Wow, the 23rd annual Funtastik Summer Classic Tournament is now chalked up 
into the history books.  The announcement was made that there are plans for a 
24th & 25th with the 25th being the last one.   So, let this be notice, that if 
you have always wanted to come to a Summer Classic and have not made it in the 
past 23 years, you have a 2 year deadline.

Competitors from across the USA and Canada played preliminary net matches on 
Saturday under cloud cover, thus no major sunburns this year!  A special thanks 
to Hall of Fame inductee, Vince Bradley for his tireless efforts overseeing the 
net and freestyle events.  Another Hall of Fame inductee, Dan Botkin juggled 
his time between playing net games, teaching how to sew footbags and treating 
everyone to his home grown goodies and flowers.  (Thanks Dan!!) 

The Hall of Fame Ceremony on Sunday night inducted Vince Bradley, James 
Roberts, Martin Cote and Dan Botkin.  Randy Mulder was unable to attend, but 
was not forgotten.  Thank you to the present Hall of Fame members and to 
everyone else who attended this wonderfully super special event for honoring 
the history of Footbag along with the history and hard work of the inductees.

Sunday and Monday were picture perfect days, thus great for playing footbag.  
The Finals events on Monday started out with Jim Hankins outscoring Joe 
Solonoski to take first in the Master?s net event.  The crew from Montreal 
dominated the singles and double net events lead by JF Lemuix who claimed first 
place in singles and second place in doubles net with Hall of Fame member 
Martin Cote. (Welcome back Martin!!!)

 The skills contests provided entertainment besides highlighted the great golf 
shots necessary to win Superman and Ironman.  Newly inducted Hall of Fame 
member and first time Summer Classic participant, James Roberts, did not take 
home any footbag titles, but he was deemed ?King of Duel?.  The celebrity 
judges for Service Poaching were tempted with bare chests and a strip tease, 
but to no avail.  Jamie Lepley?s Chunky Monkey was a crowd pleaser, but Erroll 
Styker dominated with his consistent top scores.  As Hall of Fame members, 
Steve Goldberg and Peter Irish were part of the finals freestyle judges? panel, 
the crowd was treated to a super freestyle show which included two dropless 
finals routines by Ken Somolinos and David Clavin. 

Lots of money and merchandise prizes were awarded after which came the 
heartfelt farewells.  Many people enjoyed the food, beverage and fellowship at 
the Appalachian Brewery for a few hours followed by those competitors leaving 
on Tuesday, converging for a party/sleepover at the tournament directors? house.

A BIG thanks goes out to our staff, who we totally appreciate and could not do 
without- Vince Bradley, Rob McCloskey, Jack Lentz, PJ Daigle, Jamie Lepley, 
Julian Solonoski & Kama Peck.  A huge THANKS goes out to our sponsors- 
Funtastik, Jack Lentz, World Footbag Association, Vince Bradley, Pro Kicker,
