CMS Club Member Profile – March 2016

Bill Boyes and his wife Penny have been married for 50 years and have been members of our shuffleboard club since 2004. They are blessed with 2 children and 2 grandkids. Bill,  born in Toronto, Canada in 1940, has been a snowbird since 1990. His mother is an amazingly healthy woman of 103 years. Bill has lived for the past 30 years in Pickering, Canada. His occupation as a computer systems analyst and programmer was instrumental in getting the CMS Club BLOG started on the Internet for which I currently help to contribute to, eh?

Bill was president of the CM Shuffleboard Club for 2 years (2010 – 2012) and he along with his VP, Butch Green and Al Bessette, were responsible for merging the Mainland and Coronado Shuffleboard Clubs. Bill also saw to the complete redo of our shuffleboard courts during this time.  He has held many club leadership positions besides being a 1st VP of the Northern District. Bill has and continues to volunteer and give shuffleboard lessons to many of our new members over the years, Randy and I being two of them. He became a Pro and is a past Masters and TOC Champion besides being a part of the 2014/2015 winning Inter-City Tournament team with John Holder.

Bill also started and continues to be involved in the CMS Club’s collaboration with the special needs Special Program And Resource Connection (SPARC)  program.  This Organization provides social, recreational, and sporting activities for people with developmental disabilities to foster individual potential, new friendships and eliminate isolation.   https://cmshuffleboard.org/2015/03/29/connecting-with-the-community/

Bill has stated, “I am very proud of the club’s accomplishments, some of which I had a part in, and very happy to have been part of some teams of wonderful and hard-working people.”

Thank you Bill for all you have done and continue to do to support the CM Shuffleboard Club, it is greatly appreciated, for sure!

    Thank you Bonnie and Randy (Photo-Master), for the complementary article. I must say how much we ALL appreciate your work on the website, as I was not keeping it up to date. But now – WOW! This article is but one example! It’s really yours now!

    I can just look back to my own original shuffleboard teacher and mentor, Bob Finta, all my great shuffle partners over the years, Butch Greene (the best VP possible for me), and EVERYONE who made such positive contributions to our club over the years.
