1. Do you ever feel like some day you're the dog and other days you're the hydrant? 

2. It is hard to make a comeback when you haven't been anywhere.

3. I really think if GOD wanted me to be able to touch my toes, he would have put them

    on my knees.

4. What's the difference between a new wife and a new dog? ANSWER - After a year, the

dog is still anxious to see you.

5. When someone asks you "A penny for your thoughts," and you put your two cents in,

what happens to the other penny?

6. When cheese gets it's picture taken, what does it say?

7. Do fish have wet dreams?

8. You never really learn to swear until you learn to drive?

9. No one ever says. "It's only a game", when their team is winning.

10. GOD grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway; the good

fortune to run into the ones I do like and the eyesight to tell the difference,

More Next week!!

                                         WHAT TOURNAMENTS EAST OF VEGAS ARE TEAMS ATTENDING?                        

Good question, we always hear about how many teams are attending tournaments but nobody bothers to break it down so you can find out where each age and rating groups are going to play. Do you really care if a tournament is drawing SIXTY-TWO teams if only FOUR are in your age and rating group?

So what I have done based on the information available on tournament attendance figures for SPA, ISSA and SSUSA , I have a list of the attendance by age and rating for each tournament. ISSA and SPA were easy but SSUSA was a little difficult because they do not list the attendance figures for all their tournaments (have to really search to other sites to find them, especially those with under 25 teams)

Anyway here are the results. Keep them in mind when determining what tournaments east of Vegas to attend next year.  Listing the top FIVE DRAWS only.
