Lots to like about Lawrence!

The Champs in Lawrence, Scott and John

This past Saturday marked the inaugural trip to Lawrence to host the Bags for Boobs Tournament to benefit the Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk.  Hosting tournaments is a good gig and days like Saturday make for a special day...here's why...

New faces in a new place...
 
If it seems like it's always the same teams that win Boston Cornhole events, it's because it's true 90% of the time.  While we love our top dogs, their absence this weekend made for a wide open field.  Nonetheless, my pre-tournament favorites of Dave Scott and Kevin Lowry soon found themselves in the driver's seat with an undefeated run to the finals.  But, if this duo expected a happy ending in Lawrence, it would have to wait until after the tournament.  Scott Pelletier and John Macleod, avenged an earlier defeat to complete the double dip and cruise into victory lane.  Footnote:  these France-themed boards are the same ones that Lowry and yours truly were double-dipped on earlier in the week in Burlington.

Familiar faces in a new place...

While I may not have known them by name, I recognized several faces including some that competed at Fenway, in Amesbury, the guys from the Winner's Circle Cornhole Club, and my new friends from Shirley (not the one who barks).  Also in attendance were the 3rd Ave Burlington stalwarts, Zach and Caleb, with their better halves who may actually be better cornholers as well!  Welcome to the circuit, hope to see you all at future events!

When can we do it again?

The venue and people were great, so let's see if we can make it happen again!  While nothing is on the docket, stay tuned for more events in the area.  In the meantime, be sure to visit the Boston Cornhole homepage for all the latest and greatest upcoming tournaments!
