Thirty players celebrated St. Patrick’s Day in LaCrosse, Wisconsin, by playing 13 tournament games, followed by 10 more on the 18th.  This was a replacement for the much-loved 30+ game Redeye.  We all enjoyed the games, the opponents, and the plentiful food.  Mike Johnson directed.  Division winners were Lisa Odom, Dave Postal, and Pat Yovonovitz.  Results: Greeneye Results
