Thanks again for putting on this tournament for all of us, Al.

I am truly honored to have been named as the winner of the TWS 2018 Mini-Waterloo Tournament, but will not accept any of the prizes, awards, and honors that go with this victory. As one of the three founders of TWS, I do not want these things for myself. It is simply not about us, and it's never going to be. We founded TWS to give our members a fun place to enjoy their games in peace. Our focus is, and will always be, on the welfare and happiness of our members.

I offer my heartfelt congratulations to my fellow, Scottish officer, Ed Blackburn, for his splendid victory on this field of honor. To him go all of the awards for winning this tournament, including the free game that was so generously donated by JTS to support our efforts. Congratulations, Ed.

Congratulations to Aldo Miccio as well for a game very well played, and to all of you who participated in this tournament and held the course to the end. Thank you for being the active members of our society that you are.

As Al has mentioned, we will be revising and standardizing our tournaments in the future, incorporating improvements that we have learned from the experience of creating and conducting our tournaments for so many years now. I am looking forward to our future together. We know that everyone has options as to where they commit their limited time, and we thank you for playing your games with us here at TWS. We truly do appreciate each and every one of you!

Congratulations to the winners and to all those members who participated. Special thanks are due to Al Kling for organizing and running the tournament. The founders are already planning the next tournament for the fall and regular tournaments have become a very important aspect of the clubs health and growth. Salute.
