READ WINNING ESSAY


For the past ten years or so, attendance at the domino tourney has dwindled to around ten or twelve Austinites plus a few from Spring/Houston/Conroe. But even those loyals have growing families and demands that make it very hard for them to make it. Last year's tourney had to be cancelled and even though we tried very hard to find a convenient time, so will this year's.

We think it is time to step back and see if it may be time to phase the official domino tourney out and concentrate on making the horseshoe tourney in October bigger and better. We will continue to take a look and see if things change and maybe have a few unofficial games here.

Brooke has been declared the all-time reigning champ and looks forward to any challenges.

Thanks to each and every one who supported us over the years (you know who you are)....who would have thunk it would have lasted this long.....a testimony to Brad.

See you soon...meanwhile practice on the shoes!!!!
