Cornhole Championship To Benefit Easter Seals
8/12 11:49 pm
Throwing bean bags into holes could really help some people with disabilities.
Easter Seals is getting set for an annual tailgate bash, including a World Cornhole Championship.
On Tuesday some professional cornholers – that's right "professional" cornholers – visited the Easter Seals office in Walnut Hills to offer some pointers to workers with disabilities.
"They're all really proud of what they do," said Lisa Doxsee, spokesperson for Easter Seals, "and so it's really nice to show off their boards to these professionals, as well as the professionals get a chance to see what it's like to actually have someone who's building these sets."
The big tournament will be all day Saturday on Fountain Square.
Cornhole Pros to Battle at Fountain Square in Cincinnati
On August 16, 2008, 16 of the top 20 professional cornhole players in the country, as recognized by the ACO CornyForty ranking system, will compete for the $6,500.00 prize money in the Easter Seals Tailgate Bash Cornhole Tournament sponsored by Krogers and Moerlein Lager and Ales at Fountain Square in the heart of Cincinnati, Ohio. Cornhole is the game that has turned the country upside down. What was a backyard game of fun has reached the level of sport bringing Cornhole Players into Cincinnati from Georgia, North Carolina, Indiana, and other Mid Western States.
The Easter Seals Tailgate Bash is an Invitation Only Tournament of 16 of the ACO best cornhole players. It is a singles tournament and the winner will go home with a wad of cash. This is the second year for this event and the ACO - the event organizer, anticipates a large crowd. "Last year there wasn't as much of a buzz about cornhole as there is this year. Players want bragging rights and Fountain Square is the battleground," said Frank Geers President of American Cornhole Organization. The Easter Seals Tailgate Bash offers food, drink, a Cincinnati Landmark, and some great cornhole action. All proceeds go to help youth and adults with disabilities and disadvantages in Greater Cincinnati gain self-sufficiency through work.
