Register for 7th Annual Beacon-Holio Cornhole Tourney on Sept. 18

UPDATE: Thanks for your support!

The seventh annual Beacon-Holio Cornhole Tournament is set for Saturday, Sept. 18 at Beacon Hose. Registration and shootaround will begin at 9:30 a.m., and bags will fly at 11 a.m. with big cash prizes on the line. The nuts and bolts of the tournament are below; click here for the rules, which will be the same as those used by the American Cornhole League.

DIVISIONS: There will be two divisions as designated by the ACL — Advanced and Competitive. Teams must sign up to play in one of the two divisions at registration. The tournament director reserves the right to move teams to a different division if they are found to be sandbagging or violating the spirit of competition. If you’re not sure, more about the ACL’s divisions can be found here.

ENTRY FEES: Registration fees will be $100 per team in both divisions. Fees are payable via cash, check, Venmo, or PayPal on the day of the tournament.

PRIZES: The prize pool will be determined by the number of teams in the tournament — the prizes in the Advanced division will be approximately double those in the Competitive division. Last year, we awarded $2,500 in cash prizes to the top three finishers in each division, including $1,000 to the Advanced champs and $500 to the Competitive champs.

LUNCH AND DRINKS: All-you-can-eat lunch will be included for players with a menu to be determined. Beers (for those 21 and older) will be available for $2 each.

COURTS : About 10 courts will be set up inside and outside of firehouse. Beacon Hose and our friends from Central Connecticut Cornhole have the best boards from West Georgia Cornhole. We operate the tournament using Scoreholio (download the app before coming — you can pre-register there).

BAGS: All teams must bring and use their own bags, and bags must meet ACL certifications. All bags must be filled with synthetic material and cannot produce any residue upon contact with the boards.

FORMAT: Teams will play several round-robin games as determined by the tournament director (approximately four, depending on attendance and time considerations), and teams will be seeded for the elimination tournaments by records in pool play. All teams will advance to the elimination tournaments, which will follow a double-elimination format. All pairings and brackets will be tracked on Scoreholio.

PARKING: Limited parking will be available at Beacon Hose next to the Beacon Falls Senior Center and the River’s Edge Pub and Grille. More parking is available along the street shoulders on North Main Street, in the commuter parking lot across from Gabe’s Automotive, and in the train station parking lot on Railroad Avenue.
