Some interesting facts:
A pair of nonagenarians won 3rd place consolation, namely Louise Bryant (90) and Jim Peterson (94)!
A "rookie" (playing less than a year) was on the team that won 4th place consolation, Dora Olea - impressive.
Kathy Brennan, the President of the USA National Shuffleboard Assoc. has a goal of attending all the national tournaments, 20 so far, and using her own money!
Marolyn Davidson was awarded the USA-NSA championship pin, but not Jay since he had won 3 times before (it is a one-time award)
Jay pinned it on first time championship winner Marolyn
