Ice Breaker 2017
September 9, 10, Chanhassen, MN. We had a good time with a 2 day battle, pictured are Sunday’s battlers: Bob (Warspite), Tyler (Barham), Andy (Barham), Mike (North Carolina), Matt (Iron Duke), Rick (Jamaica), Randy (Glorie), McCoy (Tourville). At one point we did also have Peter (Kaiser), Zach (Invincible). We mixed and matched teams, several of us had beat up hull skin still on our ships from Nats so the sinks were frequent. Plus as per true Port Polar Bear style we slugged it out at very close range which is reflected by the 34% combined accuracy.
July 10-14. Ionia, Michigan. We forgot to take a group PPB picture! However Bob (Warspite), Tyler (Barham), Andy (Barham), Mike (North Carolina), and Zach (Invincible) were there. Once again we took home some hardware: Best of class 5 (Tyler), Individual combatant (Tyler)
March 11, 12. Boutte Louisiana. Pictured above Mike (North Carolina), Tyler (Barham), Bob (Iron Duke) made the long drive from Minnesota to Boutte Louisiana for the 9th Brouhaha. Tyler won most feared Allied. Bob was the winning Admiral. Mike got best of Class 6. Luckily Mike had arranged to fly home so there was extra room in the car for all that hardware!
June 20-24, Bradford, PA. Pictured above Tyler (Barham), Bob (Warspite), Mike (NC), Zach (Invincible) are the Port Polar Bear captains that made the trip to Nats this year, all in Allied boats. Essentially the Allies were flooring the Axis in a way that was not fun. As such on Tuesday Tyler and Bob (as well as Tom in his QE) were flipped to the Axis team. The battle was much closer at that point but the Axis managed to win on paper. However as this did require the trade of 3 of the more experienced battlers, I’d say the Allies really won. Notable awards: Von Fleugal – Tyler, Best of Class 5 – Tyler, Allied High Spirit Award – Mike.
