ISCA Class at the Crowne
July 17, 2016 by Craig
Hines. Because of rising costs and
conditions at the Clarion Hotel, which ISCA has used
for many years as our primary playing site, we
switched sites to the Crowne Plaza by the airport
this year. I was very pleased with the Crowne and the
playing conditions etc., but I would like to hear
from others what you thought.
We had a good turnout and paid the advertised
prize fund even though we were down 1 player from last
Partik Sriwas (OH), 2348 won the M/X section
which meant that Jay Carr is the M/X Class Champ for
Bernard Parham II (Pictured
Left) was the Class A Champ and Richard Arnold finished on top to become
the Class B Champ. Ted Swogger was the top scoring C
player and C Champ. Scot Pletka (lower Left) tied with Jack
Heller(IL.) (Right) for
Class D honors and is the 2016 Class D Champ.
|TO ALL PLAYERS: Make sure your clock is set
correctly when the game begins and you know how to
stop it to summon a TD. Also please, please learn how
to set your own clock! Problems in these areas have
arisen in the last several tnmts.
The Class E tnmt on Sat. drew 10 players and Raymond Martin of Indianapolis went 4-0 to take the title and trophy for 2016.
Oct.21-23 are the dates for the 75th Indiana
State Championships at the Wyndham West Hotel just
across the 465 HiWay from the Crowne Plaza. We have some
exciting things planned for this year`s tournament and
hope to top last year’s 72 player event! Let`s all
come out and support the 75th!!
SEE YOU AT THE WYNDHAM!
