STEVE WENNSTROM kicked off the new season in fine style! First place AND 1st and last CHICKEN!
ERIC MATTHEWS didn't do too shabby either.
Second place AND he grabbed the DIRECTOR'S AWARD (22-hand)
GENE DAVIS was just out of the money, so he got to claim the SKUNK POT quarters
The new DIRECTOR'S AWARD will be a 23-hand.
