I should mention that the last year I competed was on The Australian International Challenge was in 2014. Ironically on the American team of five I placed 3rd behind James Clark 1st, Jack Freeman 2nd and it is good to hear that they are still going strong. The American team that year was 2nd behind those Aussies. For those that are not familiar with that contest it is a team competition of 5 of the best cutters in that country with a 3 stone entry that draws the best cutters from around the world. Our competition now draws cutters worldwide as well which was not the case before 2014. A few maybe but not like it is now which is good for the USFG.
