A new deck of Bicycle cards is arranged sans jokers as follows: A-K hearts, A-K clubs, K-A diamonds, K-A spades. (This could use verification.)
After the manipulations have been performed, the cards should be arranged as follows (* means face-down):
*9S 9D *5S 7H 9H *AH 9C AC 3S *2C *8S *AS *7D *QH
If you translate cards to letters using "A-K face-up -> A-M, A-K face-down -> N-Z" the cards spell out the answer, VIRGINIA COUNTY.
