Jason Connet from Wildomar Ca. flew out this morning to attend the U.S Amateurs being held in Florida. Jason is a member of the APA and currently plays in Temecula Ca. His League Operator is Kimberly Pankonin of Riverside APA. Jason plays several nights a week on several different teams. He captains on Saturdays a double jeopardy team, which has been to Nationals held in Vegas several years ago. That team is qualified for the Local Team Championships held next year in June 2015. Just this year he captained a Sunday team to Nationals as well. Jason also went with his Monday night team to Nationals back in 2009 just after he started playing with Riverside APA.
