A strong contingency of BAPA members traveled to the Northern Idaho Senior Games
(aka Lewis-Clark Senior Games). Three days of steady rain forced the Games to be played indoors at the Clarkston High School Gym. On the first day of competition, Rudy Whittaker and Bob Calver teamed up to capture the Gold in Men’s Doubles. Also capturing the Gold in the “Old Man’s” Division was the strong team of “Mitch” Mitchell and Jan Johnson. Tournament Director, Doug McMillan, decided to have an exhibition match between the two Gold Medal teams. Two games were played, with each team winning one, so our four “boys” are all champs with no one besting the other.
On the second day, Rhonda Reed teamed up with Bob in Mixed Doubles. They fought
valiantly to a second place tie but had to settle for a 3rd Place Medal due to receiving 4 fewer points than the 2nd place team after 12 games of competition for the entire tournament. Linda Mitchell teamed up with Rudy to become a ferocious tournament team. They clearly separated themselves from the rest of the field and swept away the Gold Medal.
Congratulations to our 6 “warriors.” Nicely done!
