You don't know what you've got 'til it's gone..by Ann Harrell

Bourbon, 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 him better.

He 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:

Good job, Jim. Nice work.

Summitville, IN

Glenn and Jeri Ingram hosted an Amateur tournament this weekend at their new GI's Town Tavern for players rated 1.5 and above. Approximately 35 different people from Indiana, Ohio and Michigan participated in this 3 day event.

June 17-19 GI's Town 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!


I 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!
