We Tell You Just A Little About Jerry Deren

((Stan Speaks: Jerry does A GREAT DEAL FOR SHUFFLEBOARD!!!))

   AT THE  MAY 2 LKL NATIONAL SHUFFLE TOURNEY …WHICH I DIDN’T PLAY , BUT TOOK PICS JERRY STANNARD ASKED ME IF WOULD TAKE THE SWD HOF JACKETS BACK TO MI & GIVE THEM 2 WALT & ANN. WELL STAN YOU JUST CAN’T HAND OUT THOSE JACKETS W/O A CEREMONY.

SO THAT’S WHERE I CAME UP WITH THIS IDEA OF A SHORT CEREMONY TO PRESENT THE JACKETS @ THE 25TH WEDEL TOURNEY. I GOT AHOLD OF ONE OF THE SONS …TIM & ARRANGED A SURPRIZE CEREMONY ALONG WITH CAKE ETC. BEFORE THE TOURNEY STARTED MON A.M. TIM, ALONG WITH HIS 2 SISTERS, & `8 GRANDCHILREN ATTENDED. TIM HELPED ANN & MYSELF HELPED WALT PUT THE JACKETS ON. JIM MILLER & SHIRLEY MCCULLOUGH ALSO WERE INDUCTED INTO THE SWD HOF IN BRADENTON & ARE SHUFFLE MEMBERS OF THE BATTLE CREEK SHUFFLE CLUB. THE JACKETS ARE FROM THE SWD & LKE THE CENTRAL DISTRICT THE HOF IS ASKED TO PAY 4 IT.

YES, WALT, ANN, SHIRLEY & JIM WERE ALL SURPRIZED . IT WAS HARD TO KEEP THE SECRET CEREMONY. I LET ONLY 2 OTHER PEOPLE KNOW OF THIS.

JERRY 

It was a great tournament with 29 teams, sunshine, windy and a few rain drops, but nothing to stop the playing.

Thank you to the B.C. club for hosting the tournament and to Walt & Ann for sponsoring the tournament.

The Wedel’s were presented their Hall to Fame jackets (Florida) witnessed by their son and daughters, granddaughter & great grandchildren.  SURPRISE!

Our next tournament will be held in Mt. Pleasant Monday, June 13.  Hope to see you there.                                                      Sharon Olmstead, MSB President.
