The 2016 SCD Open Men's & Women's event finished today.

It's a good time to acknowledge all the people who work so many hours of their personal time

to put on the tournaments we all enjoy playing in. Please thank them personally when you get a chance.

Lorraine Hitchcock is the women's events director and is ably assisted by Sharon Mitchell & MaryAnn Beath.

Scott Peterson, our "CFO" takes all the entries for both men's and women's events. After doing this for several years Scott will

be stepping down at the end of the season. Thanks Scott for all you've done! We need to find a replacement.

Larry Strueby has done the computer work for the men's SCD Open and other events. Ron Rollick is the overall men/mixed

director and also helps with the computer work. David Smith handles the TZ Pairs. Bill Wilkinson helps out wherever needed and

was a great help setting up at the Women's Open. Sponge Bob Perry joined the team this year and has been a big help.

Thanks also to the markers(and the people who get them) and other people who help setting up, serving food and cleaning up.
