Jane McWillie, Captain of Canada West Women’s Team accepted the 1st place finish of her team graciously Anyone who had read her bio would not be surprised that as Captain, Jane had motivated her team to achieve this significant victory.  I give you her bio: Played shuffleboard since 1993. Captain of a team in Desert Holiday RV Park for 15 years.  Executive Director for District 3 of the Arizona Shuffleboard Association for 5 years. Served as a director for the Saskatchewan Shuffleboard Association for 3 years; Treasurer for 2 years.  For the past 5 years she has resided at Sun Vista RV Resort (Yuma, AZ) and assists in teaching beginners in shuffleboard. She also, assists the Head Referee for District 3 in teaching the rules and how a referee conducts himself during a game.  Jane played for Canada’s International Team in Germany and in Seattle. She has qualified for the 33rd International and will be playing at Midland.  Jane played on Alberta’s Host Team in the Inter Provincials in 2011, finishing 1stJane will be receiving a Hall of Fame award (player’s category) from the Arizona Shuffleboard Association in the fall of 2014.”  ((To read how Shuffleboard brought Stan (Prime) and Jane together, click: It Is Not Often That I Get To Write A Love Story ))

Henry Strong: Captain of Canada East, in his acknowledgment to the win,  stressed that when he faltered, his team came on the strongest, and this turned the tide in their favour!!  As I did for Jane, I will now give you Henry’s bio:  “I have qualified for the FSA masters seven years in a row; won the Florida singles in 2008 and won two national doubles in Florida and two world team championships. I have been inducted into the Central District, FL and the ISA halls of fame. Even with all these accomplishments the greatest satisfaction I can hold close to my heart, is all the fine people I have met through the years from around the world. I owe all my success to a very fine shuffler and a finer person in Earl Ball; he has promoted me and set me up with the best players in the world which gave me the opportunity to advance rapidly. I owe a lot to many players and one very special person in my wife, for supporting me and accepting the many days of me playing shuffleboard.”

The gentleman in the center is President Michael:
