Ontario teams did very well at the 2013 Inter-provincial Shuffleboard Tournament held in Dieppe NS July 22 – 26. The Ontario Shuffleboard Association entered four teams: Two teams of women (called Women’s Yellow and Women’s Green) and two teams of men (also differentiated using Yellow and Green in the team names).
The Ontario men took the top two places in the Men’s Division:
Men’s Gold: Ontario Green Team – John Jefferson; Jim Corbeil; Bob Nobels and Max Tate (team captain).
Men’s Silver: Tied between Ontario Yellow Team and Newfoundland/Labrador – Ont.: Carl Rogerson; Don Raymont; George Admiral, Bill Bryan (team captain).
Ontario women were also well represented in the Women’s Division:
Women’s Silver: Ontario Ladies Green Team – Marlene Corbeil; Barbara Howard; Linda McRae and Ruth Tate (team captain).
Women’s Bronze was won by the President’s Select Team and is mentioned here because three of the four members were from Ontario: Myrna Bilton, Marjorie Taylor and Lois McCormack (team captain).
Every participant played 12 singles games (6 frames played on each colour), one game against a member of each of the other 12 teams (with separate divisions for men and women). Results were accumulated to the teams’ total scores.
Congratulations to the winners! Also, many many thanks to all the volunteers who made this event possible!
