Dahl-Goldfeder win Average Joe
We held the Essex Paddle club’s installment of the ‘Average Joe’ tournament on November 11, and it was a fun day for all entrants. Highlights include:
- The draw included teams from 6 area clubs, including Newport, Pound Ridge, Garden City, Stonington, New Haven, and Essex. The event has become a bit of a ‘reunion’ for many!
- At the risk of jinxing the 2018 event, our consecutive streak of great weather continued, as we enjoyed a clear and crisp day.
- Several members of the Essex club made significant contributions to the event’s success!
The draw was generally balanced and most matches were very competitive. The results were as follows:
- Eric Dahl and Rich Goldfetter topped Evan Smith and Kenny Brodin in the main draw.
- Mike Carr and John Chatilon survived Joe Trausch and Fred DeGrooth in the Consolation;
- Kevin Burke and Dave Rogers beat Bill Robinson and Trevor Harlow in the 1st Reprieve;
- Michael Halperin and John Bauman beat the Winnitzkis (father and son) in the Consolation Reprieve.
