ISA President Michael Zellner added his accolades:  FLAG ISA (Seattle intro)

Dear Don,  Congratulations on your induction into the Canadian National Shuffleboard Hall of Fame.  You are truly deserving of this honour and can walk proudly among those who have gone before you. In my time working with you in 2011 during the 30th ISA World Shuffleboard Championship in Dieppe, Canada, I found you to be an outstanding professional, totally dedicated to getting everything right and a downright friendly person to work with.

Your actions reflected highly upon your shuffleboard club, community and Nation.  As we all know, behind every good man is his silent partner. This evening and honour should be shared with your wife Bern because no finer team than you two exists in Canada.

Tonight  shufflers around the world and I, are with you both in spirit.

Warmest Wishes,

Michael Robert Zellner, President, ISA

    Hi Don congratulations on your induction into the CNSA hall of fame. You have done a great job in the Shuffleboard Club in Moncton and Dieppe area. You have promoted Shuffleboard for 20 years in your area, and done a great job. People don’t realize the effort it takes to do that job for that many years. I would like to thank you for the support you have given to me in promoting Shuffleboard in my area of NS. You loaned me courts, blocks, cues etc.. to get me started. Without you we probably would not be where we are today. Thank you from the CCSC in Pugwash for all you, and your club have done for us. Bravo Zulu.
