Jim Irwin

From Carl Rogerson:

The OSA wish to extend our heart felt condolences to Rose Irwin and family, in the loss of Jim Irwin.

Many of the Ontario shufflers will remember both Rose and Jim, and over the years we have had the opportunity to know them both. They have been very instrumental in promoting shuffleboard, and known to be such fun players.

Prayers from all of us who knew this lovely couple.

Jim will be remembered as a friend and a gentleman.

OSA Pres. Carl Rogerson .

2021 IP – DATE HAS NOT YET BEEN CHANGED

CNSA Shuffleboard Canada

With my apologies, I must tell you that the previous post about a change for the date of the 2021 Iner-Provincial in Bridgewater NS was incorrect. This was due to a misunderstood email from CNSA president Jim Corbeil. Jim has just emphatically informed me that the date has not yet changed but there will be a CNSA decision about the date on March 28th.

I will be removing the previous post on this matter.
