Tanglewood Winter Classic

Not been to too many tournaments this year. But last weekend several of the folks from here at Peace River headed over to Sebring for their first ever Winter Classic. Unlike the usual age level Senior Games events, this was a Skill Level Tournment where you played against opponants with equal skill levels. This is really the best kind of tournament. Your matches often last longer - because of the similar levels of play on both sides of the net. Seldom see any 11-0 11-3 matches!

Here are a few shots of some of us prior to the tournament.  Karen, with Jack and Diane and Dakota.

 I played in the 3.5 Skill Level with a lady from Pennsylvania, and Rich played with her husband in the 4.5 Level.   We just met them that day at the tournament.   Lots of fun - but neither of us finished with a medal.  But some of the folks did!
Below - Nathan and Buddy take Gold in Men's 3.5, Rich on the court in the next two pictures.  Diane and Dee took the Silver in the ladies 3.5.  Rich and Dee took the Gold in the Mixed 4.0

Great Job everyone!!!
