24 Teams Battled It Out at the 8th Annual George Dorner 42 Tournament at The Bluff

Sulphur Bluff residents love to play 42 and they are good at it! The George Dorner Memorial 42 Tournament was formed 8 years ago to honor Dorner and to keep the tradition alive. It also serves a very good cause. Each year, proceeds go toward the purchase of bibles for each student in the senior class of Sulphur Bluff High School. Each teams pay an entry fee for two seats in the tourney where competition is stiff and neighborly fun rules the day in the Fellowship Hall of Sulphur Bluff United Methodist Church.

Competition was tough, but the team of Nathan Crouch and Joe Bob Self emerged in Second Place.

All ages can enter, and 91-year-old Goldie Darlin came to the game to win! Her partner was her granddaughter Wendy Forbes, and they took the Third-Place title. Each team takes home keepsake championship metal plaques and a certificate
Out of the 24 determined teams made up of past winners and winner-hopefuls, there is intense concentration as well as lighthearted fun, lots of snack foods and desserts and plenty of fellowship.
