Recap: Cornhole for a Cause 2017

We explained cornhole back in May in the aptly titled "What is Cornhole?" and hope you retained what you learned so you can immerse yourself in our recap of this year's tournament.

The day started like any other Saturday, but soon, 26 teams would arrive to compete for the title of NVRDC's Cornhole for a Cause Champion. The teams identified themselves with some pretty clever names. Some were legal puns, "Write Writs Right Wrongs" and some cornhole-themed, like "Corny in Bethesda". Then some (we're looking at you "Wubba Lubba Dub Dub") were chosen just to twist the tongues of our fearless leaders and emcees, NVRDC Co-Executive Directors, Nikki Charles and Bridgette Stumpf.

This was our 5th annual cornhole tournament and, like those before it, was a double elimination set up. Fifteen minute rounds go by fast when you're playing for such a worthy cause. One by one, the teams were eliminated and it came down to the final two teams: Bund Bon and Mike's Silver Locks. It was a fantastic match up and, in the end, it was the undefeated team Bund Bon who conquered Mike's Silver Locks to clinch the title: Champion. Both teams walked away with fantastic prize baskets from our generous supporters. 

It was a great event. See for yourself in the photos below!
