ON RAINY DAYS – WE CAN PLAY SHUFFLEBOARD !
Unless it is raining on the courts at 10:00 AM, we are meeting for instruction and doubles play on Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays. Our new Poly Courts love afternoon, night and early morning rain that cleans them off and drains right through them. So don’t be discouraged by general rainy weather; when there is standing water on the tennis, pickleball and bocce courts, come over to play shuffleboard.
The courts are located adjacent to the Umpqua Bank parking lot between the back of the Berger and the OVA offices.
RUGULAR CLUB MORNING PLAY – WEDNESDAYS ADDED!
Due to requests from several people, we have added Wednesdays to our regular weekly club play times. So we are now meeting on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings starting at 10:00 for orientation and doubles play until 11:30. A special invitation to Bocce and Lawn Bowling players; since your club times have moved to the afternoon, why don’t you stop by the shuffleboard courts and see how your skills translate to this new sport. Remember, if you can’t make it on these days and you want to learn how to play, please contact us we will arrange an alternate meeting time.
HAPPY HOUR ON MONDAY AFTERNOONS – TIME CHANGE.
Come to the courts every Monday between 4:00 and 5:00 PM with an appetizer to share. The Club will provide bubbly water, cups & plates….everyone is encouraged to BYOB. We invite all OSC members and all Oakmont residents to come to the courts;we will socialize and (learn to) play shuffleboard while enjoying the views of Hood Mtn. and the Annadel hills.
When you are playing on the courts please observe these basic safety rules:
—When not shooting, hold your cue vertically with the handle touching
—Always use the handle of your cue, not the tips, to move discs around the court.
—When discs land off the court surface, place them back on the edge of the
court….then move them to the back standing area with your cue.
—Please avoid walking on the courts and in the adjacent “gutters”; use the 6ft-
wide walkways on either side of the courts.
The shuffleboard cues and discs are stored in the Shuffleboard Locker at the back of the Berger Center; they are available for all Oakmont residents and their guests every day from 8:00 AM until Dark.
