Great job today, Kevin and Katherine! You pulled off the challenging task of running your first tournament and finishing more or less on schedule with only a couple of real hiccups during the day. People seemed happy on their way home, and that is better than many of us who have run tournaments can often say!

I'm so excited to see students who are willing to promote the game like you both have been doing. It gives codgers like me hope for the future of this crazy thing we do.
