Hard to believe it's been 5 years since
that day. I know exactly where I was. I had been laid off
from Macromedia for the summer and just starting to get
concerned about finding a job. I was watching the Today
Show when they switched to the, at that time, small story,
of a plane running into a building. I was watching as the
second plane hit and the story quickly changed from a tragic
accident story to an attack story. I remember calling my
mom and telling her to turn on the news and then hanging
up on her. I watched as people jumped to their
deaths. I remember almost going to the school
and getting my kids and bringing them home. I remember watching
as planes were grounded all over the world. I remember watching
as the towers came down.
And now, 5 years later? I still remember.
Mid-August Wrap-up has been posted to the newsletter
page. It's only 6 pages, only 5 events covered. The Labor
Day Weekend tournaments will be covered in a later issue.
I'm aiming to stay on top of things considering Reno is less
than 50 days away!!!!
I will be putting together a condensed Reno 2005 Wrap-Up in
the coming weeks that will be available before October 27th
and copies will be available "at the door" in Reno
SHUFFLEBOARD MOVIE CLIPS
I'm adding a new section on eshuffleboard.com for movie clips.
Right now I just have the two, the Billy Mays clip and a new
1 minute clip from Jim Martin called, "Combo, Combo,
Combo". It has to be seen to be believed.
If you have video you would like to share, either send me
a clip that you have prepared, or drop a CD in the mail and
I'll cut out any clip that you want. As more clips are added
the format of this page may change. The link to this page
is in the "Main Pages" drop down box on the far
right of the home page of eshuffleboard.com
Board Talk Update
Work scanning the back Board Talk issues continues sporadically.
I have added about 10 issues this weekend. So far issues
have been provided by Jo Bates, Mike Koontz and Glen and
Jeri Imgram. Once all those are scanned and returned I
have a line on all the issues from the 80's and all the
rest of the 90's.
And lastly, the complete results from the Jim Long
Weekend weekend will not be posted until some time this
coming weekend. Jeri Ingram is getting a new computer
and will email them or will bring the sheets up when
she heads to Bourbon for the Amateur Tournament at Journey's
