Nice job with the tournament, Chuck. The site had good lighting, was quiet, and was kept at a comfortable temperature. And, as always, the players in the Owensboro/Evansville area were very cordial.


Don't you know that in a race all the runners compete, but only one wins the prize? So then, run to win!

It's quite a drive from Lexington, but I'll try to make it over there sometime too.
