Snohomish Snyders and Portland Samuelsons Dominate Draft Order Draw

Matt Snyder was the big winner today as his name was the first pulled from the hat at BISERGS headquarters in Abu Dhabi.  When news reached Snohomish, Matt (pictured above, thanks for sending me the photo Carol) ran into his backyard and slid across grass on his knees in celebration. Rick Samuelson was the second name selected and he was followed immediately by his sons Derek and Evan. Irma and Byron Xitumul wrapped up the top 5 and Max Snyder joined his father in wild celebration as his name was pulled out 6th. Current BISERGS World #1, Carol Barrera, watched the entire event live via Skype, but had to wait until number 17 to hear her name called. Not every Snyder in Washington state was pleased with their place. Cookie Snyder didn't receive a mother's day gift from the draw as her name was picked last. She'll take consolation in the fact that she has the first pick in the second round and can possibly snatch up two World Cup group winners.
