Black Hands Crush J Boys in the 1st. Annual copper Cup classic.
T he first copper cup invitational was hosted by the J Boys this year at the Eastern National Rendezvous in "By God "West Virginia. The competition was fierce as the Black hands grasped hold of the lead early in the week and the J Boys fought back with intense rivalry. The games brought out some of the worlds best participants ! Athletes traveled from all around the United States to compete for "Top Gun", some leaving loved ones behind just so they could participate. Three grouling events were played in which participants labored to shoot and throw their very best. After day one Rich "Hawk" Stephens and Jerry" Dead Eye " Newman locked horns, but Newmans' hard work and determination would soon be squelched.
Tomahawk match was intense. Many competitors fell by the wayside during this
event. "Bud" Pritchard's performance was disappointing and
definitely not his usual polished execution. The same with Joe"Kept man
"Cramers style.Jim "HIGHBALL"Holmes fared well while " Blue
Ribbon" Pell was pushed aside and tromped by rival "Blue Eyes"
"Bubba Pup "Suchora had some trouble warming up and the Black Hand women fared poorly in the knife and Hawk portion of the competition. Rob" Pretty Boy "Park was holding onto second by the end of the day, while Hawk and Newman still fought for first.It was still too early in the week to tell who might rise from the ashes to push his or her way to victory. Linda"Annie Oakley"Best.was coming from behind while Indian Phil fought his way through the ranks resting at the top of the pack.Todd and Dave were still trying to push their way through but by now the line was impenetrable
By day three many competitors would doubt they could fight their way through the crowd to rise to the top but all were still eager to try. Hawk was out of the gate with a strong start and hadn't missed a target in what was said to be an impossible course to ace. He was up to target 17 with still no misses.He took steady aim on an impossible target and .........ANOTHER HIT. IS there no stopping this man???Number 18 ..............a smaller closer target...............Will he hold true? YES another hit. One more to go . HE studies the last target and adds a bit more powder to his load........takes aim on a far target ......squeezes off the trigger and YES HE HAS DONE IT! A perfect score on an un ace able course. Pretty Boy ROB comes in right behind him with 18 and the rest of his team scores in the top teens. This shoots the Black Hands towards the top of the page but the J Boys are still breathing down their necks. Kim Best does his Best and finishes towards the top with his impressive performance.
The first copper cup invitational is a success. The team captains followed by the rest of the teams drink a toast from the Copper Cup and look forward to next years games.
The last day the scores are announced and no
one has a total to be ashamed of.
Next year Rumor has it that top prize is FRANK ,s HOUSE Rifle . Start practicing Boys.
