The Spanish American Club, Inc. dominoes tournament was hosted Saturday, October 6, at the St. Lucie Lanes in Port St. Lucie.  Club member Ivan Guanill coordinated the event. The event produced enthusiastic participation by local dominoes players from Stuart, Port St. Lucie, Jensen Beach and Ft. Pierce.

The dominoes tournament features a double partner’s ration of 18 men and 10 women in 3 rounds per couple mix doubles play.  The entry fee was $15 for members and $20 for non members. Players were selected by lottery.  Finalists received a trophy for 1st and 2nd place.   All players played with rotation partners of 3 game for the classification of 200 points.  The championship game was played with 500 points.

The top four finalists for a final round of 500 points were: Hector Peña and José Echevarría who emerged as the men tournament winners and Daisy Alemán and Diana Colón for the women. Edgar López and Rubén Rodriguez won the split 50/50 raffle drawing.
