One-Day Tournament: Saturday 28 June 2014


30 players came to the one-day Tournament Saturday June 28th. This was the last one-day tournament of the year. Jane Bissonnette has announced she will be directing more one-day tournaments, starting next year. Thanks to everyone who helped with setup and clean up, especially George Bissonnette. Great job, you guys!

Out-of-towners swept the top spots in all divisions, but a few Seattle players came in the money. Daval Davis placed second in Division C, Georgianne Fiorini placed second in Division D, and Ann Ferguson got third in Division B and George Bissonnette finished third in Division C. Tom Bond, Daval Davis, and Norm Garvin also won for high play in their respective divisions. Norm also won a prize for the best extension.

Once again, Jane Bissonnette organized everything, and directed, and played!, with Lynn Dreyer's son Charlie doing most of the data entry. They used Marc Levesque's Director! program to do the pairings and results, Michael Thelen's Zyzzyva for word judging, and Cross-tables for maintaining the player entrant list.

Donations were made to Cross-tables, Zyzzyva, and Director! from the tournament proceeds in grateful appreciation for their use.
