    I just took a peek at the scoresheet and we have a commanding lead. Breaking for lunch. Robin Berry is up next, she took second in worlds and is an extremely strong contender. James Clifton, a former world champion, cuts in the last slot. So too soon to say...

    Nathan keeps leaving details out, so I will have to do my own sleuth (sloth?) legwork!

    This event is taking place in TN today (9/28). CPK is also a sponsor for Bladesports (one of the main dozen or so!) Voila:

    Hope Jo gets it!

    Hey, for us CPK fans that don't track all the various events, why is Pigeon Forge a “grudge match?”
    Does it have to do with those hula shorts?

    No?! My bad! I remember Bennieboo and wanting to know about the coconut chopping prowess of the LC when the subforum was established way back in 2016. IIRC, he was in HI back then or I could've been high back then. None of these accounts are mutually exclusive or even partially inclusive :D

    I didn't know this till this morning when I saw this thread and started nosing around on the Interwebs to discover that Pigeon Forge is actually a town in TN.

    We just saw an amazing run from Gary Bond. Ben might be in trouble...

    James Clifton just had an amazing run. 10 seconds faster than the fast guys. Super fast. It's going to be really close.
