JJCA is quite the team, at least that’s what we always say. Sometimes we need to remind ourselves about how good our teamwork is, and the annual Cornhole Games is one of the best places to throw down the gauntlet.
October 7 was the date of our seventh annual contest, and it was as competitive—and creative—as usual. Something was new this year, though, as we crowned newbie Kris Teubel as our 2022 “Cornmissioner” who presided over the games. Linda Mark was the previous Cornmissioner, who seemed plenty happy to turn the bags and boards over to Kris.
“The tournament was hard fought and well-earned this year,” says Kris. “We had great weather and even better personalities as eight teams went head-to-head to earn their way to one of the winner’s medals. We handed out certificates for the best-dressed team, best trick shot, and, best of all, the first team knocked out of the tournament.”
Susan judged the trick shot competition and the participants voted as a group for the best-dressed team.
Each team decided on its own name and costume:
The competition culminated with the top three finishers. Drum roll please…..
Third Place – The Corn Flakes
Second Place – U Can’t Husk This
Champions – A Big Lump With Knobs
Clearly, we compete with a little humor and perhaps a bit more bravado. We love what we do, and enjoy the company of colleagues, especially when we get to express our creativity in playful ways.
