The women competitors came from 3 states (Nevada, Arizona and California), The first few rounds started slow, it was an amazingly hot day, but all the ladies played hard and stayed focused. Jenny Lee, a local favorite,  beat Susan Williams of Arizona in a hill hill battle for the hot seat. On the one loss side, Sara Miller won over Melinda Huang 5-2 while Rebecca Wagner eeked out Barbara Lee 5-4. After a hill hill loss to Susan, Rebecca battled back through the losers beating Sara Miller 5-1 for the chance to play Susan again. Rebecca bears down and beats Susan 5-1. After a 2-0 lead Jenny falls behind 5-2 in the first race to 6. And Rebecca wins 6-4. Up  4-1 Rebecca, both ladies struggled with the heat and the long day, but Rebecca seemed fired up after her march through the losers side and wins 5-1 over Jenny to win the invitation to the World Championship!  A big thank you to Marie our Tournament Director, Eddie Arreguin from Hard Times for hosting the event and to Dragon Promotions for putting on a west coast qualifier.
