BoardBits.com - Table Shuffleboard new and information
Introducing: BoardBits.com™  
Greetings fellow shuffleboard enthusiasts.

This is the first in a regular series of shuffleboard "e-news" publications, brought to you by The Shuffleboard Federation. BoardBits.com™ will keep you up to date on upcoming Shuffleboard Federation events, provide results and pictures of previous events and offer useful shuffleboard information such as an Ask the Pros section, new product information and other relevant shuffleboard topics. We are looking for a logo for BoardBits.com™. Anyone with artistic ability and imagination is invited to submit their ideas. For now, most of the information will be maintained on our web site shuffleboardfederation.com. A separate web site for BoardBits.com™ will be developed in the coming months. Please feel free to let us know what type of information you would like to see included.

In this inaugural issue, there are links to the Tournament Info section of our web site, where you can view the results of the recent WCT, including the scores of all the games in the Round Robin Singles and a group photo of the participants.

Plans have been finalized for the 2001 North American Shuffleboard Championships™. The 2001 NASC™, which is being held October 28 - November 4 at the Sands Regency Casino Hotel in Reno, Nevada, features several exciting changes in events and format. The flyer will be in the June issue of The Board Talk, but you can get a jump on the competition by printing an entry form right off the web site and sending it in early to secure your spot. You can also view the Schedule of Events and general information by clicking the appropriate links.

Tournament directors that would like to have information about their future events listed in our upcoming events section should email the information to info@shuffleboardfederation.com. Anyone with a question they would like to have considered for our ask the pros section should also email it to info@shuffleboardfederation.com. Our panel of pro players includes Bill Melton, Darrol Nelson, Dan Hitt, Bobby Voorhis, Diana Hagen and John McDermott. Additional players will be added to this list in the near future.

Southwest Open Update: Just a reminder to anyone who is going to Del City, Oklahoma for the annual 4th of July Tournament, the early registration deadline is June 15. After that date, there is a late fee of $5.00 for registration and for each event entered.

  • I was delighted to find their excellent web site for the first time. I was in need of some supplies before NY Eve and they gave the order special attention and got me the goods when I needed them. It was excellent service supported by individual attention from the head of the Federation.

  • Extra-emely great service. Will continue to get products from them.

  • Thanks for the prompt service and quality selections. I built a handmade shuffleboard table, and needed a good source for accessories, you guys are it, for sure. Thanks again...

  • I submitted my order and received it in two days. I can't complain about the service I received.

  • Way out here in Hawaii, I expected the order to take weeks for the Shuffleboard Federation to complete - even though I had commented that I would pay extra for other than the ground based delivery services that were assumed. Imagine my delight when within days I had received my rather modestly priced order!

  • The representative was extremely responsive to my questions, providing immediate and helpful feedback. This is what customer service is about.

  • Without a doubt the very best on-line purchase experience I've had. This company is a definite credit to e-commerce. 100% accuracy with the order and a delivery that was almost unbelievably fast, 2 days! I look forward to doing business with them again.

  • A small order placed through Internet, quick e-mail confirmation, two day delivery, and a follow-up phone call to assure that everything was OK. Who could ask for more?

  • I am very satisfied with The Shuffleboard Federation personnel, products and shipping schedules.

  • I had ordered the wrong item, but when I contacted them, they advised me which item I needed to order, placed the order, and handled the return of the incorrect product for me, all within 2 days.

  • The order was correct and came as fast as if I had made a phone order. The product was all that I expected. I will order (from) the Shuffleboard Federation again when the need arises.

  • Great company, very responsive, good service, good delivery, followed up via email to assure satisfaction. VERY IMPRESSED.
