Due to a last minute emergency cancellation, instead of the sanctioned event we held our regularly monthly tournament with an 8 player, 2 group round robin with the top 2 advancing to the Division A semifinals and the bottom 2 advancing to Division B semifinals.
In Division A, Jeff Pratt took 4th place, Kedar Jambhekar 3rd place, Don Jackson 2nd place, and Mike Lauro 1st place.
In Division B, Mark Taylor's emotional exhaustion led to his default to Charlie Brooks for 3rd place. Jim Miller took 1st place by defeating Mohan Ready in the final.
After the singles tournament ended, a number of players teamed up for several competitive and fun doubles matches. We also managed to get some really good group photos to commemorate the festivities of the day.
LRTTC offers congratulations and thanks to everyone who showed up today to support the club even though the sanctioned event was postponed.
