** Tournament Drawsheets **
(current through all Final matches)

We had to combine Men's  A's with B's and with only two Women playing singles we had to place them in there also  just so they would have a division to play in.  There were only 2 Elite entries so they were mixed into the Men's Open. The tournament will end on Saturday instead of Sunday now.

The first tournament will be a fundraiser to benefit Jimmy Stewart who was involved in a gas explosion at his Talkeetna cabin and received Third degree burns that cover over 80% of his body.

Please use the following LINK: to sign-up to bring something to the potluck on Saturday, October 22nd for the Jimmy Stewart Benefit!

Tournament Update

We ended up with a total of 50 players who will be competing in 10 different divisions 5 of them Round Robin's. In order to accommodate all the folks with "Time Conflicts" along with all the players who are playing multiple events, we had to push the tournament through Sunday morning.  There are 100 matches scheduled to be played so that does not leave any wiggle room for rescheduling, Please show up early for your scheduled match to help matches run as close to on time or even early if possible. 

What a GREAT turnout for this Special tournament for our Friend Jimmy Stewart.
