Doubles 100 – Starting January 10, 2012

Whip out the calculator, or if you are not so technologically savvy, your abacus, and start evaluating your potential doubles partner! Starting on January 10 is the Doubles 100 Tournament where you and your partner’s ages must add up to at least 100 years. And I suggest you lock your partner in quickly. There will be an ‘A’ and a ‘B’ draw, and I expect the competition to be fierce.

Last year, the B final was decided by 1 sudden-death point as Joe Moran and Ken Katz lost 18-17 in the fifth game to Mike Petix and John Chouinard and I am sure Joe and Ken would like to avenge their loss. In the A’s, Bob Thibodeau and Bowden Brown lost for the first time in 3 years to Peter Logan and Patrick Petz – and as competitive as Bob is and how this small friendly rivalry has developed, I am sure he has been waiting for this opportunity to retaliate.

The registration deadline is January 6. You must sign-up with a partner, so practice your addition and start searching. The draws will be knock-out, no consolation, all matches are best of 5 games. It will be your responsibility to make sure you play the match within the deadline given or face the penalty of death… um, I mean forfeit. Be respectful of your fellow members’ schedule and be flexible. The winners of each draw will receive a stitched shirt with their names on them for the entire world to see and bow down to their success!
