    “From all the comments I’ve received, and from my own observations, the tournament was a big success,” said tournament head Claude Moreau. “The best part of the tournament was seeing the smiles on a lot of people’s faces and bringing the community together. The help from our (club’s) parents and members of the community were outstanding and humbling.”
