ELIGIBILITY: Open to all Oxnard LBC male members.  Twelve players signed up and played three 10-end games.  There was a 7 point cap on each game.

The first three places were as follows:
     1st Place:   Rich Purcell         3 W + 17 points.
     2nd Place:  Mike Newton       3 W + 11 points.
     3rd Place:   Ken Paddock       2 W +  7 points.
Note:  Using the 7 point cap on each game, there was a tie for 3rd place between Steve Goodmanson and Ken paddock. The tie was broken by using total points.  This allowed Ken one more point giving him the 3rd place win.
Our tournament chairman Jack Bucey put on a great club  tournament with six rinks full.  From very experienced members to some new members, all took part and enjoyed the games.

Thanks go the the markers:  Susan LACroix, Susan Paddock, Sandy Rankin, Marie Moore, Linda Westray and Herb Smith and Dick Gibson who split the duty.

There were several one point games.  Very good competition overall.  In the 2nd game Lenny LaCroix and Jack Bucey were tied after 10 ends.  Lenny won the playoff  by 10-9.

The next three photos show the different positions members use when measuring for point.  Notice the attention being given by the non-measuring players.
