Lifetime Achievement Award!!

Lifetime Achievement Award!!

Jim Allen speaks:  I received a phone call today from Debbie Myers, the daughter in law of Sandy Myers.  She told me Sandy passed away unexpectedly yesterday.

Many know Sandy for his playing skills, others will remember Sandy as one of the founding fathers of the ISA.  Still others will remember him as the inventor of the Roll Out Courts, and of course there are those that will remember him as the man who introduced computers to the shuffleboard world.

However, everyone will remember Sandy as a man of honor and integrity, a man with a huge heart — and mostly as a man who loved Marg dearly.  The entire shuffleboard world is indebted to the service of Sandy Myers.

CNSA HALL OF FAME: Perhaps Sandy’s most significant contribution to the sport in Ontario and worldwide was the application of the computer!! Bill Clever wrote this: “Sandy Myers had started publishing an International Web Site (The World of Shuffleboard). This was primarily an indexing of all Shuffleboard States, along with the Provinces of Canada. Sandy had designed a page for Florida, consisting of (The Florida State Flag & the State President.) Sandy’s example caused us to ask ourselves “is it possible that we, the Hendersonville Group, might make our web site represent Florida, AND include Hendersonville!!” The rest is history. It is with a good deal of pleasure and gratitude that we acknowledge the significant contribution by Sandy and induct him into the CNSA Hall of Fame.  To read complete supporting remarks: https://theshufflersnews.files.wordpress.com/2015/03/sandy_myers.pdf
