With the summer sun fading, people are still getting outside and enjoying the summer vibes. With all the backyard barbecues and get-togethers, more and more people are playing lawn games. Sure there is bocce ball and volleyball, but the game of cornhole has been sweeping the nation. The popularity of tossing a bean bag into a small wooden hole has become more and more popular over the last two decades. For someone who has never seen a cornhole game, it almost looks like a group of people are training to win a giant stuffed bear at a carnival. But, the game of cornhole takes some serious skill. It has even grown so large that it has its very own professional competitive league.

According to Wikipedia

Cornhole (also known regionally as bagssack toss, or bean bag toss) is a lawn game in which players take turns throwing 16-ounce bags of corn kernels at a raised platform (board) with a hole in the far end. A bag in the hole scores 3 points, while one on the board scores 1 point. Play continues until a team or player reaches or exceeds the score of 21 by means of cancellation scoring.

With all the "training" you have accomplished this past summer. It is time to show off your cornhole skills. The Silver Slipper is hosting a cornhole tournament this weekend, and you won't want to miss it.
