The CFCL Owners of 1999

Pictured from left going back: Paul Zeledon (Da Paul Meisters), Steve Donalson (Steve's Slackers), Ken Welch (Welch's Flatfeet - hunched over), Matt Bentel (Door Matts), Rich Bentel (Dem Rebels).
Pictured right back coming to the front: David Mahlan (David's Copperfields), Dave Holian (David's Ruffins), Kelly Barone (Six Packs and eventual 1999 CFCL Champion), Dave Goetz (ForGoetzMeNots), Eric Lamb (Lambchops).

No "official" league photo in 1999.  David was able to capture this off the video he took.  The Six Packs won their first and only CFCL Championship in 1999.  This was also our last year at ten owners.  At the end of the 1999 season the Slackers and Flatfeet would resign.

The draft took place at the home of Dem Rebels in Aurora, IL.  At this draft we tried a "Kangaroo Court" wherein owners would be fined for things like forgetting who we were bidding on, what the bid amount was, etc.  Host Bentel was fined because there was no nearby food place that could deliver lunch.  Kelly Barone was in charge of the fining process.  The lack of a catered lunch must not have caused too much hardship on Kelly considering he won the damn league.

The most unique and egregious fine levied on this day was to the ForGoetzMeNots for ACTUALLY FALLING ASLEEP DURING THE DRAFT!
