H2H Gong Show: a success
It’s all over in Sudsbury... Team Doug Hong won the trophy, with Team Rob Thomas taking the second event trophy over Neil Harrison; the third event saw T-Bay’s Mike Assad upend Frank McCourt and the “New Lunch Bucket” event was dominated by Terry Odishaw over Louis Biron.
Other highlights were some great music performed by Andrew Mercer, Mark Noseworthy, Tim Wright and... a fiddler! Highly entertaining from 2:00am until “whenever” each morning. Not to be outdone, Mercer and Joanne Taylor edged-out Chris Schille and Cherie-Ann Loder for the distinction of getting their names on a pair of very old raincoats. Whatever that means.
Also, DBZ apparently got a haircut during Harry’s Beach Party. Uh, great. In addition, three very excited people won tickets for the 2008 Men’s Worlds: the top fundraiser (Jimmy), a member of the organizing committee (Darlene) and the DBZ lead, Kari. All are very excited about the possibility of a week at the Worlds and then the 27th H2H in Sudbury!
The spiel raised $16,000 for the Heart and Stroke Foundation, and next year’s date is set for April 24-26. Early registrants who sign up before February 15, 2008 will go into a draw for a trip for two to Florida. Not bad.
