THE BROWN REPORT:
Pic above left is The Shuffler’s Induction into the CD FSA Hall of Fame. Pic above right is of The Shuffler’s Induction into the ISA Hall of Fame in Australia in 2008. The “guy who makes it all possible”, Alf Primeau, was unable to be present at either. From left to right: Wilbur Estes, deceased; Earl Ball, alive and well; Stan McCormack; and Larry Brown, one half of The Brown Report!!
Larry Brown Speaks: “One of the highlights of the day happened before the disks started flying. ISA Presidents Gus Bondi and Earl Ball honored two members of the Central District who one might say have become world famous. They are Alf Primeau and Stan McCormack of The Shuffler. At the ISA World Team Championship held this past September in Australia’s Gold Coast, The Shuffler was inducted into the ISA Hall of Fame. Stan & Lois McCormack, who captained the Canadian teams, accepted the ISA plaque at the banquet in Australia.
Alf Primeau, who is the founder and web master and as Stan has often said, “The brains behind The Shuffler”, received his very attractive HOF Pin and plaque today in front of his Central District friends. As anyone who has ever played the game knows, The Shuffler has had, and continues to have a significant impact on the sport worldwide. The Shuffler is open for anyone to express his opinion; offer a suggestion; or just gather information. (Also see page 2 below)
What a wonderful tool Stan & Alf have provided shufflers all over the world. The honor of the ISA Hall of Fame is well deserved. This is the second Hall of Fame honor for The Shuffler as the web site was inducted into the Central District Hall of Fame in 2007. Congratulations Stan & Alf. Larry & Ruth Brown.
SHUFFLERS NOTE: Thanks for that Larry and Ruth; thanks for that ISA Presidents and Board; thanks for that all shufflers everywhere. Your support is appreciated. Stan and Alf.
