New Rules in the time of Covid 19

Saturday, June 6, 2020

Hello Club Members,
It has been too long. I miss seeing you all on the terrains. We are currently in phase 2 which only allows gathers of 5 people and does not allow for gathering for sporting events. We are hoping to move into phase 3 in a few weeks. When that happens we should be able to resume play. I know many of you are chomping at the bit to play again. That being said I received a rather nasty email after my last message to the club about not playing and canceling some tournaments.

Hello Club Members,
Another great tourney. We had many teams over from Portland and a few from Seattle.  I am always impressed with the increase in our clubs level of play. Van and I will be working on a training program so we can be even more competitive in the future.

Next year we will try to spread these big tourneys out more evenly.
Now for the winners of the tournament.
1st place Pierre and Philippe Agnesse
2nd place Barbara Kongsbak and Pierre Brun
