Bachl/ Gealy Bring Home Gold
The last week in October was the time for the Charlotte Regional Tournament. Several of our players were excited to attend to gain Gold points toward earning their Life Master level. Both Judy Gealy and Carol Bachl earned 10 of their required 25. They hope to gain the rest by the end of next year. Good luck to all who are working toward Life Master.
