This Fall we're going for a simpler tournament schedule than the Spring. We will still be running the Handicapped Straight Ladder we've been running since the Summer of 1983, and we'll also offer the tournaments shown below.
This is a firm schedule (times are rather well set but may change so please keep an eye here if you're interested in playing any of these tournaments).
