The 2015 Rose City Open was a great success and great fun.  There were 24 teams from all over the country who participated, and one team included a person from France.  Our committee and many volunteers made sure that the PPC hosted yet another great tournament.  From the Friday evening aperitif and team draw, to our Saturday night catered dinner by La Provence to our final game and prize presentation.  Thank you all and a special thanks to our many donors and our main sponsor Willakenzie Winery!

Everyone played a minimum of 8 games over the 2 days with those advancing in the elimination rounds getting to play even more.   Our semi-final games and final were all hard fought close games both in the concourse and the consolante.

Here are our winners:  They shared in the $4,900 prize purse.
