Rules

Players

Playing

  • Each team will stay in their designated lane for the whole game.
  • Players at the headboard will alternate pitching bags until each player has pitched all their bags.
  • Players at the footboard will take sore and resume pitching back to the other board.
  • The team who scored in the preceding inning pitches first in the next inning. If neither team scored, the team who pitched first in the preceding frame will pitch first in the next frame.
  • Players must be behind the foul line at the time of release.
  • Players must pitch the bag with an underhand release.
  • Games must be completed within the designated timeslot.
  • In the spirit of this fundraising event, fouls will be self-regulated between competing teams.

**Tournament/playing format is subject to change depending on the number of teams registered. 

Scoring

Cancellation scoring will be used for all divisions- the points of one player cancel out the points of their opponent and only one team can score each inning.  The first team to reach or exceed twenty-one points within the designated timeslot is the winner.  If a game has not been completed during that timeslot, scores will be recorded as-is.  In the event of a tie in this case, a shootout will determine the winner.  The shootout will consist of alternating teams throwing a bag until one team makes an isolated bag in-the-hole and the scoring team will be declared the winner.

Winning teams will report scores to Tournament Headquarters after completion of their game. 

  • Bag In-The-Count: Any bag which comes to rest anywhere on top of the board. Each is worth one point.
  • Bag In-The-Hole: Any bag which is thrown through the hole or knocked through the hole by another bag. Each is worth three points.

Prizes

  • Division champion teams receive a $200 cash prize.
  • All participants will receive a large driving range bucket at Victory Legacy Golf Course and a NSC Bucket Hat.
