Larry Ioffredo WG91 (left) writes: “Here is a photo of Pal Berg WG91 and me after competing in the Steamboat Classic pickleball tournament.

I have to wait for Pal to catch up to me in a couple of years. An open invite to all of our classmates to drop a line to me if visiting Steamboat Springs, CO. Great all-year-round activities.”
