St. Patrick's Day styles

Bruce Baldwin and Summer Rifkah, Altoona PA

There was a lot of green in the playing areas Saturday as many players dressed for St. Patrick’s Day. Photos here show those who caught our attention.
Bruce Baldwin and Summer Rifkah of Altoona PA went all out with Irish-themed accessories on their heads, necks and even faces.

Patty Shaughnessy, Paoli PA

Patty Shaughnessy of Paoli PA had not just the vest and scarf but the name to match. “I should be on a pub crawl,” she said, instead of playing in the Gold Rush Pairs.
