”Looking Back” from Stan McCormack

Coldwater Club president Carol Archer invited Stan to speak at last evening’s banquet. It was a pleasure to see him once again, and hear him speak. He forwarded the following email to me as follows:
”We had 60 Amateur Shufflers participating to-day at COLDWATER, 2019 07 23, and that is fantastic!!! It is evident that the strong leadership of the Coldwater Club continues!!

I regret that I did not compliment the Amateurs to-day in my brief remarks??
I believe it is IMPORTANT, even essential, that each of us, the “modern day Presidents” if you will, relate stories such as this for THEIR AREA. >> e.g. the FERGUS beginning; Blackstock, and OTHERS!!
ONE can often collect information from https://theshuffler.net/ Simply type in a key word or words, in the rectangle in the upper right of the opening page, and then click SEARCH.
Below I have A) Inserted links to Coldwater articles >>
AND B)given you links to actual articles from my computer > i.e. the two sources for info.
Stan (Perhaps Carol may, if she has not already, display this info in a friendly manner in the COLDWATER CLUB.)
Hopefully, Bill Boyes will see fit to post this, and similar articles, on the CNSA Site.
