Co-directors Eric Peterson and Tyler Korby put

in about 25 hours over the previous three days preparing for Monday's fun-filled event, including mowing, organizing teams and adding a third field this year.

A total of 36 teams competed -- with more than 140 participants -- in games from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Christian Pritchett, Josh Pritchett and Hunter Roberts won the championship trophy.

The B&B Lunch Wagon kept the record crowd fed as people of all ages milled about either watching, participating or socializing. 

All in all, it was a relaxing day of fun, food, friends and family.
