Horseshoe & Cornhole Tournament

Saturday, August 26, 2017

LOCATED AT DEL MAR DOG BEACH
Registration 8am • Tournament starts at 9am

  • Back by popular demand! The Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito is proud to present the newest event, hosted by the Jr. Board of BGC San Dieguito, our annual Horseshoe & Cornhole Tournament! After beginning two years ago with just horseshoes, our event has grown to include a cornhole tournament.

    Enjoy the day at the Del Mar Dog Beach with your closest friends (and meet some new ones too!) while enjoying a friendly tournament of either horseshoes OR cornhole. Round one is the “round robin” round, where each team plays four games. Top two teams from each court play head to head in a single elimination match.  Top eight teams move on to round two where single elimination games take place until we have a first place team!

    Who doesn’t love an audience?! If you don’t want to play, sign up as a spectator and watch the tournament go down while enjoying drinks and food from the sidelines.

    Between games, enjoy beers from our beer sponsor (TBD) and food from our food sponsor (TBD) with your feet in the sand.

    Bring your sunscreen and sunglasses and we will take it from there!

    TOURNEY RULES

    DSC00515

    HORSESHOE TOURNAMENT RULES

    Cancellation Scoring – the ringers of one contestant cancel the ringers of the opponent. Note: only one contestant can score in each inning.

    Rule 1: Ringers are awarded 3 points. To qualify as a ringer, a straight edge must be able to touch both points of the horseshoe.

    Rule 2: If nobody scores a ringer, the closest horseshoe to the stake scores one point. This includes “leaners,” or horseshoes touching the stake but not qualified as a ringer. The horseshoe does not have to lean to qualify as a leaner, and the points remain the same no matter how close the leaner is as compared to another leaner. One leaner by each team would cancel each other out.

    Rule 3: Give two points to the player who threw both horseshoes closer to the stake than his or her opponent’s.

    Rule 4: For the “closest to the stake” points, horseshoes must be within 6 inches of the stake to qualify. (length of the horseshoe)

    Rule 5: Cancellation rules: The twist in the game of horseshoes is the ability to cancel out your opponent’s points, allowing for strategy within the game. If one player scores a ringer, the points will be cancelled if the opposing player tops it with another ringer during the same turn. The same rule applies for all other equal plays during the course of one turn. For instance, if both players throw a ringer and a leaner, no points are awarded. If one player throws two ringers, and the other player throws one, the player with two ringers gets three points for that turn.

    Rule 6: If a player scores one ringer and has the closest horseshoe with his remaining play, the player gets points for both.

    Scoring: Games are to 11 points. Winner will be awarded 2 extra points for a total of 13. The loser will be awarded the points they scored to be counted towards their round robin total. I.E . Score is 11-7, winner gets 13 , and loser gets 7. Top 16 teams will go through to the second round (Single elimination). Winner from each court automatically goes through. Last 6 teams to go through will be decided based on highest score. In case of a tie on those 6 teams: then a single pitch (by each player) playoff will occur to determine the team to advance.

    Round Robin: You have one court. Two teams should always be playing and the other 3 teams should rotate officiating/keeping score.

    Single Elimination Rounds: Follow same rules as above

    General Rules: To determine which team pitches first please use the “rock, paper, scissors” methodology. After that, the player who goes first is the one player that most recently scored.

    Each player shall throw all their shoes before the opponent on their side throws. Then the remaining players (pitching from the other cornhole platform) continue in the same manner until all four horseshoes are delivered and the inning completed.

    One contestant from each team shall be at each end of the court. When contestants are pitching their shoes, the contestants at the other end shall be well behind & to the side of pitcher’s box (for their own safety).

    CORNHOLE TOURNAMENT RULES

    Rule 1: 1 point for bag on board. 3 points for in the hole.

    Rule 4: Roll-ups/Bounce-ups DO count.

    Scoring: Games are to 21 points. Winner will be awarded 2 extra points for a total of 23. The loser will be awarded the points they scored to be counted towards their round robin total. I.E . Score is 21-17, winner gets 23 , and loser gets 17. Top 16 teams will go through to the second round (Single elimination). Winner from each court automatically goes through. Last 6 teams to go through will be decided based on highest score. In case of a tie on those 6 teams: then a single toss (by each player) playoff will occur to determine the team to advance.

    Round Robin: You have one court. Two teams should always be playing and the other 3 teams should rotate officiating/keeping score.

    Single Elimination Rounds: Follow same rules as above

    General Rules: To determine which team tosses first please use the “rock, paper, scissors” methodology. After that, the player who goes first is the one player that most recently scored.

    The first side of contestants alternate tossing their corn bags until they have thrown all four bags, then the remaining contestant (tossing from the other cornhole platform) continue to alternate in the same manner until all four bags are delivered and the inning completed.

    One contestant from each team shall be at each end of the court. When contestants are tossing their bags, the contestants at the other end shall be well behind & to the side of pitcher’s box (for their own safety).
