Sportcast National Championships 2008

While the battle for first place was decided early on by some big casts by Tommy Farmer in less than ideal conditions , two new comers to the nationals, Troy Roberts and Ron Snell had a an event long dual for second place. Back and forth the lead between them seesawed all day until the last round when Troy hit a mighty cast of 738'. Ron wacked one out to 725. Again considering the lack of wind and high humidity and record setting New Jersey temperatures , all three can be very proud of those achievements.
Don Becker set a new record too ,travelling approximately 8000 miles to the event and Jersey drivers let him and all our southern friends know how happy the were to have them visit our State park "The New Jersey Turnpike".
We saw the return of the infamous Brooklyn Bomber himself Fernando Rivera.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all our fellow casters in Texas , who battled Ike on Friday .Thankfully Big Lou and Jerry were safe .

Sportcast would also like to thank Fishsticks4U who donated a CTS rod , it was won by Bob Sales who kindly gave it to Bill Halpin Sr for all his behind the scenes work in organizing the tournament in New Jersey, special thanks to Bob Collepardi for his chef skills with lunch.

The following results were posted by club president Bob Sales.
