Photos from Oregon Tapey Beercone Invitational 5

The 5th Annual Oregon Tapey Beercone Invitational provided the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat, twice, to a total of 17 players and 2 full time spectators. 2 full cases of Bacchus D were consumed, a large jar of Zesty Pickles was drained of all juices, and the host facility was left with 118 remaining Coor’s light cans.

The Game of Kings also acquired its first actual factual corporate sponsor, Benny’s Donuts. This is a huge victory, as it lends legitimacy to the Sport of Kings while simultaneously promoting donuts, which are good.
