The Raleigh News and Observer

 Incredible weekend!   
Excellent turnout and great support from our local Bonzini U.S.A. players group, The Powerkick Team. I first want to thank Chris Bothe and Rob Atha for making the trip to Raleigh for this event. We had many first time Bonzini U.S.A. tournament event participants and they were fortunate to be able to see some high level play from the old and new generation of foosball players. Rob Atha and Bruce Nardoci put on a good singles performance in the finals of the winners bracket with most all games going to meatball. Rob staged a final game comeback, being down 4-3 in the 5th game to take the winners side in OS. Rob cruised to victory by downing Rick Owens in the finals. In Open Doubles, Nardoci put the lock down on opposing forwards, as he and Alan Cribbs came through the elimination bracket to double-dip Jim Parris and Mack Smith in the final of OD. The Ladies division saw Dallas Corbett continue to improve her play to take top honors in Singles and a nice 2nd in Doubles. Ladies Doubles title went to Lisa Tolley (Winston-Salem girl) and Doris Little from Virginia Beach. Doris continued to take home the trophies by teaming with Rick Owens to win Open Mixed. Goalie War Champion, Jim Parris, did a double-dip on Bruce Nardoci in the finals. Novice Singles title went to Mr. Robbie Patterson, from the SVFA, as he had a double-dip victory title match also.
Novice Doubles saw another Powerkick team as guru; John Lewis and Alan Watkins keep the hardware in Raleigh. In the 2800 Limited event, another Powerkick home team of HH Han*** and Andy Petesch grabbed the top spot. Expert Singles title went to Newport News, VA native, Sam Crockett.
Good to see Randy Hicok back home in NC.
Bryan Jones, thanks for trying out your first Bonzini U.S.A. event. Hope to see you in Wilmington, NC this October.
Chris Bothe, we'll definitely hook you up with a Bonzini table and I'll get up to OH to play a little in the near future.
Rob Atha, you continue to amaze me with not only your skill level, but the manner and professionalism you bring to the game. I appreciate you making the trip and wish you the best of luck in Las Vegas this weekend.
Dallas Corbett, great play this weekend. I thoroughly enjoyed our Mixed event. Maybe next time, we'll hit the big points in our match.
Pat Ryan and Kenny Kniceley, thanks for the officiating duties and protecting the integrity of the game by explaining to our newbies why certain rules are in place. You both helped our group of new players accelerate their learning curve. Plus it allowed me to play and complete in 2 events and that hasn't happened in a long time. Thanks again.
Jim Waterman thanks for the insight to the U.S.T.S.F. and the I.T.S.F. I look forward to working with you in the near future with the U.S.T.S.F.
Powerkick Team, 100% per admiration for your efforts. The pride and work put forth for this event was extraordinary and noticed by the representative of the V Foundation. Thank you for setting new standards for the Bonzini U.S.A. tour events.
Total cash payout: $2,722.00
