Summer Coed Hat League (2008)

Event Type
Hat League
Event Start
Event End

Participants in the summer hat league represent a wide range of skills and age groups. Many players who start in Verns league or the High School leagues continue to hone their skills in the summer hat league. The league is geared towards beginner and intermediate-level players, and is a great way to meet new people.


Congratulations to Saucy Pans and Spork!

Saucy Pans defeated Spork in the finals, making them the league champions.   Congratulations!

The players of  Spork, however, have no reason to be ashamed, having won this seasons spirit award (which, in a case of silver-being-better-than-gold, apparently includes a wonderful gift from our sponsors.)

Thank you all for playing this Summer!
