  4. There were special prizes for age brackets over 60 and for brackets under 20. The focus was on seniors and juniors for this tourney. Perhaps some day there will be a a "sliding over the hill" tourney for us middle aged folks.

  5. Players between 50 and 60 are heavily favored to win and don't need any extra prizes...
