Thumbs up 2012 OFFICIAL Photo Thread - Top 20 Winners + A Prize Wall to be Remembered!

One super thing about the Big Bang! Open is the colossal number of prizes we have displayed on our prize wall. Sponsors appreciate having their prizes showcased like this for the crowd to see and touch.

Len Gradyman took plenty of photos of the prizes, so here is a thread dedicated to just that plus the top 20 winners which is our dividing line before Mystery Winners commence.

An old spearing friend named Bret Wally once told me years ago that the number of guns on a spearfishing tournament prize table is a big measure of success. We had something like 45 guns in our treasure for the contestants to pick at.

Don't forget to see the next round of photos after you view these pics here in this thread. The next round is located at:

Re: 2012 OFFICIAL Photo Thread - Top 20 Winners + A Prize Wall to be Remembered!

Tony the prize table looked insanely awesome and if I wasnt committed to capt school that weekend I would have loved to have shot for a trip to that prize "WALL". Thanks for creating a tournament of this magnitude and hosting it right here in my backyard. Next year I plan to be up there claiming my own prize!

A Big Thanks Tony for another great tournament. The weigh in staff and facilities can't be beat you have a great crew! I also want to thank Jon at Ulusub spearguns for donating the the gun I was lucky enough to win, just have to decide on what size to get.
Thanks again for a great weekend! Already thinking about next year.

Chip, take a look at the Ulusub Louis had built as his prize from last year's tournament. In my opinion it is the perfect gun for our area and style of diving. Plenty of mass and a shape that gets the bands perfectly in line with the shaft to manage recoil when powered up, but tapered forward for a low profile front end that swings easily. Jon builds a top notch gun and you will not be disappointed!
