Hey everyone. The 18th annual Funtastik Summer Classic is now history and a wonderful memory. The 19th annual is already in the planning stages. We were really lucky to only have a 1.5 hour rain delay on Saturday. The weathermen called for showers and rain on Sunday and Monday, but it didn’t happen where we were. HURRAY!! There was great competition, many fun pickup games, shred circles, four square, a world record of 1.4 in Super Man by Greg Nelson and a dropless amateur freestyle routine by Nate Linscott in the final round. Pete Irish went dropless in the pro final round up until his last trick. The skills contests proved to be quite entertaining for the crowd and quite competitive for those entered. And oh those d*** golf shots. Better practice them for next year. Thanks to the service poaching celebrity judges, Brenda Solonoski, Lon Irish, Sam Conlin, Carol Wedemeyer and Val Davidson for their expertise. Thanks to the superman gladiators, Manu and Yves. I heard a rumor that Kenny Shults won a four square game. Can anyone confirm that? Dillon, Joe says you were the best music man he has ever had at a Summer Classic to date. You have the job for next year so tell Daryl and Sunny to make their plans accordingly. A novice freestyler, Vinny Iachini, was our youngest competitor at 9 years old. We hosted a Hall of Fame (HOF) Ceremony on Sunday evening at the Appalachian Brewing Co. It was a great setting for the event. Peter Irish was a great Master of Ceremonies. Thank you Peter. We would like to thank HOF Kenny Shults for his participation and assistance with the ceremony. Thanks to Greg Nelson, HOF Yves Archambault and to all the people that came to support and welcome inductees Joe & Brenda Solonoski, Jay Moldenhauer, Tim Vozar and Eric Wulff to the HOF. The Beaver Open, who hosted the West Coast HOF, called several times to do a combined toast, but had to be put on hold until Jay got through his years. Cheering loudly after a countdown, we had toasted the inductees and footbag all together around 9:40pm. This tournament would not be possible without the great staff and sponsors. Thank you to Vince Bradley, Rob McCloskey, Jack Lentz, Jamie Lepley, Garth Smith, Dave Garber, Dan Greer, Myron Selby, Julian Solonoski, Kenny Shults, Dylan Johnson, Steve Goldberg and Jennifer Selby. Thank you to all of you who pitched in to move tables, put up signs, count adds, etc. Thank you to our tournament sponsors Funtastik, Jack Lentz, World Footbag Association, Freedom Footbags, Harrisburg East Holiday Inn, Appalachian Brewing Co., Pro Kicker (Yves Archambault), Jamie Lepley, City of Harrisburg Parks & Recreation Department, Kendall KIC and Kenny Shults. Thank you to all the competitors and spectators who came to the 18th annual Funtastik Summer Classic. May you have a great year and we hope to see you again next year. 2003 FUNTASTIK SUMMER CLASSIC RESULTS AUGUST 30, 31 SEPTEMBER 1 PRO SINGLE NET 1. Emmanuel Bouchard. $350 2 Yves Archambault $150 3.
