Each team will play three games per night during the regular season, with a one-week tournament to follow regular season play.

    This just started last night. They said they are still allowing more teams to join and they will pro-rate the fees depending on when you join. It was a pretty fun time and cool playing inside the Residence Inn downtown. My team ended up playing 12 games over about 3 hours.

    When I see the term “cornhole” and actually don’t think about giggling, does that mean that I’m officially a Midwesterner? Before moving here, that’s a term I’d only read in William Burroughs novels. Also, we called the game “beanbag toss”.

    I’m with Amy. It is pretty funny. And beanbag toss is lame. So is ‘sacks’.. .which is what it is called in the Chicago area. That is equally evocative… and dumb..

    … I like Cornhole.

    I can find humor in the term “sack toss”. What’s the origin of the word “cornhole” anyway?

    i’d like to know that one. “sack toss” is kind of funny, but gives me a vision of testicles. i think i might start saying that though. sack toss. it makes me smile.

    I thought the name came from “corn in the hole” because the bags were filled with corn and uh, there’s a hole? But what do I know, I’m from Texas, we play horseshoes :)

    Edited for clarity…
