Good morning all you shufflebums!
Feast your eyes on the new blowers nesting in our shuffleboard shed. The color match is perfect to go with our black and yellow discs.
The word from our member volunteers that keep our courts in such great condition is: fewer birds leaving fewer deposits equals less time to prepare courts for play. Prevention is such a novel concept!

More "newbies" coming everyday. Welcome!!

Shubblebums everywhere! We continue to have a full 16 courts almost daily. Remember that lessons are free. No, you don't have to learn how to score when you are new. Learn the strategy and have fun meeting new friends. See you at the courts.
P.S. The Bowling Pin Sunday event has beeen cancelled 2 weeks in a row due to bad weather. 

Newbie Tom. Great student! He will be back.

So happy to see you back Gene. We all missed you on the courts.

Our Club meets Monday to Friday at 9:00 AM,
play commences at 9:15 AM. Come early so that you won't miss out. 

Thank you Robin for touching up our Black & Yellow markers.

Good morning Marg, Diane & neighbour Kristi. 

Just had to get a close up of your name Jinx! You were such an enthusiastic student.

Speechless when we saw these scores. Guess who won this game??

Hooray! Our very first umbrellas! They will be a God sent when the hot weather arrives.

Shufflers line up for the drawing of court assignments. Barb has us all trained to come to her when she shakes those metal pieces in her can!!

February 14th and full courts again today. Unfortunately we had to turn a few members away after the 64 positions were filled. There are 16 courts with 4 players, that makes 64 a "FULL HOUSE". 
A record number of members signed up for the pizza lunch. That meant that Marion, our wonderful member volunteer had to make sure tables and chairs were in place at The Pavillion. You may have also noticed the care that was taken to ensure food was served in an appropriate manner.
I know those special cupcakes were a bit messy! OOPS!! Note to self (Irene Hall) do not buy anything like this again! 

Men are loosing their jobs!!

So many helpers. Thank you.

Messy but yummy

Thank you to all the servers

Quess who lives inside that shirt!!

Thank you Marion. Random act of kindness๐Ÿ˜˜
Welcome Tamara! 

Marion & Dave finally getting fed. Thank you for the help again Dave.

Power tools do the trick?

Yes this BLOWER is a new purchase by our membership.
Prevention is the name of the game!
After our games you may have noticed that our member volunteers sweep the remaining wax mixture from the courts. This in turn is recycled for use the next day. But what about the rest of the wax that is scattered in the alleyways or the courts? Of course we leave it there for the dove buffet?? Well no more feeding the doves!!! Unfortunately the doves leave their deposits everywhere on our courts and alleyways. This makes clean up each morning more time consuming and labor intensive. Therefore, the new blower will quickly disperse the wax mixture to the corners where it will be sucked up and dispensed with. The PLAN is to eliminate the food attracting the birds to our courts.


Feast your eyes on our new water cooler & cup dispenser. With over 140 members, this is a very welcome addition to our shuffleboard courts. Thank you MaryAnn! 
We have the umbrella stands now, so hopefully the umbrellas themselves will make their appearance soon. ๐Ÿ˜‰
