Mr. Bockler’s Commentary
This, I believe, is the first-ever tournament put on by Mr. Duke. I would be delighted to take students to this event. Five years ago, Mr. Duke brought a contingent of students to our first-ever tournament, and did so when we held two more after that. There is nothing more I’d like to do than be able to help return the favor.
Personally, the character of Mr. Duke is unparalleled. He was one of the first to help my family after the tornado devastated several of their homes on Nov. 17, 2013, bringing an abundance of T-shirts and chotchkies for the kids, among other things. His students are lucky to have such a good person as an instructor.
Let’s help Mr. Duke have a successful tournament!
