We Share With You Just a Little about David and Glenna Earle: (2016 Article) David and Glenna began shuffling about 15 years ago and were fortunate enough to live in a park where an excellent instructing Pro, Marshall Leigh, took both under his wing. David was hooked in a very short time but Glenna dabbled in many other activities and was slower to get started. Glenna won the coveted GOLDEN CUE, emblematic of 1st place in the 32nd ISA World Singles. Pic is of Jim Allen presenting the Golden Cue.
