Dahl-Goldfeder win Average Joe

  • 11/12/2017
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:

Tournament Directors Chris Whelan and Eric Dahl


  • 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.
