Quote from tourney director Rick North: “Some great matches, Rich Durant and Ron had a few great battles leading Stilkey to comment ” Leave his thumb there Rich they will give you a trophy!!” Match of the day was a battle between Max and Frank Hirst in the straps. Frank usually a strapmaster fell to a very strong Max after a hard fought battle in the middle of the table!! Jerry C. looked unstoppable against all comers, including the much anticipated match against Eric Guevin. Jerry looked very serious when he faced Eric giving him no quarter!!
Thanks again to Baileys Pub, the new owner wants to do 4 a year there, and will try and get the “Gansett Girls” back!!
Special and heartfelt thanks to Mr. Badger Drewes for his hard work reffing!!!!
Thanks to all who attended and I look forward to the next one!!”
