Induction of Jackie Tucker into the Bowls USA Hall of Fame

The Southeast Division’s Jackie Tucker has been inducted into the Bowls USA Hall of Fame.  This honor is awarded to individuals who have exemplified superior contributions to the sport of Lawn Bowls on and off the green at the International, National, Division, and Club levels.

Jackie’s accomplishments are many.  Nationally, Jackie has won Gold in Singles, Gold in Pairs and Silver in Singles twice.  Currently she serves as a Selector for Team USA and has run a Developmental Camp for the past 10 years.  She received the Bowls USA President’s Award in 2016 and 2020.  Internationally, she was a member of Team USA from 2006 – 2010 playing in the North American Challenge (Canada vs. US) and in the Asia Pacific Games in Malaysia.  She has served as Co-Head Coach for the Scotland Matches in California and as Assistant Coach of Team USA in the Asia Pacific Games.  At Pinehurst, Jackie has won the Club Singles Championship twice, been the PLBC Club President five times and has served as a lawn bowls trainer from 2012 to the present.

In the presence of family, friends, and neighbors, lawn bowlers and golfers, and representatives from Pinehurst Country Club, Jackie was awarded her Bowls USA Hall of Fame plaque and pin.  Congratulations, Jackie!

Newly minted Southeast Division Hall of Fame Inducts Six Bowlers

The Southeast Hall of Fame is the highest honor the Division can bestow on its members. The annual award recognizes individuals for their superior competitive achievements at the Division and National level, and/or exceptional contributions to the Division through service on boards, committees, and volunteerism. Nominations come from the clubs, and a HoF Committee evaluates applications. Elections are conducted by the SED Board.

In the inaugural year of the Southeast Hall of Fame, six bowlers met the standard for selection and were inducted in March 2022 at the Men’s and Women’s Southeast Open tournaments. Congratulations to the six bowlers inducted in the inaugural HoF class. Visit the SED HoF page.

Shown above, Mike Maneilly (center) presented with the SED HoF Plaque by Randy Woods (left) and SED Vice President, Steve Nelson at Mount Dora. Barb Roller, Beth Forbes and Jeanne McLaughlin receive their plaques at Sun City Center. Harold Esch and Gene Goodwin were also inducted posthumously.
