TH History - It was: Country vs. Country…

Thursday, February 15th, 2007 - By Sabre_in_Virginia

Sabre_in_VirginiaTH History - It was: Country vs. Country, City vs. City, and Player vs. Player. It was Round 3 of the “2nd Annual Burlington International”, Canada, 1978.

Twenty-nine players began this tournament: Six from the States, twenty-three from Canada. By Round Three, sixteen players remained in the hunt for the Championship. The Americans made up only 20% of the total number of players in the tournament. However, of the original American contingent they lost only one player, 83% made it to Round Three. Of the original Canadian contingent, only 47% had advanced. The Canadians lost their four-to-one advantage in players. Attrition. Nonetheless, the Canadians still had double the Americans in quantity of players.


TH History - 1978, 2nd Annual Burlington Classic

Sabre_in_Virginia How good were the Americans back in the 1970s? Who were they? Where did they come from in the States? Who did they compete against in Canada? Are any of them still playing?

Let me digress a bit before I present and discuss the guys from America who ventured north of the border to compete. Let me tell you how I found this tournament. Remember, there was no Internet, no websites, no email, and no free long distance calling. It was a different time. I don’t wear my tight butterscotch background with red plaid bell bottom pants anymore. Things change right? Well, some don’t. Here we are thirty plus years later and we’re still playing table hockey. Oh, sure we don’t have to ask our moms if we can play, which we could after our chores were done. No, now we have to ask our wives….after some of the “honey-do / to-do” list has been worked off.
