CORNHOLE!!!

Have you ever played cornhole?

Well if you haven't you should.  Who would have ever thought throwing a bean bag in hopes to land in a hole on the board would be so addicting?  Not a.d.d. me.  But I am hooked nonetheless.  Not many people know about it in Georgia, but whenever I hear the sound of beanbags hitting small wood boards or the joyous shouts of "CORNHOLE!", a tear is brought to my eye.

I learned of this game several summers ago while working up in Maryland.  In fact, for the past two summers, I attended "The Cornhole Tournament of the World".  Now technically, this wasn't validated by anyone other than the staff I worked with, but with all the hype surrounding it, you would have thought that it was the cornhole tournament of the world.  

Right now, history is being made in Edgewater, Maryland with the annual "Cornhole Tournament of the World" which is hosted by several staff members.  Who will be victorious?  Only time, and hopefully cottagegirl will tell...

It was some of the best games yet. High drama and costumes too. Ben P and Chris (food service manager) won in the final game against Tiffany S and Michael W.

We missed you being here too, friend!

Ok, so I was lounging at my pool this afternoon when three guys come into the pool area carrying these wooden boards and a couple sacks full of small beanbags. They were playing Cornhole! How weird is that?! They had their wooden boards painted with the Georgia Tech logo and everything. Just thought you'd want to know!
