To-day at the Tournament of Champions in Clearwater, FL the MVPerson Award was awarded to Colleen Austin. Colleen is hugely active in the support of Shuffleboard Activities, more so than any other living person!! I kid you not!! To see just a few of them, click: https://theshuffler.net/2012/11/12/an-extremley-talented-person/ http://photopeach.com/album/luuc6n
Colleen was among the first to volunteer to support the Celebration of 100 Years in Florida!! She designed our Anniversary Banner; she designed our Calendar; she designed the MVPin itself!! And while she was doing all of this, she was as creative and supportive of her own District as well as special FSA events such as the Banquet and the Tournament of Champions and the Masters! Not only is she an Anniversary Committee Member, she also is one of the Distributors, constantly offering the many promotional items to shufflers and others, in her District. Most of us get tired just thinking about all of the things she does so absolutely well. Truly shufflers, she is remarkable.
OH! Almost forgot to tell you; Colleen earned a Silver Medal in the 2011-2012 Roll of Champions AND placed 1st in the prestigious FSA Masters in March of 2012, and to-day, March 25th 2013 she enters the TOC in a very tight race to compete in the 2013 MASTERS.
It is with a great deal of satisfaction that I present the MVPerson Award to Colleen Austin.
