Did it mention that the pic was of Dalton and Thibault msc.corp...I was looking for them...yea that's not them for sure. Looks like pic 16 would be the right one I think.

Regardless...pic 14 guy looks like he's having a riot! Literally...he's having a hoot so he's definitely found his sport like mine gets me happy which is skiing.

How's Thibault doing today anyways? Guess Dalton centered a blow pretty good eh!

What happened to Pat Kelly? I didn't see his name in the results.

Pat Kelly's bout was scrapped when his opponent came in 13lbs over weight. Results for the event can be found on
