This year’s Sectional Tournament was once again well received by all who participated. There were a total of 117 tables played over 4 days, down from the record breaking 140 of last year, but still a good number.  The clubhouse seemed full for each session - last year they must have been sitting outside!  Unfortunately, there were not enough contestants to play the Kirk and Judy Kitson Novice and Newcomer Pairs.  

My thanks go to our new Director, Nancy Strachan, for her hard work to make this tournament run so smoothly.  It was Nancy’s first visit to the Island, stepping in at the last minute to replace Karl, who is currently receiving radiation treatment.  We all wish Carl well and hope for a speedy recovery. Nancy really enjoyed her stay, hosted by Judy and Gordon Bussell, and looks forward to returning as soon as possible.  She is hoping to be a Director for the Regional in January.  Jack Rhind ably assisted Nancy, and I thank him too.  Another big thank you must go to our very generous sponsors and donors who supplied a terrific pool of prizes.  And I must not forget to thank all the volunteers, most particularly Deb Jhuboo.  Congratulations to all the winners, but most of all, thank you everyone for a terrific turn out - your support makes this event a very special weekend.
