The 7th Biennial No Guts, No Glory Games Challenge sponsored by Antietam Pony Club took place April 17 under clear blue skies and plenty of sunshine.  Once again, the Maryland Region sent most of the teams, but there were participants from Virginia, Eastern Pennsylvania, Capital and the Old Dominion Regions.

Novice division action started the day off with two teams from De La Brooke Pony Club, a club with a long history of good games teams, going up against an older team from Manada Creek, a club that is just developing its games program.  This was a quick and skillful novice division, with none of the pony issues that sometimes show up with novices.

Just three junior teams competed in the next division, with the Antietam Love Bugs Version 2.0 going up against the De La Brooke/Casanova-Warrenton Tidal Wave.  The Manada Creek Watermelon Crawlers from the Novice division rode HC in this division, to get a little more playing time.  Again, these more experienced junior teams ran the games fast and competently.

The Senior division had a full heat with 6 teams competing – The original Antietam Love Bugs,  Antietam Road Trip, Marlborough Wild Things, De La Brooke Fast and Furious, Rocky Run Skittles from the VA region, and Perkiomen Creek Zany Zebras, who came down from Eastern PA to join the fun. This was a hotly contested division, with some of the best Pony Club games teams in the country competing.  Six eliminations during the course of the division showed that it’s still early in the season, and more practice time will likely take care of those pesky “E”s.

Since those younger riders who are up to the challenge are allowed to play in the Advanced Division at this competition, there were 9 teams competing Advanced.  Marlborough Hot Hooves, De La Brooke Beauties and Beasts, Marlborough Sisterly Love, Potomac/Seneca Valley Stars, Seneca Valley/Cape Henry Red, Capital Freak N’ Hot, Rocky Run/Antietam Playing With Fire, Antietam Raiders and Antietam Double Trouble.  This division was a little more uneven than the other three, with some teams in it for the fun, and some serious players who have been practicing for weeks.  As they did in the Bragging Rights Pairs Competition last fall, the Calhoun sisters dominated, coming in a full 11 points ahead of the second place team.  As a matter of fact, Brea Calhoun rode Junior, Senior and Advanced and took home 3 first place ribbons!  

A small parents division this time around, with just three teams, none of which had practiced together before this competition.  Turn N’ Burn and Big Dogs battled it out for first, but Turn N Burn had just a little more speed.  Old Enough to Know Better brought up the rear, but considering that one rider had never even seen games before, much less ridden a games pony, it was no shame.

We had a great time as always, and hope to see more games players joining us in October for our fall round.  Remember, in games – No Guts, No Glory!!
