    Default Retriever cornhole boards

    I made some with my logo on them this week. Not sure how popular it is is other parts of the country but around here you see them everywhere. The parking lots at a race or a ballgame looks like a corn bag bombing range.

    I had never heard of this game (at least not in the part of Oregon that I live in). I went out to Ohio to visit my sister last month and my Brother-in-law asked "if we played corn hole in Oregon". I said, it depends on what that means in Ohio. Clearly, it's a game that's spreading rapidly. I spent the rest of the long weekend trying to represent.

    For those of you that haven't heard of it, go to www.cornholehowto.com .

    Nice looking game boards you have there.

    Those are awesome looking boards! I went to watch the fireworks on the 4th and the park was littered with cornhole sets.

    A variation we play in the south is called "washers". Boards have three holes and you throw galvanized washers that are three to four inches in diameter. Each hole has a point value and you play to a specific score. Go over that number and you have to start over.

    it looks very nice.
    And, after all these years
    now I understand what Beavis and Butthead were talking about.
    is the hole for the T.P.?

    The term "cornhole" refers to something totally different in Alabama.

    Great looking boards! This game is very popular in college and for tailgating. Really fun game I have a couples sets sitting in the garage from my college days, good game to play when you have friends over. It has actually got so popular that there is a national tourney for it and its really popular in the south.

    With two 5-gallon buckets and a handful of bumpers, you can create a variation of the game.

    Great for honing birdboy skills in your 10-year-old grandkids.
