Bob Campbell continues his dominance of the Labor Day Mixed Doubles Tournament. With no one
left to challenge Bob and Kelly Stratton in the 'A' flight section, Bob turned to Mom, Linda Abert
for a partner and won the 'B' flight section beating Karen Lopez and
Tom Isaacson in 2 sets. Bob made it a family affair, pictured with
Hannah, Sarah, and Ryan, alongside Mom, Linda. It was Bob's 17th
victory in this tournament in the last 19 years, most of them with
Kelly Stratton. Who's gonna top that? Tournament Director Rich Murray, pictured center, did his usual
magnificent job of running what was essentially 2 tournaments which
included Saturday's Round Robin event with over 30 entrants. Check
