From Deborah Baggett:
September 22, day of the AUTUMNAL EQUINOX, was the perfect time to harvest bingos in Santa Rosa, CA. In the second WGPO tournament held here, seven new participants joined seven returning participants for eight rounds of competition.
The Oakland Club contingent dominated Division A. Cynthia Pughsley and Terry Veevers competed in a pivotal round 8 KOH. By a mere 10-point margin, Terry prevailed, with Cynthia claiming 2nd place and Kay Patterson claiming 3rd. Kay also lucked out and won the door prize – a bottle of gold medal winning zinfandel.
In Division B, Paul Rickhoff coasted to first place, with 2nd going to Sandy Parry. Two of the competitors were first time tournament players and Deborah Baggett had her very first 500+ game, with a harvest of four bingos. A good time was had by all, in addition to delicious pizza and soup.
Keep your eyes on the tournament schedule and combine a trip to beautiful wine country with a Words in Wine Country competition in the future!
