We Tell You Something About Our Tournament Director, Mr. Glenn Monroe.

Glenn Monroe is originally from the small town of Caledonia, located in western Michigan, south of Grand Rapids. He moved to Detroit in 1966 to study at Wayne State University. He joined the Detroit Police Department in 1970 and retired from there in 1996.

Glenn and Donna Monroe.
  • After two years with the University of Detroit-Mercy, where
    he served as the Deputy Director of Public Safety, he moved to
    Florida with his wife, Donna. Soon thereafter, he began playing
    shuffleboard at the Lakeland Shuffleboard Club. He spent four
    years as the club’s president, during which time he was also
    trained as a tournament director. He subsequently served eight
    years on the board of the Florida Shuffleboard Association’s
    Central District (two years as president). In 2008, he was
    appointed to the post of F.S.A. State Tournament Director, a post that he continues to proudly hold.
    When meetings of the FSA need rulings and interpretations, he is the GO TO guy and he does it in a calm and thoughtful manner. He quite simply is shuffleboard’s King Solomon.
    Glenn also serves as Director of Shuffleboard for the Florida Sports Foundation and National
    Tournament Director for the U.S. National Shuffleboard Association. He has directed seven
    International tournaments: United States (2009, 2013, 2015, 2016), Germany (2010); Canada (2011) and Brazil (2017.)
    Glenn was elected to the Central District Hall of Fame in 2010, the International Shuffleboard
    Association Hall of Fame in 2013, and the Florida Shuffleboard Assn. Hall of Fame in 2015. On the occasion of being awarded the 100th Anniversary Committee Most Valuable Person Pin, it was pointed out that Glenn had served inter alia, 4 terms as president of the Lakeland Club; 2 terms as Central District President; webmaster for the Central District AND Florida State; demanding positions which he still holds. Unbeknown to many, Glenn serves as the Event Manager for Polk County Senior Games, a significant personal commitment that Glenn has taken on since 2006. Glenn devoted considerable time in developing a Player Package to explain to new players, what they could expect when they entered a tournament. The package was well received in some Districts of the FSA. In his role as State TD, Glenn is always willing to provide written explanations to questions of concern. He has been known to show up at key events even though he is not directing, a practice found to be favorable to participants,
    especially Amateurs.
    Glenn has a penchant for motorcycles and sporty cars; it is hard to predict the vehicle in which he will arrive at any given tournament?? Space does not permit me to include pix!! Glenn has a pleasant and attractive wife Donna, and although we seldom see her, we do know she has her own career.
    Glenn has experienced health problems but his courage and determination have prevented these from interfering with his great desire to serve his fellow shufflers.
    Thank You Glenn Monroe for providing professional Service to the Shuffleboard World.
    Stan McCormack.

    It seems that someone always comes along in the time of need. It is usually for a short time. Well it just so happens we have needed Glenn for a long time and we need him forever if possible. Glenn has kept this train on the right track.
