ISA President Myrna Bilton Speaks: Hi Stan: We have had a great trip to Brazil. The hospitality is wonderful.
On Saturday we were taken on a boat tour around the bay. The scenery is amazing with the mountains surrounding the bay. On Sunday July 23rd we had registration and then went to the Arts and Culture museum in the afternoon. The Meet and Great was in the evening with cocktails and appetizers representing each of the participants countries.
This morning was the official opening ceremonies of the 36th ISA World Championship.
We were welcomed by the mayor and recreation director of Niteroi. I represented the ISA and Bernar Borges president of the Brazilian Shuffleboard Club welcomed everyone.
A local children’s choir sang the Brazilian national anthem…….this was very touching.
They also provided entertainment later in the morning.
The games got underway today with lots of camaraderie!!
