Corn Hole Tournament and Cookout

Join us for our 5th Annual Cornhole Tournament and Cookout! This time, we’re doing it tailgate style! Similar to horseshoes, Cornhole is a lawn game in which teams of two take turns throwing bags of corn at a raised platform with a hole in the far end. A bag in the hole scores 3 points, while one on the platform scores 1 point. Play continues until a team reaches the score of 21. The Cornhole Tournament will be played tournament style with teams of two players competing in a single elimination bracket. Prizes will be awarded! Join us for a morning of team spirit, fun, laughter, and a yummy lunch. FREE to the public, but all participants must bring a dessert or side to share. Event is limited to 24 attendees. Register by Wednesday, September 12th at 5pm.5 to cover the cost of lunch. Payable to the AAB. Please register by Monday, June 25 at 5pm.

Wheel of Fortune

Wheel of Fortune is a television game show fondly referred to as “America’s Game.” The show features a competition in which contestants solve word puzzles, similar to those used in Hangman, to win cash and prizes determined by spinning a giant carnival wheel. We will do the same in our version of “Wheel” except we will compete to see who will win some exciting gift cards (sorry, no cash or cars awarded here). Join in the fun for our first ever Wheel of Fortune! $5 to cover the cost of lunch. Payable to the AAB. Please register by Tuesday, November 13th at 5 p.m.
