Thanks to the great volunteers who stepped up to make this tournament a success, and a lot of fun for everyone.  Scholastic Director Damian Nash came down with the flu on Thursday night, so HCF Presidet Rob Keough took over as the Chief TD at the last minute, with HCF board members Robert Turner and Sean Uezu assisting.  Special thanks to Lilybeth Ching who ordered and picked up the trophies and medals.  Guy Ontai had a great time, and thanks everyone who honored him at the event.
