CDA Casino 2015 Logo                         Antigua                     Circling-Raven-144x100

The 2015 IEPGA Cup Matches are complete.  Its been over 30 years but was well worth the wait for the Amateurs.  The 2015 Amateur team completed their victory with a pretty dominate singles match day.  The final total was Amateurs – 13 1/2    Pro’s – 6 1/2.

Thank you very much to Grant Holcomb and John Anderson from Antigua for sponsoring the event and providing the clothing for the matches for both teams.  The shirts and jackets looked great!

Thank you to Tom Davidson, the Coeur D’Alene Casino, the Coeur D’Alene Tribe and all the staff at Circling Raven for hosting this great event.

The full results for both days and all three rounds are posted below.
