Governor’s Dominoes Tourney set for Tuesday


Special to The Sun

OKLA. CITY — Teams representing the state’s seven Veterans Centers will face off in this year’s annual Governor’s Dominoes Tournament. The event will begin at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday in the Governor’s Large Conference Room at the state Capitol.

Each year, the Veterans Centers host tournaments that ultimately crown a champion veteran domino team from each location. Those teams then face off in a one-day competition at the Capitol.

The winning team will then go on to compete against the duo of former Gov. George Nigh and Secretary of Veterans and Military Affairs Gen. (Ret.) Rita Aragon, of Edmond.

Nigh started this annual tournament more than 30 years ago.
