More Competitors of Note at the 32nd ISA. Landy Adkins on Stage!!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As you may have gathered by now, as you read about individual Shufflers I have highlighted, I am attempting to select a male and a female form each of the competing nations, and provide you with some of their key shuffleboard milestones! You do appreciate that I am not endorsing the individuals, but rather, hopefully stimulating interest in the event!!!
Selection of a US Female was most difficult!! Looking at the list of participants at the St Petes 32nd ISA, we see the names of Andrews, Allen and Adkins at the top of the US Women’s List!! I now list their FSA accumulated points in order: 294; 177; and 370. And just in case you think all the American women come from Florida, next on the US list are Wilma Rudolf with 1,116 TX points AND Sandi Quinn with 517 TX points!! Please do not be dismissive vis-a-vis TX Points!! I certainly am not!! Wilma placed a most respectable 10th at the Dieppe world singles of 2011, and Sandi is always a threat!!
I am going to highlight Landy Adkins!! Landy in her very first ISA event, 2006 in OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERALakeside, OH, had a Perfect Record; that is she won each of her 11 games!! I share with you, that on the occasion of the presentation to Landy in Lakeside, OH, Landy singled out Kieko Sakuta of Japan as her toughest opponent of the entire competition!! I share this with you as Kieko is once again competing in St Petes, AND YES LANDY, you just may be facing her!!!!
Here are Landy’s exact words at that time: “It was our last frame; I stuck on my 2nd last disc, and she put me in the kitchen ~~ scoring a high 7; on my last shot I bounced off her 7, fortunately scoring my 7, and won the game by only 2 points.” Landy’s remarks were greeted with applause.
Landy also competed in 2007 in Midland, ON in the 26th ISA Team Event as well as in Seattle in 2012 where she captained the US Team. She has played in 8 straight FSA Masters and is a member of the FSA Hall of Fame. Pic at the top is of her induction into the FSA HOF.
We can expect top notch performance from Landy, from all US Women, and for that matter from every female competitor!!
Shufflers All: Why not plan to pay a visit to the St Petersburg Club during the Event!! Shuffling takes place from October 21st through to and including October 25th, 2013. Here is the address for your GPS: 559 Mirror Lake Drive North, St Petersburg, Florida.
