Today was a beautiful day, although it was a touch warm for crumpets. We had a very slow start today, with only three players until Jess showed up at about 1:50. We played a full game of 2 on 2, then some other players showed up and we played a few more full games.
Game 1 - In the first game, the "Loaf Pinchers" (Melissa, Michelle) fell to "Loaf Pinchers" (Robbie, Jess) by a score of 10-7. We shrunk the field down a bit for that game. The other players showed up right at the very end of that game.
Game 2 - In the second game, we increased the players but forgot to increase the size of the field. So it was a good game, but at times the field became a little bit crowded. We would also like to welcome John and Brett, two new players who learned the ropes in game 2. In this game, "That's All We've Got" (Heather, Justin, John, Jess, Robbie) beat out "Sad, Melancholy, Broadness of Power" (Melissa, Brett, Michelle, Greg) by a score of 10-3.
Game 3 - In the third game, "Rye Shot Gone Awry" (Robbie, John, Melissa, Heather) were soundly defeated by "Fresh Meat of Bel-Aire" (Michelle, Jess, Brett, Justin) by a score of 10-4.
Game 4 - The final game began as a half-game between "Strive For Mediocrity" (Greg, Heather, Jess, Robbie) and "Poo Poo Platter Feeds Me Good" (Brett, Melissa, John, Justin). Mediocrity got off to a very quick start, running up to a 4-0 lead before the teams agreed to bump up to a full game. Each team scored one more point before two collisions between Melissa and Jess injured each of them in turn, ending the game 5-1 in favor of "Strive for Mediocrity".
After the last game, everyone headed back to Robbie's place for ice cream and hanging out.
