Doris has Left Us; Nancy Remains Strong > Along With Partner (Husband) Dean
Doris and Nancy, Mother and daughter, live in Wyevale, ON during the summer. You will find them both enjoying Florida’s sun from mid-fall to the end of March. However; enjoyment for both is competing in one of Florida’s most highly contested sporting activities, SHUFFLEBOARD. You will find Doris and Nancy on the Courts 3 to 5 days of every week, maintaining both their health and personal relationships. Both are Florida “Pros”; that is they have both earned the highest status in the sport. Progression in Shuffleboard is closely monitored and rigidly controlled by the governing organization, the FSA, (Florida Shuffleboard Association).
The picture above is of the presentation of a Bronze Medal at the Polk County Senior Games, Feb. 26th, 2014 where they finished 3rd in their class. Last year, 2013, the Mother and Daughter Team finished 1st in class, earning a Gold Medal. Given the track record of the two, it is not hard to understand why both Doris and Nancy have been selected to represent Canada at the upcoming ISA (International Shuffleboard Assn.) Championship to be held in the North Simcoe Sports and Recreation Centre, Midland, August 11th to the 15th inclusive. Twelve women have been selected to represent Canada. Shufflers from Japan, Brazil, Germany, Norway and Australia will compete against shufflers from across Canada and the United States of America. Russia, Poland and Nepal are also expected to send teams!! Why not plan now to show up at the North Simcoe Sports Centre to see if Mother and Daughter, Doris and Nancy will help the Canadian Women Medal in this the 33rd International Shuffleboard World Championship.
