First Place in the Black Division of the Western Team Tournament in 2006 was the ARIZONA INLANDERS.  Jessie Dunlop has captained the Inlanders for 3 years and placed 1st or 2nd in each year!!

John Rosenkrans & Lee of M&SEach Inlanders Player received a beautiful trophy from M&S SPORTING GOODS of Mesa. Our regular readers will recall that M&S were one of 3 Shuffleboard Organizations to sponsor the Orchestra for the Cruise taken by ISA (International Shuffleboard Assn) players in August of 2007. See John Rosenkrans 2nd pic in the margin.
