The LRTTC monthly tournament for May 2016 was held on Saturday May 21 in honor of "Jeff Pratt Graduates!" After years of hard work, Jeff received his bachelor's degree in Biology from UALR. We also had two other recent graduates participate in the tournament: Shelby Barone just graduated from high school and his dad Scott Barone graduated in December from Southern Illinois University. Congratulations to the Graduates!
This tournament saw one of the highest turnouts in recent months with 14 players. The field of players was split into 3 groups of 5, 5 and 4 players. Each group was a round robin to determine the winner of the group. We didn't have time for a second round, so this tournament had 3 champions.
The standings of each group are listed below. Congratulations to the winners and to everyone who helped make this tournament a really fun event.
