After 5 days of non stop activities you could only say THIS WAS FUN organized by Former Governor Pat Nesbitt it was awesome he had some help no doubt and they were good Amado Gonzalez on the Steering Wheel getting it done Lane in the front office doing all the math Glen Holden,Doreen Ladin,Doc Callel,George Dill and many others we will try to cover . It turned out amazing even with some unfriendly SB weather 80 on Thur. 55 on Thur and Sat with no sign of Sun till the presentation of Medals about 30 minutes before the Kentucky Derby Party perfect it was.
About the games they started at 10 am at Bella Vista for the Bronze with Will Rogers taking on El Dorado with a cool mist coming down but they played on it was Will Rogers taking the win by 2 and setting the pace of the day .
Game 2 was for 3 rd place and set Bella Vista host club against a fighting group from Empire and it was a war Omar Mangaliji came to play and he battled it out often saving the day with big clearing back shots as Megan Judge Ron Wanless and led by Francois Berger just kept coming but it was Tayo Masias of peru who just always seemed to have an edge and they went on to win 3rd place in style .
