A Rough Road Leads To The Stars

This season has been a rough road. A lot of things happened that no one would have wanted or could have imagined. These problems are numerous, and have been on-field and off. That has lead to a less-than-satisfying season. This season has been a rough road.

What has happened is in the past. It can’t be changed, but it shouldn’t be forgotten. To ignore what happened this year would be an invitation to repeat its misery. No one wants that.

This has been a year of growth and learning, both for the Steel Army and the Pittsburgh Riverhounds.

We use today as our pledge to improve, to bring a stronger and better supporters’ group into 2015.

We also, today, ask that Pittsburgh Riverhounds ownership and management pledge to improve. Replace the social media blister with tangible improvements and focus on making the decisions that are necessary to move this club forward. Put the right…



2014 Steel Army Open: Results and Pictures

First off, a huge “Thank You” to everyone who didn’t get scared off by the weather report and ventured out to Freeport for what turned out to be an awesome event. For those of you who didn’t make it out, two things; 1) For shame and 2) As long as we didn’t destroy the course too much and are allowed back, the consensus from everyone there was that we should do it again. With that said, here is the final tally board and some pictures.

Tournament Day, kids.

With a mostly disappointing 2014 Riverhounds campaign in the books, it’s time for a final get together before winter sets in and the planning for 2015 kicks into high gear.

A couple notes for today so that we can get the most out of our time;

- This is way harder than you would think. A couple of us went out last weekend to try it out and have a better idea of logistics for today. Our collective pride took a hit. Be prepared to be a little frustrated. Let the beer calm the nerves.

- We are imposing a stroke limit for every hole of two times par. So, it’s a par three hole, a maximum of six strokes. Maximum of…



Steel Army Open News, Notes, Reminders

m4s0n501

We hope everyone is excited as we our for our First Annual Steel Army Open! We are ready to go over some specifics and reminders so everyone can have an enjoyable afternoon (and evening?) on October 4.

We have decided the tournament will run with an individual stroke play format, as you would see in a majority of tournaments. We decided on this format because we felt there wouldn’t be an equitable way to divide up into teams from people who have not expressed interest in playing with specific partners. Furthermore, without knowing how many people will be showing up without having pre-registered, we wanted to cut down on as much day-of confusion as possible.

If there are co-leaders after 18 holes, there will be as many 1-hole playoff rounds as needed to determine a winner.

We are looking at having groups go out as foursomes,…



Welcome to the offseason

Hit the Links

Here we are in the offseason- a little earlier than expected. The Hounds cap off an extremely disappointing season laying a turd at home and now we’re left standing around scratching our heads wondering where did this promising season go oh so wrong. But hey, always look on the bright side of life right? We didn’t finish last and if this was England we weren’t relegated *party whistle*

First and foremost I want to thank everyone who came out to the supporters section this season. What we do is not possible without you. This is the first year we formally kept track of our numbers and it’s completely blown us away. It’s been a rough year for sure, but it’s also the kind of season that will harden you as a die hard supporter. We hope to see you all back…
