What Do the Dutch Game Sjoelen and Clearwater Outdoor Lighting Have in Common?

One of the most beloved games my family and I enjoy playing is Sjoelen. Sjoelen is a Dutch shuffleboard game which is a tradition in my native Netherland. The game is played on a Sjoelbak with 30 discs. It is a true family winter game and over a century old. The objective of the game is to shuffle the 30 discs in the four compartments at the opposite end in three sub-turns.

You may be asking me, what does the game of Sjoelen have in common with outdoor lighting? The answer is a great deal and for two very important reasons.

  1. The game requires concentration and precision in order to shuffle the discs into one of the four compartments much like the concentration and precision we pour into each of our outdoor lighting designs.
  1. The game is played on a board, called a Sjoelbak. Most Sjoelbak’s are hand-made from hardwoods such as Oak and feature a smooth, stunning grain with an exquisite finish. The board itself is for many Dutch families, an heirloom item to be passed down for generations.
