If we had to describe this tournament in one word it would be WOW! This years California
"Open" was one of the most exciting ever! Several first time competitors made some major
upsets! The great part of the "Open" is that you never know when some new raw talent is
going to step up to the table and upset the veteran competitors!
The tournament started at high noon. Shed World provided us with an excellent stage in the
Shade! The competition started off furious and stayed intense all day as competitors from several states battled to take home the Title and one of the prestigious trophies!
