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 beginner level will always be Switch Doubles round robin format.  This means you don't have to come with a partner.  You will play with a different partner each game.
  • The intermediate level will sometimes be switch doubles, and sometimes will be partner doubles, where you will need to find a partner to play with the entire time.  Some partner play will be mixed and some will be any sex partner; notification of which type will be in the individual fliers that go out each month.
  • The Advanced level will always be partner play.  Some partner play will be mixed and some will be any sex partner; notification of which type will be in the individual fliers that go out each month.
Most of these dates are the second weekend of the month with just a couple of exceptions.  These dates are firm, have been approved by the Goshen Park Department, and have been set taking into consideration all local tourneys that have published their dates as of this announcement.  Mother's Day is May 14, but no other date worked.  Hopefully we will still have lots of participation!

On Saturday May 20th we held a makeup session for the rained out Intermediate and beginner/novice levels.  We had 21 intermediate players and 2 beginner/novice players.  Dan Lind and Doug Perry were kind enough to play with the beginners so there would be enough to play.  They played 5 games to 11, win by 2.  There were 3 pools of 7 in the intermediate level and they played first to 15, win by 2.

Winners were:

GOLD - Pam Gropp
SILVER - Kerry McCain


GOLD  - Nik Booth
SILVER - Phil Rush
BRONZE - Shaun Patrick
4th Place - Nathan Burton

Congratulations to all winners and players!  It turned out to be a nice day for the tourney, a little windy and slightly chilly, but nice!
