The wind did not stop the bags from flying at the Second Annual Pearl Street Block Party this past Saturday. This year’s event was sponsored by Roma Italian Restaurant and Underdawgs Sports Grill/Restaurant.

 A car exhibit kicked off the day, followed by a Cornhole Tournament. Twenty teams competed in the BYOP (bring your own partner) tournament and 8 teams in the Blind Draw tournament that followed. Jody Moore and Scott Beck took home the win in the BYOP tournament with LJ and Larry Benson finishing second and JJ Oswalt and Jake Walker taking third.  

Shawn Archer and Brian Smith placed first in the Blind Draw. Zachary Mathews and Chad Gloer finished second with Eric Walker and Kathy Edwards in third place.  

The threat of severe storms did put a little damper on the evening events. The live bands canceled, ending the party a little earlier than planned. Fun was still had for all who attended.
