The Earles, David and Glenna Have Arrived!! High River Alberta.


Glenna Earle Speaks: Today when we arrived at the Heritage Inn (our home for the coming week) almost all the participants had already gathered in prep for the 37th ISA event. Most had been practicing at the Snodgrass Recreation Centre, and they have been telling us about the challenging courts. I expect they will be tricky, as they always seem to be when we play somewhere new to us. Guess that’s one of the things that draws us to this exceptional game.
We managed to get registered and then attended the Meet & Greet. All the presidents of the countries who will participate in this tournament were introduced and each spoke briefly about shuffleboard in their home country. It was great to see Peter Crapelle (newest ISA member)of Austria here. He announced that the ISA singles will be held in Vienna in 2019.
Lovely to have with us, folks from both Japan & Australia, 2 of the farthest away countries.
Ken Wardley, VP of the host club, Foothills Shuffle Club, gave us a very warm welcome to High River. He thanked all the volunteers who have done so much to prepare for this event. We all realize how important these people are and no large event such as this could be possible without them. Glenna 2018 07 16
