Cornhole Tournament at National Cherry Festival Kicked off Tuesday, Open Spots for Wednesday

The Second Annual Cornhole Tournament at the National Cherry Festival kicked off Tuesday.

Tuesday’s games were sold out, but there are still spots open for Wednesday’s competition. And it’s a tough competition out there.

You bring your own partner and after the first four games you’re split up into different tiers. Some of the players travel all around the state, but say there’s nothing quite like playing in Traverse City.

“Oh yeah, definitely at home, this is… look at… we live in a paradise here and we’re outside throwing bags,” Ken Goodhue, a cornhole player form Traverse City, said. “It’s a great sport, we enjoy it. I retired and I picked up cornhole, and I got addicted to it.”

Wednesday’s tournament is happening form noon until 6 p.m. in the beer tent at the Open Space.
