Have you heard? We're tossing around a new idea at the Jr Beef Expo. It's a cornhole tournament! Exhibitors and adults can participate. See rules below and good luck!
Entry will be free for all divisions. Registration will begin at 12 p.m. on Wednesday, March 18 through the conclusion of the Junior Market Show on Friday, March 20. Visit the Show Office for more information on registration.
1. Tournaments will be held for the following three Divisions:
2. Each team should have two members.
3. Each team should have a name.
4. Individuals can compete in more than one tournament (i.e. “Exhibitor” & “Combo”).
PLAY OF THE GAME
Doubles Play - Team A competes against Team B; each team is comprised of two people.
Team members will throw from opposite sides of the board.
Players at the headboard will alternate pitching bags until each player has pitched all four of his/her bags.
Players at the footboard will take score and resume pitching back to the other board.
Players will continue pitching the bags until one team has reached a predetermined winning score (usually 21) at the conclusion of all four bags being thrown.
Should a team go over the predetermined winning score (also known as “busting”), they will return to a score of 13 and the game will continue. (Games to 11 will return to 7)
VALUE OF THE BAG
The approved method of scoring for the sport of cornhole is “cancellation” scoring. In cancellation scoring, the points of one player cancel out the points of their opponent. Using this method, only one player/team can score in each inning.
Bag In-The-Count (Woody): Any bag which comes to rest anywhere on top of the board. Each is worth one (1) point.
Bag In-The-Hole (Cornhole): Any bag which is thrown through the hole or knocked through the hole by another bag. Each is worth three (3) points.
Foul Bags – Any bag that has not been determined as Bag In-The-Count or Bag In-The Hole or was designated a foul bag as the result of rules violation receives zero (0) points.
