Hard to believe it is that time again … TCABT-VI takes place on October 1st, 2016 in Maple Grove, MN, at the home of Darrell Skogen.  23 APBA fanatics will take aim at the October Championship trophy, currently being held by Mr. October himself, Leroy Arnoldi.  Leroy has won each of the 2 October championships, managing the 1954 Giants (in 2014) and the 1937 Yankees (in 2015) to October championships.  This time, Leroy will make his run at a 3rd October championship with the 1977 Phillies.  Defending April Champion, Kevin Cluff, a two-time winner of the April Championship (1927 Yankees and 2011 Rangers), will be looking for his 3rd TCABT championship, bringing the 2010 Twins club with his original standard issue tiny APBA dice.

TCABT-VI features 3 APBA Hall of Famers in attendance:  1st time attendees, Roy Langhans and Jim Sce, and regular attendee Kevin Cluff.

The number of “out-of-state” attendees includes the following 8:

  • Roy Langhans (Cockeysville, MD) – 1st timer
  • Jim Sce (Burbank, CA) – 1st timer
  • John Kalous (Shiloh, IL) – 1st timer
  • Steve Ryan (Harrison, TN) – 1st timer
  • Ron Emch (Toledo, OH) – 3rd tourney
  • George Adams (Kansas City, MO) – 3rd tourney
  • Craig Christian (Eau Claire, WI) – 5th tourney
  • Jeff Boeding (Platte City, MO) – 6th tourney

The 23 total attendees for TCABT-VI will match last October’s TCABT-IV attendance … we had 30 at TCABT-V last April.  The trend has been for the April tourney to out-draw the October tourney.  But sometimes the smaller number is alright.
