Sandi Quinn Speaks: Stan & I met John & Marylin Barnett many years ago on an inaugural to Denmark & Norway. At that time John & Marylin along with Sam & Marsha Allen were very iinvolved and very active in their promotion of shuffleboard nation wide and world wide. We were very impressed with John’s enthusiasm for getting more countries to join the ISA. A very friendly gentleman who was always smiling and made us feel we’d known each other all our lives. It was a very wonderful trip with the Barnetts and the Allens at the helm. Shuffleboard has lost one of it’s all-time biggest supporters, and there will never be another like Mr. John Barnett. Stan & I, along with the USA NSA, send Marylin our sincere condolences and pray God’s care will be with her at this time and always.
President, USA NSA
