Although the AC overdid it a little, the competition was hot enough. Boards were fast and required little sprinkling. Several games were decided on the last shot. Notably, Lynda Goggin won 2 games that way. Yellow can be important!
Here in Hemet, 16 frame games take a very long time. 2 1/2 hours or more. As a result, on the second day the games were started early and still ran late. We will address this for next years games. Suggestions?
Congratulations to the winners. A National Pin can only be won once, and this year, Val McDougal and Phil Spencer are the winners!
