The 6th Annual Bob and Marti Tracy USBA Sponsored B/B+; C/C+ Tour Event was held at the Ashland, OR Elks Lodge September 29-October 1st. Wow ! We attracted 35 players, including 18 B’s and 17 C’s. We put them in 5 Flights of 7 mixed B/B/ The winner of each Flight went to the Finals. The C/C= Player with the best record in each Flight went to the C/C+ Finals. Both finals were Round-Robin Format. All players in the finals were in the money. Pictured above B winner Cesar Cardoza (L) and C Winner Bernie Pettipiece (R).
