Stan Speaks: As no official biography is yet available on the SWC District Site, I thought I would add some interesting information, separate and distinct from the official biography, with regard to Peter and Erika’s Induction.
Peter does a fine job as Webmaster of the SWC District. Did you know that Peter and Ericka went shuffling on their Honey Moon?? I know of no other couple that can claim that!!! May 21st is their Magic Day!! And I must say, by looking at the pic to your left, the Magic continues to-day!! As you will see by reading Peter’s remarks, received to-day, they made their way to St Petersburg, and that was without the benefit of the Inter State System we all take for granted to-day!! (Pic taken in our hotel in Sochi Russia while Peter and Erika were participating in the 1st European Open.)
Peter speaks: We did travel on our honeymoon all the way to Florida. I-75 was only a dream of President Eisenhower then. We stayed at The Alden in St. Pete. That hotel is still there today. One super hot morning some hotel guests started pushing those funny looking discs back and forth. That caught our attention. We asked if we could join them to play this game, they agreed and the rest is history.
We do agree with so many shufflers world wide, that the best part is all the friends we gained through out the world. That would have never happened without this wonderful game of shuffleboard. Looking forward to Midland 2014 to see many of our friends again. Peter and Erika.
