FCC Semi-Pro Qualifier

Wrap Up

Thanks to everyone that came out on Saturday April 2nd, and helped make the first round of the FCC Semi-Pro Comp Series a huge success! The energy was high and grins were more contagious than the common cold as sixty competitors pulled, crimped, cranked and happily crushed their way up over 65 new problems. In the Citizen’s Competition, Dallas Hammonds, Carli Canata, Theresa Nielson, Portia Menlove, and Melissa Elson took first in their respective divisions for the ladies and Arbor Johansen, Mike Brinkerhoff, Jake Brunhart, Matt Fultz, and Ed DiBella claimed first place for the mens divisions.

After the Citizen’s Comp wrapped up it was time for Finals where the top five competitors from Men and Women’s Open divisions competed for their share of the $600 purse. With the crowd cheering them on, competitors gave it their all against the heinous final problems. Portia Menlove won first for the women with Cerre Francis and Meadow Wright taking second and third. Graham Hess won first place for the men with Jeff Richards taking second and Matt Fultz coming in third.

The Salt Lake Qualifier and Citizen’s Competition was the first of three qualifying events that will send the top ten from each event to compete in the FCC Semifinals Competition held in Salt Lake City in May.
