Glen Peltier Speaks: I have been associated with many people that I feel have done so much for shuffleboard and get very little credit or recognition. One such person that I feel belongs on the top of the list is Hubert Van Eerb. He arranges the league at the Thames Horizon Club in Chatham; the monthly Single Mingles tournament and all that goes on in between.
He works for weeks getting the building and courts ready for play before the season begins. The most amazing thing about Hubert is he makes everyone happy and satisfied no matter what is going on. The league is on Thursday and he works till nighttime on Wednesday making sure everyone is paired appropriately. He has all the teams evenly matched to guarantee top quality play. He does the same in Florida at Sanlan Park. All the members at Chatham and at his park in Florida appreciate Hubert!! He is still a very good player and could have been a top pro in Florida but instead dedicated his time so many others can enjoy the great game of shuffleboard.
No words that I can write can express the amount of joy he brings to so many. We depend so much on Hubert; I hate to think of what we would do without him.
