Cornchuck tournament to benefit Parent/Child Center

CORNWALL — The Addison County Parent Child Center will hold its first annual Cornwall Cornchuck Tournament fundraiser on Sunday, Sept. 15, from 3-8 p.m. at the home of ACPCC board member Woody Jackson and his wife, Ingrid Jackson, in Cornwall.
Cornchuck, or “cornhole,” is a lawn game similar to horseshoes that involves throwing bean bags at a pair of boards 30 feet apart. Points are scored if the bean bags land on the board or go through a hole in it. Woody Jackson, who is organizing the event, has crafted 12 complete board sets, each of which will be painted by a well known Vermont artist. Several boards are already on display in Middlebury retail stores. The game sets will be auctioned off at the conclusion of the tournament.
The event will be played according to American Cornhole Association rules. There will be novice and expert brackets and the tournament will be played in a double elimination format. Teams of two are encouraged to register early so brackets can be set up. The entry fee is $50 per team.
Woodchuck Cider and Vermont Bicycle Touring are sponsoring the event. There will be awards, prizes and refreshments. Proceeds from registration and the board auction will benefit the Parent Child Center’s programs, which benefit primarily young parents and families with education housing and support.
The Jackson home is at 1301 Cider Mill Road in Cornwall. For information or to register, email [email protected] or call 802-999-2064.
