This past weekend was the PAPA Circuit event in San Dimas, CA (home to Bill and Ted) called It Never Drains in Southern California. A fantastic name for sure, and there were nearly 100 competitors including many of the world’s top players. Here are a few photos from the competition (full gallery is archived starting here).
