I'm not sure what the fascination is with throwing something onto a pole, in a basket, or in a hole but humans are competitive by nature, and if there's a way we can make a game out of something, by golly we will. Remember when everybody played horseshoes? How about washers? Lawn darts maybe? I seem to remember a game when I was a kid that involved bean bags.

Well, in recent years cornhole has become all the rage, the "bean" bag has been replaced by a bag of dry corn and instead of trying to get the bag inside a circle, we have constructed boards with holes in them to toss the bags into. Not a complicated game at all, but a ton of fun.

The Junior League of Texarkana is now signing up teams for their first-ever Cornhole Tournament for charity. "Toss for a Cause" is what the Junior League is calling it and with the popularity of the cornhole game these days, this should be a no brainer. They are looking for 2-person teams to register using the online form at the Junior League website.

The tournament will be their first fundraiser for 2022 and the inaugural tournament of this kind for the Junior League Texarkana. According to the Junior League Facebook Page:

Make a Change! The Make a Change project will provide diapers and wipes to low-income families through Opportunities, Inc. in Texarkana, AR. This fundraiser will allow Opportinities, Inc. to continue services and meet a need for these families.

The tournament will take place at Crossties, 324 Broad St in downtown Texarkana on Sunday, February 27, starting at 2 PM.
