Thanks again to all that drove a long ways to pull this tournament. The turnout exceeded our expectations and I hope it exceed all of yours as well. Our goal for the next tournament will be to improve our reffing and to complete the entire tournament (overalls included) in 3.5 hours. Had we run 2 tables it would have been accomplished this time around. Also, I will work with the venue to obtain sponsorship money to increase the CASH PRIZES if possible. Otherwise, we feel using all the entry fee’s for the prize money was well received by most and we’ll continue to use this format for the future (a lot less stress on my end thats for sure).

Special thanks to Scott Latella and Ray Darling for helping me run this event. I could not do this without you. Also for everybody who helped with the reffing- THANK YOU!!!

I hope everybody had a great time. It was an action packed day with some amazing matches. I was especially surprised with the womens turnout (6 entries, not bad) and the competitiveness in that division.

Thank you all again for coming to our event. The owner of the venue wanted everybody to know how grateful he was for all of us.
