A couple of weeks ago, I talked about the points system. I am pleased to announce another change to the points system. Previous Cornhole Canada would only allow 6 Local tournaments to be entered a month. They have changed that practice and now let leagues enter 4 per tier. The only stipulation is players cannot play in more than one tier. (No hunting for points)

So, how does this change things? Remember a couple of weeks ago when I discussed the new system that keeps track of the points leader board in every tier? This change to being able to submit four events per tier will allow us to enter all of the Tuesdays for Tier 4 and Tier 5. This will help our players get valuable points to compete for the top spot in their tier. It would be best to play in the Tier representing your Average Points Per Round (PPR). This is always an interesting discussion, but the rule is you can never play in a lower tier than your PPR, but you can typically move up if you want to play in a stronger tier. The League owners in every club can move people if they feel someone registered in the wrong division. Below are the averages for each tier:

Tier-5 – below 5 PPR
Tier-4 – 5 PPR to 6.49 PPR
Tier-3 – 6.5 PPR and higher

Let me know if you want to learn more about the points system, and I can add more to future blogs.

Reminder: Regional Weekend next weekend. It starts Friday with the Costume Party FunHolio. Oct 27, 2023, should be an awesome start to a fantastic weekend of throwing. Saturday, Oct 28, 2023, starts with Regional Mixed at 10 AM. Both the Tier 3 and 4/5 singles follow at 1 PM. Finally, the Tier 3 and Tier 4/5 Open doubles at 5 PM. Stick around after because there should be some extra games to follow the doubles. You may think you are not ready for a Regional, but you’re mistaken because there is a division for every skill level. Come try it out. Saturday is the Mid-season tourney for the Tuesday League to come and try and win some mid-season money. This format will be a straight double elimination bracket in singles and doubles.

Now to the week of Cornhole.

Monday night began with another couple of Newbies coming out. I think it is important to thank Damara and Crystal for helping make Monday Ladies Fun Night a fun, inviting night that has become a great success. Thirteen came out to play singles. Entering the bracket, three ladies went 3-0. Bonnie D, Amber, and Lynette, but Jennifer went undefeated in the bracket as she beat Bonnie D in the final. Great job, ladies, and we hope to see you competing in the Regional at the end of the month.

Tuesday night Singles had two Tiers playing. Tier 4 was dominated by last week’s Number 2 power-ranked player. Bonnie shot an impressive 7.2 PPR in the round-robin, going through the bracket without a loss, beating Ringo 21-3 in the final.

Tier 3, we saw a familiar face in Newson beating Glenny in the final in the Hawk division. Kevin and Glen started shaky in the round-robin, going 1-3, but found their game in the bracket. The night saw some impressive PPR averages, led by Caesar’s 8.28 PPR; three Hawks (Caesar, Patches, and Newson) averaged over 8 PPR on the night.

Friday night, FunHolio saw 54 players compete for the title. Presley led the pack in the round-robin with a 6-0 record. The bracket saw Lynette have a fantastic evening, carrying Bitsy to an undefeated record to win the title. Great shooting, Lynette; it was a pleasure, as always. On another fun note, the prize wheel did not see a winner, so next week should be good. One highlight was Brad, AKA Deadly. Deadly spun the wheel, and it landed on 5. He was sitting at four after a great roll bag and only needed to put it on the board for $357. Muffin, you were so close.

Power Ranking – The last power ranking going into a week that ends with another Regional and the Mid-Season Tourney. Let us see if these rankings move around at the end of the Events.

TIER 3 –

It was interesting because last week’s top two ranked players did not play, and the third place won Tuesday league night, so the only movement in Tier 3 came in the fifth spot.

1ST – Krentzy – Parker maintains the top spot this week despite not playing due to an illness.

2ND – Spilly (Dylan Grane): Dylan stays in second even though he did not play any events this week. I hope you enjoyed your Honeymoon; the pictures looked great.

3RD – Newson, with a win in Tuesday league night, is firmly planted in the third spot. Next week’s Regional will be the test to see if he can crack the top two.

4TH – Caesar stays in the fourth spot. His PPR has been great lately but has not translated to any wins Yet. It is only a matter of time before this Hawk hits the winning circle and moves up the power ranking.

5TH – Glenny – anyone watching the Hawk division has seen that Glenn has been throwing great lately. It may have something to do with that membership he bought (see a trend here). Last week, he was close to hitting the top 5, but a bottom of the bracket in a Switch night prevented it. IMO, he has altered his game a bit, mucking it up occasionally, but it has been working.

Tier 4/5 power ranking,

1ST – Stich – Jason did not throw this week, but after combing through the stats, he is on shaky ground in the Number one spot. He has been able to win, but his numbers suggest a Queen could be sitting on the throne very soon.

2nd – Bonnie Polsom – Bonnie continues to impress every night she throws. Week after week, she is on top of the average PPR, and if it weren’t for Stich winning the head-to-head, she would be in the top spot.

3RD – Ringo – Ringo, with his steady throwing moves into the third spot. This battle with Ritzy for the third spot is much like the battle for third in tier 3 between Kevin and Darren. Back and forth, but this week, Ringo holds the third spot.

4TH – Ritzy moves to the fourth spot after Ringo’s better showing on Tuesday League night. I know Ritzy has been battling a sickness, and I look forward to seeing him bounce back this weekend.

5TH – Oopsidacey pulls into my top 5 ranking with a third-place finish on Tuesday Night. Mike went 3-1 in the round-robin and in the bracket. With an impressive win against Ringo, he made it to the A final. He failed to sit in the King seat and dropped to the B side of the bracket. Ringo got his revenge in the B final, but Mike ended up with a solid third-place finish. Keep up the great tossing, Mike.

Players to watch:
Jennifer, with a win in Monday Night Ladies Fun Night, is a person to watch. Hopefully, her schedule will allow her to play on Tuesday next season.

Sarah Polsom – Once again, had a solid week, finishing fourth on Tuesday. Look for Sarah to make waves in the Mixed doubles Regional this weekend as she picked up a Deadly shooter to be her partner.

The Kid did not play this week, which bumped him out of the top 5, but he is still on my radar.

Stay tuned every Sunday for a rundown of the week’s activities.


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 and 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.
