"Washerboard Extravaganza" (Maple Valley, WA)

You get your name on this plaque if you throw "6 in a row" to win a game.

Bracket selection process for "Doubles" tournament.

My neighbors Mark and Brian.

Brian, HIGA and Bob.

Brian made it to the championship game, so they play on the special boards on the deck!

Brian ended up placing 2nd overall in the Doubles tournament.

Even Michelle competed!  You go southpaw washer thrower!

Louie, Bob and Michelle.

Louie getting some throws in.  She actually won the Consolation bracket and didn't plan to throw today!

I had a blast today at my first "Washerboard Extravaganza" tourney!  A big "mahalo" to Rich and Debbie who hosted the tournament and put on a huge spread of food and drinks for us.  I am still full from eating and snacking!
I was able to get 4th overall in "Doubles" with my neighbor Bob, so I was pretty stoked!  I didn't do good in "Singles" though...still had lots of fun!
