What happened in the previous two weeks:
Greg Schatzman, Aaron Thompson, Chris Sherry, and John Maino won the Washington State Men's Club championship yesterday - and go on to the National Championships in Fairbanks March 3-11.
Most of the games were close. Two had extra ends of which, alas, the Grant team came out on the short end both times.
There were no entries for the Women's competition.
Thanks to Joel Russ for serving as chief umpire and to all the other officials. Thanks to Joe, Severin, and Dave for the great ice.
Lyle Sieg, Tom Violette, Steve Lundeen, and Ken Trask took third at the Senior Men's National Championships. World Champion in 2015, they had hoped to have another shot. Nadyne Krienke, Karen Brattesani, Elizabeth Johnson, and Dani Thibodeaux finished with a 2-2 record in the Senior Women's.
In the Mixed Doubles Qualifier, Derrick McLean and partner Alex Carlson Qualified from the A event. Cristin Clark and Matt Birklid qualified from the C.
