Well, this tourney started out as a Men's & Women's Pairs competition. But when we were missing a couple of people, rather than exclude those who showed up, we made it into a Mixed Pairs competition. And although four 10-end games turned out to be a bit long, it was FABULOUS!
Congratulations to Pat Chan and Kole Carr for placing 1st.
