While shuffling in the St Petes CAN-AM CHALLENGE in 2007, a young woman approached me, asked me if I was Stanistheman and began to tell me how much she enjoyed THE SHUFFLER. She explained that her and her husband are “long term amateurs out of Pinellas Park” ~~ but get this!! They have attended every State Masters for 15 years ~~ and have already made plans to do so again in 2007. (What She did not tall me at that time was that both of us had been on the Inaugural to Ireland in 2000.)
She continued to explain that even when home in Massachusetts during the summer, each and every morning she checked the Site!! (The Shuffler) Her name; Mrs. Robert Mitchell, and yes, I did take her pic!!
It is this kind of loyalty by our users that makes the many hours spent by Alf and I worthwhile. Thanks so much to the Mitchells; thanks so much to all our users!!

Below are a couple of pix of the Ireland Inaugural in the year 2000. Dorothy Spillman was a prime organizer of the Inaugural, along with John Barnett and Sam Allen. Click: shuffling-in-ireland-by-dorothy-up Stan McCormack writing on 2017 01 06.
