Stan McCormack speaks for all Shufflers when he extends to PEGGY HOUSE, the VERY BEST on this very Special Day!! PEGGY: You have a most distinguished record in Shuffleboard. PEGGY: You will be remembered long after your life on earth. Peggy House was the first shuffleboard player in the history of International Competition (37 years) to achieve “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 was instrumental in the formation of the CNSA, became its very first Secretary and held that office in the formative years from 1981 to 1985. She played for the Canadian Women’s Team at the very first ISA of 1981 in Muskegon, MI. Peggy served on the Organizing Committee for the 1990 Lindsay ISA event making regular commutes from her residence as required. Contributing to the camaraderie of International Shuffleboard, following the Lindsay event the House Family entertained the Allen Family, the Nidys and the entire Japanese Team at their home in Stoney Creek, ON.
