We had only 13 players entered and were only able to qualify two for the National Championships to be held in Tuscon, AZ in May. First Place went to Jesus Quinonez who played a great tournament. Second Place finish went to Mark Sullivan who also played well, after not being active for the last year. Congratulations to both Players who will represent all of us in the Pacific Northwest in the Nationals!
There were two high runs awards in the prelims, Monty Rodriguez had an 8 and Jesus Quinonez ran a 7! The prelims were played to 30 points and the finals were played to 25 points to save time on Sunday.
Thanks go to Ed Brasfield, Ralph Miller, Tom Ducharme, and Mac McInroy for their hard work and making the experience enjoyable to all. Special thanks to Mark St Angelo for coming all the way from New Mexico!
