Stephen Horwich

We regret to inform you of the passing of Mr. Stephen Horwich yesterday due to his long illness.  He became NRAD Hall of Fame inductee on May 15, 2010 as a statistician. Mr. Stewie Gerlis and Jim Fleming shared this sad news. Further details will be furnished as they become available to us. May his soul rest in perfect peace. 

Obituary by Jim Fleming

Steve was born in Chicago in Dec 19, 1953 and passed away in May 4, 2013.  Steve parents were deceased years ago and Steve has no brother or sister.  I knew Steve since 1978 and we became friends from the playing racquetball days. In 1984, Steve contacted and invited a Professional racquetball player, Marty Hogan to participate the inauguration ribbon cutting for the opening ceremony for the 1st National Racquetball Tournament for the Deaf (NRAD) and accepted. 

Steve and I were Chairpersons for four NRAD Annual Championships in Chicago, IL. Steve got inducted in the Hall of Fame in our 25th Anniversary May 2010. Without Steve there will be no NRAD because he saved all the records, documents, and tournament sites information for NRAD player as a statistician for many years.  NRAD will miss you and NRAD will not fail. 

Thank you Steve for being my colleague to work with you for NRAD all the years!

2013 NRAD Championships

I regret to inform you that the 2013 NRAD Championships scheduled for April 26-28, 2013 in Charlotte, NC is cancelled due to very low number of registered participants.  All registered participants are encouraged to contact Bill Milbach and Mark Heflin for refunds.

 I would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere thanks to all who took the time to email us their feedback on whether to proceed or cancel the tournament, given the low number of registered participants.  For those who registered and looked forward to playing, we apologize for the inconvenience caused.

We'll choose a new venue to host the next annual championships tournament, and announce the same in due time.  Please feel free to make suggestions via this medium.

Thanks and enjoy the rest of your racquetball season.

 ..... please don't SKIP it!

We look forward to seeing you soon!
