Ok, we are into May, and the first deadline for the National tourney in British Columbia is May 15th. If you register before this date, you get a free National event jersey from Cornhole Canada. This is not to be confused with our deadly Saskatchewan Cornhole Association Team Sask ones because all Sask players will be getting one as well. If you are considering heading to Nationals, I also have great news: the Board of Directors passed a motion to cover three national events. When you register, forward the confirmation to saskcornholepromotions@gmail.com, and we will ensure we reimburse you for your entries.

I have also started a database for jersey sizing and have been working to be ready to order to ensure everyone gets a jersey with the proper size and name on the back in time for Nationals. So, as part of your registration email, please put your jersey size and name you would like on the back. I will compare that with my spreadsheet, and we should be ready. The sooner I get everyone’s registration, the sooner I can send the order in.

We are also ordering the black Backyard jerseys, so if you want one, let me know.

This is a reminder to register for the Backyard Cup on May 25th. We want 20 in every tier and are on our way there, so get registered ASAP.

Let’s move on to the last week of play for all the leagues. It was an unbelievable season that once again set records at the Backyard. The Lady’s Night on Monday, Tier 3 and 4 on Tuesday and the Beginner (Tier 5) on Wednesday all paid out prize money for the top three in the season standings; the top three in Singles and Doubles play at the year-end tourney. Tier 3 and 4 also paid out money at the Mid-season tourney.

Ultimately, over $5000 in cash prizes were handed out to the four divisions. This is exactly what was the SCA’s vision when we started the BackYard at the SCA: to keep cornhole affordable, to give back as much as we can, and keep the doors open and lights on.

The league winners can all be found on the Sask Cornhole League Facebook page.

Onto the year-end tourney highlights. In Tier 5, seven players came out to battle for the prize money. I know I say this every week, but when we see games in tier 5 that are above a 7 PPR, we are in a good spot in Saskatchewan when it comes to cornhole.

Joe P led the round-robin, shooting a 7.13 PPR, but Kim and Marla were not far behind. The bracket saw Kim and Timmy battling for the throne, and after 15 rounds and a 7 PPR, Kim was sitting in the Queen Seat. Marla made her way through the B-side with a chance to see if she could double-dip Kim. It was a tough game, but with Kim shooting a 9.6 PPR over five rounds, it was over fast, and Kim, in her last game as a Penguin, went out on top.

B-RAD and The Kid were battling it out for the King Seat in the Pigeon division. It was very close for the entire 19 rounds, but Lucas found a ten to put Brad away in the end, but he was not done yet. B-RAD went down to the B-side and had an epic comeback from 18-0 to set up the rematch with Lucas. Lucas needed two games, but in the end, he beat Brad to win the year-end tourney.

In the Hawk division, there was a Polsom Show in the game to sit on the throne. Bonnie P was mowing down the Hawks to meet Patches in the A-side final. Bonnie continued her slaughter of the Hawks and sat on her throne, waiting for the B-side champ. After stringing together five straight wins, Caesar was back facing Bonnie, who knocked him down to the B in the first game. Both games were outright battles, but in the end, Darren walked off with the win.

Doubles was also a battle, and it was an afternoon of double dips. All three finals ended with the B-side beating the A-side twice. Dream Crushers, Cement Heads, and the Fun Bags were all victorious after beating BackDoor Bandits, The Chuckers, and Double R.

All the finals were great. A big shout-out goes to Pink Genie and Marcus who knocked Kim and Joe off the pedestal to take the win.


TIER 3 Power Ranking.

  1. Jonathan– did not play this week
  2. Spilly – Always steady and will remain one of my picks to win it all in Aug.
  3. Newson— Stays put in the three spot
  4. Caesar – With an impressive weekend, Darren sneaks into the four spot this week.
  5. Bonnie P – Bonnie has only been playing in the Hawk division for 8 weeks, and she has already had a chance to win. Her display on Sunday was awesome and I cannot wait to see what her game looks like come Aug.


TIER 4 Power Ranking. – I left the rankings the same as there was not much to go on this week.

  1. Bonnie Day— with a couple podium finishes Bonnie stays in the top spot.
  2. B-RAD – Also stays in the two spot. Brad has a very high PPR and is always a threat to win
  3. Ringo – Has been shooting great as of late and is in my three spot
  4. Oopsidacey — Mike also stay in the top five. He did not get the results he was looking for but is still throwing great.
  5. The Kid – with an impressive win on Sunday, Lucas moves into the Top 5 rankings
My name is Kevin Bittman and I am on the Board at the SCA and a member of the Backyard Pigeon Coop. I have been playing cornhole for a couple of years, and I would say I am not great, but I try to get better every week. Cornhole, for me, is a fantastic community of people that, no matter your skill level, you can come out and have fun at the Backyard at the SCA. The blog is my opinion and how I see things in Regina’s cornhole scene. It is meant to be a way to keep people engaged in what is going on at the Backyard and the SCA. My hope is we can continue growing the game in Regina and Saskatchewan. The Backyard at the SCA is located at 2363 2nd Avenue in Regina. The venue has eight regulation cornhole lanes and a bar and kitchen. Each week, the Backyard hosts events for all skill levels, and I will attempt to highlight some of these events and give my perspective on the club and the players in Saskatchewan.
