Team Douvris at the Quebec Open

Team Douvris traveled to Quebec City this past weekend for our last big tournament before our National Championships later this month. We had a great time competing, enjoyed a spectacular night show, and even had time for a little bit of sight-seeing in Old Quebec on a very pleasant and sunny Sunday morning.
