Shuffleboard, a tour
In the game of table shuffleboard, each player slides a weighted puck down a narrow, laminated wood table in an attempt to get as close to the end without going over. Every push of the puck must be delicate yet deliberate. It is a game that requires a complete mastery of coordination and uninterrupted concentration. So what better place and time to practice than in a noisy bar when you’re so wasted you can hardly stand?
This method of training ensures that, in a sober tournament setting, your skills will be unbeatable. To support this style of practice, many Tucson bars have installed various forms of shuffleboards, creating what pros (or, at least us) call The Tucson Tanked Circuit. To be the best, you must conquer a number of challenging boards throughout town. Let the tour begin.—Otto Ross, Metromix
