Ron and Gwen Vogt formerly owned the Balloon Inn in Arvada, Colorado.
They were responsible for supporting and growing the game of shuffleboard
in the Denver area all through the 1990's. Ron and Gwen sponsored
teams and played every year in the N. American Championships in Reno
as well as hosting tournaments at the Balloon Inn. They also ran local
shuffleboard leagues. Anyone who played in Reno or Vegas in the 1990's
knows Ron and Gwen.
It is with great sadness we must tell you that Ron Vogt passed away
this morning at home from cancer. Ron was diagnosed only a month ago,
so this is quite a shock to all of his friends and family.
Ron and Gwen had moved to Wyoming after they sold the Balloon and
started a new business there and loved their new life. If you would
like to send condolences to Gwen, the address is P.O. Box 6741 Sheridan,
He will be remembered fondly and missed by all of the Colorado shuffleboard
Char Waugaman asked that we contact you to let others in the shuffleboard
family across the country know.
