    The Wildwood Chronicles, as presented by Debra Stanley-Lapic NMC '73

    Debra Stanley-Lapic the National Marbles Champion of 1973 hasn't missed a national tournament in 37 years. She has a wealth of information, not to mention photos, which she'll share if there is interest. Here is the first installment ... from this year's tournament ... a very special event!

    I have the privilege of posting this time while the Lapic family is traveling, celebrating and unwinding! But Debra will be back to field your questions if you have any.

    Thank you, Debra! The pix and captions are classic!









    National Finals.....Whitney Lapic, Berks County, PA and Penelope Bauer, Allegheny County, PA





    The traditional kiss





    2009 National Marble Champions....Ricky Brode, Cumberland, MD and Whitney Lapic, Berks County, PA

    The most adorable prequel ... Whitney was destined to be a National Marbles Champion ....








    Whitney practicing her winning moment.....12 years before it was needed,





    Whitney's first National Marbles Tournament, just learning to shoot.





    Trying to take her first shot at 9 months..........those are itty bitty knee pads!!

    That's so cool.

    It's in her blood, for sure.

    Thanks for sharing the pics Steph!

    I've had a mind to find out more about how I can sponsor the tournament, or otherwise get involved, but every year it sneaks up on me and it's over before I know it.

    Does anyone here attend? The fsasct that it happens during the workweek has been a problem for me...don't any of the people involved have to work? If it was at least partly on a weekend, it'd help. Me anyway. And I suspect there'd be others who'd be involved, but can't miss school or work. June 26th was the last day of school in NYC (my wife is a teacher.)

    Is there an "official" site where I can go to get some questions answered?

    If anyone sees this who can help me find out more, please email me at "marbles AT landofmarbles DOT com" (I'm "hiding" my real email address from bots - to email me, run all those words together with no spacing, and replace "AT" with "@" and "DOT" with "."

    Maybe I can get involved somehow next year, before it sneaks up on me again!
