Our coverage of the US NSA Event in Lakeside OH has generated more than normal feedback!!! No doubt the feedback was stimulated by the several postings we have had on the event.
Bob Jones said this: For two incredible days, fans in the crowded grandstands discussed strategy and “oohed and aahhed” as they enjoyed the high level of competition and camaraderie. Underdogs Tom Winkelspecht and Greg Jones ran the daunting gauntlet and emerged as champions and earned their national pin. In their semi-final and finals, they recovered from a lopsided first game loss to win close second and third games.
In the third game of the finals, playing against seven time winners Bob Sudomir and Chris Cermak, both teams in the mid 50’s, court with a 3-7 inch drift, Greg made a championship worthy shot as his hammer went between two high blocks separated by 7 inches and made a 15 point double by hitting his own disc on the 8-8 line. At the foot, Tom calmly made the winning hammer.
