To everyone who took time out of their busy schedules, who refereed for hours, who trained so hard and who sat up in those stands cheering....Thank You!!!

The Hospitality/Officials room was delicious as always and has received many compliments. The security was abundant and kept everything and everyone safe. The pool room did their magic and got everyone into their appropriate pools.

To all the Committee Heads – thank you again and again for all you did in your respective areas. There aren’t enough words to express our deep appreciation to you for your dedication to the club and this tournament.

Table help, pooling/announcers of the pools, presenters of the awards, registration and weigh-in personnel, Referees, Medical staff, Coaches, all of you we give a round of applause for a job well done...going above and beyond.
