US OPEN RESULTS:

We had another great US Open! Nearly 40 registered net players in Open,
Intermediate, Novice, Women's, and Mixed divisions. The big story of the event
was our spectacular Women's net participation - 10 women competing, making it
the largest women's net tourny outside of worlds in many years. Thanks to the
women for rocking it! Due respect to our longest travellers: "Hacky Sack" Jack
Lentz from Erie, PA (new hall of famer!), Kevin Fura from PA, and the Texas
girls Kelly Kelley and Heather Thomas.

Many thanks also to our sponsors: Fancy Footwork, Widmer Brewing, Flying
Clipper, and Tim's Cascade Snacks. Kendall Kic worked her usual magic as
hospitality queen and we were all the better for it.
