The men were broken up into 3 divisions of 5 players each with the top 2 from each group playing in the afternoon session.

In the finals, we had Michael Abbott, Brett Gabbard, Tony Gidcumb, Jeremiah Millar, Mike Boughner, and Mike Evans. 

The first round saw Brett defeat Michael A. 3-0, Mike B. defeat Tony 2-1, and Jeremiah defeat Mike E. 3-0.  The second round had Jeremiah defeat Mike B. 3-0, Michael A. defeat Tony 2-1, and Brett defeat Mike E. 3-0.  In the third round, Jeremiah defeated Michael A. 3-0, Mike E. defeat Mike B. 2-1, and Brett defeat Tony 3-0.  Going into the fourth round, we had the match of the night.  Brett Gabbard was undefeated in the finals, while Jeremiah was a perfect 21-0 on the day.  In this round, Jeremiah defeated Brett 3-0, Mike E. defeated Tony 3-0, and Michael A. defeated Mike B. 3-0.  The last round had Brett defeating Mike B. 3-0, Mike E. defeating Michael A. 3-0, and Jeremiah finishing with a perfect day (24-0) by defeating Tony 3-0.

Congratulations to Jeremiah Millar and Brett Gabbard for winning the men's division and to Lisa Jones for winning the women's division. The regional tournament is expected to be held in early November.  

On the day, we had a total of ten 9-marks.  There was one Dead-Eye shot by me, unfortunately, it was in practice and didn’t count.  Brett won the “9-mark battle” with a total of 5 on the day.  Jeremiah finished with 3, Randy Whalen had 1, and Ron Burrows with 1.

A big thank you to Pam Stafford for keeping the scores for us all day.
