Yesterday's random draw mixed doubles tournament was quite a challenge. Early in the morning they broke one of the tables so only seven tables were available for the tournament. With the draw all set to use eight tables tournament chairman Cornel West needed some fancy footwork to keep the matches going forward. And then with just a few matches left a thunderstorm knocked out power to Laurel Manor Recreation Center and the surrounding area ending the tournament a little early.
Congratulations to our winners.
