He’s The Tiger Woods of Shuffleboard!! AN ARTICLE FROM 2006.
THE SHUFFLER thanks the Mountain Eagle Newspaper of Stamford for the ideas expressed in this article on “Shuffleboard’s Tiger”!! The newspaper reports that “Stan’s mere presence at a match intimidates the other competitors,” but for Stan, “Shuffleboard is all about the great people you meet on the Courts”!! By now you will have realized that we are talking about Stan Williamson of the Northern District of Florida. The article centres on Stan’s feat of a Perfect No Loss record achieved by him at the 25th International Meet at Lakeside, Ohio this past August. Stan goes on to explain how competitors often become friends for life; the type of person who will drop over to see how you are making out in a match >> or just call you up at your residence.
Stan began shuffling in 1988 and has been on the circuit ever since. The article quotes fellow shuffler Earl Ball referring to Stan as one of the games premier shot makers and play maker, adding that although Stan is a formidable opponent, he usually wins over his competition with his personality >> while beating them. In 16 years, Stan has won 13 or 14 Masters Titles in the Northern District. Twice he has tied for the Master’s title in the state of FL!! Also in the article Stan points out that he needs 40 points to gain entrance into the FSA Hall of Fame >> and goes on to point out that he will be working hard toward that achievement.
I have selected only portions of the article which I believe will be of interest to Shufflers. THE SHUFFLER would like to compliment Stan for ensuring local coverage in the media >> each of us should do a similar thing at every reasonable opportunity. Stan
