HOW TO PLAY

Cornhole, also known as corn toss or bean bag toss, is a lawn game that involves tossing bean bags filled with dried corn at a raised platform with a hole in the center. Similar to horseshoe scoring, players receive points when their tossed bean bags go through the hole or land on the board. The matches will be played doubles-style in teams of two players each, with each team playing a minimum of three games. You must be at least 21. Finalists have the opportunity to play for the grand prize, which is a case of Odell beer each month for a year for the winning team.
