I'd like to congratulate this group of dedicated players who made the 2,000 mile trip across the country to compete in one of the biggest cornhole tournaments ever, with just under 700 players. I know they were excited when a few of them walked through the doorway early on Friday before most of the other players.
I didn't get a chance to watch many games, as is typical when directing an event, but I did get to sneak away from working so that I could watch each of them play, even if for only a few minutes. For most of the players, this was their first experience at an event this size. It was awesome to see the intensity that they played with during their matches, competing to the very end. Seeing all of the pictures that they posted online, I'm confident they made the most out of the experience and bring what they learned back to Arizona.
Overall, I was proud to tell the other directors and players that those eleven players were from Arizona! Competing in this event will only help them as they compete in future events this season and beyond! Cheers!
