So, what is Cornhole?

It has been called many things, Corn Toss, Bean Bag, Bean Toss, Soft Horseshoes, Indiana Horseshoes, but to many of us born and raised in Kentucky and the southern part of Ohio, the game is passionately referred to as Cornhole.  It has been said that the game originated in Germany in the 14th century, and then was rediscovered in the hills of Kentucky over 100 years ago.

The truth is, who really knows, but the game is great fun for all ages and can be played anywhere!

Cornhole or Corn Toss is similar to horseshoes except you use wooden boxes called cornhole platforms and corn bags instead of horseshoes and metal stakes. Contestants take turns pitching their corn bags at the cornhole platform until a contestant reaches the score of 21 points. A corn bag in the hole scores 3 points, while one on the platform scores 1 point.

Scoring can be swift and the lead may change hands several times in a match before the winner is decided.  The game is generally played tournament style with an individual or team being named the champion at the end of the tournament.

2016 Cornhole for Kiwanis Tournament

The temperature may have been hot but the players were undetered in the Kiwanis Club of Mansfield’s First Cornhole for Kiwanis Tournament on the afternoon of Friday, June 10, 2016. Some of the games between the teams were quicker than others but overall, the tournament displayed some pretty competitive matches between the teams. In the end, the Geaux Pros, a team consisting Mansfield Kiwanian Todd Simmons and his teammate Joel Verinder, outlasted Boots Hallford made up of Mansfield Kiwanian Steve Hallford and Wes Boots for the championship.

?

The Club was fortunate to partner with Cornhole for Community for this event. Although we did not have as many teams register for the event as we hoped, a foundation has been established that will allow the Mansfield Kiwanis to grow the tournament in the future.
