Fargo Beanbag Benefit Tournament Rules:

All teams will consist of two players.  A member from each team will stand at each board.

Standing inside the pitchers box, players from each team alternate tossing bean bags at the opposite board.

Each team tosses 4 bags per inning. Within each inning, a player must toss all bags from the same box.

Cancellation Scoring - In cancellation scoring, corn bags in-the-hole and corn bags in-the-count pitched by opponents during an inning cancel each other out. Only uncancelled corn bags are counted in the score for the inning. (Team ONE scores 6 points - Team TWO’s scores 3 points = 3 Points for Team ONE)

Bags landing on the board count for 1 point. Bags landing in the hole count for 3 points. The team with the most bags on the board or in the hole after each inning will add their points to the total.  The winning team from the last round will toss first in the next round.

Only bags tossed in the pitchers box will count.
Only bags on the board or in the hole will count. If any part of the bag comes in contact with the ground prior to landing on the board then no points are awarded for that bag.

Inning totals are added together for each team until one team reaches 21 points.  The winning team does NOT need to win by 2 or more points.

BUST= If at the end of an inning a team has gone over 21, they go back to 18 and play continues.

SKUNK- If at the end of an inning, one team has 7 or more points and the other team has 0 points, this is considered a skunk and the team with 7+ points automatically wins the game. TEAMS CAN BUY OUT OF A SKUNK WITH AN ADDITIONAL $10 DONATION.  Play then resumes with the same score.

Each team has 5 minutes to report to their next game. If a team does not report to their playing field after 5 minutes they automatically forfeit the game.

Winning teams must report to the scoring table with their final score immediately after the game is complete.

All questions regarding game will be brought to the official tournament judge. All rulings are based on the judge’s best judgment and are final. Unsportsman-like conduct will result in an automatic loss/forfeit of game.
