The first ever California Freestyle Open took place as part of the Dried Plum Festival in Yuba City, California last weekend and the event prooved to be a huge success. A much larger than expected player turnout helped fuel a very competitive finals where several teams performed nearly flawless routines. Team travelled from Colorado, Washington, Oregon and from all across California to play - including 2 current World Champions: Cindy Kruger and Larry Imperiale.
Working with Brynda and the rest of the Festival staff was a pleasure and they made running the event fun and hassle free. I'm very excited to announce that we've been invited back to do it again next year.
Thanks to all the players who travelled far and wide to be here and many thanks to Brynda and her friendly and efficient staff for making this one of the best freestyle events of the year!
