SSDeV impressioning games 2011

Jos Weyers got another notch on his guitar. He won the German impressioning championships in Hamburg yesterday. For those who know Jos this will not come as a surprise. And right after Jos came Arthur Meister. Arthur is as steady as Jos, just a fraction slower. And after six locks this adds up.

Jord Knaap turned out to be the surprise. Before this weekend he barely impressioned a lock, but after an evening of practice with the ‘meisters’ he managed to get into the finals and open all six locks. Scoring a solid third place!

Impressioning heavyweights Oliver Diederichsen and Dr. Manfred Bâlker became fourth and fifth.

There was a time it was unthinkable to have a non-German people win these games, let alone the top three contain two Duchies πŸ˜‰

I knew I was not likely to end in the top three in this competition (due to lack of training) and scored a sixth place.

Thanks everybody for a great weekend!

    Woohoo! Great job everybody! I knew Meister Jos could do it! But looking at the times, it must have been really nerve wrecking for both Jos and Arthurmeister. And Jord a third place.. wow! Very good. Indeed, half of the top-6 being from TOOOL that’s just fabulous.

    I have good hopes for you too Walter. Last time in Eindhoven you did pretty well πŸ™‚

    If anything, last time in Eindhoven taught me that having someone knowledgeable and patient to explain how impressioning works and what to look for, is key in becoming successful. Jord has benefited from that as well. Your lessons were excellent and maybe I should try to compete a bit more enthusiastically at LockCon! πŸ™‚
