We fielded two boards Wednesday night at the Red Lion, our third two-board session in four tries so far this season. There were no pear trees, but we did pick up a new Weasel in Jake Trotta’s Second City classmate Nicole Campbell and welcome back old friend Roland Cooke, who was in town on business. On a scale of one to five, I’d definitely give the evening five golden rings.
Game No. 320
Played in the Lion’s back room, Game No. 320 ended by time limit after the Fall 1906 turn in the following center counts:
Austria (Paul DiGiulio): 0; 0.000 points.
England (Roland Cooke): 10; 31.646 points.
France (Don Glass): 1; 0.316 points.
Germany (Jim O’Kelley): 6; 11.392 points.
Italy (Bryan Pravel): 1; 0.316 points.
Russia (Brandon Fogel): 3; 2.848 points.
Turkey (Nicole Campbell): 13; 53.481 points.
A regular on the traveling tournament scene since 2010, Cooke is a British national who lives in Houston. DiGiulio was playing in his second game ever, and Campbell, her first.
Game No. 321
Meanwhile in the boss’ booth, Game No. 321 also managed six years by the time limit. The final center counts in that one were:
Austria (Brian Shelden): 9; 32.400 points.
England (Karl Horcher): 4; 6.400 points.
France (Matt Sundstrom): 8; 25.600 points.
Germany (David Spanos): 0; 0.000 points.
Italy (Chris Kelly): 5; 10.000 points.
Russia (Jake Trotta): 8; 25.600 points.
Turkey (Christian Kline): 0; 0.000 points.
Horcher was playing in his second game ever. He and DiGiulio both were recruited by Spanos for his October house game.
