Cornhole is a lawn game in which players take turns throwing 16 ounce bags of corn kernels at a raised platform with a hole in the far end. A bag in the hole scores 3 points, while one on the board scores 1 point. Play continues until a team reaches or exceeds the score of 21.

On Friday night, join us at 7:00pm as we host a Cornhole tournament that benefits Breast Cancer research and Operation Airdrop. Thanks to our Sponsor, Bridgeport Eye Center.
