Corn-hole Anyone?

Have ya'll heard of a game called Corn-Hole? We went to some friend's lake house Saturday and one of the guy's brought it. It was a ton o' fun. Think skee-ball meets the outdoors. It has official rules and everything that you can read about here http://www.playcornhole.org/rules.shtml.

It consists of these bags of corn

and 2 boards that are placed facing each other about 30 feet apart.

The goal is to toss your bag of corn across the grassy knoll and get it in the hole. Get it? Corn-hole. Ahhh... now you get it! I know you probably won't believe this with all my athletic prowess and all, but I didn't win - not one time. Perplexing.

So, if anyone asks you to play Corn-hole, don't be afraid.
