Thank you to all of the players for coming this year, and making this years event a big success!
Thank you to Bill Hamilton, Loni Kroshus and the rest of the bar staff at Coach’s Bar & Grill for taking care of us.
I also want to thank all of my fellow board members; Tom Harrison, Jim Nichols, Nils Nelson, Shawn Larson, Amanda Baasch, and Sara Lampert(PADA’s newest board member) for their help this year. Without any of you none of this is possible!
