Cool Stellar people and fun at the 2009 SBO Classic!-Official Photo Thread-Check it!

The 2009 Spear Wars Blue Storm Tournament series first event was the SBO Classic. The tourney ran smoothly and was fun............thanks to everyone involved!

See the cool weigh-in photos here at this thread:

http://www.spearboard.com/showthread.php?t=84361

Gaze at the 2009 SBO Classic Official results right here:

http://www.spearboard.com/showthread.php?t=84288

Lastly, here are the images shot by Len Pepe (Gradyman) of the venue, exhibitors, and people. I will put up the Awards Ceremony photo thread soon.

Thanks Len!

Check out Len's website for your photography needs here - http://www.studiolens.com/

PS - Len was unable to work his exposure and color correcting magic in photoshop with some of these images because he was using my Nikon D300 camera. But the uncorrected shots still look great in my opinion.

ENJOY the photos!

Thank you and all other sponsors!

Sponsors like Spearotek, Scuba Works, Mako and others were represented there. For an outdoor facility, the Rotary Pavillion is top notch. Here are more people shots.
