US OPEN PLAYER JOURNAL FROM LEO NIKORA:

The third day of Block play had the best weather yet.  Each player played another three games. Afterword, the Toast & Tally was held at the home of Donna Dixon.

Brian Cumming and Dan Pailas won all three of their games today;  Cumming with two triple peels. Charlie Smith upset Paul Bennett.
 
Doug Grimsley tightened the hoops today.  All day long, many of the hoops had to be reset because balls got stuck in them.
