The tournament has become a staple event on Prince Rupert’s roads during Seafest, and Michele Cross Pomponio, one of the event’s organizers, said players anticipate it every year.

“The tournament went really well,” said Pomponio. “It was a smaller competition than in previous years, but the participants still had fun.”
