One Reply to China “Four Nations” All-Tournament Teams
Carl: First, let me thank you for all the wonderful pictures you have posted, almost makes me feel like I’ve been to China! In fact, you may have saved me a trip! 🙂 Was wondering, is there any way for us to get a tape of the game where Hunter Williams scored 15 points? (I’m Hunter’s Mom) Just wondering, I’d be glad to compensate someone from the effort to provide a zip drive, or DVD–or however that’s “transmitted” no adays? Please let me know, thanks SO MUCH again!! Diana Williams
