The "old timers' stories retold every year at our parties are more than worth the cost of our camp!
Ask Art to tell you a few stories about the Canadian tournaments. . . or the evening at John Hancock Hall where he had a 2x2 pole broken over his arm. (my brother -who is a master carpenter- examined the pole before the tournament and told me, after hitting a radiator with it, that the pole will break an arm before being broken)
It took five swings by a very strong helper, before that pole "splintered". . . It never did break entirely, but shredded! I have a photo somewhere, caught with perfect timing when the pole bent and gave up!
Art should have fired the guy who bought the pole!!!
