Ca. was the place to be for President’s Day. We had a great

In the finals, the team of Charlie Gates of Bullhead City Arizona,
Gary Jones of Long Beach and Bernice Boik, AKA: B.B., of Bellflower
came in first going through the winners bracket by defeating the
second place team of Jim Martin from Temecula, Terry Leahy of Phoenix
Arizona, and Mike Huber of Bellflower.
To get to the
finals, Jim Martin’s team defeated the very strong third place
team consisting of Jerry Harp from Garden Grove, H.L. Lee of Bishop

job in her first tournament.

sure they got their money out of the event, the team of Dave Brennen
from Rossmoor and Tony Appell of Phoenix Arizona, defeated returning

Spickelmier from Bellflower and Grant Manning from Murrieta.
