As current President of the USA NSA, it is my pleasure to nominate MR. STAN MCCORMACK for the USA NSA Hall of Fame, Special Award category from the East. (Sandi Quinn Speaking.)
Stan has been our window to worldwide, nationwide & statewide shuffleboard events since his first article for ‘theshuffler.org’ web site in 2002. Because of his desire to promote the game, he began reporting shuffleboard activity on this web site which was more widely read than any single shuffleboard web site. From that time, and until ‘theshuffler.org’ was ended May 31, 2010, Stan’s reporting on USA NSA and other shuffleboard events was continual, concise and complete with facts, photos and films. When ‘theshuffler.org’ was ended, it had received over 250,000 hits.
Stan’s BLOG, theshuffler.net, was launched by Stan in June of 2012 where he posts, on average, two articles per day. As of November 2015 twenty-five hundred articles have been prepared and posted by Stan. Stan’s following is worldwide and his articles are read by more shufflers than any other web source.
Stan is also responsible for one of the National tournaments on our schedule every year. In 2004 Stan, then President of Avon Park, spent many hours negotiating the inception of the Amateur National M/D at Avon Park with Don Norris, then President of the USA NSA. The first one was held that year and continues to this day. It has been a positive and successful tournament and is one of only two Amateur National M/D held each year.
The work Stan has done as Chairman of the 100th Anniversary of FL Shuffleboard Committee has made a positive and influential impact on shuffleboard both statewide and nationally.
Stan McCormack is more than worthy of receiving a USA NSA Hall of Fame Special Award. I hope you will agree and give this nomination positive consideration and will vote ‘Yes’ for him. Thank you!
