The competition took place on the 14th of July. We thank all the people who came the competition, it was a wonderful day with lots of fun! Pea and Ham soup was served for lunch, which everyone enjoyed. Cake and coffee was also available throughout. The billiard team was once again lead by Harri Jumpponen who kept everything running smoothly.
Talvikki Jumpponen and Veikko Fadjukoff won in their respective bracket and continue to be our champions for another year.
All Placements are as follows: Women: 1st Talvikki Jumpponen, 2nd Tara Jumpponen , 3rd Terttu Jumpponen Men: 1st Veikko Fadjukoff , 2nd Raine Matikainen, 3rd Mauri Kankaampaa Youth: Caitlin Jumpponen
Next year we would love to see more females and youths participate, Caitlin wasn’t able to verse against any other youth so she won by default and entered as a competitor in the adult women’s category.
If you missed out, be sure to attend next year. You meet wonderful people, and you might just become one of our next champions!
