Mary Hickey reports on the 2012 ABT Pittsburgh Labor Day Backgammon Championships held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on August 30 through September 3, 2012.
Steve Hast emerged from retirement to run the Pittsburgh tournament, since last year's director Rob Maier decided to hang it up after three years running the Pittsburgh ABT event. He was assisted by former Indiana directors Butch and Mary Ann Meese, his old school chum Jeff Sutker, Rachel Pampino, Janeen Bost, and his son Ryan. Steve has never been out of the picture regarding this event, since he assisted Rob during the years that he ran it, and his son Ryan was also on hand last year to help out with the always-popular hospitality suite. This year it was Rachel who kept the food coming nonstop throughout the weekend. Smart idea, keeping a large pack of restless animals well fed!
