Description:

Cornhole, also known as bean bag toss, baggo or bags, it is a lawn game in which players take turns throwing bean bags at a raised platform with a hole in the far end. A corn bag in the hole scores three points, while one on the platform scores one point. Play continues until a player reaches the score of 21.
 
 The history of the game is mostly unknown, though stories abound. One story claims that the game was first played during the 14th century in Germany, then rediscovered in the hills of Kentucky, or somewhere in Ohio, about 100 years ago. Many American scholars confirm that a game of very similar nature was played by Native Americans in Midwest America (notably, the Blackhawk tribe in Illinois) who filled pig bladders with dried beans and competitively tossed them for entertainment. The truth is, no one really knows, but the game is great fun for all ages and can be played anywhere!

Interested in playing the tournament? Two person teams will battle for a first place prize of $500 in the single elimination tournament. The fee to register is $110 per team, including food and drinks. Second place pays $250 and third place $100.
