The CNSA IP Tournament will be held in Ingersoll, Ontario July 8 -12, 2019.  Complete details of the event will be posted on the CNSA Website in mid-November, 2018.

All provinces are invited to send both a men's and a lady's team of four players each to participate. The practice in Alberta has been to select teams via a playoff tournament.   Foothills Shuffleboard Association has agreed to host the playoff event at their facility in the High River Curling Club - on May 23 & 24 , 2019.  Entry fee for the playoff event will be $25 per player of which the club expects to donate about 75% back to the winning players to assist with travel costs. 

We will follow a double elimination process (a player must lose two games before being eliminated).  Brian Scott has agreed to prepare the charts.  Depending on the interest of the Alberta Shufflers we may select two men's and two ladies' teams.  For further information or to register for the event please contact Ken Wardley 403 651 6092/480 671 2454 or Brian Scott 403 896 5133.  Entries will close May 17, 2019.

Shuffling is growing in small town Saskatchewan. 
 
Two rural communities have found alternative use for great facilities that already exist and are being underused in their communities. The Villages of VANGUARD and ELBOW are now rolling out shuffleboard courts and introducing our game to their communities. 
 
Jim Lawson (jimlaw@sasktel.net), Vanguard, has organized and brought in courts that are permanently placed in the communities underused curling rink. Jim reports that members meet 3 times a week and the games are on. Jim was introduced to Shuffling when he wintered in Yuma AZ and felt it would go over in Vanguard if people were introduced to it and had the opportunity to try it. He visited High River Alberta to see what they do and the rest is just hard work and dedication.

Meryl Joel winters in Mesa AZ. She wasn't satisfied with just summertime golf at the beautiful golf course on the shores of Lake Diefenbaker, so she convinced some friends to look at shuffling in Elbow SK.. They purchased rollout boards and other equipment  - the games began. They have established a governing board to work with other volunteer organizations in the community. They are looking at reciprocal visits with other shuffling communities in Saskatchewan .  Bob Nunweiler (nunwb@sasktel.net) reports that they are gathering 3 times a week - all summer - and the interests continues to increase.
