In a time when there are so many truly great players, it is fitting that John McDermott joins the ranks of the best to ever play the game.

John has taken shuffleboard into the big time... and for that and all his other contributions to the game, his induction is overdue. The thing I like about John is that he's real approachable when it comes to suggestions, or questions or whatever, and even on the dumbest questions he'll take time and give you a good answer or response, (even though you might need to be smacked in the head instead for asking such a dumb question) so to you John, congrats, and hope you keep up the excellent job of promoting and supporting our game for many years to come.

John is a great player and a great promoter. He has donated 3 sets of shuffleboard weights to the Evergreen Shuffleboard Association, in Washington, for many years. His support has been greatly appreciated. John runs a great tournament in Reno and each year it gets better and better. We first met John when he made a road trip to Washington. That was many years ago. He and Darroll played money games against Jim Foran and Gary George at Larry and Ray
