Indoor Shuffle Board- on going
Date: January 1, 2014
Time: Friday - 1:00 - 3:00 pm
Length: On going
Cost: No Fee members
Instructor: Molly Wright
Location: Game Room
Description: This month we’d like to shine the light on one of our lesser known classes: Table Shuffleboard. The class is taught by Molly Wright, who began teaching the class with her husband Odie. When Odie passed away, Molly took over the group all by herself. The game involved sliding or shuffling eight metal weights (red and blue) over a waxed table. The different colored pucks are to distinguish teams or opponents. The object of the game is to outscore your opponent by sliding your weights farther into the scoring area than your opponents weight. This is done by either hitting their weights out of the way or off the table, or passing them. You can also defend your points by blocking your opponent from knocking off your weights. Skill is needed as is strategy. Finesse, not strength. The first player to score 15 points is the winner. When more than three players play, 21 points win. Newcomers are always welcomed and Molly is more than happy to teach. The class remains a small yet loyal group of shuffleboard fans, who enjoy the class very much. In fact, when the other classes go on break, her class has decided that they want their class to keep on going. The class is on Fridays beginning at 1:00 p.m.
Beading with Bob
Time: Thursdays 1:00 p.m.
Cost: $5.00 members
Location: Dining Room
Description: “Baubles, bangles, hear how they jing, jinga-linga Baubles, bangles, bright shiny beads Sparkles, spangles, your heart will sing, singa-linga Wearin\' baubles, bangles and beads” What was once a special one-time activity, Beading with Bob has become a regular activity here at the center. On the first Thursday of every month you can come in and choose from 500 to 1000 of various glass, crystal, plastic, metal, shell, paper, or wood beads and make a bracelet for yourself or a friend. Beaders are charged only $5 for two bracelets, which covers the costs of materials. The activity is led by Bob D’Amato. He has been beading for over 20 years. He is self taught, due to boredom. He was looking for something to keep his mind and hands busy. He has taught classes in the past, but for us he lets the individuals use their imagination. He will guide if necessary, but lets the beaders let their creative juices flow.
