FSA HOF ACTUAL PRESENTATION REMARKS BY INDUCTOR!
Hollywood Had the Golden Globe Awards (2007 01 15)
Shuffleboard Had The Hall of Fame Inductions!!
ANN HERSOM PRESENTS MYRNA EBY!
Good Evening: This evening I have the great pleasure to introduce a fellow shuffler to you. She has been on the scene for many years. MYNNA EBY.
Myrna has always performed her duties to the best of her abilities. She always
remembered where her loyalties are by always voting the best for Shuffleboard.
Some of Myrna’s duties included 10 years as the Treasurer of the Southern District. She was Tournament Director for many years not only in the Southern District but in any District where a Director was needed. One I remember was my last Masters in Sebring > 1998-99. She did a fantastic job. Of course, one person calls her “The Pest.” We won’t mention any names.
Myrna felt very lucky to become a member of the Shuffleboard Assn’s Board, as Secretary. She now felt that she could give back to the game of Shuffleboard a little of what she and Carl had learned in playing all these years while trying to master this great game.
Welcome to the HALL OF FAME MYRNA, you certainly deserve
Ann Hersom on the Occasion of Myrna’s Induction into the FSA
Hall of Fame on January 15th, 2007.
AND NOW, CARL EBY:

Served a total of seven years on the District, he also took on the job of first Vice President of the FSA in 1996-97, continuing this position in 1997-98, and 1998-99. These three years he made out both the State Amateur and Pro Tournament Schedules for the season. While doing all of this he also became a very accomplished player. We congratulate Carl on his President’s Award, a feat well earned. THANK YOU!
