We have finalized our 2013 tournament schedule. We start the year early this year with a melee tournament on April 14. The week after is a pair of Regional tournaments -- Singles and Triples -- which LBNY and NYPC will co-host in Brooklyn's Parade Ground terrain. We finish our season on Columbus Day weekend traditionally with our NY Open.
Ludwig Vinches and Jean-Michel Delincourt of Canada beat Richard "Ti" Mean and Phil Hemery of La Boule New Yorkaise, 13-6, to capture this year's New York Open title. Thirty-two teams in all took part, with players coming from Massachusetts, California, Maine, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Germany, and, of course, Canada. The beautiful weather of Saturday turned into a chilly, rainy day Sunday. All teams played 4 games to qualify 16, with a 5th game knock-out played for the last game in Saturday.
