Official Event Details

Starting July 1st, and every Saturday, thereafter, Web Daytona will be challenging local businesses from (but not limited to) Volusia and Flagler Counties to cornhole matches. The boards are ready. The bags have been fluffed up. And you’ve officially been called out to participate

The first match will take place on home turf, City Island across from the Kress Building, in Daytona Beach at 140 S Beach St. Daytona Beach, FL. Challenges after that will be chosen on a case-by-case basis. Proceeds from these high-stakes matches will be for the benefit of Food Brings Hope, a charity working with the Volusia County School System to benefit economically-challenged students with food and outreach programs. They’re a cause that’s near to our hearts, and we are excited to be reaching out to them. 

Winning teams may donate any amount over $10. They have the honor of challenging the next business to maintain their lead, and carry the torch of the challenge onwards. Losing teams will be responsible for donating any amount over $10 towards to Food Brings Hope, or a charity of their choosing. They may redeem themselves, going toe-to-toe with a new competitor we will choose at random.

Official Rules

Because we are consummate professionals and, frankly, huge cornhole fans, we’ve committed to using the official gameplay rules for cornhole. We will outline these for you, here:

  • The game will be played using standard issue cornhole equipment, including regulation-sized boards and bean bags.
  • Games will be single-player matches: one-on-one games, with both players pitching into the same platform. Each player stands on an opposite side of the board, in the first round, before switching sides in the next round.
  • Players will toss four bags, each, in each round. The first to toss will be decided based on a coin toss, and tosses are taken alternatingly.
  • Full games consist of rounds, and after each round, scoring is calculated and tabulated. In order to move the game along, each contestant has a maximum of twenty seconds in which to throw their bag. This time starts once the player has physically moved into the pitching box.
  • Players must remain in the pitcher box during a throw – stepping out during a throw is considered as a foul. That player’s team receives no points for that pitch. If the bag happened to land on a board, it will be removed immediately.
  • Tosses must be underhand. Overhead shots, bags raising over the head, or the use of two hands are considered fouls. Players must also use the same hand to throw every toss of the game, or face a similar penalty.
  • Players who knowingly distract pitching teams during a throw will receive a warning, first, and a penalty, second, if they continue to do so.

Bags will be removed when any of the following errors is committed:

  • Players stepping over (or on) the foul line during a toss
  • Bags thrown after longer than twenty seconds in the pitching box
  • Changing out pitching boxes in the same round
  • When a bag touches the surface and the ground. Also when the bag lands anywhere but on the cornhole board, it’s considered a foul bag
  • If a bag is dropped after a swing
  • If a bag hits the ground first and bounces onto the cornhole board

For those of you who have yet to discover the great game of cornhole, we’ve included the official game rules, so you may prepare before meeting us on the field of battle:

In cornhole, players take turns pitching bags at their platforms and scoring until someone reaches 21 points. Getting a bag in-the-hole is worth three points. Landing one on the board is worth one point. The game lasts until both teams have run through their lineups, with teams being leveled out so that they have the same number of players on the field.
