Woody

– Refers to any cornhole bag that has been pitched and remains on the cornhole board playing surface at the conclusion of the game. Each woody is 1 pt. 

Cornhole

– Refers to any cornhole bag that has been holed. Each cornhole is 3 pts. 

Cancellation Scoring

– The approved method of scoring for the sport of cornhole is “cancellation scoring”. In cancellation scoring, the points of one player cancel out the points of their opponent. Using this method, only one player/team can score in each frame. 

Example: Red achieves (1) woody and (2) cornholes. Blue achieves (2) woodies and (0) cornholes. 7 red points – 2 blue points = Red scores 5 points for that frame. 

Foul Bags

– Bags contacting the ground before reaching the playing surface and bags pitched when a player has crossed the foul line are foul bags

– If a foul bag lands on the playing surface or comes to rest touching the ground and the board, it must be removed immediately

Winners report results of match and score immediately upon completion to the event coordinator.

Forfeit 

– In the winners bracket play if a team is late the coordinator will move to the next game with no penalty 

– If it is the last game of a round the missing team will be placed in the losers bracket 

– If a team concedes a match or has started and ceases to play during an event, all prior wins or losses will still stand and any points earned will still be awarded. Ceasing to play in an event in this manner must be announced to the event coordinator 

NOTE: Men’s, Women’s & Mixed will play on the same night for each division. If you have a male or female playing on both the Mixed and Men’s/Women’s team, you run the risk of a forfeit.
