Windsor Tournament Mar 23-25~~
DAC representation was pretty respectable for Windsor’s second tournament of the season. Not including myself, we had 9 members in the draw and every one of them scored at least one win. Unfortunately, no one went all the way although some were close, but all gained match toughness, tournament experience, free beer, great squash, and a bright orange shirt that looks like it could glow in the dark.
Even in the doubles - where we traditionally struggle – we did win some matches. Given, the teams were only 50% DAC (their partners were from Windsor), but we’ll take what we can get. Our first finalist was Mike Counsman who paired up with Paul Gebrael in the heavyweight B division and after knocking out our other DAC doubles player in John Dunwoody (partnered with Gerry Guay) 3-1 in the semi final, they went down 3-1 in the final to Doug Fields and Sean Guay (Windsor). Sean is apparently too fast to get run over by the bigger lads, and too young to realize he doesn’t need to cover 80% of the court.
Appreciations are to be passed on to Brian Porter, Dave Guthrie, Tom and Marcie Porter and the Windsor Squash Club staff – you never cease to make us feel extremely welcome and we look forward to the next event. Cheers, guys!
