The 52nd St. Joseph Valley Open will be held in the IUSB Student Activities Center on March 12th & 13th using 32 Butterfly and Donic tables and an uncounted number of Butterfly G40+ balls. SBTTC will be offering 27 events over the 2 days and we look forward to seeing all of you during that time. As you have been reminded several times this is a volunteer effort and is the lifeline for our Juniors Program.

Pam Hazinski (Mark's Mom) was awarded the Virgil Miller award in 2015 by Coach Seemiller and President Steve Betts. The Virgil Miller award is presented annually to a volunteer who over a period of time contributes to the success of SBTTC. Pam exemplifies that not only through her support of Mark, but as a SJVO volunteer beginning in 1993 and over the last several years serving on our Board Of Directors. Our thanks for everything!!
