Nine members of the Huron Valley 65+ 8.0 team accepted a wildcard invitation to participate in the National 65+ 8.0 Invitational in Surprise, Arizona, in March. Team representatives were: Ann Munro, Deb Crosby, Ann Holz, Karen Caine, Janet Remen, Kathy Green, Leslie McGowan, Sheri Hays, and Judy Silverman. Rosie Wright, Marie Fletcher, and Helen Peters were unable to attend.
The team beat a Washington, D.C., team representing the Mideast conference 2-1 to win their opening match. In the next three matches they lost to Hawaii, Texas, and Minnesota (Northern) but played good competitive matches in the 90-degree heat with not a cloud in the sky.
