I hope they have found their DCC experience to be exciting as well as beneficial.
We were all anticipating the return of DCC Tuesday night tournament games. Not knowing if the registration would be high or low after 19 months of being closed due to the nationwide pandemic, and with the DCC requiring a full COVID vaccination. In addition to requiring players to also sign a DCC liability waiver. We did not in our wildest dreams anticipate that the re-opening at the... Read more >>

... and the whole room broke out in applause.
What a great follow up we had to the DCC "Nearly Normal" tournament. Our "Almost Normal" tournament attracted over 70 players. Just an excellent turnout for a one day event.
