When I met Stan Russell back on December 17th he brought a couple patches with him. This Widowmakers patch was exciting because it represents the August 1988 team that competed in the PBGA Tournament at the Poconos Skirmish in New York.

The Widowmakers’ roster for the 1988 PBGA tournament included Earon Carter, Jessica Sparks, Dave Youngblood Dehaan, Marty Tripes, Jerry Braun, Jim “Howdy” McGuffog, Rick Taylor, Jim Lively, Sam Cadwell, Thunderpig,Rob ”Termite” Smith, Dave Arnold, Danny Weisel, John Platt, Ray McDonald and Robert ”Rosie” Rose.

I had thought that Jessica Sparks and Earon Carter created the patch specifically for this Tournament, which Stan did not attend. According to Stan, he, Earon, and their friend Wes Poate played as the Widowmakers in Southern California, in 1987-1988 as they worked as South Bay Arms.
