PEGGY HOUSE INDUCTED INTO THE ISA HALL OF FAME:
Peggy House is the only shuffleboard player in the history of International Competition (31 years) to have achieved “Two Perfect Records”!! **
Her first came in Texas at the 4th ISA Event and her 2nd on the 10th Anniversary of the ISA in Lindsay, Ontario. In total, Peggy competed in 7 ISA Events. Peggy’s comment on this achievement ~~ as yet unequalled: “Indeed, there is no greater feeling when competing for your country to achieve your goal.”
One can agree completely that indeed, Peggy achieved her goal by making two Perfect Records!! Well done Peggy ~~ You are now in our Records!!!
Peggy’s nomination into the ISA HOF, Players Category, was approved in Coolangatta, QLD, Australia in September of 2008. She was the 1st person to be inducted into the Player Category.
Her actual induction took place in Coldwater, ON in May of 2009 where she was presented with a Pin and a Plaque. That is her very good friend Nick Klym, also alive and well. That is Peggy’s friend, Blanche Meinzinger “Pinning” her.
Peggy continues to enjoy life and this spring, (May of 2012) she attended Canadian National Shuffleboard Banquet.
** Since 2012, Glenna Earle has also achieved TWO PERFECT RECORDS!! TWO GOLDEN CUES!!
