First and foremost, the SCF would like to thank Volfoni for being a great host! The Speakeasy and their staff made sure all the guests had cold drinks to stave off the heat of the day and some good food to keep our energy high for the intense matches that were to follow.
With 16 competitors showing up to play, the SCF decided to have an open tournament format that allowed players to challenge any teams they wanted, partner up with any player they wanted and play as many games as they could tolerate.
Four hours of intense competition ensued. From noon to four, we saw some CRAZY games, EPIC rounds and near IMPOSSIBLE throws.
SCF has to give a shout out to our top throwers of the day! Pretty soon there will be a ranking system that will let you know just who the top throwers are in Shekou, but remember, you'll only get ranked if you come out to the events, so make sure you join our WeChat group or on Facebook so you know when the SCF events are happening!
- Wes (32 points)
- Mark (28 Points)
- Carlos (26 points)
- Andrea (20 points)
If we video taped the day, there would have been FOUR highlights that would have blown your Cornhole mind! Let me break it down for you.
- 4 - Rachael, partnered with Andrea were tossing like champs as they came to the final rounds of a very lopsided game. Rachael stepped to the line during the final round and dropped not one, not two but THREE holes without the bag even touching the sides! When she's on, she's on!
- 3 - In a tight situation, the pressure was on. Andrea and Mark found themselves down late in the game to a potent Wes and Marty. Needing something BIG to happen Andrea sunk 3 holes and single handedly secured the win. What a triumph over the pressure!
- 2 - As if the first two were hard enough to believe, you may need to get on the edge of your seat for this one. Early on in the day a late comer strolled in looking for a partner and ready to play. Wes not only won the overall point total and top prize, but almost got the number one highlight by dropping FOUR BAGS in one round! This man knows how to find the hole!
- 1 - The highlight that takes the cake comes from a virtual unknown in the Cornhole world. Hailing from all the way down under Marcus was excited to get some more games under his belt after getting a taste of it on May 3rd at the Srping Fling Tournament. Using a technique that is a bit eccentric Marcus started getting a hang of the game and then when you didn't think it could happen, it did. Marcus and Lee looking for a win, found themselves on the short side of the score, but then it happened. With a fortress of bags, including his own, surrounding the hole Marcus let the final bag out of his hand, and it dropped ever so sweetly into hole taking along with it his other two bags! He may be an old timer, but he is no longer a first timer! Nice job Marcus!
