Due to the chilly weather and 70% chance of rain in the afternoon we decided to warm up our players by eating indoors. We are sorry that we have difficulty announcing our winners & prizes due to room separation.
Thank you to our Chair Shelby Davidson and her awesome committee including Karen Jordan, Barb Marugame, and Kathy Lum for the incredible job they did putting on the tournament.
