The Rock wins SUMMER, Betty Div 2, Shirley Div 3

Posted by Juraj on Sun June 03, 2018 at 21h35

Matt Larocque gave a very convincing performance to win the tournament, including a fine 654 game. Three players were at 9 wins and guaranteed 1st 2nd and 3rd as the others were at 7 wins going into the final. Huguette (9-4) lost to Matt (9-4) and Juraj (9-4) lost to Mimmo (7-6). This was an incredible tournament for Huguette, with a 1671 performance and a real shot at 1st place. Well done.

In Division Two, Betty came out on top with a full two games above the rest. 11-3 was the best record of the tournament. Terri finished strongly and squeezed into 2nd place after a rough start on Saturday afternoon. Maureen was third and had the second highest spread in the division. All those bingos add up! Doug and Linda played in Div 2 for the first time, and despite finishing low, each had 5 wins and in fact gained a few rating points.

Shirley Simon won Div C with 10-4 +480 and picked up some 40 rating points. Sylvia King (2nd) and Gladys Wilson (3rd) were three games ahead of the rest, and both deserve honorable mention.

Rod did the lion's share of the tournament administration - but Juraj and Randall helped with a few rounds. As players we take it for granted, but while we're having coffee, snacks and breaks, regaling a captive listener with our bingos, someone is typing in all the results, and printing out the standings and pairings. Thanks for taking such good care of us, Rod.

And we couldn't have these tournaments at such low cost, and return so much as prizes, were it not for Estelle and the wonderful space at Sierras of Heritage. We are indebted.

Wayne and Maureen were a huge help in this tournament - as always to bring all the equipment and keep tabs on what we are running out of. We need scoresheets, tally slips, challenge slips, printer toner, etc. It all takes time to manage. And while many of us sneak home straight after the event, they're loading and unloading the equipment, and making sure the trolley gets returned to the building. Not to mention showing up early for setup. It's really thankless work and is never mentioned. But we all benefit from it. Also the great pairing system for 16 players over 14 rounds was Wayne's brainchild. It was every effective.

Siri puts in a lot of PR work when travelling, and many visitors are here because of that work. Also, he once again hosted many out-of-towners. That too takes time, and selfless energy.

And a final big thank you to all those who travelled from afar for our tournament. I didn't count but it seems like HALF the players from out of town. BC, Edmonton, Saskatchewan, New Mexico. You are stars. To all those who brought snacks for everyone to share - YUMMY! It was sure nice to have a little energy boost between games. We are grateful you shared with us.
