Bean Bag/Cornhole/Tailgate Toss Players Wanted

Cornhole is a game that goes by many different names – bean bag toss, baggo, tailgate toss (there are many other names listed on the Wikipedia page too).  It is kind of like horse shoes but with bean bags instead.  Click here for game instructions.

There is quite a following of the game here in Western, PA. PUMP offers a league that plays Tue nights at Buffalo Blues in Shadyside – more info here. The Double Wide Grill has some cornhole boards out on their patio too.

Bernie George has organized a few tournaments and is looking for other people who want to play – if you are interested leave a comment here or send me an email info – at –

Want to learn more about Cornhole? Check out the American Cornhole Association.

I have also set up a Google group for anyone interested in Cornhole events in Western, PA – just add your email below.
