Tough Day for a Norris

The 7th event saw a 7th different winner and there is no question that parity is alive and well on the Strike King Ever-Bloom Tournament Trail.

It was a bright, warm, bluebird day and one Norris needed a few ounces to overtake another one on Lake Bloomington and the 7th Strike King Ever-Bloom Tournament Trail. Which Norris took home the gold? Which Norris needed the weight of one paperclip. Did the old man beat the youngster or did the youngster prevail?
