    Congrats Sheila and Gigi. OK Gigi you can stop collecting plackes now. Between you and Rocky the walls must be full. Congrats to Paul and his B.C One team and also to Jack and the Alberta Grizzlies and although they look like a bunch of pussycats they must ferocious on the courts.
    Thank you all for recognizing the ISA Hall of Fame members present. Your accomplishments have reached me here in Sao Paulo, Brazil so the word is getting out. Great event and a great show of sportsmanship. Like the wagon trains said, “Go West”.
