Here are Vic holding 9-0850[The Licido Burst]Hank with 9-0291[The North Carolina Burst]and Jim S. with 0-0627[The Gruhn].To the left of Vic you can see 9-1891 and on the right -all 4 stages of the Goldtop.Mike B.Photo by my buddy hank who talked me into putting this in a new thread since everyone is tired of The Burst That Got Away and do not check in to it like they used to.So here is a new one for the book signing.Mike B.

Vic is a class act- and a killer git player. He is the premier ambassador of this thing we love. Looking forward to getting together for dinner this summer Mike.
