Monday Night was an eventful night where 14 ladies played a 4-game Switchoilio. Heading into the bracket play, five players were tied with a 3-1 record. In the bracket, Glenda and GMA JO went undefeated to take down the gold medal. Kim L and Kailee L played well as they had to come up from the B side, but Joanne and Glenda proved too much. Great throwing, ladies.

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.

Friday night, FunHolio – We had 62 players come out for an amazing costume party Switcholio. The Halloween Switch is always one of the best, and this year did not disappoint. Ultimately, Bonnie Day and Kevin Newson beat Krentzy and Javan to take down the title. Great playing. This is a reminder as we move into the holiday season to sign up early for the Friday nights. We have some smaller groups booking their Christmas parties, and with a limit on how many players we can have, we anticipate that Friday night will sell out.

Wow, what a weekend.

96 Players played in the Regional this weekend. The tossing was nothing short of amazing.

I will start with singles because, in the Open finals, we saw a battle between Jonathon, who came from the B side, to double dip Parker, sitting in the King seat.

The final was close, with Jonathon winning 23-19, but the amazing part of the game was it went 27 rounds, and the PPRs were 8.52 and 8.37. What a display of Cornhole.

Tier 4 did not disappoint, as Jennifer defended her Queen seat. She held off Stephanie to win the title. Stephanie was a part of a team from Alberta to play in this weekend’s events. Under a lot of pressure, Jenifer battled hard and threw a great game. The Tier 4 event had some unbelievable PPRs, with six players almost averaging 7 PPRs.

The mixed event saw a familiar face in the winner circle, but just with a different partner. Parker and Jennifer double-dipped Crystal and Newson to win the mixed event title.

After a very long day, the Regionals ended with the Doubles event. Tier 4 was dominated by the Kid shooting 9.25 in the final and Daysey shooting an 8 PPR to crush Ringo and Stich. Great shooting!

The Hawk doubles event was another almost double dip as Newson and Caesar beat the King seat Louie and Jonathon in Game 1, but Slightly above average found their game in Game 2 to win the doubles event.

Sunday morning came quickly, but the Mid-season tourney started at 11 with singles. Bonnie made quick work of the rest of the Pigeons as she walked to victory. She shook the Monkey (Stich) off her back to claim the victory. Bonnie did not stop there; she and Sarah also claimed the Double Mid-season tourney title.

In the tier 3 Open, Spilly took his spot back on the winner’s podium as he beat Newson in the final.
Later in the day, Newson got his revenge as he and his partner Caesar beat Spilly and Louie to win the doubles Tourney.

Power Ranking – The biggest week of the year with both number 1’s dropping out of the top spot.

TIER 3 power ranking was a tough one this week because of the unreal play by all the Hawks.

1st – We all knew Jonathon was good, but without him coming out regularly, we did not know how good, but this weekend he put his part in Saskatchewan Cornhole. An average 8.32 PPR in the Open event and a victory has Jonathon taking the top spot.

2ND – Krentzy – was part of the epic battle with Jonathon, shooting 8.32 PPR over 27 rounds. That is consistent, but the loss had him slip into second place.

3RD – Spilly (Dylan Grane): Fresh and ready to go after his honeymoon, he shook off the early rust to have a solid weekend. Always a formidable opponent, Spilly is firmly planted in the top 3.

4TH – Newson, Kevin won the Tuesday Doubles night and the Friday Switch with Bonnie to keep his spot in the top five.

5th – The fifth spot came down to the Sunday mid-season tourney to determine who got to sit in this spot. Caesar, with a doubles victory, held onto the fifth spot.

Rick West again threw excellent all weekend and is a player to watch.
Franco also has been battling an arm injury but always throws well.
Patches with a fourth-place finish in Saturday Regional is also someone to watch out for.

Tier 4/5 power ranking,

1ST – Bonnie Polsom – Bonnie is feared in the tier 4 events. She is always on top of the PPR leaderboard. On Saturday, she averaged over 7 PPR again, and with total domination in Sunday’s Midseason tourney, she slayed the King and bumped Stich to second place.

2nd – Stich – He played well this weekend, but not good enough to keep his throne at the top of the rankings. He’s still a force to be reckoned with every time he hits the lanes.

3RD – Jennifer not only appeared in the top 5, but she catapulted herself to third, with an impressive win in the tier 4 Open Regionals. She calmed the nerves in a very intense final. She also had a victory in the Mixed event. I hope Jennifer plays more events because she can potentially hit the top of the ranking.

4TH – The Kid is back in the mix with a third in the open and a win in doubles. Lucas threw fire all weekend, and I am excited to see him hit the next level with his game.

5th – Ringo – Ringo had a rough weekend, but he edged out Ritzy to hold down the fifth spot.

Players to watch:

Sarah Polsom – I had the privilege to play mixed with Sarah, and I will tell you she is someone to watch in future weeks. She was tossing darts as she held us most of the games. We ended up in third. Good throwing Sarah

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.
