May 28th Update Innisfail Tournament 

 It appears we are on track with the current Alberta Provincial Guidelines to proceed with this event as scheduled August 9-12th.  Please watch here for updates  or contact the tournament director, Jack Sell, or Brian Scott if further information is required.  The players and waiting lists were updated on this site May 28th.  

 

 

High River Tournament Update - May 7, 2021

Foothills Shuffleboard Association has tentatively set a date for their annual mixed Doubles Tournament to be held August 5 - 7th.  Entries are limited to 32 teams.  This event is subject to Alberta lifting restrictions on social activities prior to the tournament.  Registration is available on the FSA website: Link

 

May 1, 2021 Update Innisfail Tournament

Obviously there is a pent up demand to get back shuffling.  That's good news .  We have our 64 entries and have started a waiting list.  The entries and waiting list information will be posted under the tab  "2102 Art Scott Singles Entries"  and updated weekly.  

Now we need to wait and see if we can host the event.  It all depends on the restrictions being lifted on indoor activities by July 15th.  One could argue the point either way at this time.  Let's hope for the best.   

 

 

2021 Season 

Current  conditions make it impossible for our club to plan a normal shuffleboard season.  There are  indications that we may be able to proceed with limited activities later this summer and accordingly we have revised our plans with the hopes that we will be able to proceed as follows.  These plans subject to the Alberta Government lifting the restrictions on indoor activities by July 15th.  

We will set up in mid July  with a reduced number of courts this season - only 12.  This will permit us to space out the players to allow some more physical distancing than usual.  

We will host a singles tournament August 9 -12,  the week normally dedicated to the team tournament.  We recognize that the team tournament is very popular and it will be reinstated in 2022.  However, we do not think the captains can  commit players to this event given current travel restrictions and the ongoing pandemic. The team tournament will be reinstated in 2022. 

The singles tournament will be limited to the first 64 registrants and as usual entries are to be sent to Jack Sell the tournament director.  Lunches will not be be available at the rink this year, and we have cancelled the banquet.  However, dry camping will be available as usual at the curling rink.  There will also be coffee and muffins sponsored by the club available each morning. There will be the usual four events and the prize money will remain unchanged.  

During the period July 16- September 15, pot luck shuffleboard will be available on any  Wednesday that does not conflict with a tournament. That means you can come out and have some friendly competition for the day. Contact any of the executive for details. 

We are asking that all participants be vaccinated.  At this time it is not clear if masks will be required, but you can be assured that safety will be our first priority.  

 

Update April 30th - As at noon today there were 60 entries.   We will post the entries on this site as well as the waiting list for your reference.
