With regret, we are not able to host a tournament this year due to the lack of participating teams. We would like to thank all the past teams, sponsors and fans who came out and supported this program. Spe- cial thanks go out to the Puffer Family of Broadcasting for their broadcasting and advertising of the games for many of those years. Thank you to those Lions members and vol- unteers who worked many hours to make the games an ex- ceptional event. All the proceeds from this tournament were used to benefit local charities and special programs. The Cohase Lions Club will continue to be generous to those local chari- ties and programs. THANKYOU!
