Unbeaten Gold 60+ winners Don & Mike (4-0, 8-1) not only won 4 of their 8 games by 2 points, but also escaped Jim & Ray Hillyard in the title game, 13-11, 12-10.  By again, a nail biting 2 points.  This 4.0 Men's 60+ bracket was pure competition!
In the 4.0 Men's 60U, Ray & Joshua battled thru similar stiff competition, winning the gold 2 of 3 games.  They then led the 60U medal winners in a separate "Open" Medal games vs their counterparts in 60+. 
The 60U (Ray/Joshua) won the "Open" Gold match-up but the big news is, 60 Under didn't sweep the Medals.  Bronze and Silver went to the 60+ men!  Jerry & Clark of 60+ knocked off 'Smitty' & Mike in the Bronze battle while Jim & Ray Hillyard d. Jimbo & Kevin in the open Silver.

In the 3.0 W-D, Elizabeth & Jennifer (5-0, 10-1) blasted thru the tourney but needed a strong showing as Katie & Rose pushed them to 3 games in the gold match.  The 11-8, 10-12, 11-7 match was close enough to have their opponents tasting gold after the 2nd game!

Steve & Melody earned the Gold in the toughest Mixed there was at 4.0.  They went a perfect 5-0, 10-0 in pool & single elim.  Raymond & Karen Hillyard won Silver, dropping the title game in 2 games.  Steve & Melody were the best all around team (by stats) in the "Dink Dink BANG!" tourney this year.
Steve & Adriana Pavletic earned their gold Sunday starting in pool play, where they eeked out 2 12-10 games lifting them into 1st place in pool.  The 1st round in Single Elim looked bad, losing the 1st game 6-11 to #4 seed Rob R & Lori T before taking the next 2.  Gold game vs Ron & Amy was similar, starting off with a 4-11 loss before putting together 2 wins, 11-5, 11-4.  Dan Wright & Tracey Yensen placed 2nd in pool play before dropping their semi match.

Tim C & Katie took Gold in 3.0 knocking off Jimmy B & Marty R in 3.  This Gold team went 5-0, 10-3 in the tourney while Jimmy & Marty were 3-2, 7-6 overall. This Pool Play story could be #3 Gabriel Hollies & Rebecca Arjen who went 1-2, but lost 3 games in pool play by 2 points.  Easily could have turned them from 3rd to 1st.  Or maybe even Joseph B & Monica P.  They knocked off the eventual Silver medalists 11-3, 13-11 in pool and were edged out for the semi's in tie-breaker by Mike K & Carol S.
Talking about stories!  Gold medalists Mark & Kristen Cahill knocked off Marc & Gayla for Gold only 3 weeks after stepping on a pickleball court!  Talk about catching on quick!  Look out 4.0's, newbies are on their way!
Singles OPEN                                                                    
  1-Jim Cantrell                  
  2-Jimbo Peterson
  3-Raymond Hamid
  4-Steve Vozza
Jim Cantrell proved that an Open Gold Champion can be overlooked by the untrained eye.  Cantrell wasn't pushed by anyone in the Singles bracket of the tourney, giving up 6 points max except to eventual #4 Steve Vozza, 16-14.  Silver went to Jimbo Peterson and Raymond Hamid took bronze, though going 5-0 in pool play.  There was a heavy field of contenders.. Drago (3-3), Jeremy Lasich (3-3) Melody Litzenberg (2-3) and a few others.
Defending champions will have premium seats awaiting them next year to defend their titles!  And remember,
