Come one, come all for this BYO cornhole tournament hosted on the lawn of FBYC! Running in concert with a casual cookout following the Stingray Point Light Regatta, this is always an absolute blast for members young and old to come out, strut their bag-tossing skills, and vie to grab the throne as Cornhole Champions of FBYC!

We will have the gameboards & bags, so all you need is a team mate, smile and some time to hangout. Our intentions are to follow a simple, single elimination ladder model with initial limit on number of teams set at 16 total. You must register via the club's website here: https://www.fbyc.net/events/2018/180902-social-yam-2nd-annual-cornhole-tournament/

YAM's first ever Movie Night drew a huge crowd with over 40 members!  "The Sandlot" cranked up at 8:45pm and we saw members of all ages joining in the fun...

Wet weather precluded us from being outside on the lawn, but thanks to our perfectly sized front porch we setup under cover and enjoyed zero mosquitos. Attendees brought their own snacks and drinks, and the YAMs surprised everyone with fresh popcorn and a ‘build your own’ candy bar, complemented by a few sodas and waters for all to share.  Big thanks to our YAM Committee helping organize and execute this fun new event; and thanks as always to club manager, Brian Ankrom, for helping organize and setup!

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.
