A few days have passed and our season is over but I have to say we had a 
great time at the Championship Tournament.  The tournament is always well 
run and the teams are always fun to get to know.  Gracious Professionalism 
and Coopertition ruled the weekend.

Many thanks to Nick and all of the other volunteers.  Without ya'll the 
tournament would not work.  Personally, I believe all of Nick's students 
deserve A+ for the work that they put in.

One last thought, the weekend brought it all full circle for me personally. 
For our practice round, we lined up in Gold 1.  I started talking with the 
volunteer looking after Gold 1 (not one of Nick's students).  After we 
talked a bit, I thought I must know this young person.  I asked questions 
where he was from.  Turned out I did know him.  I coached him when he was in 
4th and 5th grade.  He is now a junior at JMU.  Brought a smile to my face 
that he was giving back to the FLL community.

Congrats to all the teams that participated in the Championship Tournament, 
you are all winners.  A special shout out to the Division I and II teams 
that will be moving on to the World Festival, great job.
