Players Wanted For Wilmington KofC Cornhole League Starting November 9

WILMINGTON, MA — The Wilmington Knights of Columbus has formed a cornhole league.

This Blind Draw Tournament League will run for seven consecutive Thursday nights, from November 9, 2017 through December 28, 2017, in the Wilmington KofC’s upper hall. Bags fly at 7pm.

The league format is geared towards all levels of players and will feature 80% payout.

League Eligibility and Non-League Players

To be eligible for the league, you may either pay $50 on opening night or $10/night to be eligible for points and cash prizes. If you cannot commit to playing every Thursday, but still want to join in the fun, you can play for $5/night as a non-league player. Non-league players will not earn points, nor be eligible for cash prizes.

League Format

BLIND DRAW

The league is a series of seven blind draw tournaments. League members and non-league members will participate in the double-elimination tournaments. League members will earn points based on the table below. Each team member earns the same amount of points. Points earned in the blind draw tournaments will count 85% towards a point total in the standings. A player’s top six tournament results will factor into the standings.

SKINNY BOARD FRAME GAME

League members must complete a 10-frame, Frame Game on the skinny boards. What is a frame game? You toss four bags just like in a normal match; however, you will not be playing against a player. The player tallies his or her score after each round. At the completion of a round, the player walks down to the far board and repeats the process. You must treat the frame game as a singles match meaning that if you toss with your arm over the board in frame n, then you must toss with your arm away from the board in frame n+1. If two players finish with the same score, then they both are awarded the same amount of points based on their finishing position. Once a player begins a frame game, it must be recorded on record. No do-overs for a bad start! Frame games will be weighted at 15% of a player’s point total in the standings; the top six results will factor into the standings.
