Fort Worth plays cornhole for a good cause

June 9, 2017 by  

Residents in Fort Worth and the surrounding areas are loosening up their pitching arms in anticipation of the Cornament Cornhole Tournament. The event combines competition, games, and entertainment all to benefit a state charity.

Cornhole is a game that involves pitching four bean bags over a field and trying to land them on a wooden box or in the hole at the center of the box (the cornhole). Landing on the box is worth one point while landing in the hole is worth three. The tournament will involve teams of two facing off in an elimination style competition. The winners will receive prize packages including promotional products from local businesses, vouchers, and more. Only 48 teams are allowed to enter the tournament.

The competition will also feature a series of side games that visitors can participate in. At the end of the evening the champions of these side games will also win prizes. The event proceeds go to benefit the Epilepsy Foundation Texas. Every year the charity sends children with epilepsy for a free summer camp. The goal of the tournament is to raise enough funds to pay for twenty children to attend the camp this year.

The Cornament Cornhole Tournament will be held on June 23 from 7:00 to 11:00 p.m. at Martin House Brewing Company, located at 220 S. Sylvania Ave. Tickets cost $50 a person and teams of two can register for $250. Anyone looking for more info should visit the website.
