    We had a beautiful Memorial Day weekend here at VaJoWa and we hope everyone enjoyed the weather as well. We also took some time to remember those who served our country.
    The Owen Prince Memorial Tournament went well and congratulations to the winners Peter Stanley and David Edgar. Coming in a close second were Scott Flannery and Aaron Flannery.
