Bbigtencornholeig Ten Cornhole Tournament

Help represent the Illini at the first ever Big Apple Big Ten Cornhole Tournament!  Aside from showing off your prowess at tossing bean bags, you'll get to enjoy good food, good drinks, and fellow NYC Illini and other Big Teners, all for a good cause.  Non-cornholers are welcome to join us as the Illini cheering section!!

This will be a 28 team single elimination tournament, with two two-player teams from each Big Ten school.  Don't worry if you aren't on a team already - teams will be formed at the event, and tourney rules will allow unlimited player substitutions between rounds to maximize participation.   Extra boards will be set up for non-tournament play as well.   Don't like cornhole?  Just come and hang out!


Proceeds from the event will benefit the Best Friends Animal Society.  You can also donate directly to this fundraiser by clicking here.
