Only a month late...the East vs West Competition was the biggest yet! Thank you to all of the players and guests who came down to Harrah's Casino to take part in the event. While the overall score below looks lopsided, this was one of the closest competitions with East and West players trading the lead back and forth multiple times throughout the weekend as each side was looking to win the Bert Adams East vs West Trophy. Both sides were neck and neck until about mid-day on the final day when the East side pulled ahead for good.
