Midnight Sun Tournament Draws and Results

Schedules for Saturday afternoon and Sunday will depend to some extent on what happens in the earlier matches.
Since many players are playing in two divisions, we need to stay a bit flexible.
I will know the exact schedule for Saturday by the end of the day on Friday and the exact schedule for Sunday be Saturday afternoon.

This is a community event - please come out and watch some of the matches you are not involved in and plan on having a hot dog for lunch on Saturday. We will take a short lunch break after the matches starting at noon.

I will do my best to work around everyone's schedules. Obviously any one person can not be on two courts at the same time.

Looking forward to seeing everyone on the courts - the weather is supposed to be beautiful!
