The 2019 Tri-Cities Regional: Monday, October 21

Welcome to West Pasco!

Attendance So Far

26½ tables at the end of Monday play; down from 2010 by 3½ tables (-13.2%).  Not the greatest start, but if it rained in Washington like it did in Vancouver on Monday, I can understand people deciding not to hit slippery roads and come out later in the week.
