2016 Year in Review

Many of my more cherished racquetball memories from 2016 will not end up being time spent on the courts, and they probably won’t end up on the lists below.

I refereed and provided broadcast assistance at tournaments that I didn’t play in.

GA – NSR 2016 HOPE for a Cure Breast Cancer Racquetball Shootout
SC – 2016 Sweet Caroline Open LPRT

I designed and deployed a few racquetball websites in 2016 (in addition to maintaining this one).

Georgia Racquetball Players Association
Alabama Racquetball Association
Cristina Amaya, Racquetball Pro
Bobby Horn Racquetball
Mauro Daniel Rojas Racquetball
Sudsy Monchik’s Social Media Collector

I contributed to a few racquetball forums in 2016.

I collected racquetball videos (that other people created) and made them available in playlists.
