2008 Vancouver-Seattle Interclub Challenge Nov 15th

Seattle Team

Vancouver Club director John Aitken organized the third (annual) Vancouver-Seattle Interclub Challenge Tournament. This year we played 8 games (7 game Round Robin plus a final Monarch-of-the-Hill) at the one-day tournament held in Ferndale, Saturday November 15th. Erika Werdal scored a fabulous location at the Whatcom Educational Credit Union and Jane Bissonnette coordinated signups for the Seattle team. Val Gallant and Lam Tang also helped out with the tournament. Rebecca brought brownies.
