Pat pulls Rank on the General!

Week 3 of 7 is in the books in Wilmington!

One of my favorite things about blind draw is watching partners square off against each other.  And with my 0-2 record last Thursday, I had plenty of time to sit back and watch.  If you are familiar with cornhole north of Boston, then you may know that Pat and the General are sort of a thing.  But, on this evening, the friends turned temporary foes were on teams (Pat Collett & Rich Queen vs. The General & Jim Nocella) that battled it out for the top position.  Down to his last toss, Pat swept in two bags (his eyes may have been closed) to force a rubber match and eventually complete the double dip!  With the victory, Rich and Pat join Pigeon with having a 1st and 2nd place finish on the resume after three weeks.  As expected, this has also tightened things up at the top of the standings.  The General and Jim also climb a few rungs with some solid play.  Rounding out the top three were Joe Sac and Nasi.

You don't need to be a league member to play...or have an impact!

After we drew for teams, I had Lowry as the walker, Lance and Phil, and Derek and Evanda pegged as the favorites.  But with a blink of an eye, I saw Evanda and Derek playing with by themselves, Phil and Lance exiting stage left, and Lowry lamenting a missed opportunity of playing solo.  All were shown the door by league newcomer Joe Sac paired with the strong play of non-leaguer, Nasi from Custom Cornhole Company!  Blasphemy?  Absolutely not!  The beauty of our format is that we welcome all comers on any given night!

Skills Challenge

We had our first tie in the skills challenge with both Kevin Lowry and Pigeon tallying a score of 41 earning each five points.  Dan Madden was third with a score of 30 which was good enough for two points*.

We hit the midway mark this week.  Come see us in Wilmington!
