THE SHUFFLER would like to thank Ken Trimble for this info.2006 11 05.
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!!
Each 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.
