He conducted his research in back issues of the Horseshoe Pitchers Digest and the Gadoury/Sweeney file of tournaments held in New England since 1972. Bart is also noted for his willingness to engage in any activity that will help promote the sport, such as by submitting articles to newspapers and to the News Digest. He can be found keeping score at any tournaments he attends, as participant or spectator.
