Tournament Day Information

We hope you are looking forward to play this Saturday!  To help us run a smooth, enjoyable tournament, we have prepared an outline for the event that is available here that includes directions, cornhole rules, and general information.  Also, for registration purposes, we ask that you look at this document to learn if you are assigned to the A bracket or B bracket.  Registration for the A bracket will be to the left of the registration tent and registration for the B bracket will be to the right of the tent.  Similarly, all courts will be positioned on the same side; A play will be to the left and B play to the right.  A map of the site is available here.

Should you have any questions, please call our Cornhole for Cancer coordinator, Megan Waltrich, at 484-942-0976.

There is a possibility of storms later in the day on Saturday, so we are exploring holding the tournament inside the Archbishop Ryan girl’s gym. Be on the lookout for updates about the possible re-location!

Registration

Join us for a Cornhole Tournament to support an organization near and dear to our hearts!  We were the recipients of an FPS Respite Experience in 2017. We try to give back to the people/organizations that supported us during Rich’s illness. We will have food trucks, music, and For Pete’ Sake Cornhole for Cancer shirts will be for sale.

This tournament is a Round Robin format that guarantees every team will play four games.  The bracket is then ranked after the round robin by record and points, and a single elimination playoff bracket is made with the top eight teams. Please note: both team members MUST be registered at the same time and you must provide a team name at time of registration on the form. Registration must be received by 10:00 am on June 18th. 

We all know cancer; therefore, players and spectators can designate a cornhole court in honor or memory of a loved one with a $50 donation directly to For Pete’s Sake to support families facing cancer.   You will find this on the registration form and an FPS staff member will follow up to capture the details about your court dedication!

Please check back closer to the date of the event for further details. Also please note, if you are unable to make the rain date, registration fees are non-refundable. If you are having difficulty registering, please contact info@takeabreakfromcancer.org or call (267) 708-0510 for assistance.
