PRESENTING JEAN ANDERSON ~~ TEAM CANADA!!
My Story: I am from St. Albert, Alberta where I have lived for only 6 years. Previously, my husband John and I lived in Alix, Alberta for many many years where we owned and operated businesses. John passed away shortly after we moved to St. Albert. We started going to Palm Springs, Calif. for vacations and in 1958 we were introduced to, and fell in love with, the game of Shuffleboard. Our future vacations over the years were planned to coincide with Shuffleboard Tournaments in the Desert Area. We retired to our 6 mos. home in the desert in 1985.
During the years we have met many Shuffleboard friends and gathered many trophies. In 1995, I was Calif. State Champion. Both John and I competed in our 1st International Tournament in 1996 in Laguana Hills, Calif., where I was very proud to have won all my games and was presented with the International medallion. We again competed in 1997 in Hendersonville, N.C. In 2001 I participated in Australia, 2002 Clearwater, Florida
and 2004 Mesa, Ariz., AND I am very happy to have the opportunity to go to Brazil. I have been Video graphing at the tournaments and working on producing a documentary on International Shuffleboard. This has turned out to be a much bigger project than I could imagine and would appreciate any pictures or information anyone has that would be an asset to this documentary. There is no feeling in the world that compares with the emotions you experience while marching with your fellow team members, the Canadian Flag at the fly, and the Canadian Anthem playing. I have been very proud to be a Canadian representing our Great Country. Good Shuffling Jean Anderson. 2005 07 04.
