Glen Peltier: We’re here today to honour Glen Peltier. I met Glen about 5 years ago and we’ve been good friends ever since.
Glen started playing shuffleboard in the early 80s’.
He was the first President of the Thames Horizon Shuffleboard Club during the building phase and the first 3 years of its existence. He is still an active member.
Glen was the only person to be a director on both the CNSA and the OSA at the same time.
Glen was the CNSA President from 1985-1987 and has competed in many CNSA and OSA tournaments.
He was also President of the Florida Shuffleboard Association in 2010 and 2011.
Glen has accumulated more points than any other shuffleboard player in the history of the sport at more than 1300.
He received the distinguished green jacket award by accumulating over 1000 points.
He is the only male shuffleboard player to receive this honour.
One could call him the Jack Nicklaus of shuffleboard.
Glen has written one of the best Shuffleboard books ever published. You would find most shufflers have either read his book or own his CD.
Glen is one of the most respected and well-known shuffleboard players in the world.
If there were a new player or experienced player in need of help with a shuffleboard problem Glen would be the first to lend a hand.
Last year right here in Elora, Glen earned his necessary points required to enter the OSA hall of fame.
I am proud to induct Glen Peltier to the Ontario Shuffleboard Association Hall of Fame.
