Well, thanks to the hard work of our club members (especially Lion 2nd VP Bill Keyburn, who came up with the idea in the first place, and championed it), the first PELC Texas Hold’em Tournament got underway this evening at about 7pm. Even though it was our first effort, it was a success. I left early, so as I write, the games are still in progress. I don’t have a total yet, but we raised a substantial amount of money, which will go into our projects fund, and support things like our scholarship program.
From this modest beginning, we plan to grow this into a major series of fund raising events. I hope it grows to the point that we have to find a larger venue.
