WAY TO GO CHRISTIAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh its the Oregon State.... U rule in portland!! Canadians are coming on as of late eh.. i think i remember posting 2 years ago that Canadians would b owning the pro division....

Can we get a report Christian?

Like tournout, key moments in matches etc?

Christian played awesome. He beat Ryan Harvey in a 5-game slamfest. it was a great match to watch. There were 18 entries in OS, and it truly was wide open. Impressive victory for sure.

The amateur dubs final featured your two reps vs our best kids...14 year olds. The kids won the first 2/3 set, but the Canadians took the last set easily for the W. They were giving a one point spot, which IMO was more than fair because neither of them were Am's, but we made an exception...and would have done it again. Way to go guys, great representation.

Well done,Andy,you beat two 14 year old children!!!

Author: RezaREX Reply #10 Posted: Nov 29 2010 7:06PM

Thanks guys. The tourny was tons of fun and we met some really awesome people down there (Isaac being one of many). Hopefully we can start a relationship between the NW and Alberta/BC players and get more representation at out respective tourny's.

As far as the tourny goes I think we were all fairly pleased at the end of the day. Saturday didn't go so well as we all had trouble adjusting to the tables and to new players at the same time but by Sunday I think we were more confident knowing what the styles were going to be. Congrats to Ben getting that first place finish I know you've been working hard for it and showed this weekend that you have the talent, brains, and confidence to get the job done. Thanks guys for playing doubles with me even though we came up short. OD was a tough field and in the no-pro we ran into a hot team of Randy and Mark who really played a solid mistake-free game.

The field for singles wasn't huge but it was definitely scary. Looking at the list of entries there were NO easy matches. There were 10-12 legitimate contenders before you even factor in any upsets. Last years winner Ryan Harvey and Washington State winner Justin Shaw were among the entries along with former champs Rick Martin and Jack Lenty. The Open Singles final and A side final I played against Ryan Harvey who I had only played once previously in doubles in Washington but man is that guy ever fast. He definitely pushed the pace and I tried to hang in with him and it ended up being one of the most fun singles matches I've ever played. The ball may have stopped moving for a brief moment during the 4th

Can't wait to see everyone again..........especially at the boom boom room.

"especially at the boom boom room. "

Just to venture a guess at an inside joke... is it the Elevator??

Author: hardboiled Reply #12 Posted: Nov 29 2010 8:54PM

Christian: Dude - I've never seen that level from a Canadian player before. Any canadian player.

Good on you

And good on Simon for beating Jack L. 3-0, sending him to the B-side early.

Most of all, many thanks to our hosts (Issac/Hutch et al) in Portland. they're welcoming and good people.

We'll see you again soon.

<boom boom room indeed. no need for the big bang, nor need to see stars really >

Was the tournament on Fireball or Tornado?

Author: Will Reply #14 Posted: Nov 29 2010 9:53PM

Tornado (some older versions also)

Author: S. Edwards Reply #15 Posted: Nov 29 2010 10:20PM

The thing that makes the tournaments in the Pacific NW is definitely the people. Mark and Rene, the owners of the Bull Mountain Bar and Grill made us feel at home from the time we arrived to the time we left. Hutch ran a great event, and made some tough decisions and stuck to his guns. That's integrity. He kept everything running smooth. Issac, great guy and promoter for foos. The players were all awsome and friendly in a competitive environment. Joeseph, my #1 fan thanks for your support even though you are a Flames Fan. Travelling with Christian, Ben and Andy was a Blast! I had a great time. And to the 4 people at the Boom Boom Room, well, hmmmm, thanks pretty much sums it up. To bad we didn't finish the turnip and porkchops.

This seems like a fitting thread for this. Congrats to Fred Gower for wimninh Open doubled in a tournament that had twice te tournout?! No 14 year old kids though in the finals i dont think. He also won forward shootout and the international cup for Canada. Proud moment for Canada.

( -.-)

Author: ButHeDoesntLookAsian Reply #17 Posted: Dec 4 2010 11:18PM

Actually, we had 23 Indian juniors. But anyone over 4 feet tall I put Ex-lax in their Chicken Tikka...

Author: ButHeDoesntLookAsian Reply #18 Posted: Dec 4 2010 11:34PM

For the International Cup, Team Canada was myself and Alberta's own Chris Norstrom. Chris was just voted most improved player in Shanghai and scored two sweet pull shots from the 2 rod at 4 in the morning to win the gold for Canada over a Team of U.S. semi pros working for Intel in North East China.

I am sure that your tournament had a lot better players. But I invited China and India this year. Next year maybe Russia too. I think that will put us over 3 billion people to draw from. We might need more than 4 tables - damn!!!

Ha ha.

Author: ButHeDoesntLookAsian Reply #19 Posted: Dec 4 2010 11:42PM

Didn't mean to hi hjjack. Good job all Canuckleheads in Oregon.

Andy when are you gonna send more flatlanders to visit us here in Shanghai? All your Chinese girlfriends here are looking for a Canadian passport...

Author: S. Edwards Reply #20 Posted: Dec 5 2010 12:59AM

Dave, you're such a chump. Can't wait to see you in Vegas.

Author: The Next One. Reply #21 Posted: Dec 5 2010 3:27AM

Haha any time sucka!!

Author: The Next One. Reply #22 Posted: Dec 5 2010 3:34AM

Author: Aged Whine & Cheese Reply #23 Posted: Dec 5 2010 4:30AM

Gentlemen. Why can't we all just get along?

Of course, this is with the obvious exception of Earl who is just intolerable at best.

Author: ButHeDoesntLookAsian Reply #24 Posted: Dec 5 2010 5:22AM

Either that or we could do a cage match for them.

Oh wait, that is Horton's schtick and not very Canadian!

Igloo match?

Hmmn, can't see in.

I've got it. Timbits eating contest! Can I get in on it?

But not Earl. He definitely is INTOLERABLE!!! Except when he is being super nice. Which is most of the time. Dammit...

Author: Superfly Reply #25 Posted: Dec 5 2010 5:47AM

Umm ... you want to eat Tim's bits ... yikes!!!

Author: Aged Whine & Cheese Reply #26 Posted: Dec 5 2010 6:35PM

I think Tim's bits might have something to say about that sort of competition.

Author: S. Edwards Reply #27 Posted: Dec 6 2010 12:23PM

>>Why u getting rylde up Simone? I was congradulating Fred lol. U have issues about sonething? Lol

just with your atrocious spelling.

Author: The Next One. Reply #28 Posted: Dec 6 2010 2:32PM

Sure buddy haha

Author: moyatielens Reply #29 Posted: Dec 8 2010 2:05AM

Congrats to Christian, he played great against Ryan in the finals.

I do have one question tho...

Simon, were calling Christian sweet??

Didn't know ya rolled like that. :p

Author: Aged Whine & Cheese Reply #30 Posted: Dec 8 2010 2:44AM

I did not want to out Simon by pointing out the "Sweet Christian" part but, since Mo has done it now, I can comment on it (not that there is anything wrong with that).

Author: S. Edwards Reply #31 Posted: Dec 8 2010 3:44AM

Moya, sorry I don't putt from the rough :-] It was Will that gave him the name

Author: moyatielens Reply #32 Posted: Dec 8 2010 7:22PM

Hahaha, that's funny. Wow, the difference a lil insignificant (or in this case, pretty significant) comma can make. Makes me wonder tho, if it was more Freudian than anything. :p
