Hilton Head Island Cornhole Champion!!

Some will not believe this, but every word is true. I am now the official Hilton Head Island Cornhole Champion. I won the cornhole tournament today, working through the brackets to the grand prize. I think most of you know what cornhole is. If not, you can check out the Rhett and Link Cornhole Video on YouTube. Just click on Rhett and Link and it’ll take you there.

The Egret Center did not have the official cornhole set. They had what is called the “Corn Toss Game.” It’s the same thing, but they used a plastic type board instead of the cornhole plywood board. This was so they could patent it and start their own brand. It’s the same game, just a different kind of board. It was actually more difficult in that the board was plastic. The bags slid more, which meant a tactical and mechanical adjustment on my part. You had to aim at the lower end of the board because the bags would slide further up the board and potentially off the board if you landed the bag up near the hole. Also if you went for a “swisher” you had to nail it or the bag would inevitably slide off the board and you know what that means. No points for you!!

Well, enough of that.

The weather was scorching and I’m not sure why they set the boards out in the sunshine. It made winning all the more special. 

Who played? Well Lucia suggested I let you know. 

No one really showed up. Only Lucia, Tristen, Haydn, Ansa and my 85-year old father-in-law. Tristen, Haydn and Ansa didn’t want to play. I whooped Lucia pretty good. And then went on to beat my father-in-law in a nip and tuck match to the very end. I prevailed and won a HHI coozie. I actually won twice, but gave one of the prizes to my father-in-law.

I’m still a bit perplexed as to why no one showed up but us.

For those of you who would like your own set and you live locally, I may be able to hook you up with the whole shoot’in match for $35. That’s two cornhole boards and eight bean bags, which are really corn bags. No promises, but I will try.

    I’d like more info on how to get a set? Sounds like a good price. I’ve seen them in stores for much more, $100.

    I have a fellow at church that is interested in more boards and apparently is promoting more sets are available. I think if you can hook me up with more sets then this fellow could use them, if anyone responds with interest.

    We took our set camping and had a blast, course i never ran up on anyone as good as you!

    Well, it’s clear that God has given you a new calling. Not to replace your old one, but perhaps this calling is simply meant to challenge your ability to resist the great temptation toward athletic pride that must be theatening to overwhelm you now. I will pray for you, my friend.
