Tom Gionet Speaks: It has been my privilege to know Barbara Fournier since meeting her in 1999. Since that time, I have been witness to a person who has embraced and fostered the sport of Shuffleboard through her unending perseverance and dedication.
Barbara embodies the true spirit of fellowship, commitment and mentoring of the sport every time she picks up a cue stick.
Barbara joined the St. Cloud Shuffleboard Club about ten years ago, became treasurer for the club for a number of years and has achieved the status of Professional Shuffleboard Player more than five years ago.
During that time, Barb also accepted the nomination of Secretary for the Central District for many years, then resigned to return as Treasurer for the ISA Tournament our club held in October 2016.
Barb’s willingness to contribute and efforts to share the fun of the sport with others more than entitles her to receive this honor.
I can think of no other person more deserving of being inducted into the Shuffleboard Hall of Fame than Barbara Fournier.
