Labor Day Weekend 2006
Hi all. Finally recovered
enough to get this update out on the tournament. And WOW, what a
tournament it was. The old saying what happens in Vegas… Well,
What happens at Oskars…
Anyway, first off, a
salute to all serving our country in this trying time and May God
bless you all.
We had a 19 team ABC.
This allowed us to pay out to 6th places. The results are:
First place to the team of Bobby "freehand" Ruiz, Lewis
Bailey and Kelly Hampton. Bobby’s team went through the winners
bracket and made short work of the finals in two games.
Second Place belongs to Bob Brunskill, Jeff Posthumus and Pearl
Minard. Third place was Ty Bayne, Terry Leahy and Ralph Clough.
Fourth place was
Phil Fridley, Linda Churchman and Denise Bailey
Payout on the ABC was
an astounding $7800.00.
Congratulations to all.
In the add to 2 event,
we had a total of 17 very good teams. Again, we paid out 6 places
with the following results:
First place winners were
Timmy O’Brien and Dave Brennen. What a pairing. This team
came from losing their first match of the tournament to "double
dip" in the finals.
Second place went to
the team of Cindy Clark and Wendell Herbison. Way to go Arizona.
Third place finishers
were Grant Manning and Jim Golden. Another great showing from out
of stators. Way to go Nevada.
Fourth place was the
team of Bubba Warren and Jeff Posthumus. Local boys make a strong
Fifth/sixth place finishers
are Ty Bayne and warren Goldsmith representing Northern Ca., and
Mike Parrish and Georjean Brown, our friends from Florida on a quest
to become West enders again. Welcome home by the way.
Total payout in the add
to 2 was $5600.00
Finally the moment we
have all been waiting for, the add to 4 event. With eleven teams
in this field, we paid out three places for a total of $3000.00.
First place goes to Anna
Brunskill and Allan Healey. A great local team with a great performance.
Second place went to
Manny Canada and Alice Arredondo. Again, Arizona makes a great showing.
Finally third place is
the team of Mike Ringer and Jerry Harp. This is a split team from
Northern Ca. and Southern Ca.
I cannot thank all the
players enough for being here and enjoying the weekend. What a wonderful
group of people that I personally am very proud to know.
A couple of special thank
Bubba Warren. What a
great job as always for running this tournament.
Susie Jones. Without
you Susie, we would be lost.
Anna and Bob Brunskill
for the great food and support that so many expect, but I admire.
Paul Webber. As always
Paul, a great job with the Calcutta.
Jan Manes for doing a
great job on the 50/50 drawings. We raised over $250 for our Hall
of Fame fund.
Oscar Ugarte. For giving
us a place to play and your continued support of this sport.
All the servers who took
care of us over the weekend.
And finally a very special
thank you to Jim Golden. Jim was able to bring the wax for the tournament
as we had a "wardrobe malfunction" with the wax and Jim
bailed us out.
We look forward to continued
events at Oscars. Look for the flyer on this site for the Thanksgiving
Day Tournament and Hall of Fame induction ceremony for Paul Webber.
We hope to see you all
Yours Truly, Jeff Posthumus
