I'm with Joe Falco. Thanks for the updates, rattlesnake. Great reporting!!  I love hearing about the Brunswick Euro Challenge.  Sounds like Bohn, Rash, and Hess are making America proud!

I think we need to get back on point, which is fawning over "Big Hess" and everything Brunswick.  I miss the updates on how well he is doing, what he ate for dinner, and whether or not he likes being stalked.

Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.  Funny stuff right there.

Hey Brick, don't you think Joe Falco's idea to have snake post some video would be a great idea as well?

Can't wait for today's update!

Yes Bryce, Brickguy, and Joe Falco (and Monster Pike too).....I agree with you all!

I think it's very admirable that rattlesnake is a dedicated fan of Brunswick and this regional bowler Tom Hess.  I also want to extend my personal thank you's to the OP for providing us these valuable updates from Brunswick Euro Challenge.  It's like having an on-the-ground reporter from Germany.  Awesome!

Sounds like Sean Rash was killing it yesterday.  And that Hess, he's something.  The PBA needs more classy guys like this to represent the sport!

I can't wait either for that next update, rattlesnake.

In other sports and their respective message boards, there are guys that make posts about their favorite bowlers all the time for everything they do.  They're called fans.  People do want bowling to be more like a sport right?  In sports, their athletes actually have fans (even annoying ones).  If the guy is a genuine fan then hey, more power to him.  Post away brother!

How rewarding it is to see some of these posters interested in Brunswick Euro Challenge.  Thanks to all the positive posts.

Big Hess in the last group today so no results to pass along just yet.  But he posted on his Facebook that he's feeling good both mentally and physically heading to the stretch run.  I have some live streaming going in order to watch the last group roll today.

Should be an exciting couple of final days!

UPDATE!  HUGE UPDATE!

They literally just finished the first session this morning in Germany and Big Hess was the #1 American in this morning's session, rolling a 6-game total of 1323, nipping fellow American Jake Peters who came in at 1321.  PBIII was 3rd with a 1263.

Big Hess is a rock star over in Germany!  Congrats to the entire Brunswick team!

It is great to hear that Tom Hess is doing great. I believe that Brunswick keep Tom Hess around for quite some time. I bowl in same league as Tom Hess a while back and he is a different bowler now then at that time. rattlesnake keep posting more.
I hate ten pins but love the game of bowling with just the right ball to take them out.

If "by storm" you mean finishing 74th, mission accomplished!  Well done.  Make sure you don't cherry pick what you post, fan-boy.

BOWLGNUT.....thanks for the personal message.  Will get you more info.

JOE FALCO.....I'll look to post some video although last time I posted a Big Hess 300 video, the haters came out.

Big Hess' 74th was for one 6 game set.  And even that was out of 350+ bowlers from around the world.  He fared very well other days.  Still was one of the top Americans.  All impressive.

The Brunswick team rocks!

So.... Tom Hess didn't make the cut?!?!

He finished 7th out of 20 American bowlers.  Most of the bowlers he beat were military members based in Germany.  He did beat Liz Johnson and Tim Mack so I do give him credit there. 

But for those other Brunswick/DV8 fans, Ronnie Russell takes first along with the 15,000 euro first prize.  Better convert that money quick Ronnie before the euro falls through the crapper.
