How Did You Discover Cornhole Game?

One of the regular features of the blog is going to be talking about how people have discovered the game of cornhole.  I’ve been accepting submissions for this for some time and never got around to publishing most of them, but now I’m going to feature them on the blog.  Should be interesting to see how different areas of the country came to know the game.  Here’s the first one from Dave in Albuquerque, NM.

Well it was a little over ago at my daughter and son-in laws house in NC.  We were visiting in April and enjoying the not yet suffocating humidity and cool weather and several cold adult beverages when he mentioned a new game he just discovered.  He brought it out explained the rules and we threw some practice rounds…WHAT A BLAST!!!  So my wife picked up a cheap, easy carry set that we have used for several months.  Daughter and son-in-law came to visit in NM last week and together we built our own set of boards.  Now I need the regulation, weatherproof bags to replace the smaller version bags I had with the “other” game.  I have to put a finish on the boards and am looking forward to having friends over to enjoy the [real] game as soon as everything is ready.

 

Here’s another entry from Dorinda:

My husband started playing cornhole w/the guys at work.  He made a set and we play w/friends.  I’m horrible at it but it’s so much fun and thank goodness that my friend’s husband is bad too as it helps to offset our scores.  My husband has built several sets for friends and each set is better than the last.  My favorite was the camo, Duck’s Unlimited, stained set that he built for our future son-in-law.  My husband shares the love of the game. :)

 

Here’s an entry from Lorie:

We 1st seen people playing at a campground in Mrytle Beach SC. Then we were asked to play along with some camping neighbors in Ca..The kids enjoyed it so much we mist have our own. Great way to spend time with family and friends while making memories that last a lifetime.

 

Here’s one from Tommy in Salisbury,NC:

This past summer we were at the beach here in North Carolina and our brothers relatives introduced us to the game of Cornhole.
We were divided into teams and brackets were drawn up and levels of play were established.  Games went on for ours with a high level of interested being maintained.  Teams were equally divided according to skill level and therefore, everyone played a role and competed on an equal
footing.

 

The youngsters enjoyed playing as much as the older group. Following this introduction’ we returned home and became interested in playing Cornhole with my grandchildren. We have 15 grandchildren, so we were delighted with their interest. I obtained plans and built a set of boards and ordered the bags.
Since then , I discovered your website and the wonderful selection of boards and bags that you have. Now i have decided to order four complete sets from you with boards and bags.

  1. This is the second time I have ordered bags from you and love how durable they are and how fast they were shipped. Thank you and will be ordering more in the near future.
