Event Recap – 2nd Annual Breathe for Bea Cornhole Tournament

This past weekend, on Saturday, September 7th, 2019, the 2nd Annual Breathe for Bea Cornhole Tournament took place at the Ted Willams Camp in Lakeville, MA, adjacent to the Loon Pond Lodge. Despite the looming threat of Hurricane Dorian, 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.

Despite a cloudy, damp and breezy start in the AM, the afternoon turned out to be beautiful, with plenty of sunshine and warmth! We had another unbelievable turnout – almost 30 teams participated, 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 great gifts, many of which were kindly donated by some of those in attendance. There was also music playing, 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 ET Boys which consisted of Harvey Berube and Arthur Meack, and Hector Rodriguez and Eli Solis of Team Puerto Rico, who went in to the final undefeated in the double elimination tournament. The ET Boys actually took the first match and handed Team Puerto Rico their first loss of the day, putting them on the brink of elimination. However, Team PR was able to recover and emerge victorious in the second match. Each team took home some great prizes, but most importantly, the winners nabbed the prestigious Breathe for Bea Cornhole Tournament Championship 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 3rd Annual, as we hope to continue to grow the event to be even bigger than the previous one! Many thanks!

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