New World Lithobolos Champion

This year at the Rocknocker's Reunion in Barre Vermont Tomas Lipps editor of Stonexus magazine hoped to regain his title as champion of the annual international Stone Foundation lithobolos tournament. He came all the way from Santa Fe.
Reigning champion, yours truly, travelled from Toronto Canada to Barre too to defend his title against very stiff competition from all over Ontario, Quebec, Maine, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York, Vermont and Rhode Island.

We played some very exciting games in the specially built dry stone enclosed bocce court students constructed during the six day DSWAC dry stone workshop held during the 2008 symposium in Barre Vermont.
The thrilling final match resulted in Drew Samson, a landscaper and stone enthusiasts from South Berwick Maine becoming the winner and new lithobolos champion. Congratulations Drew. Now you have to drive many many miles to defend your title next year.
