PLAYING EQUIPMENT IS SIMPLE FOR DOIT-YOVRSELFER Build A Shuffleboard Court For Family Fun By STEVE ELUNGSON Another measure of civilization's progress is the way that the cost of relaxation keeps going up. No matter what we do for a diversion, the price tag is always there and it keeps getting a little higher each year. · Since it's our opinion that a peraon should not neglect his ·relaxation any more than he should neglect his work, we decided to do something about it. At any rate, that's the reason for the do-it-yourself shuffleboard game and a chair for relaxing in afterward. Ever since we installed the game in our yard, we've had nothing but fun. On Satur 'ay and Sunday afternoons, the whole neighborhood comes over. Then too, it's a good game for these warm evenings and helps everyone to forget about business or other problems. Once the game is installed, the cost is nothing. And when you build the game yourself, it's inexpensive. Shuffleboard is enjoyed by all age groups. All you need to get started is to mark off a playing court with chalk or naint on your driveway. Or, if you like you may do as we did and put the court on the edge of your lawn. The pattern tells you how and shows three sizes so you can fit It to whatever space you have available. Many people have the game set up . in their family rooms. .' Once the court is laid out, you will find that making the cues and disks is no trick at all, when you use the full «ze patterns. You simply trace the patterns on wood, saw the pieces out and put them together. After that you're ready for action. Rules for playing the game are prinl- ed on each pattern.
