September 2007

            The PAC World Championship at Mohegan Sun was a super event.  The talent there was  incredible.  To watch John Brzenk come in at 197lbs and enter two classes was amazing.  In the 199+ he came back from the loser bracket to defeat  Jerry Cadorette and Marcio Barboza. 

He then had a tough match with Ron Bath who beat John  twice and went on to win the Supers.  Ron Bath looked the best I have seen in some time.  He defeated Cadorette, Barboza and John Brzenk.  Congratulation Ron and all the other competitors that made this year's event so great.  Everyone was waiting to see Allen Fisher and Roman Tsindeliari.  Last year Allen took 1st and Roman took 2nd.  This year was just the opposite with Roman beating Allen twice to capture 1st place.  Our own Ron Klemba took 3rd behind Fisher in this class.  Ron also took 2nd in the Left Open, 1st in the Right & Left Masters.  Norm Devio took 1st in Masters & Grand Masters.  Mohegan Sun has invited PAC back next year and they are talking about signing a 3 year deal. The tournament will be aired mid December.  The full results are posted on the new PAC website:   and also on the IAF site and the Northeast Board.  Check out the new PAC site.
