1,000 FSA Points; Earl Expresses His Appreciation. 2017 11 21

Earl Ball Speaks:  1000 Points:  Thank you all for the well wishes and congratulatory remarks.

I just caught up with Stan’s blog and the phone has rang off the hook.  My email has been full of great remarks and the text messages have been many.
Many of you know how tough it’s been to get that last 3 points. I like to think I am unaffected by pressure; now I know that’s not true. Any hair that wasn’t grey is now. I even thought it might start falling out. Strange how we continue to learn about ourselves even at this age.

    A big congratulation from Glen Peltier. I know how hard you have worked. I never had that problem as it was not that important when I achieved my 1000 points I did not know about a green jacket until Jim Allen presented it to me at the banquet. Now Earl you can settle down and enjoy the game for years to come. I,m proud to have both Joan and you to share this great honor. Glen Peltier.

    Records are made to be broken but I have a feeling the 1,000 point plateau will be your and Glen Peltier’s record to cherish for quite some time. The West Coast District sincerely congratulates you Earl Ball, for achieving the highest level only gifted and relentless shufflers will ever reach. On a personal note, I’m proud to call both you and Glen, my friends!
