What better way to spend a beautiful fall Saturday than with a competitive game of trebuchet cornhole! What's trebuchet cornhole you ask? Well, it's what happens when you use 12th Century medieval siege weapons to play America's favorite tailgating game! Instead of tossing the beanbags by hand, you'll be loading them into your team built trebuchet and launching your way to victory.

To sign up all you need is a 4 person team and a competitive spirit; we provide all the rest. The kits have been custom designed by Maven Makers to toss a 1 pound beanbag the regulation distance of 27 feet. We'll provide your team with all the pieces and you'll start by assembling them on site. Once assembled you'll have some practice time to tweak your trebuchet. Even the slightest of changes can make a huge difference! (seriously, the physics involved in trebuchets is insane!) When the practice rounds are over its time to compete. Each team will get a series of rounds to toss their bags at the boards to compete for prizes. The winning teams at the end will be crowned our champions and everyone gets to keep their creations!
