Tournament Recap

Our Fall KickOff went off GREAT, We ended up with 38 players and 9 different divisions. I know that 38 does not sound that good to a lot of folks but I find it very encouraging since this was the first tournament ever played in Alaska for about 30% of that 38 and that there were a lot of our REGULARS not available not to mention there is still no snow on the ground outside yet!. All you folks that have been talking up our sport to everyone deserve a BIG PAT on the backs. A Big Welcome to all of you first timers we look forward to seeing you all again at our next event.

Jimmy Stewart – How GREAT was it to see Jimmy Stewart back on the court after 2 long years of countless surgeries after an explosion and fire at his cabin. GOD has a special plan for this MAN. Welcome back, Jimmy!!
