BRANDON’S CARTER BUZZELL gets his competition face on in an age 5-and-younger bout during the armwrestling competition at Addison County Fair an Field Days on Friday. A total of 84 kids competed; Buzzell was third in his division.

NEW HAVEN — After several years competing in the armwrestling competition at the Addison County Fair an Field Days, Shawn Webber found his groove at the annual show of strength last week.
After earning a couple third-place finishes in 2017 and a couple seconds last year; this past Friday evening Webber pulled to four victories at the main show tent. He earned victories in the men’s right-handed 198-pound and 220-pound divisions, plus the men’s left-handed 198- and 220-pound divisions.
On the women’s card, two women dominated their weight classes. One of them was a familiar face: Jessalyn “Gunshow” Ero. The winner of both the left- and right-hand 143-pounds-and-under divisions for the past several years, “Gunshow” returned to the fairgrounds in 2019 to repeat the performance.
Wrestling at 144 pounds and up, Michelle Dougan wiped up the competition, claiming titles in both the left hand and right hand.
The only other double winner was Chris Gobby, who earned firsts in the men’s competitions at right-hand, 155-165 pounds, and left hand 155-176 pounds.
