It would be very difficult to find a SHUFFLER who had not heard of Glen Peltier!!

Glen’s primary objective, at least as I understand, is to promote Shuffleboard, the activity to which he has devoted his life!!  Glen will be partnering with Jim Corbeil at Cowan Park beginning June 1st in the CNSA National Open any Doubles.  While the two deeply devoted, deeply dedicated shufflers may not have placed in the money in 2015, do not count them out in 2016!!  All shufflers would agree that their efforts Off the Courts have set an example for others to follow!!

 Glen Peltier was the 2nd President of the CNSA.  He followed Jack House and preceded Frank Willson, serving from 1985 to 1987. 

Glen was President of the Club on the Marchand farm for 2 years.  When the Marchand Club closed, Glen became the very first President of the Thames Horizon Shuffleboard Club in Chatham, ON.  He was instrumental in gaining the grant money for the Club, so badly needed, and so effectively put to use.    

Glen was very active in the Thames Horizon Shuffleboard Club of Chatham, ON.  Among other things he provided lessons to all who wished to participate; an activity that resulted in the Chatham Club picking up new members on a regular and frequent basis. 

Glen’s lessons ran about 45 minutes and he followed this by pairing his students and coached them while they played. At the end of the season he organized a “fun tournament” and gave every player a trophy. 

Glen carried on this activity each year until he left Chatham.  He returned in the 90s and again provided lessons. The membership grew to about 150 members and Glen was responsible for much of that growth.  He was a great asset to the Thames Horizon Shuffleboard Club.
