Court Expansion/Brackets: Speaking of bracketing, we’ve expanded the courts and bracketing format to 12 total adult courts and 4 total kids courts. Like last year we will host two primary shifts: 8:00am-12:00pm (The Negator & Mary Lou brackets) and 1:00pm-5:00pm (The 3 Ring Circus & Snapback brackets). This will help keep things moving.

fitzThe “Fitz” Betting Board: Wager on your top favorite or sleeper to win the coveted Slingball Cup! Named in honor of Randy’s Fraternity Brother, Michael Timothy Fitzpatrick, who was taken from us prematurely in 2014.  Fits was a Huge Sports fan so this tribute fits him.  The Betting Board lists all participants and is similar to the silent auction format.  Anyone can wager on any player and eventually outbid others.  After the final bidding bell, then you own that player if you have the highest bid.  Half the earnings go to Fighting MS and the other half will go to who ever has the highest bid on the Winner of Slingball.  Who will dethrone 2015 Champion, Bryan Green? Check out past champs, for some favorites like Carter Neu or Chris Koons!

A Sincere Thank You to all Slingball Participants, Supporters, Volunteers, Donators!!! The Neu Brothers, Randy & Carter would like to thank everyone who participated and/or supported the 9th Annual MJN “Help Fight MS” Slingball Tourney. We raised just over $18,000 to help the fight against MS which once again surpasses our previous year and is an all-time record! Each of you make a HUGE difference in helping those effected by MS. As Candyce from the MSSP stated, “Everyone gets an AC unit, no one is turned away!” What a difference each of you makes! 

Our mother, Marilyn J. Neu, would be proud of all of you as she believed in “having fun, paying it forward, and meeting new friends.” We feel we accomplished that mission! That said, we wanted to recap the 9th Annual MJN “Help Fight MS” Slingball Tourney:

The Grown Ups Tourney! After a little bit of wind chill scare in the am, the weather leveled out for a fantastic day of Slingball! Each of the four divisions hosted hundreds of extraordinary games and masterful slinging to eventually produce the Sunday “Sweet 16″… They are listed as follows:
 
18793887204_abe94aadbe_h

The Negators: Chris Koons, Carter Neu, JoLynn Foulon (the Lone Female!), and Jack Eggleston (from the kids tourney to the adult Sweet 16!) 

The Mary Lous: Bill Swanick, Connor Justrom, Frosty Comer, and Jeff Firstenberg 

The 3 Ring Circuses: John Brase, Jeff Wenckus, Michael Catherall, and Aaron Angelo 

The Snapbacks: Bryan Green, Trevor Green (Bryan Green’s son), Grove Hunt, Darrell Auvil (cousin of the Green’s!)

In the end, four pillars of absolute excellence (two of them former champs) made their way to the main Slingball courts to battle it out to see who was going to be crowned 2015’s Slingball Champion! These four masters were: John Brase, Carter Neu, Bill Swanick and Bryan Green.

With two former champions (Carter Neu and Bryan Green) making it to the “Final Four”, the crowd was eager to see if we would have the first two-time champ crowned since Tyson Labrousse did it in inaugural years one and two. Or would we have a brand new champion in John Brase or Bill Swanick, who were determined not to let this happen? In the end it was Bryan “Big Green Machine” Green who fended off finals newcomer, Bill “The Competitor” Swanick and as a result, returned to his days of glory to capture his 2nd Slingball Cup in 5 years. In true sling fashion he dumped his ceremonial beer on his head and celebrated in style with his son, Austin who was the winner of the Kid’s Mini-Marilyn Slingball tourney (also a first!). 

The Kids Mini Marilyn Tourney! Additionally impressive was the intensity and artfulness of the Kid’s Division where four sharp shooters managed to make their way to the Sunday court: Preston Slama, Drew Eggleston, Liam Symms and Austin Green.Several see-saw battles ensued as the sharp shooters shared their skill with the crowd. There were “oohs” and “ahhs”, cheering and nervous silence… but in the end it was Austin Green who fended off Liam Symms in one of the tightest kid’s duels to date! Congrats to Austin who joined his Dad, Bryan as the only Father/Son champs ever to both win Slingball. Wow!  Congrats goes out to all the kids that participated. They are all winners in our book!
