To all Colorado (& beyond) Handballers,
Thank You!!! You made this the most successful Colorado State Doubles Handball/HOF Weekend, in my ~20 years of involvement running the tournament. Working together with my co-directors, Stan Dunlavy & Mark Hammond makes this a special event. Stan's boundless energy, and the knowledge, experience & organizational skills they both possess, help to run the best tournament possible.
Thank You!!! To each of the 134 individual players, who played in the 2008 event.
Thank You!!! To the 126 attendees of the HOF Dinner & Induction Ceremony.
Thank You!!! Arne Arnesen, our Emcee and "Professor of Slime"
Thank You!!! To Bob Hickman, for running the Novice competition and Congratulations and welcome to Colorado Handball, to all of the Novice players in their first competition.
Congratulations to all participants, to the winners' of each of the 10 divisions and to our
2008 CHA Hall of Fame inductees, Bill Moyle & Mike Roth.
Thank You!!! To all the generous donors, who have helped with financial and in-kind support.
There are too many names for me to remember & list here. You know who you are AND we do appreciate your help. THANKS AGAIN.
To all of you who couldn't participate this year, as well as those 'record breakers' that did,
set aside the 2nd & 3rd weekends of March 2009. We try to hold this event approximately the same time each year. Holidays and DAC availability & conflicts, determine the exact dates.
We look forward to another record breaking and fun weekend, at the 2009 Colorado State Doubles Championships & Hall of Fame Induction Banquet, next March. We'll see you next year.
