STONEY CREEK CITIZEN INTO NATIONAL HALL OF FAME!!
Jack House of Stoney Creek has a distinguished career record in the sport of Shuffleboard ~~ so much so that he was recently inducted into the Canadian National Shuffleboard Association (CNSA) Hall of Fame. Jack was the very first President of the CNSA ~ serving with distinction from 1981 to 1985. Not only did Jack overcome the difficulties of being the “1st President” of the National organization, he was able to select a Canadian Shuffleboard team that in 1981 at Muskegon, MI won both the Men’s division and the Women’s division of the very first International Shuffleboard Competition ever held. This year at Lakeside, Ohio, the 25th International competition will be held and of course Canada will be represented. International competitions have been held in Canada, Japan, Australia, Brazil and the United States. At the induction Jack and wife Peggy were applauded for their pioneer successes, successes which have resulted in a strong and healthy Canadian Shuffleboard Organization. In Canada, shuffleboard is most often played during the summer on the floor of an arena while in Florida it is played on dedicated concrete courts. Wherever it is played, Shuffleboard offers the opportunity for exercise, competition and great social interaction ~~ why not determine if shuffleboard exists in your community.
Hi Stan: The Stoney Creek News arrived today with the picture and article you sent them, plus mention of Winona Seniors play and Ron Place. Jack was pleased as was I to see anything to promote our favourite game. Thank you so much. I know you will have a marvelous time at Lakeside. We participated there many times in the summer in our “shuffling days”. Good luck to you all!
