On June 10-11, Unit 163 had an Under 500 tournament at the Country Inn and Suites. There were 35 tables for the two day tournament. Many communities were represented including Unit 163 communities of Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, Quad Cities, Waterloo, and Dubuque. In addition there were players from Minnesota, Missouri, and Illinois. Many participants took advantage of the free lessons by MaryAnn. Local players Marion Engel, Jack Falat, Gary Edwards and MaryAnn, had a panel discussion between sessions on Saturday. Bill Kent did a great job directing. It was a great opportunity for players to earn silver and compete with peers.
