33rd ISA: We Give You UN Team Captains, GiGi and Rocky Briggs!! (Look Back Article!!)

Posted on 2014-01-31 

AMs Gigi & Rocky

It has just been announced that GiGi and Rocky Briggs will be the UN Team Captains for the 33rd ISA World Championship Event in Midland, Ontario!

This selection is made by the ISA President and reflects favourably on those chosen.  GiGi is a “Returning” UN Captain; for husband Rocky, it is his first time at Captaining a UN Team.    Both have extensive experience with Shuffleboard; more significantly, both have made significant contributions to Shuffleboard!!

Rocky is a Member of the ISA Hall of Fame and if you wish to read the justification for the selection, click here: 6 Rocky by Michael ISA HOF

    Creating the United Nations Teams was one of my proudest accomplishments. Prior to this any nation with less than the required number of competitors was merely eliminated from the ISA World Championship. Rocky and GiGi Briggs mentioned here truly exemplified the true spirit of shuffleboard. May they both Rest in Peace. You are not forgotten.

    Such a wonderful couple!! We are so blessed to have spent so much time with them in our early years of shuffling. Both were so dedicated to shuffleboard and worked tirelessly in their home state of CA, and also in AZ and Nationally. Haven’t talked to Gigi in awhile but I’m sure she is still teaching shuffleboard in CA if she is able. God Bless Her and God Bless Rockie’s soul ❤️!
