We are privileged to have the son of Dieter and Birgitt Hussmann visiting Ohio and Florida this summer!
This picture is the entire staff, and Beth Allen has the cookie around her neck!
After Torben Hussmann’s successful 2 weeks in Lakeside (National Champion winnner!**), it is all business for him the next 4 weeks. Torben is staying at the Allen home at nighttime, but during the day he is busy learning the business side of shuffleboard as he is working at the Allen R Shuffleboard Co. from July 29th until August 25th.
Upon his arrival he presented the Allen family with a gingerbread cookie from his home town of Langenselbold, Germany. This cookie was decorated with beer mugs and pretzels, for as Torben tells us….this is what everyone thinks of when they think of Germany. Of course, those of us in the shuffleboard community would add – we think of great shufflers!
Upon his return to Germany in 4 weeks Torben will enter his University where he will be studying Sports Management.
We wish Torben Hussmann success in every aspect of his life, and appreciate the opportunity to share this learning experience with him during the summer of ’13.
Jim and Beth Allen
