Remembering Lew Tansky > by Glen Peltier. 2020 07 22

I was extremely lucky that the great Lew Tansky thought enough of me to take me under his wing and spent many days teaching me the game and making me listen. The hardest thing to do is to take criticism.  Lew would tell me he would help as long as I would listen. He kept a record of how many tampas I would  use compared to how many St. Pete hides I used.  My St. Petes never got me in trouble and though my tampa hides did fairly well, they often cost me dearly. His idea was it is so hard to put up a Tampa hide that you opponent can,t use. He put siucide ally and Tampa in the second choice category. Lee Jordon, Bob Litts  Lew Tansky and myself played many Sunday afternoons at St. Petersburg. When I look back I can,t help but realize how lucky I was to have spent so many Sundays with these great players. I don,t think Bob Litts ever shot a disc that didn,t go where he wanted it to go. I often said Bob Litts just might have been the best ever. I was the big winner when they decided to teach me.
