Shuffleboard: GET A CLUE, GRAB A CUE

  • By Joan Kline

Well folks, do you know what’s good about longer days and good weather—there’s more time for shuffleboard!

Thanks to OVA Maintenance for the colorful new umbrellas and chairs that adorn our courts. What a welcome addition for a group not out to kill themselves.

And having said that, we’re in the planning stages for our evening wine and cheese socials and summer potluck dinner. Come out and join us, play a little, eat a bit, why, you might even get to watch geese fly in for a landing on their little grass “runway” next to the golf course. It just doesn’t get any better than that!

Club play starts at 9:45 for instruction and doubles play from 10-11:30 on Tuesdays and Thursdays. This is a newly rebooted sport at Oakmont and the option for club play on days other than Tuesdays or Thursdays is open—just let us know and we’ll make it happen.

New umbrellas and chairs are a welcome addition.

The shuffleboard cues and discs are stored in the Shuffleboard Locker at the back of the Berger Center; they are available every day from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM. Be sure to bring sunscreen and a hat.
