2013 Florida Open All-Age Championship
Thanks to Tom Word who encouraged me to come down to Florida. I got to see some wonderful performances on the stellar grounds of E. L.“Ted” Baker’s Chinquapin Farm. Happily Ted had the pleasure of witnessing the great winning performance of his own Chinquapin’s Reward expertly handled by Slade Sikes with the aid of his scout Mark Haynes.
Some of the photos I took during the several days I was in attendance can be viewed at Chris Mathan Photo (Galleries > Florida Championship). They will be moved to our Photo Galleries page to accompany Tom Word’s upcoming short history of the Florida Open All-Age Championship. New photos of the Chinquapin Farm grounds have been added to Field Trial Grounds.
I video-taped the Announcement with my i-phone. It can be found on Strideaway’s YouTube page.
