Bags and Brews Summer Kick-off
Sat, May 20, 2017, 2:00 PM – 7:00 PM EDT
Come out and show your skills on the boards, do you have what it takes to walk away with the first place prize?
Whats going down: On 20 May 2017 there will be an epic cornhole tourney held at the Camden VFW to raise money for their community scholarships/programs! There will also be a vehicle show-n-shine, food, brews, raffles, vendors, and music blasting by DJ Twitch....trust me, you won't want to miss this!
20 May is national "go topless" day so for all you jeepers, we will be doing a "back the vets" jeep run from somewhere down south to the VFW; location of convoy start to be determined. Once we arrive at the VFW, the festivities will kick-off.
Cornhole Tourney: Don't worry about practicing with a partner, teams will be decided by drawing numbers the day of the event! The tournament will be bracket style and either single OR double elimination; will depend on how many teams we register. Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third; first place will receive 50% of the registration money with the other 50% going to the VFW which means the more registrations, the bigger the prize!
Show-n-shine: Open to all vehicles! There will be 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places awarded for Jeeps, Cars, Trucks and even Motorcycles! There will also be 1st-3rd for people's choice!
CORNHOLE: Early Registration is now open for $15 and will run till April 15, 2017. On 16 April 2017, registration will jump to $20 and run till 1 May 2017. On 2 May 2017, registration will jump to $25 and run till the night before the event. Registration the day of the event will be $30; REGISTRATION FEES SUBJECT TO CHANGE UNLESS YOU HAVE ALREADY REGISTERED! You will receive an event t-shirt with your registration.
SHOW-N-SHINE: Early Registration is open now for $10 and will run till 1 May 2017. 2 May 2017 up to and including the day of the event will be $20. With your registration, you will receive a goodie bag sponsored by a few vehicle outfitters which are still to be determined. ALL PROCEEDS from the show-n-shine will go to the VFW.
We are expecting to have a few items donated from the local community as well as a few jeep outfitters and a custom set of cornhole boards! Depending on the items, raffles SHOULD range anywhere from $5-20.
If you would like to set-up a booth to sell club apparel or promote your business, contact me as soon as possible so we can figure out the details and pricing for your set-up!
We are looking into a food truck or two...we might just grill-out ourselves, either way, we will have food for sale. Beer will be for sale by the VFW; ALCOHOL MUST BE CONSUMED ON VFW PROPERTY ONLY!
We are looking into having a live band, one way or another there will be music!
This will be the first time we are holding an event of this sort at the Camden VFW; hopefully we can make it an annual expectation! As said before, this event is all about raising money for the VFW Community Programs! Such programs include, but are not limited to, Voice of Democracy, Junior ROTC, Scout of the Year, and the Patriotic Teacher Award. Monies will also be used for Observance day events, flags for the cemeteries, etc.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS, KICKOFF SUMMER RIGHT, BE AT THE "BAGS AND BREWS" CORNHOLE TOURNEY ON 20 MAY 2017!
