The anti-rain dances worked, and we were blessed with a gorgeous day and spectacular dinking! Over 100 people participated in the challenge and I met some new players at our latest tournament, cannot wish for better than that!
Thank you to the players that stepped-up, last minute to cover for several players that were sick. Also, MANY thanks to Sherry Halphen and Ken Schneiderman who jumped in during the middle of the tournament to keep us going. Love the team work!
Of course, none of these tournaments would be such a great success without the volunteers that help. I could NOT do this without you! The wonderful court monitors and runners …. Gina Resch, Becky Nesta, Matt Halphen, Mary Lou Terlesky, Sally Grasso, Debbie Rezzolla, Kevin and Jannetje McManus, Rod and Sherry Baldwin, Tom Losk and anyone else I missed, several people jumped into help! Rod Baldwin and Bob Grueser for taping the kitchen lines.
Stan Burzacki, our maintenance man extraordinaire and tournament go to guy. He lugs ALL the stuff there and BACK to the shed on the south side. Stuck it out with me all day, that’s a task in itself!
And, my data girls, who talked me off the ledge several times during the day - Jenn Timpe and Colleen Rozeman, Ladies – you were awesome! Big thank you to Lisa Robinson for the embroidered towels she did for our silver medalists!
Now to what you all want to know, the winners of our Dink Challenge, some of the results were sooo close, and a point or two made the difference. Incredible competition amongst our players.
Until the next one!
