May 23-25, 2008: The Fountain Brothers American Legion Post #1619 at 219 Rand Hill Road in West Plattsburgh, New York hosted their first North East Regional Championship tournament over Memorial Day weekend with 32 players signed up Friday, Saturday, Sunday and representing 7 states (New York, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Massachusetts, and Vermont). Players started showing up 3 days before the event started, so it was great!! We plan to continue this event every year.
Many thanks to...
• Pete Cummings and Roger Douglas for helping level the boards
• Pat Brennan of Vermont for running the sponsor sales.
• Penny and Ann for their part taking care of the money and
• Mary Lou for the great meals and snacks.
• and a very special thanks to Irene Rock for her slide show videos of the tournament (she copied disks and made them available for all who wanted them - free!!! That was very generous of her!
Congratulations to all the winners and many thanks to all the players who participated! Lastly, congratulations to Mike Rock (Irene’s husband) who is our new Post Commander. We hope to see everyone at the American Legion Post #1619 again for the 10th Annual Labor Day Weekend tournament on August 29-31, 2008
Thanks to all from your tournament director, Chuck Decker
