Tournaments require a significant effort from many to be successful. If you can volunteer four hours of your time we will provide you with a t-shirt and free pass to our social in Dewey Beach after the games.

The club has also made arrangements with their sponsor Dewey Beer company to offer an adult beverage while watching the games.


DBC is a local brewer founded by one of our original players.  Mike Reilly (aka Blondie) played with the club for three years before bowing out.  Mike may claim that it was starting a new business, having a couple of kids or chronic neck pain that made him stop playing.  Our theory is that he simply started wimping out.  You make the call when you meet him at his brewery in Dewey Beach.  One thing is for sure, the man makes a wicked brew!
