Prudhomme Wins Fourth GNCC Calling Title of Weekend
NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Mark Prudhomme had the best weekend of his already spectacular calling career.
The Georgetown, S.C., caller won the GNCC Champion of Champions Division Feb. 16 for his fourth victory in five events at the 2013 NWTF Convention and Sport Show.
"I never expected anything like that," said Prudhomme. "There are so many great callers here."
Earlier in the weekend, Prudhomme won the owl hooting, gobbling and team challenge events. Prudhomme's only stumble came in the Senior Division, when call malfunctioned.
