Nice entry total: 92 partners vying for honors on the upgraded courts at Sun City. This took place from April 3rd to 5th, 2017.
Sponsors were The Bank of Hemet and The Soboba Band of Luiseno Indians. We certainly commend them for this.
ATM’s were Liz Backus and Dick Massey. Other personnel helping put this tournament together were: Dave Ruch, kitchen supervisor, (Nice lunch selection every day!), Board crew: Bob Anderson, Steve Beatty and Ray Merritt. Head referee was George Hayner and score keeper was Dennis Iszler. Thank you all for your contributions.
The 12-frame games were played under CSA rules.
The winners were –
Championship: First place, Robert Brooks (SDSE) and Chuck Crouse (Mesa AZ), This being the second National win for each of them, no pin was awarded.

All winners received money awards plus the”Sun City Cal Round pins”
