    Anyone interested in a bags tournament during tailgates?

    First, an apology. I'm sorry, but as much as I love to play, I just can't call it "cornhole" with a straight face. That name is a marketer's worst nightmare.

    But I digress. I'm interested in trying to start a series of bags tournaments to be held during tailgates. I haven't thought it through but I wanted to post this to gauge interest among Cyclone fans and solicit feedback.

    I envision 3-4 sets of boards (or more, if we can get them) and a limited number of entries so we can control how long it would take. We could either set times for each matchup or send people a text when it's their turn to play and give them 10 minutes to show up. That way we minimize people standing around and waiting.

    And of course there would be an entry fee and payouts.

    Anyone interested? And any suggestions on how to run it? All feedback is welcome.

    I would definitely have some interest in playing. Any time there is a chance to win some money playing bags, I'm up for it.

    I feel like this is an example of when someone mentions how good they are at something but they end up being terrible. Always funny.

    Have I mentioned that I'm a phenomenal golfer?

    I'll just look for the person that's cursing because he happens to be having an "off" day.

    I would definitely be interested in a bags tourney. We just finished our new bags set, pretty sweet, if I had a pic on my work computer I would upload one.

    I would be interested in seeing it if you posted it. I'm about to build my own set. Hoping to get it done in time for the first game but that might be a stretch due to other commitments. I've found some great resources on building them but I haven't had time to sit down and map out a plan.

    Found one on my phone, the flash is too bright but you get the idea. Bought the bags last night at the Valley Junction farmers market.

    Those are very nice, and the design seems original too.

    I'm getting close to finishing a set that I built but I just used a paint and decal design that I found online.

    Re: Anyone interested in a bags tournament during tailgates?

    I would be in for it. Also have extra sets of boards to use if needed. Are we going teams or singles for this??? Either way be a fun way to meet others.

    Keep me updated on this.

    When doing this have rules and how you are going to score the games on paper. Also have someone that is sober and not playing keeping score. I have saw best friends all most throw down over a point when drunk playing bags, just think what could happen if you dont know the guys you are playing.
