2018 - The Year of the Bag!

The hottest bag in the game!

You might think a bag snob is someone who plays cornhole in a scarf?  Well, you would be wrong and besides, that's a pretty suave look!  The 2018 Bring Your Own Bags (BYOB) trend has created snobs out of us all.  If you are someone who frequently asks "Can we use our own bags?", then welcome to the club!

Is BYOB a good thing?

Admittedly, in the spirit of fairness, I was not an early fan of the BYOB option.  For every "tennis players choose their own racquets", I would retort, that the "tournament balls are all the same."  Nike and Wilson make great basketballs, but all NBA players must dribble a Spalding.  And then there is the issue of enforcement.  I have no desire to carry around a ruler and a scale, and I reckon that several of you may not really know how long 6" is!  Couple that with a New England demographic that condones cheating and I thought we were on track for a train wreck...But, our first BYOB tournament, February's Triple Threat Throwdown, was a smashing success with no issues!  So, dare I say that I was not exactly right?  Maybe, maybe not.  To be honest, watching players put wear and tear on their own bags while mine sat nicely on the shelf is what really convinced me to embrace the BYOB format.  For tournament directors, BYOB can be a very good thing!

The Bag Market is alive and well!

If you are reading this blog, then you probably do not need me to tell you where to find a good bag.  Nonetheless, AllCornhole.com has been our ride or die supplier for years and I have nothing but great things to say about Chad and his team.   They are also the manufacturer of the extremely popular Slide-Rite Series.  Take advantage of the April free shipping special and Buy Your Own Bags today!
