The 2018 Penticton Regional - Wrapup Edition

Only Gatlinburg has been a bigger Regional in 2018

Final table count: 3542½ tables!  This is 305 tables ahead of last year's total, breaking the 1990 record, which happened before Penticton was an annual event.  Bravo to Marv Norden and his team of workers and volunteers.

This page will be your gateway to masterpoint lists, event winners lists (including KO survivors and their next opponents), and direct links to the result details at ACBL Live and the Bulletins produced by Fast Results.  We'll also try to have some photos of winners and perhaps a story or two.

Internet tip: your browser doesn't always actually download the most recent version of a web page.  A new version of this page (as well as the masterpoint lists page and the winners lists) is made nightly.  To ensure you have the latest, hit F5 in most browsers or look for a circular arrow icon to tap, on a handheld device.  Either method tells your browser to stop assuming the one it downloaded yesterday is the most current, and directs it to look online for a newer version of the page.

Photo Gallery!

My duties as a TD precluded me from taking photos as I have for over a decade, but I did take one Thursday Evening, and two people took photos and sent them to me.  In this day and age when everyone has a phone with a camera this may be the way to go.  Finally on Wednesday morning I am completing this after a few days of rest.  The Fast Results bulletins do have some photos tagged with player numbers and if your photo is in their database you may see it there if you make the overalls.

Bracket Five of the Saturday Zinfandel Compact KO Winners: Jack Johnson - Maryellen Gallo, Surrey BC; Thomas Anderson, North Vancouver BC; Ryley Breiddal, Vancouver BC.
A new Silver Life Master (1000 MP) on Tuesday: Bonnie Turley, Vernon BC
Congratulations, and thanks to Jo-Ann Horne for sending the photo!
A new Life Master! Benjamin Levy, Vancouver WA. Congratulations!
