Al Dronsfield reports the results from the ND. Tournament ND14 was held this week at Hawthorne. A Mixed Dbls. event saw 32 teams.
Directed by Donna King and sponsored by Lyle and Katie Walker also Mark and Bonnie Goetzingers. We had some pretty good teams for this one, such as Lyle and Katie Walker, Pat King with Sharon Upson, Bob Robinson and Carol May, Stan Williamson and Carol Adams, Richard Burchardt and Patty Foster also Ivan and Lorraine Layton, Allen Dronsfield and Sue McLaughlin.
Many hard fought battles along with some surprises. Stan and Carol met us in the quarters and we sent them home, Lyle and Katie met Pat and Sharon and the Walkers were out.
In the end two players that were probably not picked to win did.
Frank Cherill and Gail Howell motored right along and one by one found their way into the semi’s against Sue and myself. They didn’t waste time as they made pretty quick work of us and then onto the finals against Pat and Sharon. When the dust cleared Frank and Gail were on top. They played great throughout the tournament.

From myself I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Shuffling New Year.
