Standings Have Been Updated

Here’s the updated link

Two weeks remain and and Applesauce Boys and Those Guys had big weeks to pull into first in their divisions.  Almost every team is still in the running for either first or at least a cash paying spot.  Should be interesting!  Some very intense matches last night.


Can You Believe It’s Been Two Years Since This NEOCornhole Memory?

I’m particularly fond of this one 🙂

I Need Some Feedback

So I know I put the poll up asking if you prefer to stay indoors for the summer or move outdoors and the majority clearly voted for indoors.  However, as a concerned player/director I would like to discuss further the option of going back to Flyers (outdoors) to play in June, July and August.  My concern is this, our league is incredibly talented and also incredibly competitive.  While personally I love this, I also view this as a recipe for future disaster.  Let’s face it, there aren’t that many “Leg Sweepers” in the country, let alone in the Cleveland area that can come out of nowhere and within a year or less start competing with the top teams in our league.  Many players may come to our league for one session, realize they just can’t compete and never return.  I mean ALL of our divisions are competitive and have talented players, so you can’t just come in out of nowhere and have a place to compete.  This recipe has been shown to be true at tournaments throughout the country and I believe it could very well be true for our league.  Players try once, they can’t compete and they go back to just throwing in their back yard.   Read More…

Team of the Week – Blow It Up!

First off, congratulations to Matt and Beau, Ken and Jim, A-Maizing, Robb and Chuck, Christine and Darnell, Blow It Up, Double Penetration, Jeff and Aaron, Those Guys and PB on their “Knock Down” wins and getting 1/3 of their entry fee back.

Special congratulations to the Cleveland Cornhole team of the week – Blow It Up!  They won their “Knock Down” match over Applesauce Boys and then swept all three of their divisional matches and gained 55 points in the Power Rankings to move up to #9 overall.  Congratulations!

Matt and Beau also swept all of their matches on the night to gain 39 points in the Power Rankings to take over the #1 spot and the Ninja Warriors cracked the egg with their first match win of the year.

Hopefully everyone enjoyed the Knock Down round.  Please, if you have suggestions on how to improve the league, don’t hesitate to call me or just talk to me on Monday.

Indoors vs. Outdoors?

Just looking ahead towards the next session that will begin after Memorial Day.  The Knights Hall said we can stay there for a couple of months in the summer if desired, but I wanted to get feedback on if you prefer to stay indoors or try to find an outdoor place to play?  Apparently Flyers is no longer an option on Mondays, but there could possibly be other outdoor options.  Please vote below and if you care to share your opinion, respond below as well.

Would you prefer to stay indoors over the summer or move outdoors?

Addressing Player Behavior

Hello all, last night was a particularly rough night in terms of player behavior.  I personally witnessed two players throwing bags down as hard as they can either on the floor or worse, on top of the board.  I also heard of another player punching a wall.

Please note that I completely understand that many of the players in the league are very competitive and get frustrated when they’re not playing their best.  However, these actions are simply not acceptable and will be dealt with in the future.  The equipment we use is not cheap and the place we play at has the perfect set-up for cornhole and let’s us play for FREE!  We simply cannot risk losing the Hall or damaging equipment because of frustrated players.  I mean if you want to take it out on something, well, there’s always your car, or perhaps you should invest in a punching bag at home.  If you want, you can put my face on the punching bag if it helps.

So, going forward the following rules will be used.  All actions from the past two weeks will not be held against you. Read More…

Friday Night League Standings

They have been posted here.

League Standings

Standings have been updated.  If you haven’t figured it out, go to the top and go to “Leagues” – “Mondays” – “Standings”

Sorry about the humid conditions last night.  While I will be looking into trying to make the boards slide better, the bottom line is, the Hall is not going to turn on the air for us ahead of time and thus if it’s humid outside, it will be more humid inside and thus no matter what, there will be nights where the bags just aren’t going to slide.  Not much we can do about it.  Consider it a warm-up for playing outdoors all summer, lol.
