don't know what you've got 'til it's gone..by
IN: I barely knew Jim Manders. I talked to him on the
phone back in January when I heard about The Board Talk closing.
I exchanged email with him several times regarding his baby, Lagging4s,
and we shared tournament information back and forth for publication.
We were exchanging email the weekend of his death to discuss an
article idea I had and I asked him when would be a good time to
call him. He told me that he could no longer talk. Even then I
didn't realize how ill he must have been even though I had a grandfather
die of throat cancer. You always think that "now-a-days"
they can fix such things.
Since then I've read the articles from his local papers, people
he used to work with and the like. People had strong feelings
about Jim Manders when he was alive and continue to have strong
feelings for him in death. I'm sorry I missed my chance to know
made an impression on people, affected peoples lives and he will
be missed. To quote from the article written by Michael Dashiell
of the Sequim Gazette:
job, Jim. Nice work.
Mind like a steel trap..
Rusty and illegal in 37 states.
Saying goodbye to one of our own

Approximately 35 different people from Indiana, Ohio and Michigan

Tavern Amateur 1.5>
Indiana has never had much in the area of amateur and/or division
II tournaments until Journey's End had one March
26-27th, 2004. (to the best of my knowledge)
As an unrated player, I look forward to more amateur events
and combo events to encourage new players to start playing
and traveling to tournaments and larger events over all. Perhaps
Division II play will even be included in the state tournament
format someday soon!
received my copy of the Pacific Coast Shuffleboard News
this past week and shared it with the folks at the tournament
I attended. Good job guys!
