Whistle Binkies Winter Cornhole (Bean Bag) League- PLEASE Share this Info
Whistle Binkies Cornhole League
Whistle Binkies is very excited to offer a Winter Indoor Cornhole League. Leagues will play in the slightly warm comfort of the Beer Garden at Whistle Binkies on the Lake. (It is hoped that the temperature will be somewhere in the 60’s?)
There will be 2 nights of leagues: Tuesday and Wednesday (each night is a separate league). The leagues will begin the week of January 8 and will run for 8 weeks. Following the regular schedule, there will be 2 weeks of Single Elimination Tournament play (beginning the week of March 5).
Format will be Doubles play and can be 2 men, 2 women, or coed. Players must be 18 years of age or older. Matches each week will consist of 3 games played within a 45 minute time frame. Matches will be played at 6:00, 6:45, 7:30, and 8:15. There will be 2 matches played during each time frame. The schedule will allow for up to 16 teams to play each night.
Entry fee will be $30 per team and will be due when you turn in your roster. Teams will be assigned their night of play based on when they turn in their roster and payment. You may have one night as a preferred night of play, or you may list a first and second choice. The more choices you have, the better chance you will have of playing in the League.
At the end of the 8 week regular season, every team will play in a Seeded, Single Elimination Tournament. Seeding will be based on percentage of wins during the regular season. The tournament will be best of 3 games with all teams playing matches the first week of the tournament. The remaining teams will play multiple matches the second week. Payouts will be awarded to the top 4 teams for each night of play: 1st Place $120, 2nd Place $90, 3rd Place $60, 4th Place $30 (based of 16 teams, payouts will be less if there are fewer teams).

As we head back into volleyball after a very warm Memorial Weekend, I would like to take this chance to remind everybody of a few things.....
1) First and foremost, PLEASE remember that we are all here to have FUN!!!!! After all, we are a bar league. The whole idea is to play some volleyball, escape the grind of your daily life, and have some fun with friends (new and old). Please make sure that you are being polite, calling your own fouls (especially net play).
2) Make sure that the captains are reporting the scores at the end of each match.
3) The deadline for making changes to your roster is June 10. If you want to make any additions to your roster, please email Rich with the changes (you cannot make the changes yourself). Keep in mind that if a player does not appear on your roster, they will not be allowed to play on your team...especially during playoffs.
4) SUPER EXCITING... Whistle Binkies on the Lake and LandShark Lager have partnered together to bring you a new special. Captains, please see the bartender this week to pick up your discount cards that will give you unlimited pints of LandShark Lager for only $2.50 each. This special is good only at Whistle Binkies on the Lake and runs 7 days a week, for the entire volleyball season. This is in addition to all of the other great specials available at Whistle Binkies on a daily basis.
Enjoy.....we are happy to have you as part of Whistle Binkies.
Volleyball is only cancelled in the case of threatening weather. Threatening weather is the presence of lightning in the area or dangerous high winds and heavy rain.
DO NOT call the bar to ask if the matches will be played. As a general rule, you should always assume that the matches will be played. Many times it may be raining heavy in the NW part of town, but there will be clear weather SE. I will rarely post the cancellation of matches for the entire night....too often, this type of scenario plays out: The 5:30 matches end up being cancelled due to lightning, but the 6:30 are played in light rain. The 7:30 and 8:30 matches have absolutely beautiful weather.
Procedure should be as follows: assume that the matches will be held. If the weather does not allow the match to start on time, please wait for 20-30 minutes to see if the weather clears....if it does, you can start the match and play as many games as time allows (do not go over the allotted 1 hour of play as it will affect the following matches). If the weather does not clear in the 20-30 minutes, the match should then be cancelled. Unfortunately, the busy schedule does not allow for make-up games.
