The purpose of this article is not to tell you that the Canadian Women placed first in this historic very first International Tournament in Muskegon in 1981, nor is it to tell you that the Canadian Men tied for first with the USA Men’s Team!! Rather, it is to share with you where some of those (Canadian) players are at the present time and further to seek your help in supplying information on those for which we have no information. Send along stories or addresses to email@example.com. I was asked to do this by Peggy House and Verna Carter through Freda Burns. It is hoped that by providing this information ON LINE, we will make it easier for the players to communicate with each other. NOTE: The information to follow was accurate in July of 2008. Any and all updates will be very much appreciated.
