Mary is from Easton, Massachusetts. Extra curricular high school activities
included basketball, cheerleading, field hockey and softball. She and Bob her
husband, spend summer time in their camp in Gilmanton, New Hampshire
near Sawyer Lake.

They moved in 1990 to Winter Park in Zephyrhills, Fl. Both took shuffle
board lessons and their shuffle careers began. Her first trophy was earned in
1992. Mary made “Pro” in February 1995. The year before she played in the
1994 Amateur Reiny Masters Tournament. In 1996 the Christensen’s moved
to Betmar Park with covered courts. She played nine other times in the
end-of-the-year District Masters Classics, taking first place twice, most
recently in 2011.

Mary’s most memorable amateur tournament was a 1955 first place 89-team
event with partner Marshall Leigh at Woodall’s Park in Lakeland. She played
a critically special tournament with Dean Myklejord on January 9,
Sanlan Ranch in Lakeland, yielding the coveted last point for District Hall of
Fame status.

She thanks you, for many partners, for your support. Thank you, Bob for our
two wins together.
