Who will take the podium as Fishing Bay's first ever Cornhole Championship Team??

This coming Sunday, immediately following Stingray Point Light racing and regatta awards, the YAMs are inviting anyone interested in informally strutting their cornhole skills to compete in the first every FBYC Cornhole Tournament. This is an excellent compliment to the BYO informal cookout Sunday evening after racing.

Boards, awards and tournament facilitation will be provided by the Young Adult Members committee. Hosted on the FBYC lawn, all you need to bring is your own beverages, a smile, and semi-competitive spirit to join in the fun. Actual start time will depend on conclusion of regatta awards.
