Tournament Rules:
Boards are placed 30 feet apart from center of hole to center of hole. A coin toss or mutual agreement will establish which team starts. Rules for Players: Each team gets 4 bean bags to throw. Two teams of two players each, team members stand at opposite ends and may throw from either side of the board. Each player throws from behind the front of the board. This is the foul line. The player must not pass the foul line or the players throw does not count and the bag is removed from play. Teams will police themselves on fouls, there will be no officials monitoring every game. Each team alternates shots beginning with the team that had scored last. Scoring will be as follows: Points are scored when a player has a bag on the board or in the hole. A point scored on the board is equal to 1 point, a point scored in the hole is equal to 3 points. Only one team can score per round, points cancel each other. Game is played until one team scores 21 points and wins by 2 points. You do not need to hit 21 exactly, but you must finish the round. A round is defined by throwing “down and back.” To end the game, the bags must be back on the side from which they started. A team can win by a white wash which is 11 - 0. A white wash cannot occur in the first half of the round, you must finish the round (down and back). A bag that is tossed in play and knocks another bag off or in the hole is legal. A bag that bounces from the ground onto the board is not a legal play. Any bag that is touching the ground is not a legal play. These bags must be removed from the board and play is then continued.

***NOTE: When registering, allow one ticket per team member. ie: One team = 2 tickets. Each player must have their own ticket. 2 Teams = 4 players = 4 tickets, and so on. You should have an even number of tickets at the end of registration and cannot have one person singlely playing one time slot, they must have a partner for that same time slot.
