Indoor Shuffle Board- on going

Date:Indoor Shuffle Board- on going January, 1
Time:Friday - 1:00 - 3:00 pm
Length:On going
Cost:No Fee members
non-members
Instructor:Molly Wright
Location:Game Room
Description: This month weíd 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.
