Irwin Dental Clinic Team Strategizes

The Port Angeles Talking Rain Basketball Tournament was held this past weekend (October 31-November 1, 2009) at Port Angeles High School.  Four fairly evenly matched teams competed over the two day competition of PAHS and PCC alumni plus a team from outside the area.  The four teams were named after their sponsors, the Irwin Dental Center, the Swimmin’ Hole & Fireplace Shop, Prime Time, and Burley Construction.  The Irwin Dental Center was crowned Tournament Champions.

The tournament didn’t have the best turnout this year as only four teams completed compared to as many as 14 teams in years past, but there was no doubt that everyone had a good time, players, coaches, referees, and spectators alike.
