Having competed in all ten previous Grand Crystal Beaver events, I along with tournament director Bill Davis noticed that each event had been won by a different competitor.

I had won the 2nd annual event in an exciting final over Nack Ballard at DMP in 2000 and along with nine other solo winners, wondered if anyone would ever win for a second time.

Former winners Kent Goulding, Paul Weaver, Kit Woolsey, Bob Zavarol, Rich Lloyd and Howard Markowitz didn't compete in the 2009 contest so that left it up to Sean Garber, Ray Fogerlund and myself to see if any of us three, could get past the other 13 competitors in this four round tournament.
