Event Recap – 1st Annual Breathe for Bea Cornhole Tournament

Over the weekend, on Saturday, September 8th, 2018, the 1st Annual Breathe for Bea Cornhole Tournament took place at the Ted Willams Camp in Lakeville, MA. Seasoned cornhole veterans, along with more casual players just looking to come out and support the cause, gathered to remember and the honor the life of Ashley “Bea” Briggs, as well to raise funds for the Breathe for Bea Foundation – funds that allow us to help make the lives of CF patients and families who are battling Cystic Fibrosis, a bit more manageable.

It was a cloudy afternoon that felt more like a Fall day, but it didn’t stop the players from slinging some bags and having a great time! We had an unbelievable turnout – almost 30 teams signed up, and many more people came by to enjoy the day and watch the tournament unfold. In addition to the tourney, we also had a great raffle featuring a lot of amazing items, there was music was playing, we had other games for those waiting or not in the tournament, and everyone enjoyed the food and beverages that were served during the course of the day!

The tournament was the main event though and, after many grueling games and a long day of battling through the field, two teams remained – the Norton Knights which consisted of John and Rose Brouwer, and Chris Pearson and Nick McNamee of the Duct Monkies. Only one could emerge victorious however, and after a couple of tough games, the Duct Monkies came out on top! Each team took home some great prizes, but most importantly, the winners nabbed the prestigious 1st Annual Breathe for Bea Cornhole Tournament Championhip trophy (which they are fully expected to defend next year!).

All in all, it was a “Good Day for a Good Day”. The event was incredibly successful as the Foundation was able to raise a lot of funds, and everyone had a ton of fun. We cannot say thank you enough to everyone who played and stopped by throughout the day. It means a great deal to all of us, and we really appreciate the support. Hope to see you all again next year at the 2nd Annual! Many thanks!

Today is a good day for a good day, so spread the love and share this post!
