The Santa Cruz Fives Tournament Was A Huge Success!

The second annual Santa Cruz Fives tournament was held on May 1&2 and was once again a great event. Thanks to Greg Fyvie in his role as tournament director and for having dreamed this up in the first place. Bob Rible became the man behind the numbers, taking on the daunting task of compiling all the team and individual scores. Once again Christine Palochak put together the great snacks and lunches every day and was there at daybreak to see that it all got done along with helpers Heidi Louis, Coral Singer and Margaret Coonce. And of course president Jerry Louis who did everything else to fill in the gaps.
