreal group needs help – Disks and Cues


Hello,

Our neighborhood park in Montreal has an area for shuffleboard (croquet and horseshoe toss) which has been abandoned for more than 20 years. I took on the project of restoring it, so that people could come out and play – the lenght of cues is great for social distancing 😉 It is finally ready, and people are extremely enthusiastic. However, I am afraid the makeshift cues and pucks wont last…. I am writing to you in the hope that some members might have extra cues and pucks to give… They would be very welcomed and cherished !

Remembrances

We notify you that, sadly, the following players have passed on during recent years:

Jim Norton,
Basil Fick,
Evelyn Leckie.

I have searched the online obituaries and my own files for further information about our departed friends.

  • Jim Norton: Although one of the online obits relates to a shuffleboard player, I could find no definite information about the Jim Norton we knoew and as listed in the OSA Expert points list.

  • Basil Fick, dec’d February 3rd, 2017. Obituary is here. Basil had 22 OSA Expert points. On the right is a picture of Basil and Eileen Fick – from the Player Bio brochure for the 1st IP played in Coldwater 2009.


  • Evelyn Leckie dec’d December 10, 2019. Obit here. Evelyn, who had 1 OSA Expert point, will be remembered by many of us.

If any of you have memories of these players or more information you would like to share, please comment below.

Reposting with words of induction ~ Induction of Maureen Bryan and Bill Oostdyk to OSA Hall Of Fame

Maureen Bryan and Bill Oostdyk

We want to congratulate Maureen Bryan and Bill Oostdyk on their entry to the Ontario Shuffleboard Association Hall of Fame. Bill and Maureen achieved the necessary points (35) to qualify for the OSA Hall of Fame in the player category. They have played together for several years.

They are both well deserving of this award.
Due to the corona virus this year we do not have an AGM or Tournament where we could present them with their HOF, jackets and plaques. Hopefully they will be able to make their acceptance speeches in the near future.

Two more great players join this prestigious group in the OSA Hall of Fame player category. Congratulations to Maureen Bryan and Bill Oostdyk,

Marlene Corbeil, Chair of the OSA Hall of Fame Committee.

Info needed about resurfacing outdoor courts.

If anyone has a suggestioni, please comment on this post or email shuffleboardbill@gmail.com.

Freda of Port Rowan as written us to say –
We are planning to resurface our outdoor concrete shuffleboard courts in Port Rowan, Ontario. Could you recommend what type of paint should be used for this purpose? It was recommended to use H & C Concrete Stain by Sherwin Williams but we could not find it on their website. Any recommendations for painting and what paint to use would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.


Freda has added that they have two courts

Evan made a comment that they are very keen shufflers in Port Rowan ans could really use our help. (Click on Comments below)

Shuffleboard Bill looked up the DOM Sports (our sponsor) website which has lots of useful information, although the part about paint may be out of date as provincials laws have  changed. http://www.domsports.com/pdfs/Building%20a%20Shuffleboard%20Court.PDF

Bill’s comment Marlene, we are sorry to hear that your season was cancelled, but it seems we are all in the same situation this summer. We will try to stay in touch with everybody on this issue. Some clubs may be able to have a late start even if the season only lasts for a few weeks.
