1st OPEN CH.  Roy Babcock & Myrna BiltonLois and I participated in the CNSA National Open Tournament, May 27th & 28th!!  Lois and I were forced to leave the tournament on Day 1; seems you can only take “2nd” twice??  lol  We were excluded from the generous prize money ($100.00 +for 1st) by Norma Bruce and George Admiral.   We remained in Woodstock the rest of the 27th, enjoying dinner with Henry and Geraldine, spent the night in the Quality Inn, one of the major sponsors, and returned to the venue on the morning of the 28th to take pix of those who “were in the money”!!  After taking the pix we left for home, primary reason; it is a 7 hour drive.  Upon arrival at our home just outside of Ottawa, Tournament Director Lorraine Pollock’s e-mail was found in my inbox!  I am now going to post the results!!  Most shufflers reading the BLOG will undoubtedly recognize the names of those “taking home the cash”!  Fairly significant cash I might add, thanks to the great effort, the great success, of tournament organizers Marlene and Jim Corbeil.  HERE WE GO! I will begin with 4th place in Consolation:

    Congratulations Woodstock, for a great tournament. Jim and Marlene and crew from this club did a fantastic job. Lorraine Pollock and sidekick Bill, did their usual job of running the tournament smoothly, and timely. Congratulations on the turnout of players in both divisions, and also to the well deserved winners. Woodstock, you need to be commended on all your efforts in organizing this CNSA Tournament. Bill and Maureen Bryan. (Centre Wellington club.) ELORA.
