World champs

NY’s annual CORNHOLE tournament took place last Friday and sounded totes amaize; major points to the corny names and costumery. Very well played everybody (group shot cred: Shayne Ryan)

To Regent’s Park next, for FLAMESTORM’s encounter with Dentsu ‘Dodgers’:

After electing to field first we certainly got a taste of what our high-scoring opponents were capable of as they started with a solid 7 runs. Opening our batting with a home run, we managed to get a few around but couldn’t quite match our opponents.

This set the tone for the rest of the game, and, missing a few key players, we struggled to close the gap. We had a spectacular start to the 4th innings, and at one point closed the gap to 5. However the consistency of our opponents couldn’t be matched and the game ended Flamestorm 15 – 26 Dodgers. MVP for this week for some solid hits as well as some fearless play at first base goes to Puff, congrats!

Your Flamestorm will be in Regent’s Park again this weekend playing in the London Advertising Softball League summer tournament: kicking off at 9:30 against DNEG and looking to play MPC in the finals at 1pm (finishing in time to watch the footy in Camden @3). Please come along and cheer if you’re around, we’ll be near the Hub
