Bags, Baggo, Cornhole, no matter what you call it, the tournament has a limited number of two-person team entries (30) and will feature three different divisions - Female, Male, and Co-Ed. By no means is this an olympic-level event although team uniforms are highly encouraged. We're just here to have fun for a good cause! Check out our Tournament House Rules here.
You have questions. We have answers.
When and where is this held? Friday, August 9 from 1:00 - 5:00pm at Galleria Marchetti, 825 W. Erie in Chicago. Participating team arrival is at 12:30pm.
What do you mean, Bags? You may call it cornhole, bean bag toss or baggo. They're one and the same; we just call it bags.
Why are there divisions? We created the male, female and co-ed divisions as an answer to diversifying a typically male-dominated game. Our goal is to ensure that the playing field is kept even, to allow players of all genders the chance to participate.
What division do I qualify for? You are welcome to register as part of the division that fits with your preferred gender identity.
What is included for attendees? Tickets (both team and spectator) include food, drink and entertainment - aka watching adults relive their college years! Team tickets also get you a bracket slot for your chosen division.
Who can play? This year's tournament is open to 30 teams - 10 each for the women's, men's and co-ed divisions. If you like to have a good time, want to support a good cause and enjoy meeting new people, you can sign up!
Do I get a prize? Nothing monetary, but you'll get a trophy and some pretty sick bragging rights.
You're a 501 (c) 3. What's tax deductible? Sponsorships and donations are tax deductible, but tickets are not.

Do teams need uniforms? No, but it's encouraged.
What's the format? This is a single-elimination tournament. Inter-divisional play will be held in brackets to determine three division champions, with games limited to 15 minutes or 21 points, whatever comes first. After the champions are crowned, the two champion teams with the least points scored against them along their road to victory will play for the title of overall champion. The championship game will be first to 21 points, with no time limit. After the main play has wrapped up, we'll have open non-competitive (at least in our eyes) play for the rest of the afternoon.
