Shuffleboard; The Catalyst for Making Long-lasting Friendships!

It was in 2004, yes, 9 years ago that a group of us got together to celebrate the birthday of Stan Quinn!!  He will add one more year to his adventure this Friday, September 06th!!  I OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAam now going to invite you to return to that “2004 birthday celebration” arranged by Sandi, Stan’s wife.  WE have joined celebrations of Stan’s anniversary since then, 2009 in North Carolina, and look forward to the BIG 75th!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERADuring the summer of 2013 the Quinns, playing together, had another satisfying year of Shuffling, taking 1st in the Championship event of the Mixed Doubles at Greenville Ohio, meeting some excellent opponents along the way. Stan and Sandi are both members of the TX Shuffleboard HOF; Stan was inducted in 2011, Sandi in 2008. (Pic on your left) To expand all pix, click on once)

During the US Nationals at Lakeside, Sandi stood in for President Gus Bondi, absent due to his injury. We hear she did well at the HOF Banquet and the National Meeting.

I NOW offer a re-read of the BIRTHDAY we shared with them in 2004.



Sandi Quinn, most travelled reporter for THE SHUFFLER, not only has an ability to make her reports interesting; she has panache when it comes to hosting a party ~~ especially when that party is to celebrate the birthday of husband Stan!!  On Monday evening a group of us got together for dinner at FATZ a first class eating establishment, for those who may not know.

We discovered almost at the outset, that one could purchase a full bottle of wine for the price of two glasses!!  FATZ’ policy; any wine not drank at the end of the evening will be bottled and may be taken with you ~~ it was not necessary to invoke their policy!! The wine and the tasty food made for good conversation between and among the many friends gathered to help Stan as he officially enters the age category of a Senior!

At the appropriate time the staff came to the table, led us all in a rousing version of HappyOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Birthday, and then left Stan with the wonderful dessert.  It was such a generous helping that Stan passed it around the entire table ~~ no one could resist!!  AND when it returned there was still a bit left.  All had a great time.  The get-together demonstrated that we all can continue to have good fun, to enjoy a party AND, most everyone felt “real good” the next day!!!  (Others ended up in the consolation event!!)  It was a great event!  All of us wish Stan a very Happy Birthday.
