A Jousting we will go ...

Ivanhoe had a successfull return to WBC after a two year hiatus, setting an all-time attendance record with 38 would-be Jousters competing for the coveted single Trial wood.

We had a steady turnout for each heat with four games going each night. All it took to make the semifinals was to appear Friday morning at 9 AM, which seemed to be a harder task than surviving the competition. 17 jousters were able to make the early morning wake-up call. To assure a 5-man Final we broke into three games of 3 and two games of 4. With no multiple heat winners it was wide open as to who would make the Final.

The Final was probably the shortest game of the entire tournament. To put it mildly it was a runaway win for Bob Titran. Congratulations to Bob for winning the championship as he left the rest of the finalists behind the galloping hoof beats of his noble steed. Bob won more jousts (4 chips) at the end of the game than all four of his opponents combined. Mark Love managed two chips to take 2nd place laurels, John Ponike sneeked in a chip good for 3rd place, while Carol Haney and Steve Scott were still trying to mount their steeds when they realized Bob had already won.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank our anonomous sponsor, whose generous contribution to the coiffers of the WBC allowed us to hold the Ivanhoe tournament. Hopefully he(or she) won't be needed next year as I'm sure ALL OF YOU will vote to include Ivanhoe in the century for next year. Or at the least maybe we can make trial status again. So, THANKS AGAIN TO OUR SPONSOR - we had a great time.
