It was with pleasure that I accepted the duties of president of the Arizona Shuffleboard Association at our spring meeting. I thank all the former and current executive at the State, District and Club levels for their contributions in promoting shuffleboard throughout Arizona. Please take the time to thank the most important people in your park – the volunteers.

This past season three new individuals were elected to the Arizona Shuffleboard Association Hall of Fame. Dale Monday, District I, was elected in the special category. In the player category, Nancy Chaffin of District III and Peter Palko of District II were elected. The Ambassador’s award was presented by District II to Dick Davis. Congratulations to each of these deserving recipients.

We also congratulate the winners of the ASA state playoffs:

ASA Split Singles Champions – Men - Dave Crucq (District IV); and Ladies - Gwen Gienger (District V), Consolation - Men - Duane Bradow (District I) and Ladies - Cheryl McNeely (District IV).

ASA Mixed Doubles Champions – Wanda Venenga and Bill Storck (District I) Consolation winners - Joanne and Brian Korotash (District IV).

ASA League Championship - Palm Gardens Geezers from District I.
I commend those league teams that demonstrated a commitment to gender balance.

I hope everyone has an enjoyable summer and I look forward to our return next fall and another season of shuffleboard.
