Record set in Singles and Doubles
A record number of singles and doubles lined up to play at the Spring Amateur 1.5> at Journey's End on April 14th, 2007. Singles and doubles from Michigan, Ohio and Indiana participated in this event. Special thanks to our out of state guests, Rob Kern, Jessica Williams, Mike Cork, James Sanchez, Sarah Williams and The Famous Lacho Barradas for driving down from Michigan. And for driving up from Ohio, Roger Wilhelm, Glenn Smith, Bob Lang and Sharon Crowder.

When the dust settled it was determined that 54 different people played this year. Of those 54 people, 30 are unrated including Tony Watson from Fairmont, IN. New rater and master of the brackets, Gary Neff, will see that many of these players are added to the ratings for 2008 pending his final approval as a rater by the new ratings committee.

Singles starts at 1:15 PM
Given the number of participants it was decided to start the singles event as soon as the sponsor sales was done. Singles play started at 1:15 pm and the sale for the doubles took place. Rules were as follows, no practice weights all day, no meeting to talk at the middle of the board until one team is at 10. No meeting at the middle of the board in the singles at all :-)

Gary Neff reports that 90 games out of the possible 120 were played before there was an open board. Then things went to hell in a hand basket. You can see from the winners list where the problem came in. Glenn Smith, Tony Watson, Nick George and Jessica Williams were finalists in the singles. They were also finalists in the doubles. Even as talented as these folks are, they couldn't play two matches at the same time. Last year the both events finished 13.5 hours after they began. This year it was 18 hours.

It was reminiscent of the tournaments at the Bourbon Legion as the doubles finished at 5AM and the singles finished at 7:30AM. Several ideas are being considered to make the next tournament go more smoothly.

Special thanks to Gary Neff for running the bracket boards. Thanks to Jody Berry for helping with registration and sale. And thanks to everyone that participated. Email me if you have suggestions for the next amateur tournament and be sure and see the summary of past Amateur tournaments 2004-2007.
