12:301:45Cornhole TournamentCoSponsored by PraiseCharts and Loop Community! Whether you are new to corn hole, or play it every chance you get, everyone can take part. Cornhole, or bean bag toss, is a simple-to-learn game in which players on teams of 2 take turns throwing bean bags at a raised platform with a hole in the far end. Contestants take turns pitching their corn bags at the cornhole platform until a team reaches the score of 21 points, though for the sake of time, we will just go to 13. A corn bag in the hole scores 3 points, while one on the platform scores 1 point.
