Another Championship Saturday in the books, although this one could have easily been dubbed Wild Card Weekend. Both of Wrigley's Picks walked away with Championships, most notably, Pick Pockets from Big Track Division going from dead last to the top of the heap! Way to go guys! In the Heads Up Division, Bankers, who also finished toward the bottom of the standings was the only team standing at the end of the night, capturing their first Fast Eddie Cup!

In addition to the Playoff Action, we had a very good response to our Mini Tournaments which gave players not competing in playoffs a chance to earn some cash and gave players competing in playoffs, an opportunity to stay in stroke when not in a match. Mini's are here to stay!
In all, we handed out over $5,600 in cash awards and raffle prizes! But, like I've always said, there's no way Corey and I could do this without the Players. Thank you all for participating and making it fun for everyone involved. Special thanks to Ra Hanna for coming out and providing the Live Stream; much appreciated, Chris Santana for providing some technical/marketing support and Nancy Harper for sacrificing her Saturday to run our Mini Tournaments. You guys rock!
Session II will start the week of 6/13. Our Heads Up Division Player Draft will be held on Saturday, 6/11. We still have a few slots remaining. If you or someone you know is interested in competing this Session (in either Division), please reach out to us as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org.
