A new feature of the tournament was the Military/Police/First Responder competition and we had eight teams, including AFROTC Detachments from Texas Christian University and the University of North Texas; the 24th Fighter Squadron, Carswell JRB; the 221st Combat Communications Squadron, Hensley Field; the 344th Recruiting Squadron; the Mesquite Police Association; the Richardson Police Department; and the Collin County Sheriff's Department. The overall winner was the Collin County Sheriff's team which designated their $1000 prize to the non-profit Collin County S.H.E.R.I.F.F fund, created to support Sheriff’s Office personnel and their families with immediate financial and emotional support during illness and catastrophic events. The second place winner was the Richardson Police Department team, which selected the Richardson Fraternal Order of Police Cops and Kids program as the recipient of their $500 prize.
Seidel Chapter Representatives presented symbolic checks to both teams and department leadership last week. This was a great opportunity to return some of our tournament income to the community and demonstrate our appreciation to the military, police and first responders who keep us safe.
