On Monday night, the Ladies battled it out in the playoffs for the Ladies Fun Night.  I have raved about the success of this night, but I think it is important to recognize one of the keys to this night’s success.  Damara and Crystal have done an amazing job engaging players, but their commitment to building the night and empowering women to believe they can play, have fun, and win at this game is incredible.

Playoffs were a battle in both divisions.  Tier 4 was a competitive event where Kim L, Debbie West, Amber, GMA JO, and Jennifer battled it out for the Ladies Night title.  Jennifer, shooting a 6.41 PPR, threw her way to a victory, only giving up 20 points in the entire bracket.  GMA JO pounced out to a 5-0 lead against Jennifer in the final, but it was all Jennifer after that.  Congrats, Jennifer, and we hope you can join Tier 4 on Tuesday nights next season.

In Tier 5, Shianne, Gladys, Karen, Marla, Glenda, and Dianne battled it out, and just like in the Tier 4 event, there were some great battles.  The best battle was in the A/B final as Glenda came up from the B to take on Dianne, sitting in her Diva Queen Seat.  Game one was very close, but Glenda won to force a second game.  Game two was just as close, but Diamond Dianne defended her throne and took down the win.

Congrats  everyone on a successful season, and we look forward to watching again in season two.

Tuesday night was the last Singles League Night of 2023. Season One was a great success, but I cannot wait to see how many people will be out for the next season starting in January.

In Tier 3, we had a familiar face-off between Spilly, sitting in the King seat, playing Newson, who returned from the B after Spilly put him in the bottom bracket.  Both games these guys played were crazy good.  The A side match-up was over 26 rounds, both shooting 9 PPR.  Spilly edged Kevin out, taking down Season One of the 2023-2024 season.

Tier 4 was an exciting night because I do not know if I am out to lunch with my power ranking or if the power ranking adds too much pressure on the players, but last week’s number one did not rise to the challenge of keeping the number one spot. Bonnie (last week’s number two) did rise to the occasion, as she really brought her game, being crowned Season One Tier 4 Champion.  When we look at the season stats, it was not close, as Bonnie only lost three games in the round-robin all season.  In Tuesday’s final, Ritzy battled back from a 20-0 deficit to tie it up 20-20 before he gave up a single point to hand Bonnie the win.  Great playing Bonnie, and I look forward to watching you elevate your game with the bag change to Ultra R.

Wednesday was very busy for the SCA as we had Winston Knoll and the Seniors tossing bags inside the Backyard.  It was quite the contrast of demographics, but it was a busy hour while the High School kids were there.  We had thirteen battling it out for the Wednesday title in the Senior event.

Friday Night Fun Night80 players came out for a great night of cornhole.  It was an amazing, energetic evening as we welcomed one of our main sponsors, Carpet Superstore, and their staff’s Christmas party. Recognizing and supporting the people who have helped make our club possible is important, and Carpet Superstore is one of those great sponsors.


The TIER 3 Power Ranking.  

1ST– Krentzy – Parkers stays at number one.

2ND – Spilly – Dylan was firing on all cylinders Tuesday and at this point seems to have found his game again.  I have him in the number two spot this week.

3RD – Newson – Kevin moves to number three with a loss Tuesday night.

4TH – Jonathan – Jonathan did not throw this week.

5TH – Glenny -  Glen moves into the last spot. His practicing is paying off and is always a threat to take down a night.

The TIER 4 Power Ranking 

1ST – Bonnie – Bonnie was the hands-down winner of Season One and, in my opinion, is the Pigeon to beat.  She has shown she deserves the top spot in Tier 4.

2ND – Stich – Jason has played most of the season in one of the two spots, and I feel he belongs right behind Bonnie in second.

3RD – Ritzy – Danny found his game Tuesday to finish second and this could be a sign of his move to the top.  Spot three is his though, because of the stick bomb Ringo threw down Tuesday.

4TH – Ringo – Regan plummets to fourth with a rough Tuesday night.  Looks like the pressure of number one is not his friend.  I look forward to seeing if he can slay the pressure demon in his head.

5TH – Oopsidacey – with a solid finish in fourth this week, Mike moves back into my top five.

Stay tuned for my 2023 picks for the Most Improved, Most Outstanding Player, and Most Outstanding Team.


My name is Kevin Bittman, and I am on the Board at the SCA and a proud 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. This 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 that 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, a bar, and a small 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.
