July 4 Tournament
The Ottawa tournament on July 4th has been renamed. After a club meeting the members of the Ottawa club contacted Melvin Jeardoe and asked him to change the Chatouqua Open tournament to the Barney Bell Open. They all felt that after all he has done in the way of recruiting and improvements to the court complex in Ottawa, in addition to directing tournaments and league that this would be a very fitting way to honor him.
The tournament results for the Harley Tucker Open in Ottawa on 6-1-2014 are now posted. The high over average pitcher in this event was Allen Renner of Lyndon who pitched an even 10 percentage points over his entry average while turning in his personal best tournament at 22.5%. Allen just pitched in his first KHPA tournament last October in Topeka. Other over average pitchers included Lyle Turner, Mike Morgan, Darrel Rilinger, Percy Oliver, Gale Norris, Rich Gassdorf, Mary Miller and Rick Talley.
