We may have had one of the best fall Toss Off tournaments ever. The air was crisp, the vibe was n-dimensional, our bags were hot, and we were all in a very competitive, winner take all posture. We had 7 teams of semi-pro players. Dirc and Andy just had it all and laid waste to the rest of us loser wanna-be’s. Gorman and Roy were hopeful but really, really lacked the skills The competition was so hot last night we experienced 2 Shicks. Can’t recall the first round but the 2nd round was Voodoo Doc Schweitzer & Coach Goetz. Well deserved. Great end to the season. We were really challenged in the spring since we had so much rain that we had to use the tarps almost every week. Then in the fall the 6 week drought just killed the grass. What a nightmare for the poor underpaid, overworked, and under appreciated Facilities Manager. Thanks to all in the TPCA Brotherhood for an awesome fun filled 2019. Looking for more fun with bags in 2020.
HOLD THE PRESSES ! Late update. Just noticed that Dirc has won the last 3 Fall Toss Off’s as well as the 2019 Spring Fling and the 2017 Christmas Beer Exchange. Dirc is obviously on a lucky streak with his partners !
Rob and Wally honorably represented TPCA and won the HHS Cheer tournament. For the second year Pastor Roy is the unlikely co-winner of the tournament, once again carried to the winners circle by his partner ! What a nice day and so much fun! Elliott was the winner of the long toss competition at 58 ft ! Thanks to Diane Kroger for putting on such a fun-fundraiser ! Looking forward to next year !
Last night we had a nice visit by John the Sherbet, his son Robby who lives in Portlandia and wears ladies pants and slippers, and his son-in-law Michael ( I can barely standup) the Irish. Aren’t the Irish supposed to be able to hold their whiskey ? Maybe too much time living in Chicago.
Fodder for an easy Shick. Thanks for coming.
After many Thursday evenings of spring rain we finally got a break! It rained a mile away but not at the TPCA cornhole emporium ! We had a very competitive tournament with 7 teams. The winners were Dirc and Wally! They were both on fire ! Congratulations!
We also had an early Shicking. Bryan and Rob earned the cans in a quick 3 round game. They hardly knew what hit them.
And I won the world singles title by beating Hens ( el Diablo) for the 4th straight time in singles late night competition. I’ve finally conquered my fear of him.
Opening Day – best day of the year! Not baseball – TPCA! First official games of the 2019 outdoor season were last night. New boards, new bags, new iPad scoring towers ! With warm weather, 12 players, and 3 Shicks (Billy/Bryan , Gorman/Orem, Billy/Bryan), we had a really fun night ! Billy and Bryan got Shicked twice – the first official Dirc of the season ! Bryan’s new throwing method really isn’t working out. Will he ever be able to unload the can ? Expect him to set a new ownership record.
TPCA now has it’s own cornhole scoring app for iPhone and iPad. Available in the App Store. http://appstore.com/TPCAcornhole
Written in Xcode and Swift 4. Compatible with iOS 10 to 12. Look for future updates.
Last night instead of playing cornhole the TPCA celebrated Valentines Day and our lovely wives at Grassroots & Vine. It was a fun evening and the food was wonderful. Their flat breads are just amazing and literally works of art. If you haven’t been there you really should give it a try. We enjoyed the food and wine and had a lot of fun but missed throwing bags.
Fun night at Dirc’s place of business last night (thanks Dirc). Much needed break from the smoky pub. Probably added 1 year to our lives avoiding the second hand smoke. Hens was on fire as El Diablo dropping airmail after airmail enjoying the high ceiling venue. One time he scored 12 points all airmail. Depressing to play against. Regardless he could not unload the Shick can. Bummer Hens, embrace, enjoy
Dan Orem really impressed everyone by not winning a game all night coining the term – Big O. Only bummer of the night was Steve Miller’s horrendous playlist.
We have too much fun!
Steve Miller somehow managed to hook a bag onto the tiny hook in the ceiling at the pub last Thursday night. Only because of his erratic and inconsistent throws would this be possible. If this was your goal it would take a thousand throws to accomplish this. Only Steve. And he didn’t buy a single round ! But he didn’t win any games either.
Our 10th anniversary Christmas Beer Exchange and Cornhole Spectacular was held at the JLC Corndome and grease factory (thanks for hosting). We had 9 teams for a rousing double elimination tournament. Any team that hit 10 points during play had to take shots. Not sure who had to consume the most shots but it resulted in some unexpected game outcomes. Wally managed to get Shicked, Shick someone back, then get re-Shicked. A Walleye ! The winners of the night were Steve Hensley and Bruce Sidle ! The final non-tournament fun game of the night was a real thriller! Tom and Wally were down 20-0 against Hens and Rob. Tom only had to put it on the board to get 1 point and avoid a Shick, but instead he pushed in his opponents bag for a loss, got Shicked, and ended up with the can for the night. Best Christmas present ever. There really is a Santa ! Now off to wash the bags.
