Putting Massachusetts Cornhole on the Map
It certainly did not go quickly, but the Fearsome Foursome is in the books! The format, a combination of the Maryland Cornhole Organization's team tournaments, the ATP Tour's Davis Cup, and the ACO Slyder Cup, was put to the test this past Saturday at the Boundary Brewhouse. Innovation is possible in anything, even a simple backyard game! Here are four things from Pawtucket...
1. Thank you!
I have noticed many facebook "thank you" posts since the conclusion of the tournament. Now, it's my turn! My biggest "thank you" goes out to John Moran who helped me run the event. John has been helping at several events lately and is vital to expanding Boston Cornhole in Southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Next up is the YARDiES team who provided the between-match entertainment with their Polish Horseshoes. We hope to partner with you guys again! Finally, thanks to all who played! It is a bit humbling to have players travel from CT, NY, NJ, and PA to play in one of our events.
2. The Asian Invasion is for real!
The self-proclaimed "Rice Baggers" and Lance were in control from start to finish on Saturday. In the finals, the champs defeated a very strong CNY Cornhole Team. In 2015, Laba and Coyne always left New England victorious. In 2016, the Rice Baggers have topped them in two early meetings. That is not to take anything away from CNY Cornhole; as expected, they were a strong force taking the silver medal. Rounding out the final four were Drunk Before Noon and Southbridge Cornhole.
I am a pleased that a Massachusetts-only team won this event given the competition. Pigeon, Lance, Henry, and Em represented the Commonwealth well. Oh, and two of the state's best players did not even play...the future is looking good in the Bay State!
3. Every Match Matters!
My biggest concern heading in to this tournament was the points system. The worst case scenario was a log-jam at the top that would require complex tie-breakers to determine the teams that would advance. Fortunately, the points distribution worked extremely well and the finals of both doubles groups featured teams fighting for the last semifinal slot against extremely difficult opposition. The Southbridge team of Alex and Jose needed to win their bracket and get some help. They notched five points with a victory over Lance and Pigeon. In the other bracket, Fruit Loops' Jeff and Andy were in the driver's seat, but CNY Cornhole's Laba and Coyne double-dipped them out of the tournament as second place put them a single point behind Southbridge Cornhole's total. Last minute drama with big-time players hitting big shots at the biggest moments!
4. The tournament was too long!
Overall, the tournament went well, but was definitely too long. In my opinion, no tournament should last eight hours. The next time we will need more space to accommodate more boards and hopefully more teams! Look for the next Fearsome Foursome this summer!
The Fearsome Foursome is this Saturday in Pawtucket
We are just days away from debuting a new format with our Fearsome Foursome in Pawtucket, RI at the Boundary Brewhouse. Currently, we are sitting at about 70% full and have five team spots open. We are excited to have players from CT, MA, NJ, NY, PA, and RI in the draw! Below is the list of teams. If you would like to add a team, please send a message to email@example.com or register on the Fearsome Foursome page. The remaining spots will be filled on a first come, first serve basis.
Fearsome Foursome Team List
Check-in on Saturday begins at 11 AM. Upon arrival, please complete your team form specifying who will be assigned to each group. It is recommended not to share your player and team assignments with other teams. Bags fly at noon!
Currently booking fundraisers for the 2016 Boston Marathon
It's marathon training season once again in Boston! For those of you running the race, that means weekend long runs have begun (or at least they should have). For many, that also means that fundraising campaigns need to be in full stride! We are happy to offer cornhole fundraiser tournaments beginning at just $250 (2-3 cornhole courts). While cornhole may not be as much fun as a 20 mile long run, it's a great, fun way to get friends and family together to support your fundraising goals!
If you are interested in hosting a cornhole fundraiser tournament, please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yet another reason to play in the Fearsome Foursome
Ever think you might prefer the pole to the hole? It's okay because at Boston Cornhole we don't pass judgement. Perhaps years ago, we would have considered any backyard alternative to cornhole blasphemous. But, it's 2016; we know cornhole is here to stay and recognize that there are some other amazing choices out there worth exploring.
We are happy to announce that YARDiES has come aboard as a sponsor of our Fearsome Foursome Tournament at the Boundary Brewhouse in Pawtucket. The guys will have Polish Horseshoes in tow and in between tournament matches, you'll get to take a break from the hole and take a spin on the pole! It gets even better as somebody will walk away his or her own set of Polish Horseshoes. Each tournament participant receives an entry into the giveaway drawing. Want to better your odds at winning? Additional chances will be available for purchase with proceeds going towards the tournament purse. Now that's a win-win situation! But, to win it, you gotta be in it! Join us on Saturday, February 27th for a HOLE lot of everything!
What to look for when searching for a quality set of boards and bags...
Doherty Custom Boards added some international flavor to these, simple but elegant boards
Boston Cornhole ordered 15 sets of boards from Mckinnon Cornhole Boards in 2015
Stain, paint, and a logo make these boards almost as nice to look at as they are to play on
Including the 2015 end of year awards...
