Harold Timber

1983 17th Annual World's


Harold Timber, the Glacial Lakes Regional Champion, placed his name in the record book and took home the $25,000 first-place check as the 1983 World's Champion. Fred Drexel, the 1980 champion was second; Fred Wieland, the Shriners Regional Champ, took third place, fourth went to the Sierra Nevada Champ Darrel Beller and fifth was Santos Menchaca, the Nevada State Champion.
