Lindsay, Ontario, Friday May 17, 2019 – The CNSA presented a commemorative Plaque to honour Stan McCormack for his outstanding contributions to the sport of Shuffleboard. It was a special recognition award for Stan’s many years of support and dedication to Shuffleboard.
Stan has done so much for shuffleboard as a leader and organizer, as well as a tireless promoter and reporting over the years. Now recently retired from his shuffler’s blog, Stan will be greatly missed by Canadians, Americans and the International Shuffleboard World.
M/C of this event was CNSA Past-president Gary Pipher. Attending were ISA President and CNSA Past-president Myrna Bilton, OSA Past-president Rendall Bilton, CNSA President Jim Corbeil, OSA Tournament Director Marlene Corbeil, Barb Pipher, CNSA Past-president Max Tate, Ruth Tate, CNSA/OSA Hall-Of-Famers Lorraine and Bill Pollock, and Neil and Marylou Simpson,
Presentations to Stan (Copies attached) were made by Gary Pipher and Jim Corbeil.
A big thank you to all who attended the presentation and Adelaide Place in Lindsay for hosting.

When I first heard about Stan McCormack retiring from his Shufflers Blog, I contacted him and told him it was a sad time for Shuffleboard. I know we all have to step back as we age and let the younger generation take over. But to see Stan passing on the reins is quite a shock, not only to me but to all the Shuffleboard world.
Stan reported every aspect of shuffleboard from the smallest mingle single tournament to the ISA world Championship. If a new community or Club started a shuffleboard program he would report on it . Not only would he report the new program but he would send the as much information as possible to the persons in charge so they could get their program off on the right foot. Stan worked to all hours getting out information on the happenings around the shuffleboard world.
A few years ago a very close friend of Stans, Max Tate, told me Stan McCormack has done more for shuffleboard than anyone in the sports industry. No truer words were ever spoken.
Many people in the shuffleboard world have no idea that Stan is a very accomplished shuffleboard player. I know I do, he and his good friend Max, put Glen Peltier and myself into second place at a CNSA national tournament in Woodstock.
Stan you will be missed but not forgotten.
Good luck to you my friend in your new adventure.
Jim Corbeil, President Canadian National Shuffleboard Association.

It is a simple ‘Thank You’ that I give for all you have done to promote shuffling worldwide.
You made me feel that each of our entries posted was the most important entry in the shuffling world.
I’m not surprised to hear that to maintain the meaningful website it will require three younger people’s energy to replicate it – in saying ‘so long’ to you we wish the next generation well in maintaining an information source that was second to none!
Seventeen years is a wonderful contribution Stan – I hope you continue to enjoy and find time to play the wonderful game you promoted through your years!
Stay out of the Kitchen!

An unequalled force in promoting shuffleboard is retiring! The following was copied from Stan McCormack’s “theshuffler” website. We wish him well and thank him for his tremendous and unequalled contribution to the sport we love.
“Stan Leaves; Kerry, Erik, and Josh Take Over!
Effective tonight at midnight, http://theshuffler.net will be maintained/operated/managed by 3 YOUNG FLORIDIAN SHUFFLERS!!!
If you have a Story, an Article, Results of any kind, please DO NOT send to Stan. PLEASE SEND ALL SHUFFLEBOARD INFORMATION, that is every State in the USA; Canada; Japan; Australia; Brazil; Norway; England and Continental Europe TO email@example.com
One of the first things the “3 YOUNG FLORIDIAN SHUFFLERS will do, is introduce themselves. I know you will share my view that they will do a FINE JOB in promoting the sport we all LOVE SO MUCH!!
I have enjoyed bringing Shuffleboard information to you for the past 17 Years. It is time I moved on and let others take the helm.

The Coldwater shuffleboard club have asked to change the date of their CNSA Tournament from July 30 – Aug 1 to July 23-25th 2019. They were going to host the IP and had to move the tournament forward, but now the IP is in Ingersoll they would like to move it back to the earlier date. This will keep a two week span between Coldwater and Blenheim. This should work out better for both tournaments.
