Where there is a Will, there is a Way, and a Cory, Bob and Chris

2013 US National Champions: 4:38 Team Total
(L-R) John Granby, VP Lion, Cory McGee, Chris Finkes, Bob Russell, Dr. Paul Davis
Whiteman Air Force Base, a self-funded team of three pulled off a surprise here in Montgomery Thursday. 

Cory McGee, Bob Russell and Chris Finkes drove 12 hours in a mini-van- a precient move as we’ll see at the end of this sentence- camped in a tent for $5 per night at the local air base and crushed the competition to take home the Lion Trophy (aka “The Granby”). 

Having lost virtually every bit of funding, they made it happen anyway. 

Congratulations to our 2013 National Champions!

Slept in a tent, are you kidding me. Next time they need to contact Chief Jordan, I am sure he could make arrangements to accomodate theses guys for a few days. I had a blast and these three guys are fierce competitors, my hats off to them.
