Commander E. M. Tellefson

Commander E. M. Tellefson was known as the “The grand old man of stone skipping” and was a legendary ambassador of the sport. His 17-skip stone at Point Aux Pins in 1932 stood unchallenged for 25 years and was the inspiration for the founding of the Mackinac Island Stone Skipping and Gerplunking Club in 1969. The commander opened the Mackinac Island 4th of July Stone Skipping Open Tournament annually with his traditional and now famous cry: “Let he who is without Frisbee cast the first stone.” The Commander was an inaugural inductee into the Hall of Fame in 2011.
