This single elimination, bracket-style competition will be hosted in the Onset Pub and Lounge on Sunday, Mar 11 from 3:00 pm-5:00 pm. The event is supported and presented by Henniker Brewing Company and the Onset Pub and Lounge. 

The event is free to participate in, but is 21+ only. Registrations will be accepted at 3:00 pm on Sun, Mar 11 in the Onset Pub.

A Cornhole bag in the hole (hole-in) is worth 3 points and a bag on the Cornhole board is worth 1 point (in-the-count or on-the-board). Play continues in this manner until a team has 21 or more points at the end of an inning. Cancellation scoring will be used. 


  • Single elimination, bracket style tournament
  • Winner take all 
  • Games played to 21
  • Tournament referees
  • Free play at end of tournament 


Decide who goes first (usually the ugliest person) then take turns throwing bags with your opponent. You throw one bag, then your opponent, then you, then your opponent, etc. Your feet may not go past the front edge of the board. If they do, a foul is called and you get pelted with cornhole bags. Also, a tossed bag may not touch the ground. If it hits the ground and bounces up on the board, remove it before any other bags are thrown. If its hanging off the board and touching the ground, remove that as well. When all 8 bags have been tossed to the other side, add up the score (see scoring below). If you earned the most points in that single round, your team will throw first in the next round. 


The Western NH Div III Champions will take home a prize pack from Crotched Mountain and Henniker Brewing Company and ALL THE BRAGGING RIGHTS. Bring your A game, because this is going to get intense.
