Barry wins Friday Greasy Pole in third round

(Continued)

Barry did just that on his third and final walk.

The winning walk was about as flawless as a greasy pole walk can get. Barry got off to a perfect start, kept his balance through the middle of the pole and didn’t lose it all the way to the end.

“I got about five feet away (on the winning walk) and I said to myself, ‘This thing’s coming home with me,” the winner said. “There was no way I wasn’t going to get it on that walk.”

Most impressive was the fact that Barry was not only the winner, he was the only one to get close to the flag. There are usually plenty of close calls to go around in the greasy pole competition, but not this year. Barry was the only walker to get past the half way mark, and he did it twice, sending the fans on Pavilion Beach home early with a third round win.
