OC Classic 2019 Tournament Wrap-Up

2019 OC Classic Tournament Results

1st: Richard Balta (48pts) 23.26 lb YT tie break
2nd: Scott Blumer (48pts)
3rd: Paul Romanowski (44pts)
4th: Christos Dodi (43pts)
5th: Ryan Deuel (35pts)

We’d like to personally thank all those who competed & helped to support our organization. Of the 103 competitors, the top 5 overcame the horrible visibility & dry kelp paddies to secure their spots on the podium. The first and second place finishers both came in with a total of 48 points, but Richard Baltas 23.26 lb yellow tail was the larger fish and tie breaker! Richard Balta is a tremendous athlete and won the Los Angeles Fathomiers Scramble meet the prior Saturday.

We’d also like to give a special mention to Christos Dodi for weighing in the first ever Blue fin tuna (35.94lbs) at an OC Classic tournament.

The Jackpot winners also went home happy earning some extra money & gear from our awesome sponsors.

The Raffle was insane thanks to all of our incredible sponsors & earned the club much needed funds to push forward our upcoming club trips.

We’d like to give a huge shout out to Petros Charalambos Yiannikouros & Spear America for hosting the tournament and donating some incredible prizes! There is no better dive shop or person. Get over to Spear America and support our local dive shop. To make things better Spear America will Match or Beat any retailer or online shops price.

What an amazing event! Until 2020
