NPPL Huntington Beach 07 - Bob Long's Blast Wins

Bob Long's Blast takes down Impact in 3 games to win the NPPL Huntington Beach event. The first game ended in a stalemate, but Blast game back to win the next two in a row. Impact, who won the Semi Pro last year proved they belong in the pro division with their 2nd place finish in their first ever pro event. Expect great things from this team in the future as long as they stick together.

Dynasty extracted their revenge on Joy Division in the battle for 3rd and 4th place. Dynasty won both games back to back in a closely contested match. The way the finals field was set up had plenty of huge bunkers on the 50, with a massive snake protected by two large "car wash" bunkers. The abundance of huge bunkers led to a lot of evenly matched games.

Overall, Huntington Beach was a great start for the 2007 season. The event ran well, even though the league ownership changed hands recently.
