Cornhole Rules:
Double elimination or round robin format based on number registered will be played. Two boards will be placed 20 feet apart. Player who starts will be decided by the flip of a coin. Game winner reaches 40 points. A tie will warrant a sudden death playoff toss. Higher scorer last round goes first. Bag may bounce onto the board. The winner will be declared at total of 40 points.


Washoes Rules:
Double elimination format. Boards will be placed 8 feet apart. Flip of coin for first toss or round or square openings. Scoring: The closest hole scores 1 point, middle hole 3 points, and farthest hole 5 points. Last player to score tosses first during the following series. To score, the washoe must be completely in the hole and touching bottom or other washoes already in the hole. If a player reaches 21 exactly, prior to opponent tossing, all remaining washoes, and the opposing player is waiting to toss, the player with 21 points shall let opponent try to cancel. If successful, then player gives the toss back to original contestant. To cancel scores, the opponent must cover a washoe in the hole with his/her own, one for one. Any washoe in a hole counts for that player whose mark is on it even if knocked in by opponent. Score is final when last player has tossed and failed to cancel scoring.
