1st Ever Cornhole Tourney was a Success!

It was 71 degrees and sunny. The weather couldn’t have been any better! The teams rolled in all with different motives. There was 32 teams all together (64 individuals plus spectators). Some came to win it all, while others came to support friends and just have a good time. Talk’s Tavern was a great host. They supplied food and even hooked up the individuals with red solo cups to take their drinks out into the tournament field.

After the round robin was a little break. This is when the JRF Panthers announced the 50/50 winner and held the Moneyshot contest. The moneyshot contest was quite the success and challenging. After several tries (More than 10 contestants), Grace Henderson finally made 2 out of 4 bags to take home the $100!!

After the moneyshot it was straight to the playoffs, which was single elimination. The JRF Panthers team did not fare to well as all the players teams were eliminated in the sweet sixteen with the exception of Joshua Bibbus carrying Derek’s team to the semifinals were they placed fourth. The eventually winners were Mike and Evan Pollack as they took home the $450 dollars as well as medals.
