Putting on a tournament is a community effort. The Golden Gate Classic wouldn't be possible without the work and contributions of all the people on this page.

The committee wishes to extend its utmost gratitude and appreciation to Richard Perez. Richard – "Chewie" to his friends – has been part of the Golden Gate Classic for more than a decade, the last few years of which he served as Director, including our first year back post-pandemic!
At IGBO Annual 2023, Richard was elected IGBO Treasurer. That's a big job, so it means stepping away from any work with the tournament. (It also means he'll get to bowl again!)
Chewie, thank you for all you do, have done, and continue to do for the tournament and for IGBO. And good luck in February!
