We’ve got 8 venues scheduled for Spring tournaments this year: 2 cruises (Danube and Baltic Sea), one-day-only events in Portland, Oregon, Monrovia, California, and Loveland, Colorado, 2-tournament series in Campbell, California, and Decorah, Iowa, and a weekend in Madison, Wisconsin. Lots to choose from, and all good practice for the Word Cup in Springfield, Massachusetts. That runs from July 28 – August 2. Tournament details at Upcoming Tournaments
We played indoors, so we could ignore Saturday’s rain. It cleared up Sunday afternoon and Monday was lovely. Larry and Barbara hosted another great tournament. The hotel was pleasant and the staff was friendly and accommodating. All in all, a great weekend.
38 of us enjoyed a full day of games at the warm-up event for Phoenix 33. Results: PHX XXXIII Early Bird
Fourteen of us played 5 games at my house on February 11. Dave Johnson won all 5, but the game I should have photographed was the one where Rich Moyer scored 641 points. Laurie Collins was 4-1 to win Division 2. Details: February LO Results
Ian Weinstein left Florida to brave the Minnesota winter.
It worked well for him. He won 23 of 32 games, topping former Redeye king Tim Adamson, who came in second with 20 wins. Iowan Mike Johnson, more accustomed to the climate, crushed Division 2 opponents, winning 27 games.
