Country & Cornhole. Have you heard of it? Probably not because there are, what – 16 people going? Anyway, we wanted to check in and make sure you – yes, and each every one of the 16 of you – knew about the details of everything that was going on. First and foremost, there will be country music (duh) and a cornhole tournament (ditto) and it will be at the 200 East Art Haus (ditto duh). We have been working in conjunction with the fine people at WFRE 99.9 Free Country.
And here’s what we know:
You can sign up for the cornhole tournament head of time. We mentioned this a handful of weeks ago, but something tells us that it didn’t really resonate. So … let’s try again. In order to sign up for the cornhole tournament, head here. The prizes, as it turns out, will be as such:
- First place: Two free tickets to see Thomas Rhett at The Great Frederick Fair this year.
- Second place: A $100 gift certificate for Dutch’s Daughter.
- Third place: Two $25 gift cards to Carrabba’s.
See, friends. Real prizes.
In addition to signing up online, you can also sign up for the tournament if you show up at 4 p.m. Saturday. At 5 p.m., the cornhole play will officially begin (please note the use of “cornhole play”).
And now, you probably want to know about the country aspect of all this. That’s set to begin at 7 p.m. and it will kick off with perhaps our favorite solo artist in all the land, Ms. Karen Jonas. Then, at 8 p.m., Tom Senseney will take the stage before finally, at 9 p.m., The Knight Brothers will country and roll all night (and party every day). The price for all of this will be $10. That gets you a slot in the cornhole tournament as well as a spot to witness all of the awesome country-ness going on.
Also of note: The Pork Authority will be there selling either pork or authority. Our guess is the former.
We know it’s a busy weekend and there are a zillion options for the day, but hey, man: It’s the middle of May. Why not get up, get out and rock with some country music and some cornhole throwing? It should be a ton of fun, even if a certain 30-something who is losing his hair won’t be on hand. For most people, though, we’re beginning to realize that’s a good thing.
Anyway, viva la 200 East!
