Bastille Day Fireworks

Occasional rain-sprinkles did not prevent many a loud bang from being heard at the Montgomery Street Tossing Grounds this past Saturday. Brady and Señor Palermo made their season debuts and provided some moments of excitement, but the skills and experience of their opponents was too much to overcome with novice enthusiasm alone.

Mr. Jeff Gates won all three of his contests, impoving his season mark to 7-1, comfortably in first place in the EKA Chapter Standings. The other highlight of the day was a record-setting scoring performance from Mr. Stephen Priest; initial reports had the new mark at 48 points, but a review of the score sheet revealed that Mr. Priest had become the first player to reach 50 points in organized chapter play.

Summary of Results

Gates 34 Brady 21
Schultz 22 Palermo 21
Priest 50 Brady 21
Gates 33 Schultz 28
Guberman 20 Curson 13
Schultz 29 Wilkins 27
Gates 33 Schultz 23
Guberman 33 Palermo 15

Frank Schultz Special Early Report

A boisterous crowd descended on the Ancient & Overgrown Tossing Grounds Saturday June 30th, featuring seven first-time tossers and a total of seven cases played. Among the several newcomers, Mr. Conner Allred made a smashing debut, and Mr. Gus Glaw showed some promise, not to denigrate entertaining performances from all the rookies.

A detailed report of case play will be posted at a later date, but readers are encouraged to check out the Edgewood-Kirkwood, Atlanta Chapter's current standings for some indication of the results. As we always strive to provide complete information, any details about the proper names of Saturday's female comptetitors would be most welcome.
