Shuffleboard is Growing In Europe!!

ISA President Bilton and German President Hussmann

ISA President Myrna Bilton Speaks: We have just returned from a wonderful trip to Europe. It started with Jim & Beth Allen and our European Friends planning an UK/Vienna venture.

We met our USA friends at the Heathrow Airport on Apr 22nd. Beth, our “Mother Hen”, took over and made sure we were all looked after.

First we went to Norwich. Players from four countries were represented in the UK Tournament (Norway, UK, USA & Canada). We then went to Vienna, Austria where Germany, Austria,USA & Canada had players represented in this Tournament.
These tournaments were a true example of the promotion of “International Shuffleboard “. Each country brought players to join together in playing shuffleboard and enjoy the “camaraderie” of renewing friendships and making new friends.

“Sincere Thanks and Congratulations” to Jim & Beth, Peter & Lesley Davis, Peter Krappel, Elisabeth Schimatzck, Hallvard Flatland, Dieter & Birgitt and committees for their many hours of organizing for these successful tournaments.

Thanks to Glenna Earle from Canada for covering each event with stories/pictures and thanks to Stan for posting our wonderful memories.
Thanks to Ulrich Heun from Germany for taking many pictures in Vienna.

Wonderful memories have been made with our “International friends”. My husband Rendall and I feel blessed to have been able to have had this experience.

I’m delighted to share the news that “Shuffleboard is growing in Europe”.

    Well said Myrna. Great picture of you and Dieter. I had to do a double take at Dieter, have never seen him in a ball cap before. You both look good.
