Result from Bags on January 17th

The traveling trophy is living up to the name by changing hands again this month at the legion. Congratulations to Tony Sundstrom and Bronson Taylor for being the winners on an evening filled with many close and exciting games. This was by far our best attendance at a Bags event and the Ely Legion would like to thank everyone for their support of the Legion. Also thanks to everyone who brought food for the Linn County Veteran’s Food Bank. Our next Bags event will be on the 21st of February with doors opening at 6:00 PM and competition beginning at 7:00 PM.
