The game goes by many different names.  Some know it as 'Cornhole'.  Others simply call it 'Bags'.  Still others may call this lawn game 'Tailgate Toss', 'Baggo', 'Bean Bag Toss' or 'Corn Toss'.  I have even heard it called 'Lawn Darts For Drunks'.  (But that could just be one yard party I was at last summer.)

No matter what you call it, this lawn game, which has players taking turns throwing bags of corn at a raised platform with a hole in the far end is popular and fun to play.  And now you could also get some cash for playing.

If you take throwing 'Bags' seriously or just for fun, get a partner and register your team for the 2014 Teapot Days Bean Bag Tournament.  The tournament is this Saturday, June 21, 2014 in Tea, South Dakota as part of their annual Teapot Days Celebration.

Cost to register your two-person team is $50 with cash prizes being paid on tournament day.  Only the first 48 teams registered are guaranteed a spot.  This double-elimination tournament will be held rain or shine and all registration fees are non-refundable.  Proceeds from the tournament will benefit TAPPS, the Tea Area Parents for Prom Safety.

Team check in will begin at 11:45am on Saturday, June 21, with the Bean Bag Tournament beginning at 1pm at the Tea City Park on the basketball court.  No outside coolers will be allowed, but a beer garden will be available.  Questions can be emailed to Melissa Schmeidt at missys@sio.midco.net.
