What is a Dink and Dine Event?
It is a tournament open to all levels of play and the players come from all around the area to enter. Each month the format might vary. Sign up to enjoy the fun! Each player also brings a dish to share.... so you can play a little, eat a little, play a little..... you get the idea. The top three teams or individuals in each level are recognized with the top team or person receiving a traveling trophy.
Fun is always had by all!! A special thank you goes out to Jill Perry, who is the amazing organizer for the events. What a success they have been!

The event was held on Saturday, September 11 and Sunday, September 12. The weather was much better than our August Dink and Dine, cooler and a lot less humid. We had another great turnout with lots of unbelievable competition.
We raised $500 (We did not charge the 4 kids, raised $470 in fees and $30 in donations). I took all money raised from both the August Dink and Dine ($480) and September's Dink and Dine ($500) and gave it to the Goshen Park Department Monday for support of our courts.
Food as always was great, especially a Venezuelan treat from Rolando in the Intermediate group!
Results are as follows:
8 Beginners (4 kids and 4 adults)
1st Place - Austin Horvath
2nd - Tom Berry
3rd - Amy Wiborn (not pictured)
23 Intermediate players
1st place - Kim Gearhart
2nd place - Dane Weaver
2rd place - Rich Durecki
10 teams for Advanced players

Thank you all for coming and we hope to see everyone back at our last Dink and Dine of the season which is October 2 & 3!
