Winter 2011-2012 so far has not seemed much like a winter. Nevertheless, in honor of the Winter Carnival, we had a nice dusting of snow on Saturday.
We also had a fine dusting of results throughout the weekend!
Congratulations to the Beckmans, Terry and Kathy, who topped the masterpoint winners. Their over 30 point total edged out Joe Rice, Linda Webb and Rick Ekstrum (3rd and 4th/5th) by less than 4 masterpoints. All ACBL results for the tournament can be viewed here.
Other highlights were our new champion of the Junior USBF Team #2, Ben Kristensen, competing with his dad, Curt. And, we were fortunate that ACBL President and District 14 Director Sharon Anderson had returned from Bermuda to be able to compete in Sunday's Swiss.
Our thanks to Mike Flader and Gregg Van Dyke for their directing efforts, and to our tournament chairman, Gus Doty, for all his fine planning and execution. As always, a big "thank you," too, to the volunteers who made this year's Winter Carnival a success!
