Kedar wins Turkey Day 2014 Round Robin Tournament

Four LRTTC members were able to get temporarily evicted from their homes on Thanksgiving morning to compete in the first Turkey Day Round Robin:  Chinzo, Kedar, Mark and Mohan.

As Chinzo said “Try to pitch in (in the kitchen) and get put out”.

Thanks to Coach Lauro for making the facility available, Mohan for facilities management and Mark for tournament direction.

Kedar won decisively, sweeping the field and dropping only one game to Chinzo, who came in second.  Mohan played strong, finished third and had the most competitive match of the tournament, taking Chinzo to five games.  Mark was a strong fourth, and finished one and nine on games.

Congratulations to everyone who got to play on Thanksgiving!

See you Saturday!
