LIPKIN AWARD" is described by John McDermott
of The Shuffleboard Federation, as follows:
"Regarding the Sol Lipkin award, we consider
it the highest honor we can award someone.
We do not accept nominations, and it is given less
than annually, making it even more special."
Visit the Shuffleboard Federation Website.
